I like both of them, but I actually prefer the first. I'm not big on the animated buttons.
personally the awesome Trish doesn't care for animated buttons either! ((LOL)) but lots of people do so that got made first and then I thought well... lets make a not animated one too.
I don't like animated as much as I like unanimated, so I'm inclined to go for the first, BUT...I first read it as, "UN-ECTED" (my brain, I know) just because of the way it wraps.I guess I'd do the first one, but I wonder...could it be redone (if Trish the Awesome is willing) so you have in large font, centered:wife*mommy*addictand then in the small font below that, put "the Unexpected"?I'm fond of banners that catch my eye, and the above would, because really -- the title's not as important as grabbing eyes FIRST and then giving them the payload, ya know? Just a thought -- they're both great and the header is fabulous.
