Ok everyone I'm sure most of you have noticed the new design and layout. After sharing the two I found a few weeks ago and looking around, I decided it was time to get my own look. I wanted a layout that was all mine (both of the two options before were at other blogs). After looking at several blog designers for one I felt created designs closest to my style I picked Custom Blog Designs. She was fantastic! I got on the waiting list and within a few days she was ready for me. We emailed back and forth a ton. I didn't like any of the digital kits with owl - they weren't my style - so we were working with stock images. When I saw the image with my header I was in love! It was colorful but not overly so. It was cute but not little kiddish. It was perfect. And it was even more perfect when I found the two owls winking at each other to use as well. Within just a few days, Diana had the whole thing ready to upload. It couldn't have gone better!
I just love my new look, and I hope you do to. I've been looking at it trying to figure out what part I like the most, but I can't! Having a navigation bar now is great though. I'll be working on making those really useful especially "For the Guys" and "Reviews". I even have a button now (hint hint). If you are looking for a new blog design I suggest you check out Diana at Custom Blog Designs.
