My Guinea Pig Gig!

It's Spring!  What better time for a change?  Megan over at I Teach. What's Your Super Power? was looking for a couple of guinea pigs to try out her latest idea for her blog designing business  (A Bird in the Hand Blog Design).  I sigh heavily when I look at the adorable blogs she's designed and wish I had even an ounce of her creativity. So I thought, "What have I got to lose?" and I happily volunteered to be one of her guinea pigs.  I forgot about it until I checked my email this afternoon. There it was!  The title of the email simply said "Guinea Pig".  I was thrilled!   I think I actually 'woot-wooted' out loud.

I was so ready to get started!  First, I had to choose a few of my favorite colors.  Ha!  That was easier said than done.  Aye-yi-yi.  I changed my mind so many times!  Once I chose my colors, I moved on to the header design.  Oh no!  Which one do I choose?  The options just got cuter from one to the next.  Keep in mind that I have no sense of color or texture, so putting design elements together is quite a challenge for me. There were plenty of choices, but not so many that I felt completely overwhelmed. Next, I moved on to selecting my frame, a font,  a background style, and then a few other options and add-ons.  The process itself was quite easy. My biggest problem was making a choice and sticking with it.  

Realizing that THIS little guinea pig is creatively challenged, I've given Megan free rein to stray from my design choices.  I can't wait to see what she comes up with for my new blog design!
