Week in Review: 7/9

march 21
Do you know what this weekend is? Other than my sister Laura and dear friend Jenny's birthdays? It's Jane Austen Festival time at Locust Grove (pictured)!

So let's start with righteous literary anger at people who think Jane is only about bonnets and finger sandwiches and people who use Twilight to sell Wuthering Heights.

My sewing nook is mostly organized! Let's celebrate with a list of sewing necessities.

Instead of sending out "We Moved" cards, I thought I would just send out housewarming cookout invites to kill two birds with one stone. But if I change my mind (always a possibility) and go with a "We Moved" card, it will be this one. (Probably. I could change my mind.)

This week I will resume learning to ride my bike (inspired by this) so I can start bike commuting and I will start working out again...for the 392th time (inspired by part 1 and part 2).

And if you're reading this in a reader I've been fanagling with the actual blog appearance and finally figured out how to add my own fancy tabs (and not just the standard Blogger ones) so let me know if you like or it's too...something not great. Is the peach link type too difficult to read? Does it look too serious? Am I over analyzing this? (Yes.)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Katie, I like the new layout! How were you able to make some of your tabs go to non-blogspot pages? I don't think the peach type is too hard to read. :)

Happy weekend!

For the page links at the tops, I designed them in InDesign (but you could use Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or some of the free design software on the web) to make the buttons and uploaded them as images to Flickr. I used to figure out how to make a table with the right number of columns and 1 row. Then I placed the button image codes into the table code.
Did that make senese?! You can e-mail me if you have more questions.
