Here is what my old design looked like in case you can’t remember (or you are a new visitor, in which case HI! Welcome)
For my new design, I worked with Tiana from The Blog Decorator. She is super nice and so quick! I loved all of her premade templates but to best suit my needs I wanted a drop down navigation menu and only one of the templates had that. So I chose that template but I mixed and matched the background and header from one of the other templates. She made everything so easy and she was really accommodating. She sent me drafts within 1 day and responded to all of my emails almost instantly it seemed.
If you are looking for a new blog design I HIGHLY recommend her! She has lots of beautiful premades for very reasonable prices and she can customize any of them to be exactly how you want. She also does wonderful custom work. She gave me multiple header designs to pick from right off the bat and she changed my post signature when I was being my usual picky self. She also answered all of my questions and she set everything up for me!
To complete my design, I got to know Pixlr, which is awesome and FREE! If you haven’t used it, you should totally check it out as an alternative to photoshop.
I made all new post graphics to match my pretty new blue design. I made review labels and post type labels and a new rating system and a blog button. I went a little graphics crazy and I don’t even want to tell you how long it took me to make all of those little dots line up. Haha! I am proud of my little creations, so I wanted to share them with you.
So what do you think of my new design and graphics?
