Is there anything I need to change/improve? I feel like it needs something, but I can't place what. :P
In the off chance I need to change my set, here it is again:

Adding depth to text that's already so thin may not have the best effect. (Namely, "so little time".)
Also, your avatar is really cute but I think borders have never hurt anyone, and I feel that a border could do wonders.
Just my thoughts.

How's this? Is there anything else I should change?

I really like how you laid out the sig. The images are nice above the text, and you placed the subtext pretty correctly.
What you might feel is "missing" is a better background. Since this is obviously a large sig, you should add a simple repeating pattern or a nice texture to the background. Maybe use light blue or white. Or both.
Also, the text is extremely "3D". This is ok sometimes but it doesn't fit with the flatter images. I'd say try keeping the shadow, but reducing the glare or shininess or whatever you call it on the actual text.
Also, make the border an equal distance from the inner border on all sides.

It's much better now. Easier to read. Good work. When you have time, try to make the avatar a bit more like the sig - the text is hard to see at first.
Have you just started? And what program do you use? /totally not stalking, just canadian

Yeah, I've edited stuff before (mostly just to color in drawings) but I am just starting out with signatures. I use Photoshop Elements 7. Although, I might need to find more brushes so I can do more effects. :P What do you use?

Also, using a slightly duller color of blue for the background might be a bit better. It just seems pretty oversaturated to me. I think the subtext might look a bit better in a shade darker than that of the main text as well. I can't really explain myself very well, but try it if you wantand see if you like it.
The placement of images and text in the signature is spot on. That can be a difficult balance to strike, so good job. You did a pretty well for a relative newcomer to making sets.
Browsing deviantArt for brushes can be really helpful (just make sure to read whether or not you have to link back or credit, as well as the comments to make sure you're getting what you think you are). Downloading some novelty or specialty fonts is a huge help as well (dafont.com is good for this).

Yeah, I may end up scrapping the avatar anyway. It got chopped a bit when I had to adjust something.
I'm inbetween computers right now, so I'll clean it up/adjust the sig when I get Photoshop installed in my new computer. ;)
Thanks for advice, you have good eye to notice those little things.
