Can you guess what our Met Monday transformation is this week??
It's our brand new freshly-squeezed-by-Katie blog design!! Weeehooo!!!
When Maria at Colour Me Happy debuted her new header a couple of months ago, I instantly fell in love with it...
I wanted a sexy new header too!! Victoria wasn't quite as excited about being caricaturized (which I'm sure isn't a word) as I was, but she eventually agreed to go along with it. I'm sure it had nothing to do with my smooth persuasive abilities ;-)
Katie at Lemon Cherry Blogs was our girl – she designed Maria's header, and we knew she would come up with something great for our blog too. In fact, we decided to take it to the next level and have Katie come up with a whole new blog design for us.
We wanted something fun and funky and cool, with a touch of sparkle and glam – and Katie didn't disappoint!! I mean, check out the caricatures of us that Katie created. They look almost as hot as we look in real life!! Hahaha!!! I wish!!!! Is it wrong to have caricature envy?? Because I'm seriously wishing the real me looked like the caricature me!!
I love purple and blue, Victoria loves orange and green. I'm a bit wacky and tomboyish, Victoria isn't so much into wacky and is definitely the girly one. Katie was able to create a design that represents us perfectly. So perfectly, in fact, that when I opened the first drafts she sent to us, I just about peed myself from the excitement!!
Victoria and I had a heated debate about green vs purple strips down the sides. Well, as heated as you can get over MSN Messenger ;-) In the end, Victoria realized that purple rules and green drools, so I got the purple strips down the sides that I wanted :-) But I let Victoria get the swirls in her two favourite colours, and DesignTies is back to its happy feng shui self – it's all about compromise :-) Note to our readers from Victoria: Don’t let Kelly snow-ball ya… I let Kelly have her purple because I knew that just a touch of orange and green would be timeless!! ;-)
Obviously we have a little clean-up and re-organization to do… please be patient while we work out our sidebar!!
We'd love to hear your thoughts on our new blog design – so talk to us!! Then pop over to Lemon Cherry Blogs and see all the services Katie offers. Because everyone should have an awesome freshly squeezed blog with a sexy caricature of themselves :-)
And then head on back to Susan’s blog, Between Naps on the Porch,

And to our readers… we’re crazy about all of you! Thank you SO MUCH for following our little blog!!
