Tweaking my Something About Love blog header, August 13, 2016 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #952)

You know how when you have a favorite  piece of jewelry?  And it becomes your go to accessory item?  But then after a while, you feel like a change–as I did with my Something About Love (SAL) blog header today.

Though I’ve only tweaked it this weekend—adding in Daniel, and changing out the Proctor image, etc.—my upgraded photo editor software allowed me to enhance the color on the background image (bluer sky, greener foliage) and I balanced the mantel images (including sizing them up a bit), which was sorely needed (below:  new header on top, old header at bottom).  Though I might come up with more of a dramatic blog header change in a few weeks.  We’ll see.

You see,  somehow, when I changed to my new desktop computer in January, I could only find my photo editor in a much older version 3 to load onto it.  So I have been limping along—graphically speaking.   And now, I that have recently bought the photo editor in version 14—quite a leap!–I’m playing around with it.  Maybe I should phrase that software version in Roman numerals:  XIV, like the Superbowl.  Ha!

Anyway, today, I’m also going to play around with jewelry making—in addition to some Richard Armitage inspired story writing, in the historical fiction genre.  I can’t find the kind of jewelry I want—so much in the stores or online is fringed, and with multiple strands, or miss matched charms.  And I’m afraid that the fringes and charms will dangle in my soup, while the multi-strand necklace styles would completely hide my already short neck—making my head look like its floating.  Ha!  So, I’m going to putter around and make some necklaces.  If I come up with anything interesting, I’ll share it in a future post.

In the meantime, I hope that you have a gReAt weekend!  Cheers!   Grati  ;->

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
