BLOG MAKEOVER GIVEAWAY - you WANT to check this out!
Posted Oct 23 2009 10:03pm
I was ready for a change. For my blog. Although, I could personally use a makeover for myself but that'll just have to wait.....for, like, 15 years. You know, make sure I still have hair left by the time the kids all graduate high school.
So yeah, I got a blog makeover...how do you like it? I was kinda getting tired of the old look....ready for a change. And perhaps a beach theme seems a little, uh, well, out of season but we just love everything about the beach so it fit well. The colors are so calming...every time the kids stress me out, I just take a look at my blog and imagine I'm laying on a beach somewhere with a margarita in my hand!
Danielle at The Design Girl did my makeover and she was wonderful to work with. She sent me links to her portfolio and allowed me the freedom to choose whichever look I wanted that would represent our family best.
At the same time, she was extremely helpful when I needed her opinion on something, especially since we all know how I have a hard time making even the simplest decisions. She was honest about what she felt would look best, based on the design I chose. After perusing through the many blogs she's designed, I completely trusted her opinion.
Once I made a final decision on everything from the design, the elements and the background, she brought it to life and I was blown away by how awesome it looks. I'm one of those people who has a difficult time imagining in my head how something will look...that's because I have, like, zero creativity.
What Danielle put together for me far exceeded my expectations. I'm in love with the new look! And she was such a pleasure to work with...great communication, answered e-mails promptly...everything you would expect from a truly amazing blog designer, who takes great pride in her work.
Danielle has been generous enough to offer one of my readers a FREE STANDARD PHOTO BLOG MAKEOVER (valued at $75.00).
