Big News...

Well, I might be a little crazy, but I have some big news.

I've decided to start my own little business!  Yay!

I have been throwing the idea around to start a blog design business for a while now.  I finally got up enough nerve to go for it!  I've been designing (and re-designing) my own blog for the last several years, and have learned a ton about blogger in the process. About a year ago, the idea came to me (I think it was my mom actually...maybe Dan???) that I could totally do this as a business.  I initially brushed it off, but over the last few months I've really gotten serious about it.  This summer I started asking friends (and cousins) if I could give their blogs a little free makeover to build up a portfolio. It was excellent practice!

A few weeks ago, one of my favorite bloggers MaryAnn over at Cherish Everyday posted about wanting a new blog makeover and was looking for suggestions for a designer.  I thought...what do I have to loose?  I sent her an email telling her that I would love to help her out (even if I wasn't a legitimate designer, I had no site, no portfolio, but I was just willing to give it a shot.)  For some crazy reason, she agreed??? After some emails, some phone calls, and lots of ideas bouncing back and forth...we came up with this:

I think it turned out great!  MaryAnn was very happy with the results, so I would say it was a success!

So...if you are interested in spicing up your blog, head on over to my new site and look around!  I'm going to provide a wide range of services from full custom blog design, to just a new header, or side bar tabs.

I'm super excited about this new adventure.  It will require some serious focus around this house and some mandatory afternoon rest time for all residents under 4 so I can get some work done.  Wish me luck!!!!!
