I feel you, because this describes me exactly! But thankfully, I figured out this blog design thing with very little work, money, and time.
How did I do it, you ask?
Eve from Eve's Garden of Designs did it.
You may have noticed that the blog changed a bit over the past two weeks or so, but I didn't want to feature Eve until she finished her magic, so I could fully brag on her work. And since she completed it, this post must come out with trumpets!
I first got to know Eve through her blog, Eve of Womanhood, and I loved to read her authentic posts that helped me to see life more clearly, complemented by her beautiful pictures which captured moments rather than poses. When she announced that her design shop held a month long sale in April I toyed with the idea that I would buy her custom design. I thought "maybe I can just do this myself." Or "what if it's not exactly what I want?" But I didn't really believe those thoughts, so I purchased the design, and Eve and I started communicating on what I wanted my blog to look like.
Let me tell you that her process is great! She really tried to understand my vision, and we emailed countless times throughout the process. I made a mood board on Pinterest, linked her up to other blogs I liked, and more. And then she designed this lovely blog! She designed and installed the header, layout, and social media icons, as well as a favicon and button!
If you want to spruce your blog up for a great price and make a friend in the process, please go to Eve's shop! She also has pretty pre-made templates that are easy and inexpensive as well. I never regretted buying her custom template and encourage all who read this to check her out!
Sorry for ranting, but as you can tell, I love how my blog looks now! Many more posts coming up, including a feature on my graduation party and how you throw the best party ever! Here's a pic of the decor. You won't want to miss these next few posts!
Have a lovely week, and comment below your tricks for blog design!
