New Home, New Look

Got intrigued with the title? No, it is not about me though I have this new look too because I had my hair permed three weeks ago. What I am referring to is my other site Mom’s Ups and Downs. It is now self-hosted, teehee! And because of that it deserves a new look. I am still saving for the personalized template so I just used the Twenty Ten template and customized it. I was surprised that it’s not that hard to tweak a WordPress template.

Here are what I did. I searched for free clip arts and and made the header using photoshop and so are the background and favicon. I changed the fonts and its colors by searching for the color html codes and tweaked the css file so it would match the color of the background and header. Voila! A new fresh looking site.

By the way, the girl in the header is from RJ’s picture which I made into a cartoon by coloring it in photoshop. It took me quite a long time to finish it but it is all worth my effort. The new layout made me think twice if I still need to order for a personalized one. What do you think?
