Inspiration and New Things

I've had a busy week over here, even if I don't have much to show for it as far as posts go. If you follow Oh Whimsical Me on Facebook, I'm sure you got the heads up that I have been dutifully working on some different designs, contemplating the direction I wanted to take a few things, as well as working through some real life stuffs. It has been a week full of inspiration digging and decluttering, with a bit of relaxation and fun squeezed in.

You may notice that things look a little different around here and I couldn't be more excited about it. I've worked hard on this new design. Although things aren't entirely in order yet, Blogger has been giving me quite a fit, I'm still happy to share it with you. You'll just have to excuse a bit of mitch-match for a few more days. Anyway, I thought'd it be fun to share with you a few images that inspired the new direction and design.

I'm always drawn to cool, muted colors. I think it is apparent in my wardrobe as well as my home decor. I want that to transfer over into this space as well, for I always want OWM to be a reflection of me and to feel nice and personal. You'll see that I actually didn't stray too far from the color palette I had before. I just updated it a bit. I wanted OWM to feel a bit more clean and crisp and fresh. I hope I accomplished that.

To help with the cleaner, crisper vision, I have also improved the way you can navigate this blog. If you're a regular visitor, you may have already noticed this update already, as I was testing it out last week. If you select a category from the sidebar, doing so will now take you to a page with links to all posts under that category. I love this improvement. You can now see all categorized posts easily, instead of searching through a tagged list of posts. Be sure to check it out (but keep in mind it is still in need of a few minor updates coming sometime this week)!

Also, be sure to like Oh Whimsical Me on Facebook so you never miss a post and for little extra updates and stories. I've got lots of things coming your way this week!

What's new with you? Did you miss me?
