Presenting My New Blog Design!

A few weeks ago, I entered a giveaway at Far Above Rubies, a blog that I link up to when I can.  The giveaway was for a custom blog design package from ADORAbelle Designs.   With over 350 entries, I was shocked when I heard that I had won!  I was super excited because I have only done my own design on my blog so far, and while I am proud of all that I have learned about blogging, HTML, and design in general, my old design was far from professional!

I really didn't know what to expect (and honestly didn't have high expectations since I wasn't paying anything after all =) but Heather from ADORAbelle Designs was very professional, efficient, and easy to work with.  She treated me just like I was a paying customer =)  She got an idea of my style by me filling out her design form and also giving her links to blogs that I enjoy visually.  I think she did a fantastic job creating a design from the little bits of information I gave her.

If you have a blog and are looking for a new, professional look, I cannot recommend ADORAbelle Designs enough!  What do you think?  Do you like the new look?  I'm still playing around with the order of things on the sidebar, and I'm working on a new Sponsors section, but I just love the design and am having fun making it my very own =)

On the note of Sponsors....if you are interested in advertising your blog, product, business, etc. check out my new Advertise tab! 

 Happy Blogging!
