Trying on a new look for the Advent season

I really just wanted a theme with a main column and two sidebars, and with the free blog, the pickin’s are pretty slim. I like the themes by Andreas Viklund, though most of my favorite ones by him are not offered here. Argh. So I’m trying this one for now, for the layout and for the Advent/Christmas colors it provides. I’m using purple right now since it’s the liturgical color of Advent for weeks 1, 2, and 4, pink or rose being used for week 3. (Some communities use blue instead of purple since purple is also the color used in Lent.) I’m trying the snow effect too. For now. It may prove too annoying to keep it for long. Let me know if it bugs you. I don’t mind turning it off.

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

      Yeah, I almost didn’t do it, for that reason. I’m still toying with the idea of using the Sandbox theme so I can edit the CSS and have both sidebars with my own custom header and all. When I have time. I also have to upgrade to do that, so I’ve been trying to decide whether to do that or to go with a self-hosted WordPress option or to go with Blogger where I can customize and use other themes to my heart’s content without paying a dime. So many decisions, so little mind. :)

      Are the snowflakes getting on your last nerve yet? ;)
