It’s that time of year again – time for resolutions, renewed inspiration, and motivation. Time to start anew with a fresh clean slate. Time for change…specifically, a makeover, blog style.
I loved my blog design last year, but as it got more cluttered with sponsors and featured badges I switched back to a 2-column format and moved a lot of the buttons to their very own page. It made things a lot easier to read, but suddenly my blog looked pretty drab with all those colors missing. So, for 2012 I decided to add a little bit of color (and by “little bit” I clearly mean “a ginormous amount”).
I purchased a pre-made banner and button from Sara Rubendall, and I LOVE it! Sara’s designs are super cute and way more budget friendly than getting another custom makeover, though the pre-made format ensures that I’m not the only blog out there in Blogland that has this same header layout. I’m not worried. Then I googled a few tutorials on how to finish my blog makeover by myself, and I added the new yellow background made from Print Candee digital paper, some new fonts and new colors and played around for awhile. I still have a few minor changes to make, but I’m pretty happy with it…and who wouldn’t be happy with all that colorful cheer around!
What do you think? Do you like it? Hope you’re having a fantastic start to 2012!
