I received an e-mail from Jeff, asking how I designed my Link & Win banner. Knowing that I'm a DIY kind of girl, he thought I made it myself. Well, truth is, I had it done for me. I'm not an a very artistic person and computer design programs freak me out. But I'm also a really frugal.
Luckily, I came across VC designs and she's created all the banners, logos, and buttons you see floating around with my "face" on them. And she did it relatively inexpensively. Less than $30 for my header!! Can you believe it? At first, I thought I was getting a discount. But then I checked out her updated site and realized she offers the same bottom-dollar price to everyone.
But I'm not complaining. She did a great job. She's given me all my artwork in a timely manner and accommodated all my craziness. So, Jeff, if you have design work you'd like done, check out her site.
She can create all sorts of things beyond blog work, but here's a sample of some of the things she made for me:
A shrunken version of my blog header. I wanted it green, with a blond/sassy girl, and animals .
My Link & Win Banner. You may need one if you have a weekly event. :)
My blog button. This has been the best investment ever! I use it as my avatar on forums, for comments on other blogs, and it made it possible for others to "grab my button." If you are new to blogging, get a good header and a button.
