New Theme

July 10, 2008

Tada! It’s not flashy, but that’s why I really like it. I’m using 45 Degrees by Color Light Studio. I edited it by changing the overall width, colors and header to my liking, though. I might make some small tweaks still, but overall it’s how I want it to look.

I’d like to thank my mother for lending her artistic talents to create my new logo (she called it “Beauty and Brains”), the glasses-wearing, line drawing likeness of me up there. After whining to her that I was stuck and couldn’t come up with a logo, she crafted that for me, oh, in about a minute (literally) and sent it over IM several evenings ago.

She said it was just a draft, but I told her that it was perfect and not to worry about sending anything else. She was a little hesitant, but let me use it anyway! Aren’t moms just the bestest? :-)

I love it! It’s a keeper! You should add more visible borders to the input boxes, though. It threw me off! :)

I like this new theme – definitely it has its own appeal and it matches subject of this website, good luck!

While Cutline is a incredibly-great theme, it is overused. Congrats on branching out and making something your own. W00t!

Mrs. Pop – Thank ya!

Dave – Thanks for saying so. I tried to go the “decluttered” route, so I’m glad you noticed.

Identity – Thanks! I never thought of it as “matching”, but I guess I can see that.

Patrick D. – I agree! I got really bored of the Cutline theme, and as great as it is, I just had to see something different. Thanks for the compliments!

I really like your newer theme also! It’s very clean and refreshing. I recently changed themes on some of my sites to Thesis also and they look so much better! Thanks for sharing!
