^^to be read in a sing-song voice.
So, you know that one Smart Remarks Book Club Blog that looks like a homeless person designed it? Well, the other day Landee suggested I redo the header. Like, take a new picture of that shelf in my office, but this time dust it off first, and remove the highlighters and wrappers and other debris, and then arrange all of the book club books we've read so far on the shelf.
^^whole paragraph to be sung. (tune of your choice)
I was on board right away, because it's an adorable idea, only problem, I was missing 9 out of 17 (yes, can you believe 17 books already!!!) of our books, due to my rich-person Kindle, which allows me to download digi-books instantly at the touch of a wand. Plus my neighbor had two of them. So, Landee goes, no prob, I'll take a pic of whatever books I have and you can photoshop them in.
^^sing all that too.
Sounds simple, eh? Maybe. But we practically spent an entire day coordinating photo shoots, discussing shadows and real light verses flash, and matching angles, and emailing pics back and forth, etc. Yeah, we took the whole thing vry srs.
So, here we go from totally geek...
(old header, ya know)
To totally chic...
To totally chic...
Like you fell into a rabbit hole and came out in heaven, eh?
Lots of those books weren't even on the shelf when I took the pic. Magical, ain't it? I can only take credit for arranging the pic, photo shopping in some of the books, adding a few shadows, adding those whimsical waves, and building the entire shelf (plus wainscoting) with my own two hands. Landee added more books and then actually made it look good. It was practically ugly when I email it to her. It had this weird vomit-like hue due to my lighting issues. She fixed the color, added some doilies of some sort, and picked the most perfect fonts (she's a master with fonts).
Only problem is, we're missing one of our books.<--singsong it. Neither of us had a hard copy. See if you can discover which one is missing. Winner gets everybody's favorite prize-->bragging rights.
Anyway, go see how fancy the SRBC blog looks now. We painted the walls in there too. I had hoped it would dry a shade lighter, but what are ya gonna do?
