tasselflower blog: New Tomato Branch layout 130211

This new look of Tomato Branch has been up and running for about a week now. And as I promised, it's time to give a little tour around the new and improved. As you can see, the design is heavily inspired by all these crafts and handmade based sites I've been storming around lately. And as usual, it looks like... Me, i guess.

The main idea was to implement a handmade look but make it clean and easy. Sort of scrapbook-y without being too wild. I wanted to use subtle colors like on the previous theme. Actually you may notice the background is the recycled from the old look, as are some of the other design elements.

The Facebook Like buttons, which made me obsessively frustrated, seem to be working now. At least on maybe most blog posts (not all). Perhaps I will tell later how I got it working, since I found out I wasn't all alone with my problems.

There's a little addition to the commenting: If you want to see the follow up comments to your input, choose "notify me when new comments are posted" from somewhere there on the bottom of the comment form. Do remember to give a valid email address, cause that's how you'll get the notifications. Please let me know if something doesn't work or there's some problem. You may also let me know if everything works and sun is shining.
