    tacky or wacky? (modified clip art on website)

    I'm writting up a page for discounts at christmas. I've modified a few clip art files in photoshop and I'm not sure if the page would look better without them?

    I don't want the site looking it was designed by a 5 year old by having 'clip art'. I primarily added it for something the viewer can look at which doesn't involve reading....they say a picture is a thousand words, though your english teacher may not agree

    (also, basicly ignore the title...I wanted to have something which rhymed..I'm sad like that!)

    Overall it's not bad. I'd scale down the images to similar sizes ... but they fit well together.

    I would merely suggest that you make the clipart all a uniform size.

    good good! Next I should have a warm fire at the bottom a burn marks all up the page

    I've added a nice little Father Christmas on the main page to advertise the promo now. I'll then add some more to the hosting pages. (all seems highly rushed )

    Always like sites that decorated up for the holidays. IMO shows people are really into what they are doing and not a drop and paste and let it be kinda webmaster.
    How many web hosts does it take to screw in a light bulb?
