Congratulations goes to Marie, commenter number 8, who left the following suggestion: "Maybe it's just because I am a visual person, but for my liking, the better you can make the layout and images on your blog, the better it will be. That means clear, crisp, focused images in good light. But it also means spending a little time setting up and cropping the photos so that the essence of what you want is there, clear and interesting. And if you have a few good photos you don't have to post tons and tons of them. No need to have a busy template background because it just takes away from the story that you are trying to tell."
Marie practices what she preaches. You can see her design theory on her blog, Quilt Bee.
It's clean, crisp, with the images grabbing your attention.
This was fun for me. Thanks to all for participating, and if you do choose to keep visiting, don't be surprised to see Orange Crumpled Napkin change in its layout as I apply what I learned.
