New Blogger Design: Books with Bite

I did a blog design for Savy of Books with Bite back in September of last year, and I have periodically done holiday themed headers to match throughout the year.  Yesterday I installed a new design for her.  The idea was a post-apocalyptic world scattered with books and was inspired by a book cover Savy liked. Here is Books with Bite's before shot:

And here is the after:

If you notice in the bottom half, she also has a new ratings sytem as well, books with bites taken out of them.

Stay tuned throughout the year, as there will be holiday-themed takes on this design as well. To see the site live, click on the link at the beginning of the post.

New Wordpress Design: Cheryl C. Malandrinos

I forgot to take a before of this one, but Cheryl, a children's author, was looking for a template with a similar feel to this one--Wooden Fence from Template Lite--but that could be customized.  Here was what I came up with:

I've also done buttons for The Unread Reader (All Male Review Challenge), Tales of Whimsy (blog button on sidebar), and Books with Bite (the upcoming Book Shelf Tour, which may not be posted yet and is different from her Book Tour button).  I may have done a few more, but I can't think of them right now.

Then there's this logo for Rebecca at

If you're in New York, you may see the logo on a big magnet on the side of her car.

Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have a few more to post, and I'll try to update the portfolio section. I'm way behind in it.

Oops, Never Mind

I was told yesterday the design questionnaire didn't work so when I tested it a few minutes ago, I apparently didn't fill out one of the required boxes. Oops.  Once I filled it out, it worked. Teaches me to read the error message before posting. Regardless, if you want to double check that your order went through, please email me at  I'm not sure why it wasn't working yesterday. Maybe the person forgot a box, too.

Design Questionnaire Not Working

The design questionnaire is malfunctioning again. Trying to figure out why now. Don't you just love when Google, in this case Google Docs, hates you?  If you fill it out and it won't submit or if you're not sure if it went through, please email me at  We'll just do an order that way.

And it may be a browser thing, by the way. I've only checked it in Firefox 4.  I will let you know what I find out.

New Prices Posted

I have posted new prices. If you have already placed an order and are in my design queue, you will be charged the old prices, but any order placed after today will be at the new prices.

I have quite a few before and after shots to post sometime. I am behind on that, on updating the portfolio, and in following back my new followers. Hopefully I will get to all of those things soon.
