New Banner for ShoeLove

So, I finally tweaked the ShoeLove banner like I said I would.

It took me a while, as I have been uber-busy this week. As I said earlier, Chris drew this lovely little stick figure of a shoe lover on a post-it note. (Be sure to check out her new blog about these adorable little guys—called My Stick Figure Diary.)

Anyway, I had taken the post-it note with the drawing that she gave me, stuck it on a little green leather box that I have in my office and then took a picture of it. 

The original post-it was green, so I had intended to just open the photo in Photoshop and change the background to white to use for the banner. But then I liked how the photo turned out so much, that I ended up using the whole photo. When Chris saw it, she agreed! Our first design collaboration—I'm pleased with how it turned out.

So, now, I have changed the font and I think it's complete! Now to get working on posts and the side bar, right Chris?

Absolutely! I'll make some nice stuff for the side wrap this weekend. And for those of you wanting to visit my stick figure diary, keep an eye out for posts starting to appear this weekend. I have lots of drawings to post, too!

Awesome job on the banner design, G!
