I'm currently using a template from btemplates.com but would really like to create something custom. One of my main goals is to create a blog design around a custom header which really depicts the theme of my blog.

I do have some "trial by fire" graphic design ability but the only software I have is MS Publisher.

I'm debating trying to create something myself or finding someone else to do it (but can't afford a lot.)

The other consideration is that I own my URL (http://www.beamingbalance.com) so maybe I just go the traditional web design route and link to Blogger. (Right now the URL redirects to blogspot.com)

Totally confused and wishing I was just a little more tech savvy!

The reason I don't charge is because sometimes I take a long time to get it done so I think it would be rude to charge.
Hi Charlene! I just finished a review on a new blog design site "Affordable Designs for You" and they did a custom design for my blog @Crazy & Loved-->Single Mommy of 3 Under 5 Just look under PR/Giveaways & it's the bottom post.
I did my own with Photoshop and then played around with the Layout HTML to change different things about it.
I am sure you've redone your blog by now, but if not, I highly recommend Five J's or Restored 316 Designs, and DRC Designs.
I designed both of my blogs myself and I design other peoples too!!

Indiechick Designs
I also designed both of my blogs myself and my voting topsites. I have self-taught myself over the years, and am planning to go back to school (at age 46 LOL) to get my design certification. I have a graphic design forum and do offer blog layouts at a low-cost, but mostly concentrate on skins for free forums, photo signatures, etc.

I found some tutorials last night on making your own, but I'm not real Photoshop savvy. I'm going to throw myself into attempting to design my own this weekend. Wish me luck!
I used Judith Shakes Designs when we migrated from Blogger to WP (self host) and I loved her and my design. You can check it out at stockpilingmoms (dot) com
