    Beautiful Sally! I absolutely love the swirls and curves of my custard pie.

  2. May 17, 2012 8:14 am

    Beautiful logo… Very creative Sally.I see a slice of life there! that makes me happy 🙂 Have a wonderful Holiday in Nepal. It is a beautiful country. Take your cereal along.

    I do! I love the new header! Have a great time in Kathmandu! 🙂

    Lovely header Sally, and specifically like the new tagline, very clever 😉

  5. May 17, 2012 9:17 am

    I love the custard pie logo…the ‘artisanal’ quality of the drawing is perfect for your blog 🙂 I must admit that I’m so used to your previous jug logo that this will take some getting used to, but I do like the fresh look that’s far more representative of your blog than the previous one. I especially like the lettering inside the pie, didn’t realize that this was another talent of yours!

    Congrats on the new logo and look, we need you to bake us a real custard pie now to celebrate the change 😀

    Oh Sally I love it! The drawing is great and your lettering is awesome. You should do more of that. I really like the photo of your desk too.

  7. May 17, 2012 9:57 am

    The new design is so you!
    It looks great!

  8. May 17, 2012 10:04 am

    Ok so you have got calligraphy down! Check! Great use of your gifts. Well done! Love the new look!

  9. May 17, 2012 10:13 am

    Very nice Sally! Really like the colours and the slogan. Have fun in Kathamandu! the city quite something i think…

  10. May 17, 2012 10:33 am

    Love the new header and yes I do find your pie has the delightful touch of ‘Searlishness’ about it!!

    Had a giggle too at the wonderful throwaway line… ‘I’m off to Kathmandu for the weekend’…you lucky thing-do enjoy!

  11. May 17, 2012 11:04 am

    I love your new pie! Especially the handwriting. Recently I was terrified to find that I’m so used to my computer that I feel it unnaturally to write by hand, this is why I started to write the things that impress me in a notebook, just to keep me in practice.
    And to answer your question – aside from baking and working with chocolate, the thing that busts the stress the most for me is weeding out the garden, oh, and soapmaking too.

    Lurrrve the pie 🙂 Redesigns are fun xx

  13. May 17, 2012 11:08 am

    Finally a pie in the header! Yeay! I really like it. Used to sew, knit, paint and draw, but haven’t done so in years. I recently started finding some time each day to start being creative again. Perhaps you will see some changes in my blog sometime too:)

  14. May 17, 2012 12:18 pm

    Great new look – love that it’s your own. I have wanted to change my look for the longest time but alas just don’t seem to have it as a top priority.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    🙂 Mandy

    Mabrouk – lovely and fresh and very you! Mind you, I will miss your cute custard jug 🙂 I am a big fan of calligraphy especially Iranian artists – this may sound odd but the pen I use daily is a cheap calligraphy marker – can’t seem to write with anything else. I studied art and fashion design but sadly have not kept it up. Good for you. Enjoy Kathmandu, make sure to visit Baktapur as well. x

    • May 27, 2012 8:36 am

      That jug has served me well but alas I must retire it. Have to leave Baktapur for next time as ran out of time. I also like writing with a calligraphy pen.

  16. May 17, 2012 12:36 pm

    W hat a lovely new header! It is awesome.



    • May 27, 2012 8:35 am

      Praise indeed Rosa – much appreciated.

  17. May 17, 2012 12:37 pm

    Sally, I love it! I love the ‘final’ pie and the writing is brilliant. You have limitless talent, my friend! I love that the header embraces the custard in the way that you embrace food and life. Have a wonderful weekend away! x

    • May 27, 2012 8:34 am

      You are very kind Ren – thank you so much my friend.

  18. May 17, 2012 12:43 pm

    The new header is perfect! It shows says exactly what you do and you really get a sense of who you are. Colours say so much but a word and a drawing put it all together so nicely! Well done. Very inspirational. I feel the need to get my paints out now!

    • May 27, 2012 8:34 am

      I’m so pleased you think that – I do too. Get those paints out – you won’t regret it.

  19. May 17, 2012 1:00 pm

    Well done, Sally! absolutely love your new header. Have fun in Kathmandu!

    • May 27, 2012 8:33 am

      Thanks Nadia – will write about it soon.

