New Blog Banner…and Some Pics.

Since I started my blog, I wanted to have a nice, unique blog banner but being a bit tech challenged, I just used the blogger background pic. And as you all can understand, it does take a bit of time finding ones way around the settings etc.

Recently, I was talking to one of hubby’s friends who is into wedding cards and gift packaging etc (he does absolutely brilliant invites. We got our wedding invites made from him too…you can check out his website, www.weddingcardmanufacturer.com) for making personalised gift tags for my boys when I got the idea of using my own pictures for the blog banner. I spoke to him about what the blog was about and what sort of thing I had in mind and emailed my pics to him….and here’s the banner. What do you think of it? Are you liking the new look?

The pictures are part of my portfolio that I got done a couple of years ago. Here are a few more of them….

PS: the white and red sari is the traditional Gujarati Panetar given from the mom’s side that the bride wears during the wedding.
