Autumn Gallery - Photos from Pexels

As I was perusing the internet for autumn photos, I ran across, a site with loads of nice photos. What´s even better is that all the photos are free, both for commerical and noncommercial use and no attribution is required. I support giving credit to photographers so I have provided the credits that were given for each of these photos. I definitely plan on using Pexels in the future. It was easy to find photos and you can download photos in the dimensions you plan on using. ...

I was late launching the new design so I realized I had to get started on the spring-summer design. So, the last couple of weeks I have spent time working on color schemes and background images for spring. I had done the color scheme a while back but after I finishing the main background image for the front page, I need to make some changes...

Website Launch 2018

Click on image for full-sized image. As I mentioned in a blog post in October 2017, I spent a lot of time in 2017 learning as much as possible about Yootheme Pro site builder and started to be very active on the forum. I finally got off the forum and decided to revamp my website and implement Yootheme Pro as most of the features I wanted to use were finally available and working properly. My plan was to launch the new site before Christmas, but we all know how it often goes with best-laid...
