Make Over!

Darcy at Graphically Designing re-opened her queue for those wanting a blog makeover. I certainly do. Blogger's bland modern beige template is just not doin' it for me anymore. I'm more of a simple person, but this template is just way too simple.

In preparation of her overhaul here, I've been surfing the web looking for stock photos and graphics that I like. My first thought was a wheat/ farm theme (sometimes, I'm a little too literal with the whole "harvest" thing).
Then, I started thinking about how my boys love to bring me bouquets of dandelions. They have no idea that other people in the neighborhood spray them with pesticides or that our neighbor downwind of us wishes we'd spray them with pesitcides!

I found a few things I like, or could come to like with some tweaking. And, I know there are elements of this blog I like (how wide it is) and elements of other blogs I don't like (when sidebar backgrounds end at differing levels and it looks like an upside down bar graph). I think I'm more of a "floater" for sidebars. Anyway, prepare to say good by to modern beige and I hope you'll look forward to seeing something more eye catching!
