free blog makeover {a giveaway}

Well, I hadn't initially planned to update Clover & Violet so soon...but while I was surfing the web I found a great tutorial here...and I had to try it! But I needed a compatible header first, and the next thing I knew, I spent most of Saturday designing new graphics.  But, I think it was worth it, and I love the new look!

Now, for the fun would you like a blog makeover?  Yep!  I'm going to give away a free makeover, just leave a comment to tell me why your blog needs a new look.  And, for an extra entry, let me know that you're a follower {please leave a second comment for a second entry}.  Giveaway closes Thursday, February 2nd, and the winner will be announced shortly after that!

First Custom Blog

Here's the blog design I did for my bloggy friend Kathy.  She's been blogging for a while, and I actually found her blog through a cloth diaper chat.  It's a personal blog, so I'm not giving the link here, but she just had her second baby girl, so I thought a blog makeover would be a great gift!  She chose the pink and navy, and said she loved Damask...I took it from there!  What fun.

Design Stats:

Template: Picture Window
Fonts: Vladimir Script & Georgia
Colors: Navy (#2b3856), Light Navy (#5e5a80), & Pink (#faafba)
Graphics: Ornate Wallpaper by Insurrectionx & Layered Tag Template by Delicious Scraps

Up next, a new header for Clover & Violet!

norah's photoshoot.

My very first attempt at newborn photos with my sweet girl Norah. Her quilts were handmade by me and my mom, and her dress by my mom. These are a few of my favorites!

I'm not bored. I promise. In fact, I probably have more on my to-do list than I should. If you've ventured over here from the blog I share with my mom, Clover & Violet, you may be wondering why I'm starting a new blog...well, it's pretty simple actually. Clover & Violet is so focused on stitching, quilting, and all sorts of textile love, but I have so many more things to write about. So, instead of diversifying a perfectly good blog, I've decided just to start another one {at this point you might think I'm crazy...I probably am...}. So, instead of just rambling, here are some of the adventures you'll find here:

click. - blog and graphic design

snap. - photography of all sorts

swoosh. - my drawing and painting endeavors {okay, I don't paint yet, but I know there are watercolor pencils calling my name...}

laugh. - whatever else I feel like adding

So, join me on this new adventure.  It won't be taking the place of Clover & Violet, and it probably won't be as regular, but it just might be interesting fun!
