New Blog Design!

So yeah, this is what I've been up to this Christmas!:) I need you to tell me what you think. Yay or nay on the new layout? Does it look alright? Is loading too slowly? Any bugs? Does it look weird? Too pink? Makes you nauseated? I need your opinions! 

Here's a snapshot of the old one:

No worries! It's gorgeous! I love the font of Bookish in the header! It loaded fine on my computer, you did a great job!

Sophia said...

On my laptop, the banner is too big. :( But it's probably just me. I like the new layout! Very cute!

Giselle said...

Very cute! It did take a while to load but that may just be because it was the first time it had to load all the images etc. But I really like it!

oh Evie it's wonderful!

i actually think it may load up a little faster than the previous layout, on my computer.

i LOVE it! so much!

after reading what Giselle said, i clicked on it again just to check speed, and it uploaded even faster the second time. like, much faster than the previous layout. at least it does on my computer.

marvelous job. :)

Evie said...

Awww.. thanks darlings!
It loads pretty slow on my computer, not sure if it's just my internet at the moment...? It is also messed up for like 10 seconds and then everything clicks into place. I also think I made the banner too big xD but it didn't look as big when I was designing it xD

Any of you experience similar issues? I really want it to work perfectly! :)

Thanks for all the love and support! <3

I think it looks great and perfect on my computer.

Patricia said...

The new one looks 'cleaner' and I like that. The loading time of the pic is a little slow, but that might just be my PC. : ) So in short: I LIKE!

Alaiel Kreuz said...

I love it! It took a little longer to upload the first time but the second time worked perfectly :]
I tested it in my laptop and the iPad and I have oohing bad to say. It's gorgeous!!!

Hugs^^

mimz said...

I really like it, even though pink is not exactly my colour. :D The header looks lovely!

Kathy said...

I love it. The header is really cute.

Library Lady said...

Love the new layout! There were no problems for me in the loading. It loaded quickly. The colors were great. :)

Ashley Prince said...

I love it! No problems with loading and this is just truly cheerful. I love it.

Britta said...

I really like the new design, but it does load very slowly for me. Just the header really.

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

I definitely prefer this header, Evie! It has more character and charm. Great improvement, and I'm glad you've worked with Artisteer, - I love this program! :)

Beth said...

Evie! It's gorgeous! AND PINK! And has love hearts!!!! Eeeee!!! I love it! :)

Alexis @ Reflections of a Bookaholic said...

Looks wonderful. I can't tell you about the the loading speed because the internet at my in-laws isn't a good gauge.

barmybex said...

I love it - really cool. Love the little figure in the chair she's sweet.
So Cool. :D
Wish I could do that sort of thing.

Mary @ BookSwarm said...

Very pretty! I like the pink--sweet but not treacle-y sweet. :)

Rebecca said...

It's nice! I really love the layout. It's definitely quite pink, but I survive! Haha, we all have our different fav colors! I do like that it's different shades though and a patterned background! The complaint would be that the header is quite big and takes a long time to load, but maybe that's just in the beginning. Definitely a nice job! :)

druidgirl said...

I like the header and the layout, it loaded quite fast but I'm sorry to much pink for me.

WildIrishRose33 said...

I love it!!

Amy said...

I love it! I think it is really cute. It seemed to load fine for me.I love the stripes they are really pretty. I wish I was good a computer stuff. I want to change my blog and give it a banner, but I have not clue how.

Andrea @ Cozy Up said...

Evie, I love the new design. The pink is adorable!! And I love the header it`s so cute! No issues with the loading for me.

Michelle @ Book Briefs said...

I love, love love the new design!! Did you make it all yourself? You are so talented. I love the little hanging letters that spelled out bookish. The header loaded a little slow for me but it might have just been my computer.

Great job!! :)

VanillaOrchids said...

The new design is awesome! I liked your old design too but the one thing that I thought didn't go well in your previous banner was the girl in the chair portion because your colors were basically all pastels but then that particular part was in bold reds, yellows, browns, etc.

So anyway, the new design is very pretty!! :)

Love the new look! Very pretty :D

Tamara Rose Blodgett said...

Love the moving widget at the top! Oh... huh, that sounds self-serving! Actually, I still do. Lol ;) The blog looks more streamlined and loads way faster. A plus, excellent job and I'm diggin' on the pink. =D

Heidi said...

Your new design looks great Evie!

I'm loving the pink!! Very fresh and upbeat. Also love the slide show at the top. How did you do that? I gave mine a new look for the new year as well but I'm not as good at it as you are. Great job.

Bonnie said...

It is beautiful Evie!!! I love it hun! <3 I found it actually loaded faster than the old one. Great job sweetie!!!

Melissa said...

It's beautiful! I agree with the other comments about it being a bit slow to load, but I'll also add that I have a slow Internet connection, so my opinion on this subject is not entirely valid. Once it loads, it looks awesome and I LOVE your new header!!!!

roro said...

it's pretty
perfectly evie
lol
happy new year

the Vintage Bookworm said...

I love it. =D So jealous you have Artisteer. I've been wanting to make a layout with Artisteer for soooo longggg!

Happy new year! I think it loads faster than the old one! =D I don't see anything wrong with it so far.

Sarah said...

It's very cute. I love the multitude of textures and patterns. They keep it from looking too pink. It loaded quick for me.
