You might have noticed that the blog has changed a bit.
And it all started with this little "favicon".
Etsy has an orange square with E. Hulu has a green square with an h. Ruche has and "R". And so on.
This tiny graphic is only 16 pixels by 16 pixels so you need a graphic that easily recognizable on such a small scale. For mine, I chose a thought bubble with simple heart inside, reminiscent of some of my embroidery hoop art. I love it! It's simple and sweet.

|I created these icons for my navigation bar using Photoshop.|
Then, I changed the fonts on my blog titles and post body. I've been wanting to do that forever and finally found an easy way to do it.
Finally, I cleaned up my sidebars and re-designed my sidebar buttons. I hope you like the changes so far!
