I want to create a happy place here filled with colour and joy and things that make you smile. As part of that I have been willing to change my banner for a while now. I liked my old polka-dotted one, but wanted something that communicated the variety of things you can find on my blog. To accomplish this, I asked the help of photographer Bram Berkien, who in the past has also done a photo shoot with us for the Big Bug Collection.
I think he did a great job: don’t these pictures make you happy instantly? I couldn’t help myself but to make a gif of me playing the ukulele and to add the random picture of me lying in the grass with the red coat. It was still quite cold that day and in between pictures I put on my coat. In this particular one Bram was making a couple of test pictures to check the arrangement/light/whatever photographers do. When going through the pictures afterwards this one made me laugh; I think I look so content all snuggled up in my warm layers not caring about pictures or anything really at that moment.
If you like these pictures, you should definitely check out Bram’s site and tell him something along the lines that he is good or other things that serve well as ego-boosts. I especially like the shoot he has done inspired by an Amélie-theme.
My blog is still a work in progress; I am planning to make a couple more changes. Perhaps you noticed that I have made a visual overview of my DIY’s and of my small projects to make others happy. You can also find an overview of my creative challenges. Feel free to check them out and browse through some of my old posts.
As I am still working on further improvements, I would like to ask you something. Do you ever use the labels on the sidebar or the blog-archive to browse through a/my blog or do you find them unnecessary? Also, are there any other platforms to follow a blog that you would like to see here that I am not using? I would love to get some feedback on this from you guys!
