This post is mostly just an excuse to experiment with the free button pack from DIYThemes!
If you missed this, the guys over at DIY Themes have released a free download that will help you to spruce up your website using some CSS3 magic. If you missed it, I suggest you:
It’s good to see things happening over at the DIY Themes site given the low level of activity last year. Apparently there is a new full time developer working on the project and Thesis 2 might even be released some day soon!
But for now it’s nice to see these little extras popping up, it’s these things that set a premium theme apart from the free alternatives.
Installation involves pasting some code into your Thesis custom.css file, don’t worry, there are clear instructions on how to do this on the DIYThemes site.

Here are some examples I plan on using:
