.I am thrilled beyond words with the work Brandi Hussey did for my blog, aren't you?
If you haven't visited Brandi's blog, you need to NOW. She has so much information to offer! Her color palettes are amazing, her eClass on PhotoShop Elements is terrific, and she used to make gorgeous jewelry before changing career paths. She's in my book, "Bead Soup", too! And obviously, she's super-talented in the graphic design category, too.
I absolutely LOVE the banner. I sent her a bazillion photos, and she really picked the ones that are quintessentially about me and what I love. The vintage typewriter -- my love of writing. The pink hair -- it's become an identity now. The artwork -- those are Zack's bookmarks from his shop. The beaded bracelet shows one of my lampwork beads. And finally, my shoe collection, which has spawned several blog posts and is also part of my identity. Fun hair, fun shoes, fun purses, fun jewelry. That's my style.
I REALLY love the bars to the right instead of in the header. It helped me clean up the side bar a bit and gave me room to grow. And it feels cleaner in here, too -- she must have dusted when she was working!
Please be sure to visit Brandi's blog and give her some love!
