Default My site....

not CSS because I don't know how. I wish I did tho. Anyway, I love little green tree frogs so I thought up this concept.

Thoughts?

You're out of bandwidth. I'll try to remember to check back tomorrow.

Fixed... I had to change the limit. It was set at 1 meg rather than a gig. DOH!

Now you can "run out" 1023 more times.

Menu:
The switching from the flower to frog is distracting, and annoying. Just keep it the flower, and you could make it when hovered go to how the non-current pages are when not hovered, except you'll have the flower rather then frog.

Logo:
Good logo, but that frong isn't on that leaf, you need to do a bit of blending there and make the frog look like it's on the leaf. More detail in the leaf would be good as well.

The g in designs looks like it it attempting to be attached to the leaf, if it is, you need to make it connect properyly, if not, you need to make it not look like it is supposed to.

Your logo should also be a link.

That's all I see right now. Update us when you have content up.

Ok, so my two cents... i really like the softness of the design - it is creative and peaceful. I would use a bit harder drop shadow,so it looks like the frog is on the leaf and not hovering over it.

Instead of the alternating frog and flower, consider adding a tongue to the frog icon and just have it pop-out when you rollover it. I kind of agree with meesa that the switch from left to right is a bit annoying and hard to overlook.

Other than that - it's a nice design.

Ryan.

Thanks you two. I need to tweak it, yes. It is just a concept. And yes, it annoys me too about the lily jumping around. That wasn't suppose to happen. I mucked up in DW somewhere.

I'm working on the things mentioned. Thanks!!

I would make the page background color the same as the center area's color, to blend in.

For SEO purposes, use some alt text in your images, and DON'T point the "home" link to "/index.html"; point it to "/" instead.

Good luck

i like it apart from frog issues already raised but if you change some characters in your email link in the code you can help reduce spambots

I would suggest that you keep the frog rather than switching it to a flower. I would agree its a little distracting. You may also want to take out the wooden stuff that serves as a border. I think it'll look a lot better without it.

yep. I agree with elnathan, remove the bamboo

also try not to design using tables - and put your styles in a separate file.
