Busy with Blog Designs

Hello everyone...I have been busy with blog re-designs.  Several bloggers have asked me to give their blogs a new look.  I enjoy designing and it gives me great pleasure when  my fellow bloggers are extremely pleased with their new look.
I thought I would do a post on some of these and share what I  have been up to.
My husband told me yesterday, he thought my  latest post.....purple and green tablescapes was stale. ha ha
I am also back at clogging...
I have always given, Infuse With Liz new looks for her blog.  She was practically my first friend from RMS.
I talked her into getting rid of Blogspot and go to .com
I have designed many headers over the past for Liz.
Liz enjoys decorating, tablescapes and gardening.
She also has  a garden blog....Sit With me in my Garden


Betty, a friend of Liz asked me to build her a blog.
I have changed her design several times. 
Betty Marie's
  Betty has  lives in a 2-story Colonial and she is always gardening, redecorating or changing something.
Betty is lucky enough to have her lovely home featured in home tours.


Barbara from Two Birdies and a B. asked me to give her blog a new look.

She emailed me during the Thanksgiving holiday.
She wanted a Christmas design for her blog.
it was ready to go the day after Thanksgiving.

After Christmas, Barbara asked me to give her
a fresh look.
Barbara enjoys many things. She also shares recipes, tablescapes.
I added the navigation menu, designed her header, added LinkWithin,  added some Tablescapes to her navigation menu.
I also set up Recipage for her and added some recipes as a guideline, as well as a signature.
The whole template was widened.

Debbie from Mountain Breaths chatted with Barbara
about her design and decided she too, was ready for a new look. 
She didn't want a background image.

 Debbie has a huge collection of MacKenzie Child.
I love her lovely treasures. 
Debbie  enjoys hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus the name, Mountain Breaths).
I also gave Debbie a widened template, custom header, signature, post divider and set up her pages.
I set up Recipage for her and also added recipes.
I then added some of her tablescapes and gave her instruction on how to add more to each tab.
I suggested to Debbie to get a domain name through Blogger
for $10.00 a year.  They automatically re-direct your blog.spot address to your new one.  in Debbie's case, her blog is now

Kitty  from Kitty's Kozy Kitchen commented on Debbie's blog,
and asked about her blog design.  Debbie gave her my contact info.
Kitty wanted a new look also.
 Kitty started her love of cooking when she was in the second grade and received her first cook book.
Since then, finding the best recipe has been a passion for Kitty.  Cooking for my family is a joy to me. The recipes that she shares through this blog can be passed on to my family and friends, for as we all know--Food=Love! 

I gave her a widened template, navigation, custom header, signature, pages for her menu and background.
I also added LinkWithin....set up her Blogroll page...
set up her recipage and added recipes.

So, now you can see how busy I am. 
I am getting ready to do a tablescape for Girls Wanna Have Fun!

Thank you for visiting and enjoy the rest of the week.
