It’s pretty obvious if you are around here much that I had a design change, but I wanted to take a moment to share a little more about it.
Things have changed so much over the course of my first year blogging. When I started this blog I was really unprepared, but one of the things I learned quickly was that you need a good header image, something to set you apart. In my first month I worked very hard trying to come up with something. I went through about 4 different header changes. I searched and searched for just the right picture, but never found that perfect one for Life After Laundry.
Finally, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I dyed some wooden clothespins, used my mother-in-laws clothes line and took the picture that has been my header for most of the year. I was so proud of that picture, I just beamed when I got it loaded onto my blog. I called everyone late that night, so they could log on and see my new look.
It is amazing how your preferences change as you grow. A couple months ago if you asked my how I felt about that picture I wouldn’t have had such nice things to say. It was definitely time for a change.
Although, I was tired of that picture, I couldn’t let go of the idea of the clothes pins and clothes line. I’m very thankful for Kayla from Sweet Anne Design for working with me to incorporate them into my new design. She is so patient, and a wonderful graphic designer. It was a joy working with her. There was no stress to the process, I was never left wondering what was going on. She was always very timely about responding back and keeping me updated. I could not have asked for a better experience with my blog redesign, and would recommend her to anyone for your graphic design needs.
If you like her work, be sure to check out her blog, Say Not Sweet Anne. I actually use her Blog Planner printable, and it has been an amazing resource for helping me stay organized. She just came out with a Student Planner that would be a great gift for any grad! Be sure to stop by and “like” her Facebook Page, so you can get her free pintables for yourself.
