I have no idea how to make fancy banners, icons and other such things. I wish I did as I have so many ideas of what I'd like to do with them but wouldn't know where to start.
In my quest of looking for great banners I came across flybirdflydesigns and requested custom orders. Its always brilliant waiting so anxiously to see what she comes up with and so far I've always had such positive praise on my blogs because the banners are just so uplifting. For someone who always used to change their layouts, I find I don't want to as it just looks fresh and rewarding each time.... maybe its just me!
flybirdflydesigns is really friendly as she keeps you up to date with whats going on. Its only this time with my Strawberries and Buttercups banner did things take a little longer because there was a slight mix up and then I wanted her to recreate a different banner to what she did make even though I really loved the one she made. So now I have a banner, reading rating which you can see used on all my book reviews and a profile image.
Lastly have you noticed I found my burstofbubbles banner. I searched high and low for this banner and did not find it which is why I decided it was time for a new blog but I've really been missing it despite this blog taking off nicely. Well last night I was moving things around in my inbox into folders and tada, there were all my banners, profile pictures, buttons and what not... oh how irritating but wonderful too as I took my blog out of being deleted and added the banner back. After lots of thinking I've decided to have a third blog, oh my! I've no idea how I will cope with that yet but I decided it was time to separate my projects from this blog as most of my projects require a daly posting but are stuck to only being posted on a Friday and then things end up so photo heavy that it won't load properly. I hope to do a project a month so keep your fingers crossed that I do that and if you see any wonderful projects that I can try let me know.
