It's new blog design day at Cleveland's a Plum!

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Notice anything new around here?

Like, perhaps, a new blog design?!?

It only took approximately one full year to get this design launched. No joke.

I first emailed Ashley of Little Leaf Design on January 24, 2011 (yup, almost a full year ago) inquiring about a new design. Let it be stated for the record though it was ALL on me.

I'm pretty much the worst client. And I should know better considering I work on the account side of a marketing firm and know what it feels like for a client to go mute. The good thing is I also know you can always buy more design rounds for when you decided to start over - whoops.

Thank goodness Ashley is the most patient lady I know because my mind changes approximately ever 5 minutes.

She's also a good designer and a wiz with the design install so if you're looking to spice up your design don't hesitate to reach out to Ashley at Little Leaf!

I'm super happy with the change, it's a lot cleaner than it was before and a whole lot less pink. I still have some things to work on, like my "about", "highlights" and "contact" page up in the navigation but it's a start, right?

Happy Sunday, kids!

  9. Awww, I adore Ashley! Our babies are only a month apart (and I'm always reading her blog for parenting ideas!). So long as you're a happy client, it doesn't matter how long YOU took to redesign your blog. I think it looks fabulous!
