The Latest, yo.

HI!!!! 

Last night I met a blogger. Her name is Emily, and she's awesome. And you know what?! We were horrible bloggers, because we didn't get a single picture together. Oops. Ummm... just take my word for it - she is cool. And you should meet her, too - virtually

Anyway.nYou guys, I feel like I have been slammed with design work lately.

So... here's a few of my latest designs. I highly recommend checking them all out, but if you just picked one... I'd go with the first. It's amazing (I'm so humble). And involved lots of extras, which involved the coding ninja working his butt off.
There's a slideshow feature, custom signatures, and a grid of the contributors. I'm glad my husband can do cool stuff and help me out when I need it - he's awesome. That slideshow never would have happened without him. Or me going bald from ripping my hair out. 
I did a redesign of Ali's blog, and it was so fun - she wanted something fairy-tale-esque, and I think this works! If you want to have baby fever... stop by and see the design in action.
 For DB I strived to keep it classy and simple, but not girly. He wanted neutrals that would compliment his food photos rather than distract. If you need good recipes, check him out.
 For Megan's design, I wanted to put her blog title into pictures by using the words. Yeah... that made sense in my head. Anyway, she wanted purple and grey for a color scheme, and I think it turned out great - not too boring and blah, but not too overwhelmingly purple, either.  She has an adorable pup, so if you want to look at cute animals, head over there!
If you are interested in a design, stop by my design page. I am currently working on a couple of projects, but the wait shouldn't be long!

Wow! One day I will have better design & html skills! I am inspired! The intro to the food dude could not have come at a better time for my menu planning.

Thanks!

It is awesome that you have a coding wizard husband to pair up with, what a perfect team you make! I know nothing about fancy coding stuff although I'm set to take a lot of classes on it in the future, so we'll see :)

Your designs are beautiful! I've been wanting to get into design but I'm barelyyyy taking off on my own photoshop adventures so I guess the best is yet to come! Feel free to share any pointers with an eager student ;)

nice work! I actually did a couple guest posts over at A Little Etsy Love - unfortunately my Treasury Hunts (a giveaway with a twist) didn't get a lot of participation so I bowed out just as Gabe was being borned.
Bloggers nowadays - just don't like working for their free stuff anymore... ;) xo

Emily Glover said...

We WERE horrible bloggers! Oh well... I had such a fun time talking with you! I figured we'd hit it off. (:

RadiantKristen said...

You do some darn good work! I love all of the redesigns you did, especially the header for the "growing up should be fun" blog!

Deidre said...

Wow! Great design work! I love the purple and grey together in the last one, great colour combo!

If I ever pay someone to design my blog, I AM HIRING YOU. Those are two goals I have-- become a dot-com blog and have a profeshhhh make it beautiful. :)

Sara Louise said...

You know you're my go-to design gal! I might even have a little work for you in the near future (of course I do)

Sarah Kate said...

Dang, girl! You have gotten REALLY good at this. I really love the Etsy one...a lot! The one you did for the guy is great, too. I guess I never thought about guys needing blog designs. How sexist of me. :o)
