When frustration sets in

Over the past weekend I tried to redo my blog background and header. I'm just not liking the way it is. Well no matter what I did it just wasn't working so I gave up and played
The original, straight off the camera picture is the top left and from there it's a variety of things I tried.
Eventually I got bored with it. I seem to be getting bored with things a lot lately

I love your design. I am the same way with mine. I'm constantly changing its look. Well, I used to anyway -- lately I haven't even been posting much. I know what you mean about getting bored with things. I think I'm developing adult ADD.

However, I could never get bored with Duke. :)

Duni said...

I bore easily too - that's why I have tons of projects going on at the same time :)

Ann! I just adore your designs...all of them! I've always got a zillion different projects going on. I was switching my blog design up all the time using the premade templates found on the net, but I finally went and paid for the latest one. It is not exactly what I wanted...the quotes I got on those were $300 and up!! So, for now, I will stick with what I have. Of course, you know that anything with Duke's face on it is a WIN for me!!

Actually, I like the new look - it's cute! (what's wrong with it?) I like the last two shots that you piddled with. Something about those misted edges (although maybe it's just 'cause my brain is foggy and I can relate... *grin*)

I would suggest Metamucil, but you might consider that way out-of-line. So, I won't.

I think your blog header and background is very beautiful.

LDH said...

These photos are beautiful! If this is what you create when bored, I think you should remain bored :) I love the composition and the colors as well as the textures. Lovely!

Don't unplug your hub said...

It looks very good as it is. Don't let on to Duke that you don't like it. :-)

I change mine a lot too. I don't like the pre-made templates at all. They generally have a childish look to them and are too ornate, so I stick to the Simple Template that blogger has on their designer and make tweaks to it... AND I change my header daily... well, almost daily. LOL

Sandra said...

Love, Yesterdays said...

I love the background and header just the way it is :)

As for the boredom...it might be the approaching spring season...I usually get like that as we inch out of the dark season :)

Sandee said...

I hate it when you can't get your blog to look the way you want it to. At least you found something else to entertain yourself with besides Duke. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Anne said...

I like the design (especially the large photo of Duke). It's amazing how many things you can do with images on the computer.

BeadedTail said...

I like your header and new blog look. I don't ever get bored so maybe that's why I don't know how to work Photoshop! :)

Marg said...

I bet I have 6 projects in my closet that I got bored with. So we understand. By the way we really like the header.
Also I think we have been taken off the reader because we are not a blogger blog. Don't know what to do about that. Take care.

Hope you are feeling better, Ann... I love your new blog look... The header is great and I love the big border along the sides... NEAT!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Lin said...

I actually took your lead and set up a fake blog to practice my layout skills. I have to say, that I am really learning as I go along. LOVE the tutorials on YouTube!

You are an inspiration to me, Ann--even if you aren't to yourself these days. Hahaha!

Donna said...

I always struggle with making the backgrounds too! Hope the cold is getting better.

Ratty said...

I get bored with things easily myself, but it's fun playing with them while I do.

Debra Dickinson said...

Playing is a good past time for boredom. Could it be the cold & flu medicine from yesterday? LOL. I hope you're feeling better. HugZ!

Reena Walkling said...

Here ya about getting bored and wanting to change things up! The internet provides us way too many distractions.

Country Mouse Studio said...

Donna said...

I think your blog header and background look very spring like...I really like it. However, I'm sure if it changes it will still be wonderful!

Hope you're feeling better.
