Change Is

So as you can see, if you are a regular viewer of my blog, I have changed the layout a little.  What do you think? 

I like the look of the old one better, but I think that the layout of this one might be a little more practical because it’s wider.  I wanted to try this one on for size and I may switch back if it doesn’t wow me.

In other news, I made a new book (Tea Ceremony Hand-bound Journal) and posted it on my Etsy shop.

I also rephotographed the other books that I made so they look a lot more appealing.  You can see the new and improved listings here if you like.  Today I may do more bookmaking or I may continue my work on the two paintings that I’ve been working on for-eeevv-VER.

    I love your new tea ceremony book! Very nice. I like, too, how the blue inner cover compliments the picture.
    I was also thinking that your books might be even better if they had a proper pocket… (half fold or slanted fold)
    either in the book or on the back cover. One of the features i love about the journals I use is one or two pockets to put keepsakes in, articles I want to remember, poems…something like that….just a thought for the future.
    Also….and I’m not sure it would work on your books…I love having that elastic, attached to the back cover, to pop over the book so things I slip into the pages don’t fall out.

    I find it hard to vote on style….I love seeing the girls at the top of the page….and they are happy, smiling, but nothing says it is you melody j martin….know what I mean? I like the wider layout…colors are OK and don’t detract from the pictures you post… I know it’s a work in progress…maybe, too, I’m missing something.

What are you thinking?
