a new look (thanks to carolyn v)!!!

11.11.2010

Blueprint Bliss has been in need of a blog makover for awhile. But I didn't really know what to do. And then a few weeks ago I hit a button and deleted my layout and couldn't get it back. So what better time for a makeover?

I read lots and lots of design blogs... but often find myself blog hopping to other subjects. One of those is P is for Party. Carolyn designed it and I loved the look of it- so I knew she and I would work well together.I could sing Carolyn V.'s praises all.day.long. I just LOVE everything that she did for me and my blog.

She is from Texas but is currently living in Austria while her husband works on his post doctorate. She found herself unemployed {due to the fact that she doesn't speak German} so she started designing blog layouts. You can see some of her blog designs and pricing here.

Here is what Carolyn has to say:

I work hard to make each blog design fit and accurately represent the blog and blogger. This is not a "slap on a sweet font in a standard frame'' kind of operation. With a knack for clean and up-to-date designs, I keep in mind basic design principles to improve the readability and functionality, as well as the aesthetics, of your blog.

I truly enjoy doing this. What started out as a hobby in my unemployed, German learning, Schnitzel-eating early Austrian days has turned into a small, but sweet little venture.

If you are in need of a design makeover--- I encourage to use Carolyn. Super easy to work with and very affordable! Carolyn.... thank you, thank you.

i have been reading your blog for awhile now, but i will admit, i am not a commenter. today i had to comment though because i was happily surprised when i saw the title of your post. i thought, "wait, is that carolyn v... my carolyn v... my sister... why didn't she tell me she was doing a real design blog?" although i am biased, i do think carolyn has a great sense of style (and humor) and will truly bend over backwards to make your blog look exactly how you want it. i am glad you are happy with the new layout!

Love your blog. I found you through Bonnie (Caroline Postcard) - we went to high school together. Last night I spent an hour bookmarking images from your blog. We just bought a new house and I am starting an idea file for when we can afford to actually do something to it. I knew your blog would be the easiest for me to find tons of images - love your taste!
