Changes and Confusion

Changes are good.  I think, not sure if I like it yet.  Still needs some tweaking.  It was time for a new banner that reflected my current work.  But then the other colors needed changing, also need to adjust the lettering.  I thought a new banner would be a simple change.   Wish I could figure out how to stretch the banner so it went a little further across the page.  I'll work on it.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to add my name to the banner.  I've been so confused lately.  I sell locally as Cyndee Starr, I use Cynthia Eloise on my blog and Etsy.  My mother was the only one that called me Cynthia, and usually when I was in trouble.   I chose Eloise to use as my blog name because it is my middle name.  So I get asked "who am I".  Well, I am Cyndee Starr of Eloise's Collage.  Eloise is the more brave, daring part of me.  The one that says "I can do this".   Eloise is also the one that says I am comfortable with who I am and where I am in life.  

So what do you think?  

Busy weekend ahead, my oldest daughters birthday is Saturday.  My youngest is running the Portland Marathon Sunday, and middle grandson has a football game.   Going to need some quieter weekends to get stuff ready for the coming events.  But I don't think it's going to happen any time soon.

Hope you have a great weekend, get out and enjoy the change in the season.  It feels good to put a jacket on, and return to long pants.  Soup and chili season.

Cyndee, I like the view of your current work.! ANd that it looks like a collage. I agree it's all so confusing. I use my birth name as opposed to my married name. Sometimes people don't know who I am. It's kind of funny. LIke you already said... Brighten the lettering up a bit and stretch it out. But you probably don't have the 20 hours today to figure out how to do it. xoxo Terah

I like the change! And I'm glad to formally meet you Cyndee! I go by my middle name, so I know what you mean about "who am I"... That's one of the reasons I choose "Pieces of D" many people just choose to call me D... as opposed to Dorothy or Dianne! Have fun this weekend with the kids!

Love your banner the colors are great for your blog here.

I have learn at using my monitor for measuring you know like when you are looking at a blog...I usually start off with a blank page, then morph my pictures into that page going according to the width of my viewing area that is.

I hope this had help a little bit.

Oh I love you Blog too!
