Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm sorry, but the other night I sat down to write and instead of writing, I found myself redesigning my blog.

Nothing major.  I just made it look a little less-cluttered and changed my color scheme.  The orange/black* just wasn't doing it for me.

*Orange/black only really looks good on my Philadelphia Flyers**.

**And Halloween.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Unless you hate it.  In that case, I don't want to know what you think.  But I'm always open for suggestions.

Oh, and speaking of redecorating: I cleaned my apartment and finally finished unpacking everything from when I moved in back in the summer.

I also finally got my first piece of artwork framed and ready to hang up on my bare walls.  A few months ago, I commissioned Leaurxa to recreate something that I had seen on her blog that I fell in love with:

Awesome, right?

When you look at it, just try to pretend that there's no reflection.  I'm a really bad photographer, but fear not: I am taking a photography course next weekend, so as to cross another thing off of my list of things I want to accomplish this year.

Anyway, you can check out Leaurxa's original picture, sans reflection, along with the entire comic of which it is a part, here.  And check out the rest of her awesome stuff while you're there.

And I'll be around next week to write more stuff for you guys.

  1. The blog looks good! Very clean. And that's awesome artwork!

  2. I really like your new look. Very clean and very readable.

  3. LOve the new look! And ha, these bones make me look fat? TOO funny!

  4. I really do like the new look! I love how simple it is, and especially love the little heart. Very nice.

    And look at you, being all productive and getting so much done. The artwork is awesome, and I really like how it's framed. Very cool. Your walls will be so thrilled to not only no longer be bare, but to have something original and exceptional on them.

    And, I spotted Sadie in the reflection, which always makes me happy, so this post has become a complete success :)

  5. Pft it so sucks,,lol had to.

    Yeah looks great, very clean and easy to read.

  6. I love love love the picture. Three loves.

  7. I like it. Simple is always good.

  8. I like this design much, much better. I tend to like blogs that don't have dark backgrounds because it's easier to read the posts. Sadie looks great, I mean the artwork looks great!

  9. Is that a heart I see?! =]

    I like it. Simple is better. I'd only say make your heading a tad bigger. Good luck with the class - hoping to see more photos coming soon!

  10. I like the new look! Makes it less obvious when I'm checking you out at work ;-) The artwork is creepy great!

  11. Liking the new look! Grey is so underrated!
    And Leaurxa's work is awesome!

  12. Great new look. Clear and easy to read.

  13. I like the new layout.

    And I dunno, I think the doggie watermark on the piece adds to the flair...

  14. Love the new clean look! And...I'm pretty much DYING of envy at your Leauxra print. Beautiful. Why didn't I think of asking her to commission something for me?!?

  15. Personally I don't really like the new look, it seems a bit unfinished, like its missing flair, but I dont know how to design a blog at all so don't listen to me!

    Awesome print, I'll definitely have to check out the artist :)

  16. Looks good. And I can see Sadie!


  17. I do like your new look! Very 2014 (meaning: you are ahead of your time).


  18. I love Sadie sniffing her rib cage. haha. Love the new digs...much cleaner. I like the colors, the grey/white/scarlet. We can keep the orange & black in Flyer chants and sweaters.


  19. Wow! That looks great framed! (Sorry, I've been avoiding the internet for a few weeks, and I only just noticed this). Lookin' good!

    I need to declutter my page, too. Redecorating is HAWT. :)
