The bold and the beautiful

I am so excited to be part of a very unique blog hop. Gail @My Repurposed Life and MeganDVD @ Beauty in the Attempt are hosting “The Bold and the Beautiful-your blog reviewed”.

Please take a look around my blog, check out the layout, pages, buttons, sidebar and gadgets. I would love for you to gently critique my blog. I’m hoping you will leave me some positive feedback about my blog. It would be great if you could give me constructive criticism but be sure to tell me what you like about my blog too! Do you like my pictures? Does my blog load quickly for you? How about the font? All tips and tidbits welcome!


  • I have an "about me" page link in my top sidebar (to speed up loading), but I have added a smaller "about me" nevertheless after your review!
  • I replaced my flash header (loved it) by a non-flash version after your review.
  • the boy in the image is my avatar, logo of my art-stores and web design. He comes from a 3D artwork I did a couple of years ago, named "The little drummer boy". You can view the original artwork here. I made the blog design myself after this artwork. 

As you can see, I have taken notice to your comments! Thank you so much!

Thanks so much for linking up to our blog hop! I really like your banner/header, but the spots flying around are not very easy on the eyes.
I must say that I am sorry for your missing kitty. How sad to not know about him. I hope he finds his way home to you!
I like the way you can tweet your post right from the top of your page! That's great.
I have to gently say that your sidebar goes on forever. I suppose that is not a bad thing, but as a visitor, I would have no idea where to even begin to click.

you are a very talented artist!
Your links open in a new window, very important to keep your readers on your page.
I also love your twitter, facebook and envelope. They compliment your page really well.
I would love to see a picture and about me on the top of your sidebar. It helps a visitor identify with the blog author.
I'm glad you linked! I'm getting to see a lot of blogs I've never visited before.
ps great job on the kitchen reno! :)

Hi Elsina,

I have enjoyed checking out your blog. I like the theme/colors and you have it set up in a way that is easy to navigate and read.
Good job! :)

I think your blog is lovely, but it does take a long time for all the bits and moving things to load.

Hi Elsina,
I really like your blog except for the lights/spots in your header. I am not a fan on things moving and blinking on a web page. The rest is lovely though, what a talented artist you are!

I like that your blog loads quick, and the color theme and layout are unique ane memorable. Who is the boy in the image? Great blog layout overall!

-Much love. Kim and Mr. Gnome

Hi Elsina, stopping over from the blog hop. I think you have already made some changes, which I am thankful for. The first thing I did was read your profile, which intrigued me enough to click to read more.

My only suggestion would be to move up your most popular posts... I think I may have missed them if I hadn't been "on assignment".

So sorry to read about the loss of your son.
