Water Color Header


Did you notice my new header?  I have wanted to come up with an original image for my blog for a while now and thought why not pull out my watercolors and give it a go?

So I began doodling and painting and then doodling some more and this is what I came up with...

What do you think?  This is just one of the little things I've been tinkering with around here.  I have been toying with the idea of switching to wordpress but I am just not sure this old brain is ready for that.  I am having a case of the "if ain't broken then don't fix its".  We'll see...

No telling what I'll come up with next now that I am creatively inspired.

Enjoy your weekend!

xo, Patty

I've joined Elaine over at Sunny Simple Mondays...


  1. I love your new header, I think it's awesome that you have that talent!

  2. Your header is so adorable, really, very cute! Now that I see how fresh and happy your header looks, it reminds me that I need to change mine out too....see how your inspiration spreads!

    Awhile back when I was having so much trouble with Blogger, I made a wordpress blog, never doing anything with it but just wanted to have it there 'Just in case'.

    Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for being so inspiring. xo

  3. I think it's a fun header, Patty! A friend and I are taking 4 watercolour classes this month, but I have yet to show any talent. I think I'll fiddle with some at home, though, and experiment a little.

    Enjoy your weekend and drop by sometime, if you like.


  4. Patty I like it very nice and Happy like , creative and says it all.

    Possibilities are never endless with a person who likes to be creative.

    Thumbs up.

  5. Your new header is lovely, well done! Is there no end to your talents? :-)
    Have a great weekend,

  6. Now you can even make little note cards to match. I think it's cute...and it's a little lemon colored walk(lane). xoxo,Susie

  7. Fabulous drawing with the lemon tree and the heart. Please stay with blogger, it is easy to follow you now.

  8. Patty - LOVE your new header! How creative, bright and cheery!!


  9. I have been a quieter reader of your blog since I have been on a blogging break, but really do enjoy your posts.

    Now I need to tell you something that you might think is a little strange. You creating your blog header is an answer to prayer. You see, I am an artist, (when I 'm not busy homeschooling my children) and I create both on paper and in my graphics art program. I have been having the hardest time creating a blog header for my own blog, (and I have already created dozens of designs that just don't look right.)

    For the last several weeks, I have been praying in frustration over not being able to create the design I want for my blog, (as trite as that seems) but in response I keep getting,

    "Draw and paint something on paper and skip the graphics."

    (Ironically I create free blog headers that look just fine for others!)

    And yet, in my own artistic insecurities and perfectionism, I keep ignoring the whole "draw and paint something on paper thing" and strive in vain on my graphics program. After another futile attempt today, I got the same thing. "Draw something!"

    And then, your blog header and post popped up in my reader after taking a break!

    So thank you for being brave enough to draw your own! It's very bright and cheery, and it is in step with the style of your Etsy creations!

    On a side note, I know many are going with Wordpress, but I also know that Wordpress sites are constantly being hacked, and without proper support, can be a real source of frustration and a time sucker.

    I use to be on Wordpress, but came back to Blogger!

    Have a blessed week!

    1. Thank you Leah Rose. Isn't wonderful how God creatively answers our prayers through others. The painting and doodling is mine and then I just added the graphic text in photo editing. It was a lot of fun...Good luck creating one unique to you!

  10. LOVE it! Bright, beautiful and bold. You are so talented!

  11. That is a really cute drawing Patty. You are very creative!

  12. What a great header! Maybe you should be selling your design services?

  13. I think it's adorable and whimsical! Nice job. Susan

  14. Hi Patty! Love your header! SO nice to see something completely fresh and original. Such a nice comment you left for me! Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

  16. This is adorable! It looks like the cover of a book...now you have to write a story about traveling down Lemon Lane ...:)

  17. It's so cheerful and sunny - makes me smile. Great idea!

  18. Wow! I love your new header so much! Now I am thinking I should paint one for my blog rather than use the one I made in Photoshop. I LOVE your blog!
