i need your help!

Happy Monday! I was hoping if any of you have time to give me some feedback about the new design I've uploaded here on the blog-I'd be most appreciative! I've noticed the page loads a little slower and kinda wacky-but not so much that I think it must go- but if you disagree...or have other problems- please let me know! Also knowing that not all monitors are the same size or large enough to see the new background- I worry that the birds and text are being cut off in a strange way. I want the message to be, "hello!" not,  "H-E-double hockey sticks". That would be bad.  Thank you!
 What do you think of my new hat?! Is it fabulous...or over the top?

I also have an announcement that I'm finally able to create blogs on Wordpress.org in addition to Blogger-so let me know if I can be of service to you! xo

I didn't have a problem with load time, but almost the entire background is cut off... nothing bad, I just don't see any graphics unless I zoom out of the normal screen... I see blue and orange blocks of colors and a 1/4 of a bird towards the behind... none of the flowers or the "hello" are even in the frame.

I love the background, the colors are great and really go well with your header. I hope you stick with it!

Looks great on my screen.

The background is cute and has a great vintage feel! But I had to stretch the window quite a bit on my Mac to see the little bird at the top tweeting "Hello!" It was also cutting off a bit of the flowers and a bird beak or too...
Hope this helps :)
xo,
Ivy

ps--your chapeau is cute too :)

The birdie's head is not showing,which might not be intentional?
I'm using a macbook with firefox, just so you know. =)
(pretty layout, btw)

It doesn't seem to take any longer to load than it did before, but frankly, I frequently navigate away before it finishes simply because it does take way too long. A shame, because I really enjoy your site.

hello Katie... i saw your plea for help and hot-footed it over here!

the new layout looks lovely... but i'm not seeing 'hello' and the green bird is disappearing behind your posts... all of the flowers have been cot in half too ~ i'm using IE...

hope this helps!?

ps ~ the hat is fabulous, but i think it would look even more so with a yellow canary perched in there somewhere... ;)

Loaded quickly and looks just fine for me. Always happy to read one of your posts and love the new look! Happy Monday back to you!

I have been meaning to mention how much I love the new background, so thanks for prompting me. I haven't had any trouble with it loading, and I also think it is easier to read since only one side has additional resources.
And yes...I love that hat.

it actually made my computer freeze for a minute or two, plus i can only see the bird's behind... on a pc :(

Hi
The layout and design is very pretty but, it did take longer to load and the imagery on the top left isn't working on my screen. Just a thought- It might look nice with just the blue chambray around the border.
Cute hat.

The page loads very slow for me, and I only stick around because I love your site. Any other site I would be gone.

Also, I only see the tails of the birds in the background. Too bad since it seems like it might be a lovely one.
