I can’t leave well enough alone…

by Matt on April 26, 2007

Well

The noodle is strrin’, the creative juices were flowin’, and I was itching to do something to the blog. Anything. Something. I just can’t leave well enough alone and felt the need to futz. Maybe I’ll get bored with it and change it. Maybe it will languish for months, quietly begging for an update. Who can say?

I think that as a creative person I’m just not happy unless my fingers and mind are engaged, and having wrapped up a few freelance jobs just this week left me a bit antsy. I should probably get in the kitchen and occupy myself by testing a few new recipes from the books that have piled up. Or I could watch a movie and drink some wine.

Let’s hear it for bouts of fidgetiness!

I love that you update your header now and then. it’s like a seasonal menu update at a restaurant :D

Hi Matt
I’m deeply in love with the new colours. This blue is gorgeous.

Very Nice, now you make me feel like a lazy ass for not redesigning mine like I have talked about for months :)

I just came across your blog. I love it! Being creative is often a blessing and a curse. I didn’t see the layout before but I really love the look that you have going now. Great colors and clean design.

I love it! The blue is a nice hue and the header is simple but elegant. Mmmmm…figs…!

I love the contrast between sweet, good-for-you figs and naughty, really bad (but-oh-so-tasty) donuts!

I’d love to be able to change my blog around…
