A Fresh Beginning

Hello, Dear Readers!

Can you believe it’s 2019?? Where did 2018 go? It feels like 2018 just zipped by, and I don’t know why! I hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright!

Oh dear. I’m speaking in rhyme. 😱

*Cough*

Hehe.

Well, I have been wanting to change my blog theme for quite awhile now, so why not a better time then the fresh start of a new year?

Well, I looked and looked for a long time to find the perfect theme for the style and personality of my blog here, and I think I’ve found it. I like a clean looking blog. (no colored writing or bright colors. Although, I had two bright colors in my previous theme🤔 Probably why I wanted to change it!)

My Previous Theme (Dara)

As you can see from this picture, everything is kind of busy and scattered.

I looked and tested multiple themes.

Button 2

I liked “Button 2,” but I felt like it was too similar to “Dara.”

Sketch

I liked “Sketch,” too, but again, it just wasn’t quite right for me.

 

“Twenty Seventeen”

This one was just way too big. (The front page) You couldn’t see any of the content!

Hemingway Rewritten

This one was cute, but still, just a teeny bit too big. And the widgets were very messy looking. (To me)

Scratchpad

And this last one I saw I just loved! I love how it looks like a scrapbook!

The widgets are so cute, and the different shapes are a mix of neat and artistic.

And look! Tiny pencils in between posts! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

What do you think of my new theme for 2019? Do you like it? Do you like any of the others? What kind of posts would you like to see from me?

Happy new year! New posts coming soooooooon!
