Everything's just Fine and Dandy
Hello my lovelies and a very happy weekend to you all! So, you've probably already noticed some not-so-subtle changes about the blog, that the name's been altered, a domain bought and that the blog is awash with a brand, spanking new design! For some time now I've been pondering over my personal brand and how it identifies - as a designer, I knew I wouldn't stick with 'Dainty Ghosts' forever but wanted something that suited my designs (and personality) a bit more. My blog is my haven, my happy place, where I can channel my thoughts and creativity and emanate positive vibes - a place where all's Fine and Dandy if you will.
Additionally, as fate would have it, I actually flippantly entered a blog giveaway not so long ago to win a complete blog redesign by the wonderfully talented Cat Byrne of Je Suis Cat. And lo and behold, I won! The timing couldn't have been more perfect as I'd already bought my domain 'fineanddandyblog.co.uk.' Cat was a colossal help during my blog makeover and I couldn't be happier with my new identity! Don't get me wrong, Dainty Ghosts was were it all started and will forever hold a place in my heart as my baby and brainchild - it shaped my individuality and was ultimately, where this crazy adventure all began.
I'd just also like to mention that that floating pastel hot air balloon resonating at the beginning of this blogpost is actually my new blog button! I wanted to design something whimsical that even by just looking at it, would make you smile keeping in the spirit of Fine and Dandy. So please, don't hesitate to suggest a button swap as I'd be delighted to have you featured here at Fine and Dandy!
