Price Reduction

Just wanted to let all of you guys know that have been contacting me that I've decided to drop my prices on my blog make-over packages. While my prices were very competitive, I still didn't feel right about charging that much (at least until I'm more established). So my basic make-over package is now $30 dollars and my elite makeover package is now $45 dollars. Thanks for your interest! B

Twitter Button Freebies!

I got the itch to design some cute, twitter buttons for you guys to use on your blogs. There is no need for you to credit me if you use these buttons. But I would love it if you commented to let me know you are going to use them! Just in case you are not sure how to use these, here are some instructions.

Right click on the button you want to use, and save the photo somewhere on your computer where you can easily find it. Go to your blogger homepage, click the design tab underneath your blog name, and then find the tab that says page elements. Click add gadget and scroll down and choose the picture gadget. Upload the picture using the "from your computer tool." Before clicking save, post your twitter homepage link into the box that says link. Save and drag the element where you want it to be on your layout. Save your changes and waalah! A cute button to advertise your twitter (You can also upload the image to photobucket and save/link it that way).

I made these using digital products from delicious scraps, everyday mom, and the shabby princess.

The Official Launch

So it is time for the official launch of Peachy Keen Design! I'm sorry to close down the option of free services because I have enjoyed it so much, and met so many fabulous people.  I realize this little business may take some time to take off, but I'm in it for the long haul. I have spent the last few days teaching myself  many new design techniques and I'm really looking forward to using them. So if you want to purchase a design or ask me a question just e-mail me!

Make sure you follow me because I have  a lot of freebies and fun things planned in the next few weeks!

Things I Said and Meant to Say

(Click on Banner to Enlarge)
Michelle contacted me after seeing the banner I did for The Date Girl Diaries. She only wanted a banner and matching button because she is teaching herself html/design and is working on her blog herself. Which I think is awesome, but I hope not too many people do that because then I wouldn't have a business! :) She asked for something simple with a lot of texture. She also told me she liked designs with damasks. So I took a blue damask background and edged it with a dark grey ribbon with a touch of gold.  Then, I used a font she suggested for her title and a complimentary subtitle font.  I really love how it turned out!  Michelle is super sweet, and has a beautiful style of writing. I highly recommend checking our her blog.

P.S.-I will stop giving free services Sunday night, so if you are interested email me now!

The Date Girl Diaries

My blogging friend Date Girl from The Date Girl Diaries contacted me about making a new banner for her word press blog. Since I'm not familiar with word press, she just told me the size of the banner she wanted and she was able to install it herself. See in a small way, I can do word press! Then we had some problems figuring out how to install it because of pixel limits and word press issues. But we got it done! Honestly, word press will be next on the list of skills I want to learn.

She is getting married soon and she wanted something that could represent her transition from being single to married. So I helped her come up with the slogan, "From Single-ish to Married-ish."  I used her old image she already had and she bought a similar wedding image. I love how the two pictures represent the old and the new. It was really fun working on a design for my blogging bff.  So go check her out and give her some love!

Lydia was my second guinea pig and took me up on my free blog design offer. Lydia loves black, green, and pink and gave me free reign over most of her design. I gave her a three-columned design. I "separated" the sidebars from the main posting area and colored them white and added borders. Also, Lydia told me she loves shoes, so I incorporated a little zebra print shoe in her signature.

I also found out that Lydia lives in the same town in Texas where all my family lives, and we even got married at the same place. It is a small world after all!

Joie of Life

Joie took me up on my offer for a free blog design, so she got to be my first project! Joie is a girl after my own heart. She loves all things girly, and her two favourite colors are pink and green. So this is what I designed for her, and she loved it. Click the image above to check out Joie's site.

P.S.-Have you gotten your free design yet? If not, e-mail me here!
