I personally have changed since starting this blog and I think my blog has evolved as well. When I started I was all over the place and I had an identity crisis. Now that I have been blogging 8 months I feel like I have the hang of it. Since I have grown I would like to have a new design. I was going to wait until my blog’s anniversary but that is 4 months away! I am sooooo not that patient.
I have been torn about this because I love my header. AND I HATE CHANGE. And my husband illustrated the “housewife”. But I feel like this will be a good thing for the direction my blog has gradually taken. It is one of those “better in the long run” kind of decisions.
I thought it might be fun to see what my readers come up with for my new header. You don’t need to be a professional blog designer. Anyone who knows how can join in. If you have friends who do you can invite them to join in as well. The more the merrier :)
Here is the inspiration that I want you to kind of go off of. I LOVE these colors. They make me happy :) And I love the print too.
*I would love to see what you come up with using this as inspiration. I want it to be simple and clean. But not too simple, if you know what I mean. I want it to look professional but still bright and fun.
*My current header is 980 x 450. I kind of like that size but I am open to something else.
* The image must be a png, jpeg, or jpg
* If I choose your design you must agree to sign over the right of the artwork and design to me.
*The artwork must be your own design
*If you are feeling super inspired and you make more than one design I will gladly accept multiple design from you :)
*I will leave this open until June 6th.
*When you have your completed header design(s) please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Now I am sure you are all wondering “What the heck is in it for me????” At least that is what I would be thinking. Well, besides the fact that you will get to visit my site and see your lovely design everyday, I will offer the winning designer 6 MONTHS OF ADVERTISING ON MY SIDE BAR plus A WRITE UP ABOUT YOU AND YOUR SITE. You will also get to see the words “This blog was designed by __________” at the bottom of my blog forever and ever. Awww…..
And if you live close I just might make you some cookies :)
Thank you in advance to any of you who choose to do this. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!!!!!!!! And feel free to spread the word to anyone you think might be interested.
Here are the colors from the pictures above. You can use these exact colors or different shades. Or you can totally surprise me :)
