New Look for A New Year!

Hello 2012,

I've decided to update the look of the blog for the new 2012 year. After trying to figure out a design for my Storenvy Shop, I realized that I was trying too hard, I've kept trying to design something that was ultra girlie, and on the busy side. I decided to go back to my roots on the design, and to go with something I love best, a good, old black and white design scheme. I changed the 'Wedding Day Tree' logo to look more like wedding Calligraphy, and liked it so much, I updated the blog as well.
What do you think? Do you like the new updated look?

Shop Update:

I couldn't help it, I had to change the new look and feel of the shop again. Although, I really liked the mellow yellow look of the original design, I just couldn't have the shop and blog not have the same overall design. Although, I don't want the shop to look exactly the same, I wanted them to share a similar color palette, to let viewers know that they are the same brand.

So what do you think? I want to do other updates to the shop. But considering that I don't know anything about CSS and java script, it's going to have to take a long time! I mean, at least I know a little HTML. But using all three combined is tricky business. Have a happy weekend everyone!
