Blog Makeover!

I am almost done making over my blog!

I added a left side column, added the background wallpaper and the black background behind the posts, fixed the sizing of my banner, etc. (my blog was waaaay to wide before), Changed the "About Me" section to a cute Polaroid picture of me, added some new graphics and I added the blog buttons of a lot of awesome bloggers that I follow.

Now all that I need to do is make cute custom headers for a few different sections and create better graphics for my email and my pandaslovesurprises info and I'll be all done!

Then after that I need to figure out how to go about getting more followers :P

I would love to know what you think, and if you have any suggestions!

Etsy's Birthday

For Etsy's Birthday two days ago, they did this promotional thing on twitter where they said, "Celebrate with us: Reply with an @Etsy link to an item you've had your eye on...we feel like buying 5 random people a gift!! (At 5pm ET)." I think I was the second person to tweet what I wanted, and it was this lovely Bad Bird print that I've blogged about before:

I didn't win. But it was such an exciting prospect that I MIGHT get a free Etsy item of my choosing, that I went through my favorites and picked out all of the things I would ask Etsy for if I could, and here they are:

(as always you can click the photos for a link to their listings)

This incredibly adorable belt by Laru

My favorite tights in the world!

This awesome ring, that I've definitely blogged about way too many times already :P

This gnome pillow - I'm totally in love with his face!!

Another Bad Bird print. ♥ ♥ ♥

Sigh. I imagine this little guy nestled onto my bookshelf, tucked away, waiting to be discovered ♥

Hehe. I love the idea of feltidermy. A lot. I don't know if I'd really want a dikdik - I'd probably want one of the deer with fangs or something, but this is my favorite guy in the GirlSavage shop at the moment :)

This necklace has been an long-time Etsy favorite :)

This shirt is FANTASTIC!!

I ♥ this laptop art

and last but not least, this purse is amazing. Red + a giant bow? Yes please!
