Custom Blogger Design: The Notebook of a Product Junkie

Today, I have a fun & clean design to share with you all! When Crissy over at The Notebook of a Product Junkie came to me looking for a new design, I knew right away that it would be a fun one to work on. She had such fun colors in mind and I loved the overall focus (and name!) of her blog. I was eager to get started designing...and within weeks, we had a new design up and running!

Be sure to stop over and check it all out! While you're there, take a look at her custom "About Me" page, as well as her custom post signature (social media) linkup. Both of those features can be added on to the standard blog package!

"I found Melissa through Erin’s blog over at Living in Yellow. I knew my blog needed a redesign and I knew I wasn’t the person who was best suited to do it. I reached out to Melissa and from the first interaction I knew she was the perfect person to do it! I wanted a simple, pretty and girly look.  She took all my opinions into account and created different versions of what my perfect blog would be. Much to my many asks and changes, she was truly amazing and, have I mentioned patient? I didn’t feel rushed with my decisions and she made sure that every idea was considered and taken seriously. So Melissa, I sincerely THANK YOU from the bottom of this crazy heart! 

I had a blast designing this for you, Crissy! And I love how it turned out.Thanks for being such a great client! :)

Custom Blogger Design: Feature: Gumdrops and Gloss

I'm so excited to feature this latest redesign today! Niki, blogger over at Gumdrops & Gloss, was a absolute pleasure to work with on this project. I loved the "look" she had described in her initial questionnaire, and I was eager to start designing. She wanted a fresh, clean, and chic design to showcase her food, beauty, and style blog. I love how it turned out, and am excited to see what else she has in store on her blog in the months to come! 

Take a look at the final product below, as well as how it came to be!

"I hired Melissa for a complete custom redesign of my blog and I am absolutely thrilled with her work.  I was looking for something very simple - mostly white with muted colors, but I still wanted my blog to have some style.  Melissa was a dream to work with.  She took into account the style of my blog, my personal style, and my favorite colors and created the perfect blog design for me.  She was very thorough, detail oriented, and so very sweet and patient with me even when I changed my mind a million times!  Melissa was also very upfront about the expectations and timeline, so I never had to wonder, and she kept everything perfectly on track.  I absolutely LOVE my blog design and I would recommend Melissa to everyone I know!" -Niki (Gumdrops & Gloss)

Be sure to stop over to her blog and check it out! She's got loads of great posts full of beauty reviews & fashion tips! 

And thanks again to Niki for being such a great client! Enjoy your new design! :)



Latest Design: Real Clear Cool

This custom blog design over at Real. Clear. Cool. was a blast to work on. Jennifer, writer & blogger, was looking to start fresh with a whole new blog and a new design, after deciding to change her blog name.

What a better way to start fresh than to use fun colors with a hint of neutrals! Orange is such a vibrant color, and I love being able to use it whenever I can!

Check out the final product!

Be sure to stop over to her blog and take a look around. She writes anything from family to finance, and has tons of great reviews.
