~Looking for a New Look~

Happy Monday !
Guess what happened to me ? I was trying to re-design my blog all by myself...and I must tell you I am not very good at blog design.
I had my blog designed by a gal who is no longer designing, so I thought I could try and read tutorials and change things up all by my little old self...soooo wrong was I...
I deleted all the blogs I had on my side bar. I know they are listed on my dashboard but I was trying to list them under a header with a roll up..boy did I mess up then I deleted a title under my header.
So this leads me to my all important question, can anyone recommend a blog designer they have used, my little blog needs a new look. I would love to hear from you maybe you are a blog designer and would like to work with me on giving this little old blog a face lift.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I love the present look of your blog Elizabeth! How did you get the falling hearts? I love them. And Gary is adorable as your Superman too by the way. I just love all the red in your blog!

Have a lovely week ~

Dearest Elizabeth and Gary,

Oh my, those things are often a pain in the neck! Guess a good blog designer is: http://poshonpalm.blogspot.com/
Susie did also the blog for Celia from Falling Off A High-Heeled Life: http://attitudeivlife.blogspot.com/
Love to you,

Your blog is exquisite and you KNOW I mean that, sugar! Don't hire a designer; you can do what you want. Truly, why don't you just start logging them back in from your profile page? Or you can just put them in a Pages up at the top if you want. I think it'd be easiest for you to just start putting them back on your side roll by copying and pasting from the profile page though.

So sorry to hear this, Elizabeth, I don't know of anybody. How did you get the hearts that are raining down? I like that.
Hugs, Cindy

I love the falling hearts!! If you do a blog roll it gives the option of adding from your following list. Then you could move that whole gadget wherever you want it. But that is the extent of my knowledge!

I have not used one, so I have no one to recommend. But I have always loved your blog.

p.s. come visit my blog....I started doing a video home tour a few days ago. You need to go back a few posts to catch up.

Like everyone else, I love the look of your blog and the falling hearts are cute. Boy, my blog really needs a facelift and I don't know where to go either. Hope you get some good suggestions. I will check back.

I often feel as you do that I could use some help. However, I have always enjoyed visiting your beautiful blog and I think it looks fine today. Whose blog look do you really enjoy? Look for those headers that remain static...that's a good indication that the blog look was created by a designer...and contact that person!

Oh my gosh, if you need someone to design graphics you MUST visit Keren at Free Pretty Things For You. She is absolutely the best, and is the sweetest person in the world. You will love her!

For Sandy and Cindy,

I found the falling hearts on blogamation.com and added them as directed. The website is listed on the right hand side of my blog on top, just click it and it will take you there.
Have fun looking around its a fun website.
Big hugs, Elizabeth

Whoopsie! I used Rosie from www.HappyLovesRosie.blogspot.com and LOVE what she did to my blog! She's VERY reasonably priced too!

Good luck,

Hi Ms. Elizabeth,
The best advice I can give you my dear friend is to always, always, always save your current template in case something goes wrong you have a back up and can reload it and start all over again. I do all the designing and changes to my blog...I am a trial and error kinda gal so it takes me a while to do it...If you still need help maybe I can help. Not promising much but we can give it a try :-) Love the little falling hearts. Sending you a great big hug.

Much love,
♥Ana

Thanks for the sweet comment and congrats on your own accomplishment! I play around with my own graphics too, lots of trial and error! What I have now is from bloggers design template. At first I thought it was too limited but found if you play around and check out the advance tab there is a lot you can do to customize it. You have a great start, it's looking lovely! And love the heart theme!
