I mentioned back in December that this little guy was going away…
…is it strange to get attached to a logo?
I’ve had the same blog design for over 3 years because I was so attached and didn’t want to change a thing. Well, I’m finally ready for a change and this little guy will have a safe place in my archives.
First thing, a new logo…and I knew exactly who I wanted to create it.
I wanted my very own logo that I could use on anything. I wanted a logo that would be around for many years and something versatile in case I wanted to change out color schemes.
I contacted the super-talented Lara at Announced Designs …
…and I sent her an email begging her to design my new logo and lucky for me she said “yes”! Phew.
I gave Lara this color palette I found at Design Seeds…
…and she came up with many amazing designs, but this one immediately grabbed my attention, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result…
…thank you Lara!
Next, I needed a new blog design and layout.
Emily at The Blog Fairy has been my blog designer for years and has been with me from day one at Ucreate. Maybe you’ve heard of her…
…she’s my go-to gal for any changes I might need on my blog, new layouts, HTML fixes, etc. etc. I have to also say that she’s saved my hide in a couple of last-minute emergencies, too.
She’s fantastic to work with and we just “get” each other.
…thank you Emily!
What’s new with the design??
Besides the obvious color scheme change and white, crisp look…one of my very favorite new features is this easy-to-find search bar in the header…
…have you ever wondered if you saw a tutorial on Ucreate and just didn’t know where to find it?? Instead of looking around for the search gadget now it’s easily accessible in the header.
Want to grab a new button?
There will also be other buttons available soon!
HUGE thank you to my loyal readers who keep coming back everyday, and for your sweet comments and emails. I have the best inbox full of kindess and motivation daily…so THANK YOU!
