introducing my new theme!

It took ages to find one I liked that I felt reflected the look and feel I want for the site. Initially I was looking for ‘shabby chic’ styles, and was unable to find any designed for wordpress (only for blogger).  Then by accident I stumbled upon different search criteria – apparetly wordpress designers call this look ‘grunge’ rather than shabby chic.

And of course there is a huge variety within the grunge category – mostly they are black backgrounds with red and / or white writing.  Whereas I wanted swirls, flourishes, florals, and lovely colours (this blog is all about colour, after all!).  I did find some that I liked some elements of, but this is the first one I have liked pretty much everything.

I would like to move the RSS feed thing to the bottom of the sidebar, but I haven’t been able to work out how so far – I did manage to remove some other crappy links so I guess it is just a matter of playing with it a bit.  I was also unable to put  my synaesthesia definition under the name of the blog, but after trying for a while I just created a new page for it with a more information.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

I make arty mixed-media things, & write fantastical things (with kissing), & do musical & dancing things, & play gaming things, & do weightlifting things, & organise fabulous event things. But mostly I wrangle cats. Renaissance woman.

  1. I do have widgets enabled, but the rss thing isn’t part of them. it is in code right at the start of the page, but when I have tried to move it below the widgets section it just disappears altogether.

  2. me either, that is why I would never have thought to look under that term.

    I think they have grunge and shabby chic a little bit mixed up.
