She showed me a few blogs that she liked and said she liked the yellow/gray color combo (perfect, because that's my favorite right now too), and I got to designing. Amy was so awesome and easy to work with. I love love love how the blog turned out, and I'd love to continue this kind of work.
Since I'm still fairly new at this, I'd like to offer you a super discounted design rate of $10 - that includes a new banner, background, layout, and some custom html if needed. I'll work with you throughout the process (about one week) so we can make sure the design is something you'll be happy with. This does not include any custom illustrations and is only available for blogs on blogger.com (I'm still practicing on Wordpress, so I will do it one day, just not yet). AND this rate is only available to the first 4 people who email me at wattlebirddesigns (at) gmail (dot) com. So excited to work with you!
***UPDATE: Yes, the four $10 spots for this month are all taken (and then some!) I will be creating a portfolio site once I am done with the current design projects, and will have regular design rates and different options. If you would like to reserve a spot in the coming months, you can feel free to email me and I will talk with you about options and rates (A full blog design won't be $10 - sorry!). I look forward to hearing from you!
