~ re-layout ~

04 November 2003

it was two weeks of no internet connection. so, instead of browsing online, i did some productive things with my spare time — such as finishing my knit hat, learned to crochet, had a joined skirt project with Naomi, and making a new layout for this site.

the birds are pretty much copied from a series of tea cups that i bought for ari. i was drinking from it when i thought, hmm… i want some birdies on my website. it was a huge thunderstorm outside… i guess, that’s where the colors come from.

last night, i checked this site with IE5 mac. it doesn’t look too bad, except for the stacking navigation menu. so, i thought, it’s all readable, people can move around the site. besides, all other browsers are okay. so, here it is. i hope i didn’t break anything… (update: i fixed the stacking tabs. woohoo!)

the more i use Firebird, the more i like it… i wish yahoo would release their Yahoo Companion for Firebird. if that happens, i’ll ditch my Internet Explorer all together.

now, i have to start working on a new bag.

Hello. :)

I love your layout. It’s very peaceful and tranquil.

I remember when I had three weeks of no internet connection. It was frustrating at times, but I got a lot of things done, especially since I didn’t have any excuse to procrastinate. :)

hi, thank you :)

i thought it was kinda fun without the internet for a while. the worst part is when i finally get to check email. i think it took me almost the whole day to get through them all.
