My New Look

Posted on January 24, 2009

I’ve been working on a new WordPress template for awhile now and finally have it launched here at My Recycled Bags. I hope you’ll take a moment to look around and see what you think of my new template. I am still working on getting a custom logo but for now am just using this one that was made with the help of some friends over at BlogCatalog. There are a few things that I’m still tweaking but for now I wanted to get the new template up so everyone could see it. A special thanks to my son William who has spent many hours helping me get this live.

This is also a special day, as today is my 2 year blog anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been two years already since that first post back on January 24, 2007. But they do say time flies when you are having fun and I’m definitely having fun sharing my recycled crafting ideas at this blog.

So for now — Welcome to the new My Recycled Bags site. I hope you enjoy the new look!

    Congratulations on both events. I do appreciate the work that went into finding and installing the right template. The green highlights are perfect.

    While you’re still in the design mindset (and not completely drained, I hope), be sure to create a favicon.

    nice theme, but do you think that your archive side bar is too long? do you think to dedicate one page just for archive?

    Thank you all for the comments. Yes I want to change my archive side bar as it is so long. I’m looking for a plug-in now to compress it as it doesn’t appear that the template has this option.

    Happy Blogiversary from me, too!

    I love your site, collecting up red shopping bags this evening from my place and mum’s to see what kind of creation can come from it .. any experience with red bags, does the red rub off?

    Thanks, Julie Andrea

    I’m working up a red fused Valentine’s heart bag this weekend. Hold onto those bags as this is a fun project which I will be posting in a few days.

    I have installed the WP Collapsing Archives plug-in for my archive side bar. My archive list looks much better now. Thanks again everyone for the input.
