No, I wish I did get it professionally done but it's the money that I don't have. My site is on it's own server and it tends to be more expensive to do redesigns. I do plan to do it one day so that my site can have it's own personality.
Yes, I have new design coming out hopefully by this Sunday evening (if I nag my husband enough to code it up for me! :). I can't wait. It really cleans up my current design and tones down the colors to make it more readable.
Cicily at August Afternoon Designs did a fantastic job! She does really good work with her typography and font choices. My site with her design isn't live yet, but you can check out her other work here: http://www.augustafternoon.com/
I'm just learning how to make my own backgrounds and I have had a lot of fun fixing up my blog. Go check out my Valentines background. I have had so much fun making it. I almost can't wait until Valentines Day is over so I can make do another one!
I Wish! I seem to be stricken with something that won't allow me to pay for something that I might, just might, be able to do myself. So I drew and designed my header and everything else! It gets great feedback but as soon as I move to Wordpress I will have to bite the bullet and get some help! :)
