Before & After Blog Makeover!!!

I was very fortunate to have won a blog makeover from WAHMaholic last month. Many of you may have noticed my many blog changes throughout the months. I was never happy with my own designs and I am so excited to have my new look.

Kaye (WAHMaholic) was very patient with me. I am very picky and had an idea in mind of what I wanted my layout to look like. She was very professional and I am so grateful for all of the hard work and time she put into my new design.

Here is my before

And, of course, if you are reading this, you see my after. :) Kaye designs both Blogger and Wordpress designs and her rates are far beyond reasonable. If you are happy with your current layout, but are looking for small changes such as a custom badge/button, header, signatures or more - she accepts a small fee for those add-ons/ individual items. She is also the fabulous designer behind the Follow Me Back Tuesday and Fit For Fall badges.

I know Kaye was up late working on my design. I was on this morning at 2:30am when I saw her making changes. There are still a few kinks that need to be adjusted. My “Giveaways” link on my navigation bar isn’t showing the drop down links, Previous Giveaways, Giveaway Winners, Giveaway Linky. This should be adjusted soon. In the meantime, you may click on the links below if you wish to access those pages.

I am also waiting to find out if I can widen my post area. It’s just a tad smaller than before which has caused all of my pictures to become unaligned. If you notice any anything else, please let me know. I am still working on moving a few things around to make navigation easier. If you have any suggestions, or comments, I would love to hear them!

Thank you Kaye for my amazing new design…and for putting up with me!

  1. Love the new look!! The colors are great, and the banner is very cute! It does look like it's off centered though....did you already know about that one? Maybe it's just my computer, I have a wide screen monitor, but it looks like it's moved to the right of the screen!

    Overall though....it's FAB!!

  2. Thanks for the compliments and suggestions! Is the header off? I have a widescreen too, but it looks centered from my view. I know the bottom widgets are off though. :(

  9. I was always impressed with the old look (you're too hard on yourself!), but I love the new look as well. Everything looks great to me and I notice what you mean about needing more room for the post side of things. Fabulous work.

    I've been wanting to do a blog re-design, but haven't wrapped my mind around the particulars of exactly what I want. Good luck getting the kinks out.

  10. I also love your new banner, and it must be just me, but it is off-center. In fact, the nav buttons above the banner are sitting off by themselves. I'm using IE8, so maybe it's my browser. LOL
