As you can see, I'm shaking things up a bit. I hadn't changed my banner since early summer, so I'm trying this one on for size...not sure yet...what do you think? The bunting is made from recycled newspaper with a wash of color like these. Another reason for change is font consistency...I had been (lower case) maya*made up until June, and I could never figure out how to keep it that way with my current blog template. So I'm going back to my original lower-case look, regardless of whether this test banner stays or goes.
For quite a while, my To Do list has included organizing and tidying up this little blog, but a flurry of attention to maya*made has made me rush for the cleaning supplies. I feel like a bunch of lovely unexpected guests have have been popping in, and I'd better sweep up fast! Without Technorati, as my search friend, I might not have known you all were peeking in. I've been trying to incorporate some of the fantastic blogging tips from Meet Me At Mikes. So thanks for all of the generous links to your sites, and a big welcome to the many new friends joining in...and what would I do without you, my crew of faithful readers (you know who you are!) that keep me creating and inspired. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the great feedback you've all been giving me. If this felt like an acceptance speech, you weren't mistaken..it kind of was...I was totally honored to receive a blog award from Julie earlier this month and from Fancy-Pants-design this week.
The rules for receiving this award are:
1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.
So please check out these wonderful folks if you don't already know them:
4. one pretty thing
7 .Bridgman Pottery
and just for good measure I added one more...
And lastly, there seems to be enough interest in my refashioned/upcycled T-shirt...so I'll be working on a tutorial for you. Have a beautiful day!