  20. May 17, 2012 3:08 pm

    The new look was the first thing I noticed, and I love it 🙂

  21. May 17, 2012 3:35 pm

    I love it!!!

  22. May 17, 2012 4:54 pm

    The new design is absolutely gorgeous! Love the custard pie, and the fact that it’s all hand drawn illustration. Now I want one for myself!

    • May 27, 2012 7:47 am

      Oooh yes – little loaf has a lot of potential….you’ve got me thinking now 🙂

  23. May 17, 2012 6:11 pm

    It looks fantastic Sally!

    • May 27, 2012 7:46 am

      Thanks Redawna – praise coming from such a creative person.

  24. May 17, 2012 7:42 pm

    It’s great! What a fun creative talent. A friend of mine recently taught me how to crochet. It’s become one of those wonderful mindless activities where time seems to fly by 🙂 I’d love to see more of you art in your posts!

    • May 27, 2012 7:45 am

      Crafty projects are not my thing at all and I’m in awe of people like you who can crochet and knit etc. My daughter is great at it – I don’t have the patience (although can take forever over a piece of writing or painting).

  25. May 17, 2012 8:57 pm

    I love your beautiful new header! It’s a little whimsical but classy.

    • May 27, 2012 7:44 am

      That’s a real compliment – just what I wanted to achieve.

  26. May 17, 2012 9:45 pm

    It looks fantastic Sally. I love the fact that the Custard pie also looks like a giant sun amidst a sky full of foodie objects. Congratulations on the new look. I had got used to your previous logo so probably it will take some time to sink in. I wish my study table had such a beautiful view. But then I guess I wouldn’t be concentrating on my work!

    Cheers to the new look, a new beginning, a new Custard pie!

    • May 27, 2012 7:43 am

      Thanks Ishita – I do most of my work staring at the wall. Maybe I should change that!

    Beautiful header! I love the colors! Congrats on the new look!

    • May 27, 2012 7:42 am

      Thank you – I still get a lift when I see them

  29. May 18, 2012 9:29 am

    Beautiful calligraphy work. Love the new logo and header. Best of Luck!

    • May 27, 2012 7:41 am

      So nice to hear from you. Hope all as well as it can be in Libya. Glad you like the new look.

  30. May 18, 2012 4:25 pm

    I love the new look, Sally!! It’s beautiful! We all need a change from now and then right?
    I changed my header about a week ago too and I feel invigorated 🙂

    • May 27, 2012 7:41 am

      Really like your new look too. 🙂

  31. May 18, 2012 7:05 pm

    Love the new look – its bright and warm. And oh stress….I know ALL about it. My last post (Le Beurre Fait Maison) was on the very topic. Busting it? Food – cooking, making, baking, trying to find peace and quiet and calm in the troubles restless waters of life. Have fun away X X X

    • May 27, 2012 7:40 am

      As always you’ve summed it up perfectly Ozoz.

  32. May 19, 2012 6:03 pm

    I love it Sally. Love the thought that goes behind people’s blogs. xx

    • May 27, 2012 7:39 am

      Glad you like it. It’s a very personal space isn’t it.

    Love it! You’ve put together a lovely banner. I for one would like to stop cooking for a bit or at least not be in the crazy rush to get lunch on the table every afternoon.

    • May 27, 2012 7:38 am

      Certainly in this heat my passion to be in the kitchen wanes a bit too.

  35. May 22, 2012 3:59 pm

    I’m loving the lavenderish-blue. So serene.

    Have a fab trip to Nepal. Eat a LOT of momos and try and get some of that fantastic chutney back!

    • May 27, 2012 7:37 am

      It’s a colour a feel good about – agree with serenity (need some in my life!) Chutney? Where was the chutney?!

    Hi there, lovely new header Sally!

    • May 27, 2012 7:35 am

      So glad the comment worked in the end – thanks for persevering.

  39. June 7, 2012 9:27 am

    I LOVE this new look, Sally. I love the looseness, and the coziness that eminates from just the script and the pie sketch/watercolor/logo. Fantastic job! Must be something in the air because I have a “bee in my bonnet” for a new header, and have been stewing on it. Hoping June is my month! As for stress-busting? Well, the whole blogging process is truly satisfying… Cooking, styling and shooting, and then writing. Oh?! Did I forget to mention: eating? And, then my art work whenever (and if ever) I make time for it.
