A Win!

Hooray!! I won something!! I rarely win things. *super happy dance*

The lovely Donna, of Donna Duncombe Designs, had a giveaway over on her blog this week. And I happened to win the digital prize - I got to choose something from her digital section of her Etsy shop. So exciting! I chose a pack of digital scrapbook papers, the Daydreamer pack.

Thanks to Donna, I have now upgraded my blog background. I have been itching for a change, I really just chose the previous textured paper look rather quickly when I was trying to get set up last year, always thinking I would change it eventually, but the last time I updated the look of the blog, I couldn't find anything I liked better. So this was a rather lovely little surprise. 

I am working on being able to use the single continuous design, rather than tiled as it is at present, but my Blogger and I are not getting along when it comes to that issue at present. We will work it out. :)

Also, considering going back to a white background for the posts...what is your opinion? Is it too busy behind the main text? Would it be better with white?

I am still itching to do a hand illustrated header, but that will have to wait for now. Too many new orders to fill!! (A good problem to have, but I must get cracking on those orders).

Thanks to Donna for the lovely giveaway. Donna also creates funky crochet hooks - you should totally go check them out.


  1. Yay! I'm glad you like it :)
    Definitely go with white or a light blue for the posts. That way it's easy to read, but still highlights the background :)
    I'd try and give you a hand, but blog designs generally end up with me cursing at the computer lol

    1. Thanks, Donna! I was thinking pale blue might work well. I'll play around with it now. :)

  2. well done! its always exciting to win something and the background looks great!!
