Cool Baby Kid

Cool Baby Kid is by far one of my favorite designs I have done in a long time. I absolutely love it. I am not sure if y’all have noticed but I love designing with the color Pink. LOVE IT! ha

I used the Blissful theme from StudioPress and did some tweaking to it. I actually created a new home page for it than what came with the theme. The owner of the site wanted a more uniformed look for her home page and be able to add the most current post of certain categories on the home page. I would have to say we accomplished it!

Tall Mom on the Run

Here is my latest design, Tall Mom on the Run. This was a trying design for me as there was so much that needed to be done. It was all self-inflicted though. I wanted to add a slider for Mel and I did, but nothing would move the way I wanted it to, so after working on it for quite sometime, I finally got it!

Here is the logo I made (you can also click on it to take you to the site.

Practical Parenting

Katie, from Practical Parenting is a repeat customer. She is using WordPress (which I love) and Prose from StudioPress. Katie wanted to change her colors and go more sophisticated than the colors we had chosen before. I LOVE THIS NEW DESIGN! I love the colors and the overall layout. Prose does not come with a custom home page so we created a new home page so it is not looking like a blog but more of a website with the newest posts being on the home page in the grid.

Check it out! Here is her NEW header.

**Something I wanted to mention, if you wanted to have a theme that you just wanted to change the colors and not have to get into the coding, then Prose from Genesis is the way to go! Super easy and easy to customize!

i dabble

I have to say this was probably one of the EASIEST sites I have designed in a long time. First of all, her sister in law purchased her a gift certificate for Christmas! What a great gift huh? Because of her sister in law, I will be adding this to my site soon!

Back to the design, Cara dabbles in food, fashion and crafts. She wanted to simplified her site and get it more organized! I think that is exactly what we did! She gave me blogs she liked and I went to town. There were NO changes from the original layout which is why it was one of the easiest to design!

There are a couple of things I like about this design and they are both in the post footer section. The first is the post divider & signature! With Cara adding so many pictures to her design I thought it would be a good idea to have only 1 image at the bottom so there were not 2 – 4 images in the post footer area so I combined the post divider & signature and I think it turned out great. The 2nd thing I love is the share & save button. I think the blogger save option is horrible and so unappealing so I made a custom one for Cara and it turned out great in my opinion.

The WEDucator

The WEDucator, is this not the most clever name! I love it. This is a WordPress design. Tia had an idea of what she wanted with her old blog but could not get it to work with her old theme. So I told her, I can do anything with StudioPress themes. Have I ever mentioned how AWESOME they are! They are fantastic. So what we did was take a FREE theme from StudioPress called Copyblogger (love this one) and I adapted it to have it the way she needed the home page. I have to say, I think it looks FANTASTIC. It is elegant, sophisticated and fun!

Sweet Basil

Carrianne has some yummy recipes over at Sweet Basil! The first time I visited her site she has the most delicious Peanut Butter/Chocolate brownie or cookie. I was like, I have died and gone to heaven. HA

Check out her site!

Featured Post Widget

Here is the video tutorial on how to set up your featured post widget Featured Post Tutorial.

Snippy Snappy

Well I am still running a little behind from being so sick this past week but I did manage to get a site installed after it being completed for almost a week. It is called Snippy Snappy and I just love it! She wanted something simple for the posting area and for the header but a background that matched a water bottle of hers and I think it turned out FANTASTIC if I do say so myself. I made the background myself and I was a little worried when I saw this pattern but it looks pretty good.

Still Living the Dream

Jennifer and I have been working on this site forever! She wanted to have a custom image for her header and NO ONE would email her back until Armation did. It looks AWESOME! I so wish I could be this talented when it comes to vector images. I think her design is super fun and represents her perfectly.

Check it out here (click on header image):

A Little of Everything

Courteney from A Little of Everything contacted me about a week ago about a makeover for her blogger design. I have to say doing a blogger design is so relaxing to me. I absolutely love these colors and the image from her design came from Mygrafico Vector & Cliparts. Aren’t they adorable?!?!

Here is her new design.

Life is Hard, Laugh Anyway

I did not design this site but I did transfer it for Latorsha. She got the transfer for free after using one of my affiliate links for BlueHost and then only paid $30 for the transfer of her design which Kate from over at 2711 Designs did.

Click on the header below to go to Latorsha’s site. Thanks Latorsha for allowing me to transfer your site! It was a pleasure working with you.

