My new header and buttons

For those of you that are regular readers you might have noticed the new design of my blog. From the beginning I have used generic or self made headers for this blog. I was never really in love with any of it. I am no designer! I knew I wanted something different, something that more reflected me, but I really had no clue what I actually wanted. So I kept putting it off and putting it off.

So when I won a giveaway for a new header over at Brandy's Battle I was super excited. Brandy herself actually does web graphic and designs over at Stitchblade Designs. She is so talented, you really need to go check her out.

After the excitement of winning I then got really nervous. How do I describe to someone else what I wanted when I had no idea myself. I told Brandy that and she said that it would be ok. She asked me some simple things like: Tell me about you, your blog, things you like, colors you love, hate etc...she said she was really good at matching people and boy was she right.

I told her a little about myself, what my blog was about, different colors that I liked and didn't like and I even sent her links to some blogs that I like and what I liked about them. It was very quick and painless. In no time she sent me the image that she had created. I was in love. I do feel like she got everything right. She even created a matching button. I then asked her to create me an Etsy button and for a small fee she not only created the button but an Etsy banner as well, which you can see here.

So if you are ready for a change but don't really know what you want (or even if you do know what you want) go talk to Brandy over at Stichblade Designs and she will take care of you and I know you will be pleased with her work as I was.
