addicted to change

I know I cannot be the only one. I love change. Not like a new husband or anything. But I love change...
hair color
paint color
nail color
furniture arrangement
blog design
phone cases
hair cut
teacher bag
desk arrangement

you get the idea. Some of these obsessions can be costly, like design! Others are just ridiculous! Like my collection of phone cases!
I truly believe this is because I am a horrible, no good, rotten decision maker!
So my newest blog design comes just a few months since my last redo. But, come on, have you seen Megan's work!? Seriously! And my last one never felt complete since it was more on an "update". It felt scattered and cluttered to me.
Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

circa 2011...
this was my first design-by me, might I add! how scrappy I was!
then I made this one
by then, I was making buttons for the sidebar, too! impressive!

then I had this little gal. She's from jw illustrations. I paired it with a free template from TCBOTB. There's no title because I used regular ol' blogger templates. gasp

but them I learned to make a button! I was so stinkin' proud y'all!

then I finally shelled out some money for a sweet design from dreamlike magic
She is super quick, pre-made templates are adorable, and like $20! So good in fact, I got another one! And I changed my name this time! See, I couldn't even stick to a blog name!

then I got real Daddy Warbucks and had a custom blog designed by honeybunch. It was fabulous, let me tell ya! 
seriously gorgeous. But, alas, I got bored. I wanted that cool nav bar tabs that other's had, oh, and a framed title. so, I had it updated with TCBOTB to this...

and I even made that little mugshot of myself there! 

And guess what!? you will soon see a brand new design! My sweet friend, and fellow Owl Megan (form a bird in the hand designs), is installing the design as we speak! I promise her that I will stick with it for awhile. I truly loved every design, too. I just love change. I will say this for poor Megan, she stuck with me! haha! Like I said, I am a horrible decision maker! How many font changes can I make? Oh, what about this color? Love you!

here's a few more things from Memory lane!

this one never made it! Yep, that was going to be the name!

and I have had a few signatures in my day as well!


so if you are ready for an upgrade, I would highly recommend any of these designers! And hopefully you will stick with one for awhile!
