Finally, a design with color! If you’re reading this in your favorite RSS reader, I highly suggest you actually click through to see the awesomeness.

Here’s a list of the fancy stuff I did:

  • Each category has it’s own color, which is carried through completely on single post pages.
  • I’ve used two images in the theme coding itself. The rest are fonts.
  • The index is all now excerpts.
  • Overall it’s wider going from 1100px to 1250px.
  • I made a few of the submit buttons a bit fancy, like on the comments form for example. You’ll see it when you submit a comment. So submit a comment!

How long will I keep this theme? No idea. My brain can’t handle designing for myself and more and more I lean towards really minimalistic clean design. Still. COLORS!

If you stopped by anytime before 4:45p CST the theme was a bit… different. I went a bit more cleaner and dare I say even more awesome? Hope those who commented like v2!

Cheery and clear. Very modern, but fun still. Modern can be so cold — this is not! (:

I actually changed the design a lot since you commented… my brain was in overdrive I suppose! I hope you still like version two!

I absolutely adore the colors! Fantastic Sarah. So glad to see you’re still blogging. I re-discovered your site after finding a very old guest post I did here in 2009. Cheers to you!

As I mentioned on Facebook, under my sites FB page apparently, the contrast difference is quite nice. You went from a flat black and white type layout to a white with vibrant colors – keeping it contrasted. I don’t know if that makes sense, in my head it does.

These types of colors remind me of late summer but not quite autumn. It puts a warm feeling and makes me want to run in the sprinklers like a little kid.

It totally makes sense! Thank you so much!

I love, love, love this design. It is so colorful! I am a sucker for bright colors. I love how clean the design is. Amazing!

THANK YOU! Oh I’m totally into brights lately, maybe because it’s winter lol!

posted on January 8th 2014 at 9:00PM CST

I’m commenting so I can see the neat stuff. Fun colors, too, especially this time of year.

I always know when you change your theme because he button changes on my site. I love that you do that. Most people (myself included) have stopped that.

posted on January 12th 2014 at 2:34AM CST

AHHH I wondered if people noticed the button change! So awesome!!

I absolutely love this! I always wanted a theme that had colours for different categories! This is a beautiful theme.

posted on January 12th 2014 at 2:35AM CST

Thank you! It’s a freaking ton of CSS but I feel it’s totally worth it for this theme. I think if someone had 20+ categories it would be hard to figure out color combinations though lol!

Finally had time to go through everything and look at all the newness and gorgeousness, and I absolutely love it. It’s soft on the eyes while still being bright, clear, crisp, tidy, minimalistic and most of all beautiful!

I love this. Love love love it. You’re so talented!
