A New Look for Spring and feedback needed

What do you think? RM created this new header for me, and I love it! Please let me know if it looks funky to you, or if you the text is moving too quickly. RM says he can fix it if it becomes a problem. I am noodling around with a swap idea and want to know if anyone is interested. I'm thinking of starting a "Vacation Swap." My idea comes from the promise of spring and summer. I was thinking that we do a one time small swap of something knit that follows the theme of a summer vacation such as a felted bag with a paperback inside for beach reading, or a set of knit washcloths with some nice soap and potpourri for a "spa" theme. This would be a small swap, with a cost suggestion of $15 total, but the swap would need to include a knit item. I'm thinking that the date that the swap package should be sent by June 1st, in time for summer vacations. Anyone interested?

Thanks for the vote for Lorna's & Claudia's - I don't know about Claudia so I'll check it out.

Banner is great and no, the words move at just the right pace.

I shouldn't even think of doing a swap, but I have never done one and June 1st would be a doable time frame. Count me in!

The banner looks great! It's not too fast at all. Still pretty easy to read the text too.

A vacation swap might be fun. June 1? Sounds good to me.

It looks great - all works fine on my puter. I won't go in the swap though - I have joined my quota for a moment. Cheers!

I love your new look!! The banner is fantastic and the text moves at just the right speed. Love it! Your Vacation Swap sounds like a wonderful idea. To be honest, I'm feeling a little stressed from all the KAL's I've joined recently... if I can produce some FO's and cross some items off the KAL list by the end of the month, though, I'd love to join your swap. The cost suggestion sounds just right, too. Is there a joining deadline? Sounds like such fun! Take care and have a fantastic weekend, Jennifer! :-)

Great new banner - just right.

I'll probably have to pass on the swap - but it does sound like a fun idea!

Love the new banner. The swap sounds like a great idea, but I hate to commit to something I can't fulfill with certainty.

I like the new look too! But I don't see any words moving. Hmmm...

Thanks for the nice comments about my mittens! They were really fun, and the colorwork wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.

The banner is terrific; the font, in particular, is fantastic!

Hey, what's one more KAL? I'm about to go on a between-quarters break, so I'll have lots of time, right?! Count me in!!

I love the blooming flower. :) I wish I could figure out my blog to get it to do cool things. Any time I go fiddle w/ the HTML, things get very very bad. No swap for me I'm afraid...exams. :(((

I love the swap idea. Can I commit later? I want to make sure I will have the time. We are opening the store in two weeks, and I'm swamped.

Oh, I"m interested in that! A vacation swap sounds like fun. And I love your new banner -- that flower that blinks in is so cute. It's not too fast at all.

If I had time I'd do a swap - but I can't :o( Sounds like a great idea, though!

Love the new look! :) I'm gonna have to pass on the swap though, I think, because I have a lot going on now, between moving and a bunch of baby gifts to knit. Really fun idea though!

I guess I've been AWOL in the blogosphere for too long! So many of your posts to read.

I love the new look. The animation looks good over here.

I'd love to do a swap as I've never done one and think I can handle the time frame. Thanks for the great idea!
