Inspiration and New Things

I've had a busy week over here, even if I don't have much to show for it as far as posts go. If you follow Oh Whimsical Me on Facebook, I'm sure you got the heads up that I have been dutifully working on some different designs, contemplating the direction I wanted to take a few things, as well as working through some real life stuffs. It has been a week full of inspiration digging and decluttering, with a bit of relaxation and fun squeezed in.

You may notice that things look a little different around here and I couldn't be more excited about it. I've worked hard on this new design. Although things aren't entirely in order yet, Blogger has been giving me quite a fit, I'm still happy to share it with you. You'll just have to excuse a bit of mitch-match for a few more days. Anyway, I thought'd it be fun to share with you a few images that inspired the new direction and design.

I'm always drawn to cool, muted colors. I think it is apparent in my wardrobe as well as my home decor. I want that to transfer over into this space as well, for I always want OWM to be a reflection of me and to feel nice and personal. You'll see that I actually didn't stray too far from the color palette I had before. I just updated it a bit. I wanted OWM to feel a bit more clean and crisp and fresh. I hope I accomplished that.

To help with the cleaner, crisper vision, I have also improved the way you can navigate this blog. If you're a regular visitor, you may have already noticed this update already, as I was testing it out last week. If you select a category from the sidebar, doing so will now take you to a page with links to all posts under that category. I love this improvement. You can now see all categorized posts easily, instead of searching through a tagged list of posts. Be sure to check it out (but keep in mind it is still in need of a few minor updates coming sometime this week)!

Also, be sure to like Oh Whimsical Me on Facebook so you never miss a post and for little extra updates and stories. I've got lots of things coming your way this week!

What's new with you? Did you miss me?


  1. I love this new design! Good job. This color palette is so pretty. You are inspiring me to make a little change on my blog haha!


  2. I love your new design. All the colors go so well together! You truly have an eye for this.

  3. EMORIE! I missed you and I'm glad you're back. I love your new design (and I'm glad to see you'll be offering design services soon because you got mad skillz.) Anyways, your new header reminds me of Rifle Paper Co.'s designs. They have beautiful cards, stationary, iphone cases, etc. that I'm sure you'll swoon over. Happy you're back, friend!

  4. Wow, thank you. That is quite a compliment; I love Rifle Paper Co.! It's nice to be back in the swing of things. I feel so out of the loop, though, as I haven't kept up on any of my favorite blogs. I'll be indulging myself in reading them today :)
