Manicure Mania!

randomness

Posted by manicuremania on November 23, 2009

So I’ m off all week and planning to make the move onto self-hosted wordpress finally. I bought a domain months ago in preparation, but I’ve been holding off because it will really be a ton of work. I consider myself fairly internet/computer savvy, but I just don’t really understand feedburner (one of the reasons I want to move to self-hosted) all that well at all.

Plus I’ll have to mess around with themes too…I have extreeeeeemely specific ideas for that, and I haven’t been able to find a theme that meets my standards as of yet. I want a 3-column theme that is widget ready and can make use of a customer header graphic. It needs to be simple, preferably will allow me to change the colors, and also not stupid. The sidebar widget lists have to be spaced correctly, too – a lot of themes that meet my requirements otherwise  have irritating spacing on the widget lists, and I just cannot deal with that. 🙂 I’m considering making a theme from scratch, but…I’m not sure I want to sink that amount of my vacation-time into it – last time I made a theme it took foreverrrrr. I really love my current theme a whole lot – the ONE thing it lacks is the ability to add a header image.

Speaking of that, I’m working on designing my new header image…this is what I have so far.

Still needs a bunch of work just for that image, then I’ll need to incorporate it into an actual banner. 🙂

Also, I’ve found out that the Wizard Of Ooh Ahz collection is available for order now, and I’ve been waiting and waiting for it! And even though the swatches I’ve seen recently of it aren’t really what I was expecting, I am still going to buy it. But, transdesign doesn’t seem to have either the set or the individual Dorothy Who? polish available for order, and that’s bugging me.

OK, back to my banner-making!
