It’s a curse and a blessing….This visual boredom I get. I know a lot of you probably read this blog thru your readers so you’re more interested in the content. But not I… I like to hit the page directly, see everything, on everyone else’s blog, too. The first thing I notice is the header.
For two years I’ve been updating my blog banner’s monthly. It’s an easy way for me to stay tuned in with my photoshop software and a welcome break from drawing. It helps me to get over the hump of a difficult sketch and will inspire me if I’m in a rut.
Here are my twelve 2012 banners used on this site.
JANUARY- limited the banner to 6 pictures.
FEBRUARY- quite simple…used the ROYGBIV theme, first pic red, then orange…
MARCH- not my favorite…the black/white stripe is too strong.
APRIL- more my style….light and fun.
MAY- “d” is for draw, doodle….this turned out better than expected.
JUNE- “j” is for june. This is kinda boring.
JULY- Not much art here…but it’s interesting.
AUGUST- much better use of black. One of my favorites.
SEPTEMBER- a little too busy.
OCTOBER- very simple….and one of my favs.
NOVEMBER- different format.
DECEMBER- lots of Christmas going on.
Again, I wish these banners remained “static”. Meaning that they stay with the posts at the time the posts were uploaded. But such is not the case. And I’m probably the only one that cares. Possibly there will be an app in the future that will enable me to do that. But for now…this is as good as it gets.
Am I the only one that notices blog banners or even cares? Haha

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
