Handmade Library Has a New Look!

You guys. YOU GUYS. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably noticed my

SPIFFY NEW BLOG DESIGN.

Or if you are reading it via a reader, you can’t see it, in which case VISIT THE BLOG SO YOU CAN SEE MY AWESOME REDESIGN.

This has been several weeks in the making, but I couldn’t be happier with it! I designed the whole thing, and my amazing husband, ahem, web developer, Chris, built it. He says it’s very “Elyssa,” and I have to agree.

Don’t worry, the top was to work out the layout. I gave Chris a much better final mockup to work with! Also, the drawing of the face makes me laugh.

You’ve probably noticed some changes in the content of this blog. I’ve been talking a lot more about writing and my endeavors to get better at it. I wanted that to be reflected in the design, hence the typewriter! It’s actually a neat little logo I made a while ago to use on my resume (it’s still on there!), so I just updated the color scheme and added some doo-dads to make it happen. I also made it easier to subscribe, with fancy links in the sidebar that give you three options (so now you have no excuse not to subscribe to Handmade Library—wink).

Overall, I am so happy with the result! What do you think of Handmade Library’s new look?

  1. I love it! It looks FANTASTIC! Wish I had the same “eye” for things like this that you do. Kudos to Chris for making it all happen.

    • Thanks! I don’t think I’ll be able to convince Chris to build another one anytime soon so it’s good I like this one haha.

  2. Mines and elixir routinely harvest the currencies once positioned
    within the floor. One will argue, obviously, to the contrary, until this question, at the very least, cannot be provably settled, no matter what, and must, therefore, be placed
    on ice. The accumbent time arbor is actually scaled evenly.
