I was finding it all a bit too dark. Too depressing.
So I changed the background on my blog to something a little more uplifting... lighter in flavour.
After hunting through all the backgrounds available, and peering at the tiny bits to see what caught my fancy, I decided on the handmade paper look.
I like flowers, but gardening is beyond me. I tend to kill most everything in a planter. I like nature scenes, but too many of them had the light bits in the centre (covered by all this typed stuff) and the darker bits around the edges, so that left me with the same feeling as the previous background.
The sports stuff... well. No. Just... no. Same with the techno stuff, the abstract designs, etc. I liked some of the watery ones, but their blue just didn't coordinate with my blog banner blue, so they were eliminated for clashing.
Besides, I am somewhat of a crafty person and I could so make paper like that. Rose petals and bits of rosemary. It would smell nice, in a woodsy rose garden kind of way. I've actually made paper in the past, using a blender, onion skins and bits of flower petals (can't remember what they were, but tiny and blue seems to ring a bell - it was more than half a lifetime ago, after all). A bit messy in the making, but the end result was lovely.
Perhaps I should do that again. Once I move, I will have lots of time on my hands...
Well, I shouldn't say that yet. I see the surgeon on Monday to find out what the grand plan is for my shoulder.
