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.
