Oh Bright Star

I was contacted to do a layout for Oh Bright Star. She wanted a design based on the beautiful poem Bright Star by John Keats. The background reminds me of twinkling stars. I also used the other elements to give it a vintage and classic feel. And as always, I think I have a new favorite layout....

All About Elijah

I just completed a design for Jodie from All About Elijah. She has an amazing blog with a amazing story. She lost one of her twins to Spina Bifida in 2009, but has used his story in an inspiring way. But really it is not my story to tell, and I couldn't do it justice. So make sure you go and read it for yourself.

Jodie contacted me a few days ago and wanted a blog makeover in red, black, and white (they are precious in his sight LOL). This is my first design using pictures. But she sent me these two adorable pictures (aren't the sock monkeys to die for). I was nervous about using pictures for the first time, but I really love how it turned out. It may be my all time-favorite blog design so far, but I think I say that all the time. So lets just say it is my current favorite. Until the next one comes around.

Tk's Bowtique

I just finished up a design for a wonderful client Tara from Tk's Bowtique who found me on Etsy. She has a ribbon and bows business, and she is getting her blog ready for an upcoming neighborhood bizarre (doesn't that sound fun?). We have a similar design aesthetic and she loves girly and colorful too. So I got to bring back the pink (with the green)! 

I used some ribbons and flowers to give it a crafty look, and just thought the butterflies would be a nice touch. I created her post divider on my own , as oposed to just finding a matching divider. And I love it. I also made little pink buttons for her navigation bar.

Be sure to go and check out Tara's blog!
