Brand New Look ~ Come Take A Peek

Ever since I began looking at all the wonderful teacher blogs, I knew I wanted my own special look. I tried, I really tried to do it myself, but I just couldn't get the look I was going for. My husband sat and listened to me dream of my own special design night after night. Then one magical night he said, "Find a designer ~ this is my gift to you :)" Some gift it turned out to be. I am on Cloud 9 just staring at my beautiful, fun, new look. Thank you dear husband; I love, love, love my new design!
In order to get this great look I had to find a designer. After studying many blogs and designers I decided to contact Barb of Ruby Slippers Blog Designs and see if she was willing to give it a try. She was amazing right from the start. She asked great questions, tried things, and willingly changed things as the design developed. She even tried some of my crazy ideas which I'm sure she knew would look hideous, like a red background in the sidebar :0 Thanks Barb! I hope you enjoy my new look as much as I do. If you ever want a professional to work on your blog I highly recommend Barb.
