The Winds of Change


Change is in the air and it's been a long time coming. Over the past year I've been working on my website as time permitted and finally have things set. Perfect? No. Doable? Yes.

Heaven knows it doesn't take a year to build a site, at least not when it comes to creating them for my customers, but as with so many other things in life, we tend to push our own projects to the bottom of the list as it grows.  With my recent entry into the wonderful world of WordPress, and with Blogger sadly featuring more and more full page "pop-up" ads, the time has finally come to make some major changes.

Over the next several days or week (since nothing  goes quite as it should with websites) I will be going live with the Plumrose Lane website and migrating my blog over to WordPress. From a visual standpoint there will be little difference, for now.  All of the usual content will remain; themes, blogging goodies, tutorials, and past blog posts.  Fortunately WordPress offers some fantastic widgets to make the process simple.

It's also a nice opportunity for those of you who may have been thinking about making the same changes yourself ~ you can watch and see how the transition goes from an by-stander's point of view.

So bear with things as the fairies and I undergo some changes here on Plumrose Lane and look for more changes in the coming weeks as I begin evolving all of my themes to include new WordPress versions!

Best~

The Cloud

Posted on my favorite go-to art/design source this morning was this incredibly cool creation by designer Richard Clarkson...


Clarkson has created Cloud, "an interactive light shaped like a cumulus cloud that simulates a thunderstorm both in light and sound, based on external input from either a remote control or motion sensors."

Face Lifts~

While I may not be a fan of face lifts, I certainly enjoy giving them... at least to some of my older themes, in much need of an updated look.  Joining this group are "A Fondness" and "A Heart for You".



Both don brighter colors with more exquisite elements to help add even more whimsy. You can view them by clicking the titles or images above.

New Themes ~ Sea Gypsy & Scholastic Delight

Two new themes are making their debut today ~ the first is titled "Sea Gypsy" and features a lovely sea theme with magic abounding.  From shells and smashing waves to sandy shores and a haunting romance of lost lovers at sea, this theme is sure to enchant any summer blog!



Next up we've got a more down to earth theme, both in color and concept. This one's titled "Scholastic Delight" and features a soothing color scheme with a scholastic ensemble. It comes in three background colors, features two sets of sidebar tags, including one especially designed for school blogs, and the banner is customizable to include two of your own school photos, making it truly personal and one-of-a-kind banner.


Both are available for either WordPress or Blogger platforms. You can find more info by clicking the titles and/or images above.

Enjoy~

Cool Summer Garden

Funny I haven't created a Treasury in ages and wound up making 2 just in the past week . I imagine it's because I've been spending so much time revamping my shop listings that it's just come with the territory, literally.  Whatever the case I created this new one today titled Cool Summer Garden~ it was a fitting delight from the early summer heat of the day.
