Look—Shiny!

Since a lot of you access this blog via some kind of feed reader, I wanted to make sure you knew about a few fun design changes here on BBB.  If you're reading it on the actual web page, you've probably already noticed my new pretties.  Nice, huh?  I've been wanting to re-do my left sidebar to make it less text heavy and more eye-catching.  Since I have no talent in that arena, I contacted my favorite graphic designer, Jerilyn, for help.  She's the one responsible for all of my blog's lovely graphic elements—the header, buttons, backgrounds, etc.  I've gotten tons of compliments on them over the years and it's all thanks to her!  Jerilyn's work is fun, whimsical and just perfect for the vibe I'm going for here at BBB.

First, if you're reading this via a feed reader, click on over to my actual blog.  Now, notice the awesome new info-graphic at the top of my left sidebar.  I actually wrote the text a number of years ago, but hadn't decided how to use it—until now.  Paired with Jerilyn's wonderful illustration (so perfect!), it just encapsulates everything I want people to know about this blog.  Now, scooch your eyes on over to my right sidebar.  Take a gander at the shiny new info-graphic that explains my grading/rating system.  Adorable, right?  I think it provides valuable information while being super cute at the same time.

I'm so pleased with Jerilyn's work that I wanted to give her a huge shout-out.  She's a talented graphic artist and photographer who's very easy to work with.  If you need work done on your blog or if you're looking to order some custom invitations (birthday, wedding, baptism, etc.), she's your girl.  Check out her website and her new Etsy page, Picadilly Lime Design Studio.  I promise you will not be disappointment in anything she designs!

So, tell me, what do you think of the new designs?
