Can't Wait! Can't Wait!

Sorry about no posts for the last few days, but I have to admit that I've been a little distracted. You see, for sometime I have wanted to get my blog template updated and personalized, but I have had the worst time finding anyone who was willing and eager to help. I'm talking about people that I have been willing to pay for their service. Month after month I would reconfigure and revamp my blog at the homeschoolblogger, but it always left me wanting more. I don't have photoshop so I couldnt make my own header, and all that I am capable of is putting on a few things here and there. Admittedly, sometimes I would hit the mark, but then everyone would complain that my blog template was wonky and they couldn't read it. Obviously, I didnt see it that way on MY computer, or I wouldn't have left it, but good friends would say, "What is the deal with your blog?" I would say, "What? Don't you like it?" The response I would get would be, "Ummmm....I can't even read it!" So, of course, that was a bit of a turn off for me, and my desire to redecorate took a backseat, until I could call in an expert.

So I went to Splat Designs, and Lindsay just ran with it! At first, I wrote her a quick letter stating what I wanted, and even picked out the pic I wanted for my header. I expected, if I was lucky, to hear back from her in a week or two. But I think an hour may have gone by, and all of a sudden she was ready to hit the pavement. All along the way she has been awesome, upbeat, and she really heard me when I told her what I wanted. So that's what's been going on for me in blogland. Nevermind the posts, let get this place decorated!!!

New template will be up and running soooon! So stay tuned!! I can't wait!

I would've recommended my designer (BlogTogs) but she's no longer doing designs *sniff*

I'm heading to Linda's page now to check out her work!
