Hey do you think you can shrink the picture a bit. It takes covers the entire screen when I clicked to enlarge it. Cute blog by the way.

It must be your computer as it shows up a normal size on my computer. So I'm not sure where the issue is. I'll keep looking into it though.

Nice pattern!
The picture is normal-sized on the blog, but is gigantic when enlarged. Which seems like a good thing to me....
