A Brand New Look

I am super, duper excited over my new AHHH-DOR-ABLE blog design!  I have dabbled with doing my own thing and trying to make the vision in my head actually happen.  Of course, that is very challenging when you have NO clue what you are doing! I have checked with several people who do blog designs, but being a newbie to this blogging world, I just couldn't bring myself to spend hundreds of dollars.  I was so excited to read Christi's blog post this week and immediately contacted her.  I cannot believe how simple and enjoyable she made this whole process for me!  If you have been feeling that your blog design is not "quite right" and just can't do what you would like, then Christi is the perfect person to contact!!!

When Cynthia contacted me about doing her new blog design, I was so excited to see her frog theme. She had a great idea, but wanted something more professional. I think this whimsical design certainly hits the mark.

Whether you're looking for a new Blogger theme, graphic elements for other web projects, or even cute printable items for your classroom, I'm here to help. At Design by Christi, I prove that creative designs and accessories don’t have to be expensive. I’d love to work with you next. What can we create together?

  7. Thanks everyone for all the positive comments. I just have to keep coming back to look to make sure it's still here and just as adorable as ever. If you are interested, you should contact Christi. She is super, SUPER reasonable on her price (you can see it on her blog) and FAST. We discussed and started Wednesday morning, and by Thursday evening it was complete. Couldn't have been any better!

  8. I love the make over! It looks great!! I'm going to contact Christi and see if she can do mine too!

    2nd Grade Rocks!
