It's time for a change..

I want to change my blog design. It's been forever since I updated the look of the blog, but I don't wanna do it again. {insert whine}. SOOOOO...I have been searching the internets for a super bloggy designer to do it for me and DANG! There are tons of options...and I am picky and indecisive.

I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a blog makeover, but I want it to look like I did. Am I a brat or what? lol

I know that there are lots of bloggy designers that use my digital scrapbook designs already. I could go with one of them. Here's the thing...I kind of want to use my designs...but I want it to look more modern than scrapbooky. KWIM? Maybe I can work it out where I can trade commercial use of my designs to a sweet bloggy designer to get a brand new spanking blog. Being that I am all frugal and all...that would be sweeet.

So, I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have a favorite blog designer?

If any Blog designers have any ideas- email me. ;)

This might sound a silly question, but why don't you do your own? There are so many tutorials out there (I have a ton on my blog, but there's loads of others too). Make a test blog and have a go - there's nothing better than the satisfaction of designing your own blog! If you do want one designing, most designers I know don't charge hundreds of dollars - you can get a decent custom one for like $50. I think mine only work out at $50, but there's hundreds of designers, check out this for a list http://beautifulblogdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/01/blog-designers.html. Hope that helps!

Take a look at her portfolio. It's amazing. It would never hurt to ask if she would be up for a trade, but her blog makeovers aren't that expensive.

Hi Michelle - Thanks so much for stopping by my blog - I really appreciate it! Love your blog, it looks like you have so many great ideas. I could use a little make-over on my blog too. I'm interested to see what other ideas people give you here.

Happy Saturday! TT and GC should totally change the name to new friend weekend because it takes me all of Friday Saturday and Sunday to get through all the sites I want to visit! Thanks for coming by my site, I have to admit I know nothing about digital scrapbooking I still do it old school. Good luck on your redesign, can't wait to see what happens!
