New Blog Design

How do you like my blog's new look?  I'm sooooo excited about it.  Let me tell you how I ended up with this custom blog design.  I don't know if y'all follow Desiree's blog The 36th Avenue or not, but you should.  

The 36th Avenue

She has awesome link parties, tutorials and giveaways.  A few weeks ago she had a giveaway for a credit to Royal Daughter's Designs by Amanda.

I think I entered the giveaway using almost every possible option because I wanted that credit!!!  I had been considering a custom blog design, and I thought, "How cool would it be to get a credit for part of the design costs?!" 
When the giveaway ended, I got an email saying I had won!  I really, seriously almost cried.  I know that sounds over dramatic, but in my defense, my hormones have been out of whack lately. LOL.  Anyway, Amanda emailed me to get the process started, and from the very beginning, she was awesome!  She made sure that I was happy with the design every step of the way.  And when I had an idea or if I didn't like something, she always listened and never got angry with me.

I am very pleased with the finished product.  It is so very me, and I just couldn't get that with a regular blogger template.  I had made my previous header, and I liked it, but Amanda's is WAY better!  
So if you're thinking about a custom blog design, check out the packages that Amanda has to offer.  They're very affordable, and you will like working with Amanda.  She also has pre-made designs if you're not ready to go custom yet.
Let me know what y'all think of the new look!!!  I probably won't be posting any new tutorials this week because I have a lot going on.  But I will definitely be checking in.  Hope y'all have a great week!
