what i did ♥
created numerous header concepts using web and non web fonts with all sorts of different patterns and colours, sourced and edited a polka dot background Ashlie asked for, simplified usability by removing unneeded buttons and other widgets cluttering the page, created button concepts for a main menu and finalised their placement, created a giveaway button that complements the menu buttons, made all widget and menu links that go to another site open in a new window and transferred the full blog design to diamonds and pearls admin then ensured full ease of use for Ashlie.
what Ashlie said ♥
"I have wanted a blog makeover for quite a while. I felt my blog was very childish, squished together and just generally not to my tastes. A quick plee on twitter and I was pointed in Abby's direction. I was quite nervous about contacting Abby of Abbzzw designs at first as I thought I was going to make a fool of myself because she obviously knows all the correct terms for everything to do with a blog layout. I on the otherhand know nothing so after a few hours of "Oohhh shall I, shant I", I finally bit the bullet and sent an email. Honestly I don't know why I worried so much because she was soo lovely and very helpful. Although I felt I had written a complete bunch of gibberish, Abby said I was actually very clear about what I wanted. After a few more emails, Abby knew exactly what I wanted and she had some amazing ideas for my blog. I was constantly kept up to date with what was happening and changing and I was even given a link to a 'test blog' which was so exciting to watch everything changing. Abby sent me numerous headers, fonts, gadget headers and although she had gone to a great deal of effort, she still stated if I didn't like any of them she would start from scratch. Thankfully I fell in love with the first one I saw. I couldn't tell you everything that was changed on my blog, because like I said I don't have a clue about anything to do with blog layouts/internet design, but I can tell you my blog is now a million-billion percent better. It is easy to get around, the pictures are huge like I have always wanted and it is the perfect colour scheme to suit my tastes. Also Abby's prices are very affordable. I have been on blog design sites before where the prices start at £90+ and I didn't pay Abby anywhere near that. I definately recommend Abbzzw designs to anyone who is wanting a blog makeover, you will not regret it!!"
