Metaphorical Mops and Virtual Cleaning

I got out my metaphorical mops today, because I decided it was time for a virtual spring (or, ahh, late summer) cleaning.

The first things to change were the colours of all my text, since I feel like I had outgrown my different shades of red and pink. If you are having trouble reading the new shades, please let me know!

The second change came in the form of a new header, because once I had changed all the colours, I felt like a new header was in order too. I actually took this picture almost a year ago in Iceland, but it had been languishing on my hard drive for far too long. Today I cropped it into a header appropriate size, figured out how to get it to the right sized, and swapped it in.

The final thing I feel the need to ramble on about it the fact that I signed up for Tumblr today! You can come visit me at Eclectic Enthusiasm. If you want to follow my tumblings, but don't use Tumblr, you can follow me on Twitter and be notified right in your feed I whenever post something new. I think I'm going to use it to mostly to share random images I come across that I don't have a use for here on the blog, but want you to see. I will probably share some of my own work too.

Do you like the new colours? Also, do you have Tumblr, or any that you absolutely love?


UPDATE: I completely forgot till after I hit publish, but I'm headed out tomorrow morning on a last minute trip with a friend, so I won't be around for the next few days, but I will answer all your comments when I get back early next week. Have a great weekend!


  1. Great post! Have a nice weekend;)

  2. Like the new makeover!! i wish I could revamp my blog, but it's all custom HTML codes, so I'm stuck unless I want to pay someone :o/ I have a tumble, though I rarely use it. I'll follow you on there though :)

  3. I think it looks good - although the blue is a bit hard to see against the mauve background x


  4. Looks like a proper spring-clean and the result is great. I don't use tumblr, or flickr or any of these... but who knows, maybe one day... Enjoy your trip!

  5. I love giving my blog a spring clean out, makes me feel so much more refreshed! I like the grey + mint green. It's just the blue that is a little hard to read on my computer. :)

    Pretty picture!
