It Doesn’t Rain But it Pours {or, “Sorry for Disappearing”}

I just dropped off the face of the earth last month, didn’t I? Sorry about that – it wasn’t planned. ;) But it happens, unfortunately – dropping off the earth, that is. Good news is that I’m back, and I’m going to do my best to stay on top of all my blogs! =D And because I’ve been gone so long, you all are going to be bombarded with freebies and lots of new blog designs for the portfolio. The freebies are up here - http://freebies.beautydesignstudios.com/2011/09/it-doesnt-rain-but-it-pours-freebie.html – and here - http://freebies.beautydesignstudios.com/2011/09/fall-background-for-blogs.html.

I loved working with all my clients these past two months – they were all wonderful to work with, and the process was fun. Be sure to check out their websites and blogs!

Holly and I are still working on putting up site content, but the design of the website is complete! It was great creating a more crafty-looking design.

Stay-At-Home Daughter was my first Wordpress design, and Ashley was so sweet and gracious with me as I worked with her on her blog design!

I re-designed the Bloom! Magazine staff blog to match the new website, and enjoyed the challenge of matching everything up. ;) Don’t forget to visit the new website, too, designed by Amanda from FarmgirlWrites.com!

It was an honor to design Emily’s blog for her – and it was fun creating the summery theme!

Ellie was so sweet and fun to work with! The designing process went very quickly – and I loved playing around with a different color palette.

It was a great honor to design CWRC’s website. Check out the site – there’s some great material up there!

They look amazing! And do you do giveaways?

Thank you, Emily! =D As of right now I'm taking a bit of a break from doing giveaways, but I'll be back to doing them in November! =D

Hi Hannah,
I just want to let you know that on your designs none of the background images are showing up(for me, at least) and neither are your newest freebie pictures. Your older freebies and background images are showing, but not the newer ones. I don't know if this is just me. I am using Firefox on an Mac. I also tried using Safari and doing this didn't change anything.

Thanks for letting me know, Emilie! I'm pretty sure that you can't see the images because Blogger now has a new photo viewer that has been applied to all new photos, like it or not. It's driving me crazy because I don't want all the photos on my blog to be viewed that way. =P So I bet that's why you can't see the images - Blogger probably hasn't worked out all the kinks yet. =P I'm hoping they'll make it optional. =D
