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.

Twitter Add-On

Kate, who got this blog makeover from me in September, just came back for this matching Twitter background.

Teach It With Class

I am all of a sudden very busy with blog orders for teachers. Many have Teachers Pay Teachers shops that they want to promote. Having a custom looks goes a long way with generating traffic. I just completed a fun design for Randi of Teach It With Class.

Thinking Out Loud

Jana is a teacher who saw Cindy's new makeover and liked it, so she contacted me for a custom look for her blog. The digital kit she picked was so much fun to design with! Cindy got a referral coupon for sending Jana my way!

Love Those Kinders!

Cindy is a teacher who just launched her new blog. She had me create a cute, bright design for it. After I started her design we figured out that we have a mutual friend IRL, but she found me via an online friend whose blog I designed. Stacy got a $5 referral coupon for referring Cindy.

Security 1st: Backing Up Your Blog Template

It's the first of the month which means it's time for my Security 1st feature. This month we are focusing on backing up your template.

I've had a few people ask me what they can do to make sure they don't lose their awesome blog design. It's a great idea to back up your blog template. Here are the steps.
1- At blogger dashboard click on Layout.
2- Then click on Edit HTML
X- Make sure you don't Pick New Template. If you do, and then actually pick a new template the design that you have will disappear!

Then the following page will come up.
1- Click on Download Full Template and download the template. It will be named something like template-282235459.xml. You can rename it, but don't alter the extension. I like to rename mine something like CDBtemplate-21509.xml
X- Don't mess with the code at all!

If you are using the updated Blogger interface it looks like this.

Happy New Year
