It all started a few weeks ago while I was working on my guest post for Attention Target Shoppers. I got to "talking" with Ginger about re-doing my blog a bit. Nothing huge, just an updated template, a unique banner and a button. Ginger also has another great blog called AdlibCorner Blog School. Wow, what a life saver, both Ginger and her blog!
First, she lead to me Our Blog Templates where I started with "The Professional Template". After that, I just tweaked it's colors.
To keep my blog design unique and "original", I did the banner and button myself. It seemed like a great idea since I have somewhat of an art background and could picture what I wanted in my head. I used watercolor pencils and a blender pen, that's it! Then, I just scanned in the design, changed it from inches to pixels, and voila! Sounds real easy, right? In all, it took me a couple of days to get my design right and figure out all the coding. But, let me mention that since I did it all myself, is was free!
One of the most important things Ginger mentioned to me is, do the blog design for yourself. I did and personally, I love it! Be sure to click here to check out my handy work. Enjoy you Sunday afternoon!
