A Revamp

Ah, how nice and refreshing. I got tired of making changes to my blog and wasn't really interested in all the same designs that everyone does for $100+ so I went with a template from Etsy and I am so happy! I worked with Suzana from This Girl Design and she was wonderful to work with while she customized it for me!

You also may have seen me blow up your Instagram yesterday. I got this amazing little invention called a wireless shutter remote and I really really needed new pix for my blog. The ones I've been using were from last summer when my brother was here and took them for me. Well, with this awesome little contraption, I was able to do a photo shoot of myself all by myself. It was fun, it was hard, it was hot, it took a long time, but I'm very happy with some of the shots I got. If you didn't see the few that I put on instagram (haha few, I put 9) you can see the rest over on my Facebook in the "i don't do, i just am" album. There are still some that I have to go through, so I hope to have some more gems in the bunch. And if I'm not too lazy, I'll make a few posts out of them, since there were a couple different looks. See also: I'll play fashion blogger for a bit.

In other news, it was my blog's birthday this weekend and I totally missed it. I was hoping to have my Draw My Life video done by then, but not so much. That will be awhile. I guess in celebration of having this little space of my own, I've got some new pix and a new design. Boom. Take a look around, I made some changes to my pages; about me, advertise, etc.... And get an ad on my sidebar for only $1.50 using promo code BLOGBIRTHS.

I hope you have a bright Monday!
Next Monday will be even brighter because, it's my birthday. It's Ashten's birthday. And it's Tupac's birthday. We're in the 616 Club!

  16. I don't really get why some charge so much for blog designs if all they're changing in their designs is the header, colors and such!
