Don't Worry

My site hasn't been taken over by the most boring hackers ever. It just got what may be the most underwhelming makeover in internet history.

I've been tired of the header for a while now but never know exactly what I want to change it to, so it's always on my list of things to procrastinate about. But the new blogger template I wanted to use required a different sized image up top. Since I no longer have photoshop, any money, or any ideas, I just went with something simple and easy until inspiration strikes.

The plan is for it to be temporary, but I wouldn't hold your breath for any rapid changes if I were you.

Just wanted to let you know since I'm sure you were all really worried, like maybe some monochromatic terrorists are holding me and my blog hostage. Nope. Maybe we'll get some colors and swirly designs and patterns and widgets and columns and such one day.

Try picnik.com ... it's like the easy free photoshop-ish website, haha.

I like it, Ashley, actually. It's good to change things up!

WTF? This is so not Ashley. Girl, I used the free "paint" program that came with my computer and FastStone Image Viewer that I downloaded off the internet. Maybe you want to check those out.

GIMP is a great photoshop alternative. I found it really easy to use, and I've kinda missed it after going back to PS, even. I do miss the old header a bit, though. I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

alternatively, i'm sure some of your photoshop-having fans would be more than happy to donate a new header.

I'm pretty sure the monochromatic terrorists have hit my blog too since I made the move to my own domain. I totally understand where you're coming from. If you find yourself with any spare templates/photoshop software/money/inspiration feel free to send some my way.

You sound so Monotone, in your typing, Miss Ashley. What's going on? You aren't telling us something! Hope all is well.

No, nothing is wrong, I promise! I'm happy, just busy--I've been cleaning out the garage and going through baby clothes this week...not fun stuff. I think the dull look might make me seem/sound down!

More than the lack of photoshop, the lack of an idea or plan is the big problem here. All is well, though. :-)

You still don't "sound" like yourself. Are you taking those antidepressants again?

LOL, I swear!! I'm me, I'm happy and I'm not on any drugs. Maybe being sucked into the vortex of PTAmomdom is making me boring?? Maybe we need to liven this place up with some color and some drunken posting?? I don't know what the deal is.

Now you have me all paranoid that I'm excessively boring or being weird, that's not going to help with writer's block...

I'll go search for "bald beaver" on your site. That should liven things up ;).

I'll be happy to donate some Photoshop time if you can send me an image and specs.
