My Awesome New Design!!

Ok folks, can you say "Ecstatic"? That's exactly what I am with my new blog look.

I spent the last couple weeks checking out other blogs, wondering how I could do certain things to spice it up. Unfortunately, I'm not .html savvy by any stretch of the imagination. So I started asking questions of other blog/website owners. My biggest question was how to have extra pages on my blog.

Well, one of the blogs that I had checked out, Penelope's Oasis, had a cute design. I sent her an email not realizing she'd had her page designed for her. As I went back to surf her blog (she does awesome giveaways) I noticed a button on the side of her blog. It said, "Crissy's Blog Design" and I knew I needed to check Crissy out.

So I headed to Crissy's site: Crissy's Blog Design. You can tell a lot about a person's abilities and creativeness by their site. Crissy's was adorable! I loved the bright colors, fonts, and the little additions: swirls at the end of the post & green tacks next to the post title.



I sent her an email after browsing other sites she had designed. I guessed it would take a bit of time to hear back from her. Was I wrong. She was so wonderful to work with and such a great communicator. Crissy answered all my questions honestly and had great ideas. I was so enamored with her kindness, we went for the gusto! For the time and effort she puts into designing a site she's worth more than what she charges. As you go along in the process, if you don't like a font or color or you have your own ideas to incorporate, she is more than happy to make a change and to let you know what you can or can't do.

If you're happy with the way your blog/site looks, but need a bit of sprucing up or that extra zing, Crissy can do that also. How awesome is that? Need a Signature, a post divider, personal button with html grab box, or a scrolling button widget? She'll do it for a minimal charge. But, I kid you not, once you go to Crissy's site and see how affordable she is for what she puts into it, you may want a total revamp. :)

I also had another idea to throw out there. Have you started thinking about Christmas gifts either for yourself or for the person who has everything? What about a new blog design? That's what I was going to ask for Christmas, but since connecting with Crissy there didn't seem to be a reason to wait! How awesome would a new blog design be for a present? Just something to put in your brain files!

I would like to take this moment to give my thanks to Crissy. She has been a blessing to me since I contacted her less than a week ago. I also want everyone to know that this post was not requested by Crissy. As she finished my new design, I just knew I wanted to let everyone know what she can do! Check her out. You won't be disappointed!


Thanks Crissy!

Thank you so much to everyone who has come to see my new design. It was so great to work with Crissy! From beginning to end, this took 5 days. Can you believe it? Of course, depending on life there's no guarantee how long her next design would take.

Thanks for visiting!!
