Please read to the bottom of this post… I need your input!
I hope you are enjoying StoneGable’s new header? It’s part of a mini makeover to update and bring a fresh new look to my blog! I’ve been wanting to have more of a “brand” presence in the blogging community and one that you, my fabulous readers, can pick out and associate with all that StoneGable is and hopes to be! If this sounds lofty… well, it is! I am all about and committed to making StoneGable the very best blog/brand it can be! And this I do with YOU in mind!
I know some of you might have liked the images at the top of the page and the old StoneGable logo… and so did I. But, I think a fresher, less cluttered looks is soft and pleasing to the eyes. There are enough images “below the fold”.
Let me tell you about the elements of the header and what they stand for…
The gray pillow ticking is a nod to the big influence of farmhouse style you will find here! I love the way it gently unfolds across the top of the page!!!!
The name “StoneGable” is written in a modern sweeping script in a soft blue/gray color. I like the movement of the Aura Blue script and the updated way it portrays my brand. StoneGable is a forward thinking, big idea, lots of inspiration blog. And the lettering says that in a not so subtle way!
The grey/blue/white and limestone colors associated with my StoneGable represent the colors of the limestone gable on the front of our home. These are the true colors of StoneGable!
The nest symbolizes “home”. We who love all things home are big time nesters! And what would a nest be without a few eggs! They represent inspiration, creativity and love! All values to be hatched and nurtured to create a warm, welcoming and beautiful home!
There are still a few more changes to come… very small actually! But I’ll let you know what to look for!
Now, let’s talk about something very practical. Some of you might be experiencing a “wonky” or “weird” header. I got lots of email from concerned readers who were surprised by the look of my header. If you have a wonky header, don’t worry! After a frantic email to my blog designer, she informed me that some of you (including me) may need to do a HARD REFRESH.
SO SO easy to do. On a Mac, press your command key + shift key + “r” key (On Windows press control + f5)…. You can do that right now!
Voila! Now you should be able to see my pretty new header and it should look normal and not all wonky all over the top of the page!
Now, let’s talk!!! I’m counting on you to give me lots of ideas about what you would like to see on StoneGable this fall. Speak up… I’m listening. Let me know in the comment section!
And I’ll be posting this fall with you in mind!
YOU ARE THE BEST… THE VERY VERY BEST!!! LOVE AND HUGS TO ALL OF YOU!
