I Think I've Found My Happy Place ....

Not long ago, I found a blog design site through a blog giveaway. Now, I have to tell you -- as a general rule, I don't tend to enter giveaways. There're usually lots of hoops to jump through, and the odds of winning anything are not good, but as you may have noticed -- my blog was in need of serious help, so I thought that I'd stop by the sponsoring site and dream.



Is that not the cutest bee that you've ever seen? I loved her site! Cute enough, but not too cutesy or cluttered. I left a comment in response to her post about the giveaway and figured that was probably the end of things.

Surprise!

Not long after I visited her site, Kassiah from the Creative B emailed me and said that I'd won a blog makeover. Being blog design illiterate, I had no clue what that possibly entailed. I tried not to ask for too much, because A) I figured a free blog design would mean just the basics, and B) I had never really tried to narrow down what I wanted -- I just knew what I liked when I saw it. I did ask for a button all my own. (I know ... I'm a nerd, but I've REALLY wanted my own blog button -- something that was me in a little box ... )

Kassiah was AMAZING! She totally went above and beyond what I expected. She put a lot of effort into getting to know me and my blog. She took the time to get a feel for my personality, etc. She knew what questions to ask to get me to narrow down my super-eclectic tastes -- which is good, 'cause I was pretty well clueless.  

In putting together my new blog design, Kassiah went all out! I don't think there is anything that was overlooked. She helped me figure out what elements I wanted. From top to bottom, and page to page, my blog doesn't just sound like me anymore -- it looks like me. Slightly bookish, a little eclectic, and just a punch of color. The fonts are so fun, and my posts have a signature. (A button AND a signature?!? Seriously ... blogging nerd HEAVEN!)

I know that I've raved just a bit, but I think that I've found my happy place. :) At any rate, if you have a minute or two, head on over to The Creative B. She does great work!
