Fresh new look; same girly colours

A few hours were spent here designing, coding and reverse engineering HTML templates.
I did not feel particularly inclined to editing a mass of background images, and thus decided to work on a less graphics intensive layout.

The downside of this is the need to plunge into a huge ream of symbols. I came back out alive and armed with better CSS style sheets manipulation skills.

The three strawberries at the top might be replaced with a lavender and strawberry shot to match the link colours and the cover of “Good Writing Guide”.

Actually, Blogger's templates are quite user friendly. It can be figured out and reverse-engineered with not too big a headache.

Eh, i like! =)
I especially like the banner. Hehe.. I like light coloured (double) borders, and banners that match the background. Hehehe.. =))

Has blogger changed its features a lot? Do tell (briefly will do) cos I havent logged in to my dashboard for a veryyy long time. Haha..

I want to continue experimenting & editing new layouts too. But erm... Since the blog & layout was a pressie, and since the blog has its "meaning" (explain again later on IM if u've forgotten bout it), I can't...

Sad in a way, cos I wana make new layouts (or install new skins) at main blog - and eventually get good at it. But happy cos whenever I see my blog, it reminds me of my presie. =)

Sonia:
I can't remember the changes; they are the result of an accumulation of small changes, nothing shocking.

Yes, i remember your present. Strange little conundrum you are stuck in...

Politikus:
And narrow columns make the entries look frighteningly long.

Haha, you're... you.
