OMGoodness!! Have any of you been wanting a new blog design lately?!? Well, good luck!! The blog designers seem to be soooooo busy right now!!! Everyone has HUGE waiting lists and some have even closed up shop for now because they have soooo much to do!!!
I had a designer in mind for my blog, but after contacting them 4 times with no response-I decided that I needed to take matters into my own hands if I really wanted to get it done:)
Yep, that’s right…ME!!!!! I figured it out!!;) (Can you tell I’m proud of myself?;)
I had a vision of what I wanted my blog to look like. I wanted to keep my Little Warrior guy (Warrior is our school mascot) and keep my color scheme of oranges and blacks (school colors). So, I started searching Etsy for backgrounds and frames.
I decided on these backgrounds from SpringHillGraphics for $4.00. They have some SUPER cute stuff!
I found these cute little halloween banners that matched perfectly for $3.50 from digitalfield. If you’re looking for cute little banners like this-she has all different colors and designs:)
And lastly, I decided on this HUGE set of frames for $7.00 from WhilstDigitalStash These will definitely come in handy!
Then, I got to work creating my header, sidebar titles, buttons and signature. THEN, for the hard part….installation. I am by NO means, a super techy person, but google is AMAZING!!! I was able to find tutorials on installing EVERY SINGLE element!!!!;) I think the trickiest part is creating a blog button…so, if you’ve done that, you could definitely install any of these other elements too!;)
So, that’s it!!! I got a new blog design for under $15.00!! And, I’m pretty happy with the results! I think I’ll keep it for quite some time:) Of course there are some things that are less than perfect…so, don’t look too closely;)
What are your thoughts???
