Hip-hip-hippo-hooray

The blog was looking a bit, er, plain. So what better pick-me-up than a makeover?

Thank you to the very talented Maree who designed the blog header and brought the Hoppo Bumpo hippo to life. She's quick, consultative and full of great ideas.

And good with hippo eyes. What more could you ask for?

Maree's blog with samples of her wonderful work is over here.
