This Design Sizzles...Sexy New Layout

The Pleasures Chest is my latest blog design, and this one was smokin' hot. Dee, the author of The Pleasures Chest had very specific wants...and when she showed me the images she wanted to incorporate into the header, I couldn't fault her tastes. :)

GoBy - Slate grays, burgundy and blacks.


Cultured Creativity...Another Blog Design Launch

The Book Guru is hot off the press - with only a few minor bumps along the way.

GoBy: Harry Potter feeling, but still a bit sexy and very comfy.  Lindsey wanted the sorting hat, her two cats and Puff the Magic Dragon all featured in her blog, along with rows and rows of books; which left me scratching my head at some point. But I think I got them all in there, along with a few other tidbits - and still managed to look not-so-cluttered, or at least I HOPE!


I'm Seeing Stars...A New Blog Design Launch

ReaganStar at Star Shadows commissioned a new blog design recently and here is the end result.

The GoBy was something I was excited about, since I love dark designs and fairies.  Stars, dark colors, with blacks, blues, purples. One of my infamous avatars, and a dark fairy in there somewhere.

Making Magic...Another Blog Launch

Introducing Melissa's Spellbound By Books

A new design for a new blog. Spellbound By Books launched last night, go and check out the blog...I'm the only lonely follower! I'm rather fond of this design also...the tree, the moon, the shooting stars.

Go By: Normal girl reading, with a fantasy world being revealed behind her as if the book is opening a new world for her.

Books, Puppies & Blonds Oh My!

My latest design is hot off the Mac...and getting some attention with the cute little pup avis I created. I'm very proud of those pooches.

Jamie @ The Book Junkie's Bookshelf is enjoying her new design and offering up unique review bits with her pup avis and sigs.  Go check it out and tell me what you think!

My Go-By: Just a bit country, nothing to girly. She also gave me pics of her two dogs, Gus and Laci and one of herself to make the avis from.

New Designlicious Blog Goes Live!

Through much trial and error I think I finally pleased my latest customer! And man am I happy with the results.  This just goes to show, I don't do this on my own, feedback, feedback and more feedback makes a much better product.

Go by: Lots of pastels, flowery, no BLUES GREENS OR BROWNS (which gave me a heart attack because I was looking at my
<---- pastel palette and what do see a lot of?!)

The blog is based on the review of Chick Lit, Historical and YA Books, so she wanted an avatar representation of all three genres, sitting on an elegant sofa, all reading.

New things to look for within this design.  The column work was extensive, because she wanted to the sidebars to end, instead of trailing down the page, which is what I usually do.  This isn't as easy as it sounds, because lining up DIVs is no easy task and their isn't an exact science to it.  Nothing is exact in web design.  There was also a lot of tweaking with the sidebar H2s (headers with the scrolls and flowers). All in all the considerable amount of tweaking led to a phenomenal end result and here you have, Bookalicious Ramblings.
