i did it again !

… that is, i changed again the blog theme …

i had two purposes, for one, i wanted the blog design present more the spirit, the joy of carving, the feeling, mark and i have when we carve, and more of the lightness that makes a good carving. it appeared to me, the new blog theme is much better in this…

the second purpose was, to make the blog easier and better to navigate for you, dear reader. the changes are not so much visible on the surface, but are substancial “under the hood” … i hope you will find now more easily what you are looking for, find the article that answers your question. and, if you just came by for a visit to enjoy reading about woodcarving, that you now can enjoy much more browsing through the extensive material provided on this blog…

as allways, this new change is open to improvement, so if you have suggestions, or constructive critique, please feel free to drop a comment. anyway, i hope you enjoy…
