My Christmas Blog Header






Some of you have asked about my Christmas blog banner lately so I thought I would tell you a little bit about it. One of the most fun things with a blog, is that you can play around with its visual display as much as you want. When the First Of Advent arrived, I knew I wanted my blog to join in with the Christmas spirit here at home, so I started to search the net for backgrounds and illustrations to add to my header and side bars. I wanted a Scandinavian warm Christmas theme and red is of course the dominating color to use for that. After playing around with some free backgrounds, which were either too busy or too ugly (!!!), I decided to go with a simple polka dot background offered by Blogger itself and make a Christmas blog header to rule the rest. My first attempt on just swapping the pictures to seasonal ones did not work and I was delighted when I found Maje at GraphikClipArts on Etsy, as her Scandinavian styled clip arts and illustrations were just what I was looking for. I threw out the photos from my header and decorated it with some Scandinavian Christmas bulbs and snow flakes instead. And that Christmas tree is to die for!

I'm extremely pleased with the outcome and can highly recommend Etsy for any graphics you might need for your blog. And clip arts can be used for so many things part form your blog; invitation cards, adverts, gift tags, framed gifts... There are so many talented shop owners out there. Most of them take custom orders too. It is quick, easy and very simple to add to your blog. And it is not overly expensive either, saves you the headache and time to make your own.

Now Christmas is here and there and everywhere, isn't it? I'm all in! Drowning in it. High on Christmas spirit I'm packing wrapped up gifts to the kids' cousins and preparing for the big day. I so love this time of the year. Give me more, give me more, give me more!
