New Blog Header Alert!

Hello friends!

Look up! (Or click through if you are reading this in my email subscription or Google Reader!)

I just put up my new blog header! I am working out changing some of the colors on my blog to match it better (I’m thinking a gray background instead of purple now, and maybe a white banner around the header… thoughts?)… but as for now, what do you think?!

Here was the runner up, with a photo of my Curried Barley Chickpea Salad instead of the Zesty Kumquat Quinoa Salad currently in the one above — I had a really hard time deciding between the two!


And for previous reference — my old header!


The new one is very different, but I think I like it! I love that it includes my logo and matches my business cards now… cohesion is a good thing :) I just need to get used to seeing it when I open my blog now!


So… what are your thoughts?? :) I hope you love it!

A big thank you to my awesome graphic designer Bailey for dealing with 134098230948209 rounds of edits with me! She’s the best :)

    Looks great! Although they both look delicious the quinoa salad makes for a prettier picture.

    The new header caught me by surprise when I logged on- but I love it! Great design! I think a gray background would look nice too.

  13. 14

    I love it! I think they gray and white combo would look great as well though!

    Wow, Anne–it looks GREAT! It’s colorful, inviting, friendly, and really seems to reflect your interests and passions. The purple, navy, and gray is gorgeous!

    I love the new one and love the colors. I love everything about it. No gray, but that’s just me, I don’t like gray anything. But if decide on gray, I will learn to love it.

    Love it! Great colors and contrast. Really captures your/the blog’s personality!

    I love the new photos and the new header — keep the purple! I loved the original colors of the purple/rasberry with the greens. I don’t think gray will work, but I’d have to see it first to be sure.

    I love it! It looks fANNEtastic! :)

    Love it!

    Looks good! But did you save it as .jpg or .png? If you didn’t save it as .png, I suggest doing that to get rid of some of the graininess.

    Anne, I love the blue row under your header that says Home About Me Recipes, etc. I love the color. It is blue (correct). I have difficulty with some of the different shades of color sometimes, some blues are actually green and visa versa but that is a physical problem I have. Anyway I love the colors. It pops.

    It looks fANNEtastic!!!
