I was lucky enough to win a blog design from Natasha of Paper Crowns through a giveaway on Little Chief Honeybee and (drum roll, please) it is finally complete!
Natasha was a dream to work with. As a newbie to blogging, I was in the dark about at lot and she was able to get my creative juices flowing to give her a feel for what I would like. I threw a ton of ideas her way (colors, shapes, sizes, time periods, you name it!) and she pulled a bit from here and there and made it into an attractive, workable template that really expresses who I am as a person. My favorite part of working with Natasha was how excited she was to be doing my design. It really made me happy to know that she was enjoying herself and was proud with what she was coming up with. My blog is now perfect for me; bold and bright while still remaining clean and orderly. It has a bit of a vintage vibe to it and also includes a few symbols that hold a lot of personal meaning to me. (Spot the arrows, rabbits, Volkswagen's?)
If any of you are considering a new template, and especially if you are considering your first professional template, I would absolutely recommend Natasha.
Also, anyone who is using my yucky old button on their pages - please grab the pretty new one on the right! If you decide to use my button on your page, please let me know so that I can thank you and put you on my favorite people list.
Thanks again, Natasha! You've made my little corner of the internet feel like home!
