Heads above the rest?

Peeps. Did I tell you I won my first-ever giveaway (a free prize from another blog) on the lovely Leslie's blog, A Room Somewhere? The prize was a custom-designed blog header from Jill of Freshly Squeezed Designs. I was ecstatic, considering the current sea*life*style header is something I jury-rigged myself back when I started s*l*s - needless to say, it's not the most professional looking thing ever. Behold, the current header:

(You can also just look up to the top of the page to see it full size and in full color - as long as you're actually on my blog and not reading this post through an aggregator).

Now, here's what Jill came up with for this site:
(....drum roll, please....)

What do you all think?

I would love to hear your thoughts, so please feel free to leave a comment below. However, I've been picking up what you're all puttin' down and I know some of you said you don't always have time to leave a comment or sometimes you just want to be "quiet" online (see? I do listen to you all!). SO. If you don't want to comment but have a second to literally click a button for "old" or "new" instead, I'm trying out my first-ever in-blog poll. Today is a day of all kinds of new things, huh?

Here is my first attempt at an automated poll; please give it a go!:

If you want to comment, please do! If you don't want to comment, maybe just submit via poll? If you don't want to do either, I understand. I still love ya!

And here's to hearing what you think about the header sitch. Thanks and cheers!

  1. wow called out on a blog! i feel famous! i was already on my way to say i love the new header. i love the color and fade and waves. you should paint this on the side of your scooter.
    the only thing i'm less likely to do than leave a comment is fill out a quiz! anyways
    this look is a winner, i think it will be a perfect space for you.

  2. Katie: hilarious! I just laughed for a solid minute reading your comment. (And thanks for commenting, by the way!) Ooh fun idea re: putting it on the scooter! And good to know re: the quiz/poll - noted! Thanks again! R :)

  5. Thanks for leaving a note, Casey! I know I've totally been MIA this week - bad blogger, bad! I'm hoping to be back by Monday or Tuesday. I promise, this is not the end of sea*life*style! Please do check back and I'll hope to have new stuff up for you! xo, R
