blog augmentation

My blog needs a little lift, ya'll!

I want a new background, new template...new everything! Trouble is, I don't know the first thing about doing any of that myself and I don't want to risk losing my archive, or my list of blogs I like to view, well...anything off of my page, really. I see lots of beautiful bloggies out there...so I'm wondering, who do I go to? What's the going rate? Anybody got any info I could use? Pretty please? With a peach on top?

I'm envisioning something pink, sassy and definitely frou-frou...

The cutest Blog on the Block.

It is free, they have a lot of pink backgrounds, and SO easy to install. Just like adding an extra widget on your sidebar. You won't loose anything on your sidebar this way, it is the easiest way to re do your blog.
Go and have a look at their website:

Have fun, and am looking forward to your new look :)

Cutest blog on the block is good...they've also got fairy tale backgrounds...

There's one designer, Hannah Cramer, who is good and cheap. I could give you her e-mail. And the girl that did my blog has free backgrounds you can download. Also, there's a lot of cheap girls on Etsy who do amazing work!

I LOVE your picture in the header though, so I'd be said to see you loose that! Hmm... I really like the Design Girl, her name is Danielle. She's put out some cute stuff!

I second The Cutest Blog on the Block or you may try Delightful Dots, too. :)

Hello~I've just strolled into your blog for my first visit...I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts.
When I started blogging a few months ago...I knew absolutly nothing about computers or blogging, let alone how to create my style. I knew I wanted a French Country look and feel. I created my own banner and background. A personal header was the easiest.
Through staging a french vignette.
There's several good options out there to choose from.
I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
Come by for a visit. Maybe it'll give you an idea in creating yours.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Hi! I just came across your blog this morning and read some of your posts. Your style reminds me so much of my own I love it! You are very creative. I love the pink stripes you did in your daughters room. I was considering doing them in my office and after seeing yours I am for sure doing it now! I will share a picture with you when it's done (I hope they come out as nice as yours!!). I just wanted to say hi and let you know I've become a follower. Take care!

I've been fiddling around with blog design - if you want, I could give it a whirl for you. I know I could easily make you a new banner and blog buttons and background. I've been actually hoping for someone to be a "guinea pig" to try stuff out on. :) If you don't mind giving me a shot at it, then I'd be happy to do it. (And I'd do it for free.)
