We’ve Got A New Look

I am so excited! I have been working like a busy bee creating headers and buttons for clients and my site always sits there waiting patiently until I have some extra time, which is why I am so excited to share that we have a bold new look over here at Sunflower Schoolhouse. If you are reading by email or on another reader, please stop by for a little visit.

I have created a quirky and fun new header with a whimsical bee and a giant sunflower. I am not saying more about that. You will just have to come and have a look.

Through the graphics on the header you can get to some of your old favorites: Homeschool4Free, KidLinks, Freebies (AKA The Beehive), Workbox Blogroll, and my A Trip Across Canada. The first three of those will be changing (yet again) to make them easier to upkeep for me and more searchable and functional for you. I am sorry that I don’t have any more information on that yet because I am still thinking through it all. I do know that the Workbox Blogroll is in desperate need of updating and I will be getting to that soon too. A Trip Across Canada will be getting an overhaul and I have a big surprise there too that I can’t wait to share. All in due time.

I created a new post signature to go with this new look and I even managed to make a post divider. I have never had post dividers before.

My husband has been instrumental in the installation of the new design. He is in charge of all the tech details because he comes by it so naturally.

We are trying out some new fonts for the headers and text. I would love to know what you think of them (are they readable?). Now keep in mind that I have really bad eyes, so I was trying to choose fonts that I could actually see (I feel so old).

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you that I have a new button. Check out the right hand side bar where you can grab your own button. While you are at it, you might like to subscribe by email or RSS or maybe follow on twitter or facebook.

So, what do you think of the new look?

  1. Love the new look and the bright graphics! And your signature goes with it perfectly! I don’t mind the font style/shape at all and I like the big size (very readable), but other than the headers, it shows up sort of faint (more gray than black) and is a little hard to read on my computer screen. (The text at the bottom of this comment box is so faint on my screen I can hardly read it.) Some of the blue in the left column is the same. I don’t know if that’s my computer or not. Overall, great design!

    1. I am sorry the header is loading slow for you. My husband tried to fix that, but I am not sure that there is anything we can do about that.

    1. Hi Amber,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I had so much fun. I wanted everyone to have FUN when they come to my blog. The fonts have probably changed a few times since you first read this, I hope they are still okay.


    1. Hi Sheri,

      Thanks for visiting. I have been working on the design for a long time now, it was just putting it all together.


    1. Hi Sara,

      You are always such an encouragement to me. It is my pleasure to have you as my friend. Thank you for the kind words.


  2. Love the new layout! I decided to follow via google connection (I moved our blog back to blogger) so much easier to have it all in one place… I forget to stop by so many blog and with Google reader I can get all the latest from my blogging friends.

    1. Hi Cariann,

      Thank you for taking a moment to visit. I love my Google Reader although I don’t use it nearly as often as I should.


  3. I’m a homeschooler too! I’ve been following you on Twitter and I saw your tweet about $10 buttons, so I decided to pop over and take a look. I will be following your blog now too! :)

    Overall, I really LOVE your design! So fresh and whimsical. But, the font is kind of hard for me to read. Just sayin’. I’m 42 and wear glasses. I don’t like to “work” to read something, so that is an issue. It is fine for the categories and such, but it is a bit taxing to read all of the post text. The size is really great, though. It’s just the font itself that’s a little hard for me to read.

    I noticed someone else mentioned that the gray text is hard to read. That actually doesn’t bother me. LOL! But, I can see how a darker font would help.


    1. Hi Cara,

      It was nice to meet you this week. Thank you for your kind comments about my blog. We played around with the fonts and colors a bit more and I hope the one we have now works well for everyone. We’ll see.