The Post Event

Timeesha over at the The Post Event wanted a blog design to go with her business blog but a little bit more subtle and I think that is what she got. One thing I added to her site which I LOVE LOVE LOVE is the multi-tabbed widget. It is a good way to UNCLUTTER your sidebars (not saying her sidebars are cluttered but another option to clean your sidebars up).

Click on the header below to go to her blog.

 

Multi Tabbed Widget Tutorial

Here is my very 1st video tutorial and it is not the greatest but I am working on it. It is to explain how to add and remove gadgets from the multi-tabbed widget in blogger.

Brooklyn Active Mama

Here is my newest design. It is for Schnelle from Brooklyn Active Mama!

You can check it out by clicking on the header image below:

It Ain’t Always Pretty…

Here is another new site. I always get worried when a client wants a white background with a white posting area & sidebar area because I very rarely do these types of designs but I think this one turned out fantastic. Used 2 different colors (orange & blue) to keep it very simple.

Click on the header to take you to the site.

New Design

Anna is a repeat customer and she wanted to transfer her site from Blogger to WordPress. I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE her new site. She really pushed me to add some new things to the design. She liked the Fabric theme but she also liked the tabbed widget from the News Theme from StudioPress so that is what she got, the Fabric design with the News Theme tabbed widget.

Another new site!!!

I have been running way behind but I finally am getting caught up (thank you work). Here is another site I just installed. I love how it turned out. The model image is from Istock but I just love how she looks like she is walking on a runway.

Like always click on the image to take you to Ria’s site Runway Couture!

2 More New sites

Here are 2 more sites I created. These have been really fun ones to do. Pink is one of my favorite colors to use and both of these have it. Check them out below. Click on the image to take you to their site.

Favorite Site

Hello all,

I belong to a group on Facebook for blog designers and we share links all the time and I have to say this link is my all TIME FAVORITE!!! You will think so too I think.

If you like looking around for some sweet looking social icons then this is for you. I could sit down all day and look around but sometimes I have to work.

So here is the site, you can check it out here.

3 New designs

Now that I am actually off work for a week or so, I am able to do a little bit more designing (YAY ME!). Here are some new designs I have done.

 

New Designs

Hello all,

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Father’s Day with your family. I am finally able to post some new designs I did. I keep saying, keep looking out for some new freebies, they are COMING, I promise. I have been super busy with designs that I have not had a chance to get things up.

I am back!

Hello all,

I am finally back! THANK YOU LORD!!! I had a major meltdown with my old laptop. I have a fantastic one and I love. It is a big thing so I am getting use to having a 17″ monitor.

I will be updating lots of things shortly. Work has calmed down a bit so it is time for me to be able to get caught up on the blogs I missed. I am going to be adding some freebie backgrounds and whole designs. I have some great clip art I purchased that I want to use instead of sitting on my external hard drive. So check back in a couple of weeks to find the freebies.

If you…

Hello all,

If you filled out a questionnaire for a blog design, please fill it out again. There was something wrong with my email address on the form.

Thanks

Rant, sort of, plus a PSA (Public Service Announcement)

Hello all,
I want to let you all know that in about 2 weeks I will be back to 100%. My computer decided to crash and burn on me and I have one on order and it is suppose to be here on 5/31 (this can not come soon enough!).

So for my PSA!

This has been irking me for quite some time and to be honest some people are blinded by the light of some designers out there. Let me say say this, most of us (blog designers) are SELF TAUGHT! Yep you read that right we are self taught. I have never taken a design class nor an HTML class at a college. Do I want to? YES, but with my job there is no possible way to do so. I have a friend, Tara, who got me started. She was redoing her blog and I loved it. I was in the digital scrapbooking world and I wanted to redo my blog so I started doing some research online on how to add certain things to my site and wa la, my blog design got started. I like to design and so I decided to start designing for CUSTOMERS. I never once took a class and never needed to. It really irks when there are designers out there who promote one self and their “clan” and act like they rule the world.

Here is my PSA for you, LOOK AT THE DESIGNER’S PORTFOLIO. If you like what you see then go with them, if you don’t like it then go searching for another designer. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!!!

My friend and I are thinking of making our own badge called, We are Blog Designers and we are SELF TAUGHT!

Waiting

If you are waiting on a design from me please hold on. My computer somehow got a virus from somewhere and it is in the shop

Thanks
