Where did I get my blog design, you ask?

I got it from a total sweetheart of a woman named Staci, over at Blogalicious Designs.

I owe this girl. I owe her so much that I was almost tempted to name my first born after her. But since my "first born naming" days were over 34 years ago and I don't even think she was born 34 years ago, she'll just have to be happy with me naming a puppy after her or something. Or shamelessly plugging her design site and praising her virtues.

See, I knew what I didn't want when it came to my blog design, but I didn't have a clue as what I did want, either. I first went with a standard template, but it wasn't what I wanted. I tried other templates, and I still couldn't get what I wanted. I tweaked here, I tweaked there, and still... Nothing... Nada... Zilch.

I tried so hard to do it myself, that I was giving myself headaches and ulcers... but no matter what I did, or how hard I tried, I just couldn't get "it"... you know what I mean? I wanted a specific "yeah, that's IT!" blog design - and in the end, Staci gave it to me. Almost instantly!
Bless her sweet little pea-pickin' heart!

I'm still totally in awe of those women who can cook and sew and decorate and reupholster furniture and home-school and birth calves and castrate bulls and teach dance or photography in their spare time... and still manage to find the time and the talent to come up with a gorgeous and appealing blog design - all on their own.

All I know is... I'm just not one of 'em.

Hi ya - Tatersmama. I'm glad that you are so happy with your background! Heard anymore rumors on Costco? I keep having nightmares about running out of Crisco!

Sherri said...

funny how some people know what you want before you do huh? I wish I was that talented. I have never birthed calves or taugh dance or photography. Cassie) said...

Your design is one of my favorites. Unfortunately blog design is also not my forte, which is why mine is simply white.

Katherine Aucoin said...

I know nothing about blog design and rolled the dice when I picked someone to do mine...kept my fingers crossed they would do a decent job.

I like your design, it's bright and catchy!
