Hi honey, I'm home!
Notice anything different?
To the right?
To the left?
I know! I know! I am in love with my new place. It has the right balance between color and black and white, retro and today, perkiness and angst (OK, it might be a little light on the angst, but who needs a whole bunch of angst anyway?).
Can I just say that Nap Warden is the most patient, long-suffering, capable, level-headed, creative person I have worked with in a very long time.
And NICE. So NICE. Probably too NICE. She could write a giant essay...maybe even a book about what a pain I have been about this.
Here is my side of the story. I love my blog. I loved the way it looked but wanted to make a change. I wanted my blog to scream "HOLLY!".
Nap Warden did an amazing job. She designed a fabulous look that I ALMOST had her install last week. Then at the last minute I changed my mind...
And then started at square one again. She was so sweet that her obvious head banging and cursing in the general direction of Texas did not translate in her emails.
After another week of emails, scans, links and marker drawings, this is what we came up with.
I love it.
This is what a visual scream "HOLLY!" looks like (today).
Thank you Nap Warden. I will release you from any designer-client privilege to tell your tale of woe. You might even want to develop some sort of screening process to assure you never have another high-maintenance-like-Holly client.
We are She is not done. We have several more things that are being added:
-I will be all official at my very own .com address
-I will have Feedburner installed properly (unlike the unsuccessful attempts of my past)
-I will have email subscriptions available (mom)
-I am changing to Haloscan for comments so that I can more easily track you down
-and a few more things that hopefully will make things easier
Please hang in there while the kinks are worked out.
And go visit Nap Warden who will be very available in a few days. After me, you will be a breeze...
