Look, I'm all dressed up!

Wonder Shannon at Eight Crazy Designs made this new header for me and I am pretty darn excited. She was exceedingly patient with me as I wondered how to execute what was vaguely in my head. I knew I wanted a particular font and thought it might look good over a picture of a traditional Nepali textile pattern. I couldn't find one to save my life so I finally just sent over a few of my pictures to her. She found the map background and voila - here we are! The blue and red are the colors found on the Nepali flag.

The pictures left to right respectively are:
1) Man in front of a door a the Pathan Durbar Square - an old palace square.
2) The Himalayas - taken from a Mt. Everest flight.
3) Bags of dye seen in the markets.
4) "Fewa Tal" - or Lake Fewa in Pokhara.

That was fun. Now my hoodlums beckon so my "screen time" is over.

Namaste
