All Change!


First thing Monday, and I'm having a giveaway. Why? Well, if you got here under your own steam, you'll be able to see for yourself. If you are reading in a Reader, you'll need to click through - to see From High in the Sky's new look!

It's very nearly two years since the last time we blew away the cobwebs round here. Time for a change! All the hard work has been done by the hugely talented Katie of Priceless Design Studio. She took the bits I wanted to keep and the bits I wanted to freshen and pulled them together into a look I love. I hope you'll like it too.


To tempt you to have a peep and say hello I'm celebrating with a From High themed giveaway. I've been gathering up a collection of the kind of things you might recognise if you are a regular here - library pockets (oh, yes), houses, name labels, a thought bubble stamp (for thinking out loud, obviously)..there'll be more. You have a week to leave a comment, follow, facebook like, whatever you fancy. I'd love to hear from you!

Do let me know what you think. Me? I'm completely sure the change will do me good..

Oooh, snazzy! I'm a fan of a white, or near to white background, everything else shines that way.

Great make-over. Looks fresh and exciting. They say change is as good as a rest so you are looking completely energised.

Suzy said...

It is looking rather lovely I have to say. I approve of your new look :)

Alana said...

Oh yes very 'you'. Sophisticated, chic, clean cut and unique.

Barbara Eads said...

Love your new look! I need to do something new too. Don't know when I'll get to that.

Mary B said...

Love the new look very stylish

debs14 said...

Two years? Surely not? How time flies!
Love the new look, but I also loved the old one. But it's always nice to have a change. I'm doing it slightly by doing a different header every month.

Chipper said...

oooooooooooh! It looks lovely. I especially like the old typewriter with links to our new digital technology :-) Priceless!! LOL

Jo.C said...

Think it looks fab - very clean and easy to follow. Enjoy your "new" blog :0)

Gail said...

It's so nice & clean looking!

Denise said...

I love it - very delicate and pleasing to the eye :-)

Margie said...

I love it! It suits you perfectly!

Elizabeth said...

I've just recently started following your blog so I haven't seen much of the old design, but I do like the new one. It has a nice clean look.

Cheri said...

how fun Sian!

Jennifer Shaw said...

Your blog makeover is amazing! I loved the old one and was sad to hear that it would soon be going but this one is just as awesome! A lovely giveaway but please don't put me in the draw due to high postage costs.

scrappyjacky said...

A great makeover,Sian....still so recognisably yours though.

Jimjams said...

It looks great - super buttons and bits and a fun photos of you. The white is very restful too.

One thing though - which is probably me not you - it's too wide for my laptop screen and I have to scroll left or right to see both sides. I have no idea if that's a setting I can adjust on my machine ... do you????

Susan said...

Very nice, Sian. There are only a few blogs that I still follow on a regular basis and yours is at the top of that list. :-)

Sian said...

I'm delighted that everyone seems to like it! I'm really happy with it.

Jemma - I only use a laptop and it's fine on mine. I'll certainly ask Katie what she thinks it might be

Nathalie said...

Nice blog redo Sian! I love the more subdued look and the doodles :)

Maria Ontiveros said...

Love the new look - so light and airy. Love your picture and the various icons (especially the type writer). Plus, your signature.

Jennie Hart said...

Well, it is lovely in here. Well done.

Ifversen said...

Really great! Nice colours and fresh look :-)

Beverly said...

Great redo, Sian, it looks very "you" and inviting. I am working on a redo myself...staying with the brights but a different look.

Ladkyis said...

Love it, love it, love it! So fresh, so different and yet it still feels right for you... does that make sense?

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

Love the new look! It is so clean & fresh!

Louise said...

wow wow and wow....your new look is wonderful. Love that you've kept your house too x

Lousette said...

Love the new look blog. The soft colours are lovely and fresh, and I really like the crisp white too. Just beautiful.

laurie said...

i love your new look! you are a scrapbooker, storyteller, and seamstress but, oh, so much more as well. :-)

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

You´ve been redecorating! Nice new look. Had fun clicking on buttons and exploring. :D

Karen said...

Wow! This is lovely, and it will take me awhile to click through to all the goodies there are to explore. Love the clean look. This reminds me that it's been a couple of years (at least) since I changed my blog header and did any cleaning up myself.

Ginger said...

oh what a treat to come by and see some changes Sian! I lOVE your new look! Those little loopy underlines remind me of knitting loops :)

I like the three columns and the crisp look, and of course your new photo.

Abi said...

LOVE the change. It's really beautiful! fantastic clean design.

Linda said...

Love the new look!

Carmen said...

Oh it's beautiful! Really is, love all that lovely white space and the soft grey doodles.

I'm reading on my PC and am not having the trouble Jemma is, don't know if that's a help or an annoyance to her :)

Ooh and I really like your picture too - you look like a literary pirate in that top :D

Mel said...

Yes I like the new look - very watercolouresque!

Sue Althouse said...

Oh yes, I do like the change very much. It has an open, airy feel. I like the soft neutrals in your sidebars, so the focus stays on your post. Great job!

humel said...

Oh, I like it very much :) Very fresh and pretty! But please don't enter me into your generous draw, as I'm still not commenting regularly yet and it's coincidental that I do have a moment to do so now when you happen to be having a giveaway, so I'd feel guilty if I did win... x

Becky said...

Lovely and fresh and easy to read :-)

alexa said...

It looks lovely, Sisn, and feels lovely - wnich is equally important! :)

Ifa said...

There were no cobwebs before! If there were, i didn't see any. I love the new look.

Lizzie said...

Yes, I do like it! I also liked the "old" version, but this is just as fun and fabby. Smart and clean-looking too - definitely no cobwebs!
Happy Bloggiversary, for soon...

Jennifer Grace said...

It looks beautiful Sian. It's good to have a change now and then, isn't it?! Cute giveaway too, I love the speech bubble stamp! x

Gem's Crafts said...

I love the new design, fresh, and bright :)

Clare said...

Loving the new look, very fresh and summery - perfect!

Missus Wookie said...

The new look reminds me of a Sian page - lots of white space and quirky bits. Delighted you were able to keep all the bits you liked too!

As for library cards, houses and thought bubble stamps - always fun to play with :)

Melissa said...

I'm finally getting caught up (a little) on blog reading, and I absolutely LOVE the new look, so refreshing!
