I am not taking any new clients at this time. Repeat clients may contact me for updates. Please note that updates are not free!!

If you are looking for a new design, I suggest you check out Etsy. There are 100s of affordable customized designs. Most offer installation for a nominal charge.

From China to Carolina

Ann contacted me after seeing her friend Donna's new blog design. She is also adopting from China and wanted a cute new look for her blog to match her daughter's room. She said this turned out looking exactly like the decor.

CBD offers Posting Services

Did you know that I offer posting services here at Custom Blog Designs? The cost is $3 a post. (limit of 5 photos per post, $1 more if I have to resize photos) This service is perfect for people traveling to countries (like China) that block blogger. Yes, you can just email post directly to blogger, but some people need more help than that. If you are interested in this service, please contact me so we can discuss the details!

Minivanning It!

Allison is a repeat client who came back for a makeover of her new adoption blog. She had a tall challenge with wanting me to combine a slight hippie theme, travel, babies and lots of color! Here is her animated header.

Sensibly Sassy Sarah

To celebrate her 3rd anniversary of blogging Sarah decided to get a new blog design. Don't you just love her little bulldog? She had that created by a graphic artist and I was thrilled to be able to use him in her design.She got a matching Twitter page too.

Recent Work

I've been so busy with a challenging design that I have forgotten to post. I feel like I haven't accomplished a lot since returning to work this month, but I look at my client list and see that I have done quite a lot. I had many returning clients ask for adjustments to their blogs. I've done things like adding a sidebar, make some matching graphics, and header changes. Nothing that I really need to show you.

I did make 2 new headers for Wendy which she installed on her Wordpress blogs.Lorene's Spatini blog is done too!

A Blessing from Tallahassee

Donna K. paid to jumped to the top of my design queue since she's leaving next week to adopt from China and wanted a pretty new look for her blog. We are both happy with the results!

Custom Blog Designs is back!

I am resuming work today. The wait list is long so it's going to take me several weeks to get through it all. I've started out by doing several small adjustments for repeat clients, then I plan on going down the wait list in order. If I don't hear from someone right away after individual contact, I will skip ahead. You can see the wait list/design queue over on my middle sidebar to get an idea of how long the wait is. (scroll down below Followers) I am usually able to complete 4-6 makeovers a week depending on which packages are picked and how quickly emails are returned. Simple adjustments and things like blog buttons are done sooner.

In the meantime you can review the changes I've made to my services: http://cbd-services.blogspot.com/ I've removed a few makeover packages and added some others. I will be adding Wordpress and Multi-Site packages SOON! I've also updated my FAQ (frequently asked questions).

Thanks for your patience. I will try to get through the wait list and respond to emails as soon as possible. My family's schedule is pretty light over the next few weeks, so hopefully I can get a lot done.
