I’ve just given my little blog a makeover. I was tired of the generic WordPress.com Blix theme, and frustrated with the fact that the width of the content was only 450px, when the standard horizontal Flickr image is 500px. So, I decided to give css customization a go. There is still a little tweaking to be done, but otherwise the update is complete. What do you think? Does everything display nicely on your browser?
For the header, I used a photo of Droste dutch process cocoa swirling into cream for ice cream. Man, I need to make that ice cream again sometime soon, it was sinful! I made the header and background all girly-pretty with some brushes in PS7 that I had collected from Echoica a long time ago. Yes, it’s true that it’s a sickeningly sweet swirl of chocolate and vanilla, but I love it. It makes me want to lick the screen, or maybe even go for a swim in that chocolate cream swirl up there.
