For a few months now my blog header hasn’t really been a header as such. It’s just sorta been text, plain and boring text. Well all that’s changed now because I’ve got a beautiful new header full of all the things I love!
I contacted Claire from Aloha Lola Cards because I was tired of having a boring blog header. I wanted something bright and colourful and something that represented me and my blog. I knew I could never design something myself, plus I didn’t have a clue what I wanted it to look like!
Claire started off by sending me a few fonts similar to one I’d sent to her and she gave me a few ideas about what we could include. She suggested that I have a border around my blog name of all of my favourite things and I thought it was a great idea.
I gave her a huge list of all of my favourite things as well as my favourite colours. I wanted to include a campervan, a chocolate milkshake, White Coffee Cat and of course a notebook! I wanted to keep my purple colour in there too.
Claire did a fantastic job of putting my blog header together and making it exactly how I wanted it. I was super fussy about the placement of some of the illustrations but Claire did everything I asked without any trouble whatsoever. That girl deserves a medal, I’m probably the pickiest customer she’s ever had!
I’d just like to say a huge thank you to Claire for creating such a beautiful blog header and putting up with all of my annoying little requests. If you’d like to see some of her other work there’s some examples on her website and you can follow her on Twitter too.
I’m thrilled with my new blog header! What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
