Golf Club Cutie and a Weekend Facelift

Two human years, it's been theorized, is like 10 in blog years, which means Golf Girl's Diary is approaching 45... and I realized a few days ago that the time had come for a facelift.

I didn't want to do anything radical, just a quick fix to reverse the signs of aging... without down time or risk of complications, if you know what I mean...and if you've ever inadvertently messed up the coding on your blog, you do.



Hence the weekend facelift and a slightly new look for Golf Girl's Diary. I'll probably continue to tinker around with it for a while, and eventually I'll go for the extreme makeover with a board certified designer, but for the time being I'm getting used to the new look and feeling quite... rejuvenated.  Plus, I had an amazing amount of fun with the color selection tool I used.

If you love color, you'll love COLOURlovers. It's a kind of social network where members "create and share colors, palettes and patterns to nurture their ongoing love affair with color" and it's built around a powerful suite of color scheme and pattern generation tools.  You can generate your look from a photo or illustration too. I got the color scheme for this blog by uploading my Golf Girl Media logo.

When you come up with a color palette you can name it and share it with others.  The funniest part was went I did a search for golf and came up an awesome selection of eclectic color schemes. Below are just a few of hundreds of golf related palettes:
