First impressions?

So I've been giving a lot of thought to a new header. The above was some GREAT work by my best friend, who's a professional graphic designer. I'm so lucky! She dove into the project of getting a cute "bee-line" border, and SERIOUSLY cleaning up the scan of the 40's woman typing that I took from the pamphlet from the garage sale last weekend. Originally this morning, I sent her a picture of my "B.Clef" logo with a couple of little antennae added, colored a pale yellow with a stripe bordering the words "B.Clef".  She did some serious work on this in SUCH a short time! When we hung up, she originally said "I'll play around with it, and have something for you by maybe saturday." I was totally cool with that, and didn't want to hurry her at all. Morgan is to graphic design what I am to crafting. Once inspiration hits her and her brain gets going, LOOK OUT! Wow. I can't believe she did all this in just a few hours!

So the temporary one I threw up on the page was this one:
I took out the crazy typing woman, because we talked about "it doesn't quite all go together, does it?" We both totally agreed. But what to change? What to emphasize? Hmmm........ 

I'm asking you all, my beloved readers, what do you think? Do you like the one at the top of the page? The one below? Thoughts? She suggested that I do the fabric lettering with the entire "Wonderfully Awkward, and I've started on that project already. :) Then I saw my entire day disappearing before my eyes! ACK! I woke up at 2:45am last night and couldn't get back to sleep, so I tooled around online and started playing with graphics and fabric scans. I forced myself to stop for the day at about noon and actually get something productive done. Well, physically productive, I mean. I can't wait to finish up my re-organization project and post pictures. :) You guys are gonna love it. Anyway, feedback is very much appreciated! How do you like the new header?

  3. A ginormous thank you to Morgan, and to you guys for your inputer. :) I made a header with all of the letters in fabric, but it looked pretty crazy. So here it is! Simple, cute, and I'm comfortable to let it sit there until I get a bee in my bonnet (sorry, couldn't resist!) to refine it some more. Morg? What do you think?
