Blog Design: You Are My Color

I had put design work on hold for awhile as I tried to figure out how I could continue pursuing my love of design without sacrificing so much time with Adrian and friends. With a full-time job and a part-time job, blog design on top of my normal blogging became too much. I am glad to say that I think I have found some balance through designing blog elements rather than complete blog designs and installations. So yay!

When Jessica from You Are My Color e-mailed me, I jumped at the chance to work with her. She's a girl after my designing heart. She wanted clean and colorful, which is exactly what I love. Jessica also wanted to include some triangles, inspired by a dress she had recently bought for her daughter.

I am so happy with how this turned out. I just love how the little triangles resemble confetti. After sending over the header, about me and social media buttons, I gave Jessica a few little tips on how to pull the whole look together. She did a great job and I think we both walked away quite happy. I was able to design without stress and she has a beautiful blog that she loves. Win-win, no?

On an unrelated note, if you are of the praying and/or sending positive vibes, send them to Bree over at The Thing About Joy. You can read about what she went through yesterday. And then be sure to offer a prayer and/or a happy thought for her and her family.
