Notice anything different???

Sunday, September 15, 2013 with 29 comments
I've been wanting a redesign pretty much since I implemented the too-cutesy polka dot theme a year or so ago...on my own.  It's cute, but it just wasn't me, even if half my wardrobe does incorporate polka dots. ;0) It took me forever to put that together because I am so not a designer.

So, when I saw that Stephanie over at Hopeless Romantics was offering up her services as a design guru, I decided to contact her.  I'd seen her work on one of my favorite blogs, and I knew that I'd finally found the designer I'd been looking for.

Stephanie was such a pleasure to work with, and even though she said it might take some time to put it together because of what I was looking for, it ended up only taking a couple of weeks...and it probably wouldn't have even taken that long if I'd kept up with my emails.  D'oh!  I gave her some somewhat specific requests and within days she had a design for me.  We only had to tweak it just a bit, and it was ready for the world to see.  And I couldn't be happier!



Look at those adorable menu icons!  And my new follow/contact buttons!  I absolutely love my redesign!  =) I hope to go back and fix some of the formatting issues on my older posts since they don't exactly mesh with this new design, but that's not really a priority at this point.

I believe Stephanie is closed to new requests as she's been inundated with them -- which just goes to show that everyone else thinks her designs are pretty fabulous, too -- but you should definitely keep her in my for a future redesign!  I could never have come up with a design this awesome on my own, and that's the truth.

  1. Awweee Thanks =) I love seeing a design come to life and blue is my favorite color!

    I am currently closed to requests while I work on the next three requests. Once I finish the next one on my list and get down to just two, I'll be reopening for blog design requests.

  18. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee the new look! I have an unhealthy obsession with stars when I was in high school and you're background is something I think I'd love to get lost to. I have to check out Stephanie when I decide to revamp my blog someday. This seriously looks awesome without it being too much.
