    Hi Kitt, really love the new header, especially the treatment of your name. I also like that you used two different flower photos instead of just using one and mirroring it. Green is my favorite color and the deep one you have chosen makes a nice noticeable statement.

    I think it looks beautiful! I’d love to see your name even bigger – maybe someone else has written that (I haven’t had a chance to read all comments) – I’ll love it either way!

      Bigger! No, aside from being too narcissistic if I go any bigger, this size fits on mobile devices’ scrreens. Too big and it gets cut off.

        Ohhh. no, that wouldn’t be good for it to be cut off – it would kind of defeat the purpose, ha ha! I don’t think it’s being nar. (i hate spelling that word, so I’m lazy) – you’re too humble!!! It’s a lovely name and a lovely font = perfect match!

    Hee, design is fun. My only ‘problem’ is that I do it once and I’m pretty much set from there!

      Good for you. Keeps you from wasting hours and hours of time obsessing over changes.

        Yup! I take advantage of InstantWP (http://www.instantwp.com/) to design it on my computer, and then once I’ve got it just right, push it all out in one go. I don’t know about you, but I also fret about things being change where people could see it!

          That’s a great resource. I just change it in real time. WP has a way to save snapshots of your site.

    I love the look. It is very Celtic and I appreciate the Celtic touch in just about everything. 🙂

    Design is one of my favorite things. I personally like where you’re going. I’m not sure if the vines are built into the font but I kind of imagined them being a different color from the letter.

    I love Celtic fonts. Some of my favorites are of this type (or inspired by) are Stonehenge, Celtic MD, Spiral Initials,Celtic Knot, and Celtic 101 — I just don’t know if they’re free to use for this type of endeavor. Still, I love to see where you’re going!

      The vines were part of that font. It is a different font than the rest of the name. I will check out the fonts you named. Thanks!

        I like the ones you used. I’m all about combining fonts. It’s never easy to come up with a logo. I personally change my mind quite a lot before finally settling.

          You were right that the font’s vines’ colors could be changed. After messing around with them, I decided to keep it simple for now (my husband pointed out readability issues) with DS Celtic 2 (Dan Smith’s fantasy fonts).

      Actually, I just looked those fonts up. I had downloaded a few of those and ruled out a couple. Thanks!

    Something to consider, but I normally don’t know really what someone’s blog looks like since I mainly read & comment using the WordPress app on my phone.

    So every time someone changes their look, that may be the first time that I actually look at their blog using a web browser.

    I wonder if I am in the minority, reading this way?

      Actually in 2014, my top referrals were 1) Facebook, 2) Twitter, 3) WordPress.com Reader, 4) bipolarbloggernetwork.com, and 5) plus.google.com. So, some – but not all or even most – of my viewers read my blog using the Reader. Great point, though.

    I like it!

    I almost would prefer just one of the letters ornate though – maybe the O? it’s up to you though.

    and I adore the flowers 🙂
