Kristen's New Look!

Kristen contacted me and asked for a blog design. She wanted something professional, pretty, but not too girly. =) She had suggested a color scheme that included red - and I jumped on that! I went for a overall gray design with bits of red here and there to give it a pro look, and incorporated swirly text and embellishments to make it prettier.

She was very patient with me and was great to work with!

And just to let everyone know, I am still taking blog design requests - I just won't be working on them until December. So, if you want a design, don't hesitate to fill out the form!!

Lauren's Header and Button

You all might remember that I did a signature for Lauren a while back. Well, she wrote to me asking for a header and button! =) I really had a lot of fun working on them for her!

Do You Like It?

Okay - I know that comments aren't working right now. =) (Just wanted to say that right off the bat) I'm working on fixing that. Other than that, do you all like the new name and design? I've added a lot of pages for you to check out - and I'd love for you all to vote on what tutorial I should write in December. Click on the "tutorials" link in the header to vote.

Well, that's all for now - I have a blog design to install! ;) Get ready for your header and button, Lauren!

A Little Change of Plans

Don't worry - I'm not changing anything big. =) I just wanted to let you all know that after completing Kristen's blog design and Lauren's header and button, I'm going to take a break from designing until December. All of you wonderful girls who are further down on the wait list - yes! I'm still going to do yours - just not as early as I had originally hoped.

My reasons? Well, the first one is school. I really need to be devoting more time to it. Second is my book. =) Writing it and doing all the necessary research for a historical-fiction novel is really a lot. My third reason is the most exciting one. (well, to me.) I will be working on re-designing this design blog - completely revamping it. I feel like my design blog should 'show off' the best of my designing abilites, and I feel that right now it doesn't. So, coming later this month, a new blog design and name!

ALSO, to reward you girls for your tremendous patience with me, I will work on at least one free background and header, AND a tutorial. When I release the new site, I will have a poll up so you all can tell me what you want to see a tutorial on...and in December I will put up the background(s) and header(s) for anyone to download!

Do realize that I am not trying to be lazy with you girls at all - in fact, if i could, I would do all your designs now. =) It really is just circumstances that I don't really have control over.

I am really excited about working on all of your designs! I have been learning so much about blog design, and I feel that taking a month to learn more will really be a benefit - I will be able to provide all of you with a more "finished" blog than I would if I did it now.

So, to end this long post (so sorry!) just know that I am looking forward to designing each and every one of your blogs, and cannot wait to get back to it in December! =) I really appreciate you all trusting me to make your blog "you," it is a big task that I am honored to have!

Thanks, Guys!

I just wanted to thank you all for your wonderful patience with me. I know things are taking longer (as I warned you they would! =)  ) and I want each of you to know that I have not forgotten about you. I decided to do NaNoWriMo this year - which means my new activity is writing! =D

I'm currently working on Kristen's blog design and I think we're almost there! Next up will be Lauren's header and blog button - so get ready, Lauren! ;)

Once again, thank you guys so much for being patient with me. Those of you who just wanted a watermark or logo - do know that I am working on yours along side of the other blog designs and will (hopefully!) be ready to send you a "first draft" in about a week.

Oh - and one more thing. "Hannah Rose Photography" and "HRP {blog designs}" are now on Facebook - go check 'em out and like them if you want!
