Do you love the new look?
I certainly do!
(There’s still some very minor tweaking that’s being done, but other than that it’s finished!)
The big, round of applause needs to go to Becca @ Jumping Jax Designs. She’s the same person who did Lboy’s birthday invites. She’s awesome you can see her portfolio here & her prices. And if you want to check out her personal blog, you should do that too! She’s pretty much awesome & has the cutest little guy ever! Go see her at The Paro Post!
I definitely lacked vision for where I wanted the design to go. I could not figure out what I wanted, even though I’ve been obsessing over a design for two months now. I didn’t for the life of me know how to translate what I wanted in my head into words so that Becca could have some direction. After all, she couldn’t do a design, if I wasn’t clear about what I wanted.
You have no idea how hard she worked to make me happy (did I mention I’m a diva?! :)–finally I came up with a few colors, a flower design that I liked, I said I wanted the header to look defined, & I picked out some fonts. I just decided that I had to relinquish control & let her do her job.
And voila! Her amazingly artistic self came up with the final design! And this is why she is the professional!
And someday when I make that glorious switch to WordPress, Becca currently can make WordPress headers & buttons! So, she will have the lovely task of working with complicated, boring me again! ha!
Have you ever heard of Better Your Blog? It’s a great site that is designed to help do exactly what it says in the title. Mommy Monologues was featured over there today because of the new design! I think this is the perfect testament of Becca’s hard work! I hope you will check that out too!
Thank you so much for your positive feedback on the design! I’m so glad you’re loving it!
But alas, I’m off to change diapers, get baby food thrown at me, & to do laundry. Unfortunately, not everything in my life can be as glam as my blog design!
