Don't panic! You haven't clicked on the wrong link.
This is Amanda, and you're checking out my new look here at Serenity Now!
I hope you like it. We played with all kinds of backgrounds and fonts, and I think that this one still seems like me.
My favorite thing? The navigation bar under the new banner. If you're new here, you can fish around up there to find out about the blog, a little about me, and more.
It was time for someone to come in and clean up the clutter here. Nate Berkus and Ty Pennington refused to pick up the phone when I called (or answer emails. or Tweets. or texts.), so I had to find someone to help me.
I did a lot of research over several months, looking for a blog design team that works with clients to create custom looks that are still affordable.
Enter Designer Blogs.
Erin, Amy, and Lauren work together to fashion delightfully eye catching blog designs. I was skeptical when I saw their Price List because everything seemed so reasonable for premades and custom designs, and then I was blown away by the colorful Portfolio they have displayed. That sealed the deal for me.
Placing an order and payment was a breeze, and Lauren was easy to work with. Once I told her about the look I was going for, she humored my every whim and cheerfully reworked the design until I was happy. I really can't say enough good things about working with them!
To celebrate the launch of my new look, Designer Blogs is giving away a Custom Blog Button with share code to one lucky reader!
If you already have a button, consider thinking up a new party you can host on your blog, and have one of the Designer Blogs girls create a button for that.
To enter, please visit the Portfolio over at the Designer Blogs site and leave me a comment here telling me which design is your favorite. (sorry, mine doesn't count, haha!) I think you'll be pleased with what you see. The blog button portfolio page is great!
The Giveaway will stay open until Thursday, February 11th, 5 pm (ET). I'll announce the winner on Friday.
If you decide to place an order with Designer Blogs, please be sure to let them know I referred you.
I hope you like the new place...same content, same blogger, just a little less sidebar clutter, and more information above.
Coming up tonight: Decorating Dilemmas! Read about the party here or check out the last party here to see how it worked. Hope to see you here!
