New Background Color, Blog Give Away & The Sun Came Out



I changed the background color from black to ochre and wonder how many of you prefer this? Is it easier to read having black type on a lighter background? If you leave your comment I will put your name in a drawing to win a cool prize. I am away from home and don't have any pics on my laptop to show you but the prize will consist of some of my dyed ribbons and other little dyed fabric goodies! I will have the drawing on Sunday, Dec. 21. BE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR EAMIL CONTACT for me in your comment!

Yesterday the sun did indeed come out for me. I took a three mile walk but wasn't able to swim in the ocean as the waves were strong and the water was churning brown. I did swim in the pool and soaked up some rays before I went to visit my dear friend in the hospital. Later I went to Joe's on the Green to hear a local musician. I have known her for years but am not sure I am spelling her name correctly, I have to find that out. Kaualani has a voice like a dream and is a very strong Hawaiian woman! I snapped some pictures of the sun setting and my day surroundings.

I walked again this morning but rain this afternoon. HiHo, it's still warm and better than cold, freezing rain!





I have many photos but am working on creating a slide show and that might not be until after I get home.

Aloha for now.

Oh, the green is lovely and I find it much easier to read! White text and dark backgrounds have always challenged my eyes. Also love the photos--looks like aloha to me! jood

Definitely better this way, Lorri. Looking good! I'm envious of your vacation.

I like it much better this way, Lorri! Much easier on the eyes and it still shows off the art and photos! Aloha. :) xo, Fran

Much easier to read! It's actually a sort of banana-y color on my end, but way better than black! (tracey at sunshinefactory dot net)

The ochre background provides a very fresh feel. However, I think your banner lost some appeal. Could you put a black border around it?
