Yep, you’re in the right place. I just made a change to the design here.
That’s when I sought out a hand lettering artist and I found just the right person in Caitlin Welsh, who runs the Etsy shop CharlieWhiskey. Caitlin does all kinds of very cool stationary, wedding stuff and all kinds of custom work. I’m a fussy customer and she worked with me on drafts until we found exactly what I was looking for. She even spent extra time doing something special to a handwritten “The” that I ended up not using in the final logo/header. Maybe it will show up in the future.
Anyway, that cool looking “Impatient Gardener” you see up there at the top of the page is actually her hand lettering. I love that.Here’s a quick guide to what’s what here on the new design.
Those little black icons on the right are the quick way to connect with me and the blog in more ways than you’ll probably ever want to (but do it, anyway). They are, in order, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Bloglovin, send me an email and subscribing to posts.A lot of you receive my posts by email and the link to sign up for that is right under all those icons.
My favorite way to follow blogs is Bloglovin because it has such a clean interface that works well on all my devices.
I still have the Instagram preview over there, just in a different format so you can get a peek at what I’ve been doing over there. That’s often where you’ll get real-time updates of what I’m working on weeks (sometimes months) before they end up on the blog.
And I’ve added a Popular Posts widget as well. I enjoy these on other people’s blogs so I’m hoping you enjoy these here too. That window box post (which is currently in the No. 1 position) is far and away the most popular post ever, and it’s from 2010. I think that means I need to do more how-to posts.
One of the things I like on other blogs, is the links to other posts on similar topics, so you’ll find that below each post as well.
You can still pin images from here to Pinterest using the hover “Pin it” button that appears over every image (although less obviously than before). Please feel free to pin away from here, but I do as that you keep or add source information if you have time to. Last week alone I went through four different copyright disputes because my content was posted on other spammy type sites without permission or any kind of credit.
