So here I am 13 months along and loving every moment of my amazing, incredible blog journey. I still have to keep pinching myself at how lucky I have been. It has been a whirlwind year of fun and meeting amazing people.
Last week I finally added my new blog header. And trust me a my closest blog friends know, I have pondered over this for months do I? Don’t I? You see I love my old header, my little family all squeezed into a box. But I was also mindful that it was personal to me, and whilst yes, it is my blog. I didn’t want it to appear unapproachable, and want visitors to feel they were intruding. Does that make sence?
I was mulling this over with my friend Simonne, who suggested Georgia Ragnall. Georgia is an art student, and from our initial chat I just knew she understood exactly what my blog and I were all about. From this moment onwards I was so excited about what she would create for me.
Georgia, thank-you so much I am thrilled with your creation. It represents my crazy little family perfectly. I looked at it and knew it was us immediately.
I just wanted to revisit my old blog headers, and say good old friend, friends,and I have had a few. Sentimental I know but a little goodbye.
Ah my very first blog header, I spend ages on this header learning exactly how to navigate around Monkey Pic. I spent hours reading how to’s and watching you tube, trying to work out how to make a blog header.
This is what inspired me to start my newly blogger series. I honestly had no clue about even the basics. It has been a real learning curve, but also all very exciting to learn all these new skills.
I feel so much affection looking back at my first header, I know don’t laugh. But at the time I was so proud of my achievement and kept going back to look at my handiwork.
Header no.2 didn’t last long, I wanted it to look plainer but couldn’t get on with it.
Header no.3 was my favourite, I put this on at the start of the summer and filled it with happy memories of family holidays. To me it’s so bright and sunny and will always make me smile. But then came winter and it just didn’t fit the season.
Header no.4 I love the festive season and this one was a great way to share some of our festive images, but alas like the festive season it was short-lived, then looked a little sad afterwards so had to be changed.
Header no.5 is filled with images of our first 2 visits as Q Hotel ambassadors, so this will always be special to me. I love working with Q Hotels and this header reminds me of how wonderful they are and how special they make us feel when we visit them. Just like part of the family.
Georgia is now working on a festive header for me so that at Christmas we can have a bit of sparkle and snow. I know its ages off but better to be prepared. I just know this header is going to start with me for quite some time, I think it is what I have been looking to achieve in all my collage headers. It represents how happy my family make me, but in a cleaner uncluttered way.
Thank you Georgia you hit the nail right on the head with my new creation. It just shows the incredible talent the young people of our country have to offer.
