Makeovers, revamps, and prettification

So, I've made some changes in the past couple of days. I absolutely fell in love with the red and turquoise damask tray that I made, so I asked hubby to do a blog redesign based on it. I heart it, do you heart it? For comparison, here is a screen shot of my old blog design.



He's been busy with freelance, but hopefully soon we'll be able to figure out why there are light blue gradients up by my banner. See them? Ugh, I don't know why they're there. Lamesauce.

My second new update? Finished my arm tattoo yesterday.








There were some smiles....
















Some easier parts where I caught up on Words with Friends on my phone.

















And a couple of parts of major suckage.













But I think it was worth it. I'm loving it. We did the flowers in pink, turquoise, and red, my favorite colors. You likey? Me likey.


Next appt is on Sunday (I'm a glutton for punishment this week apparently). Hubby will be getting the outline for his 3/4 sleeve, and hopefully there will be time to finish my peacock on my back. My appt is at 1, and his is at 4, but I'm letting him take my time slot. I'd rather have to reschedule my peacock coloring in, than have his outline be unfinished. He's excited. I'm excited for him.
