a new better header

so did you notice anything new around here?  why yes, my observant friend, i do have a new header!  i was using freebies from template sites to start but once i switched my template to stretch minima {so i could have giant pictures} there were no free headers that would expand to fill the space.  i was helpless with no hope of finding my way to a large custom header until...sarah entered my life. 

sarah has a blog called {clover lane} that is inventive, creative, yummy & so much fun to read.  she has a post on her blog about how to create your own header using picasa.  what a dream come true!  a free, yes FREE way to create a custom header that perfectly fits you, your style & your blog.  if you are in need of an awesome tool such as this check out here tutorial HERE.  you will not be disappointed.

here is sarah's december version.  i know, i know, it's about a billion times better than mine but she's like a pro @ this, has mad photography skills & precious babies - i can't compete with that.  anywho...check out her & her banner makin' tutorial.  i'm so glad i did! 

be prepared for the many headers to come from {with grace & lace}...when i made this current one i was so excited to get started on it but felt terrible with a headache from you know where so i didn't give it the time & attention it deserved.  i can't wait to go a second round with it in a few weeks & really get creative.

let sarah & i know if you use this little trick, i'd love to see what you come up with! 

additionally, HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE dear friends!  i hope you get to spend the day with someone or someone(s) you love.  i'm going to be cleaning the whole house.  benny {the master painter} painted half our house in the last two days so everything we own is in the center of all our rooms.  AND all the christmas decorations have come down too {well down to the center of each room with all our other junk at least}.  it looks kind of sad & empty without all of our festivensess.  next up...valentine's day!
