My Blog Design

For all those who are curious about my blog design, I designed and created it. My main header, the photograph of the girl in the header was taken by me using my HP camera. The header and background design, I created using and photobucket.

For my Christmas/Holiday header, I used a photo I took with my HP camera in Yellowstone. I edited the photo of the trees and mountain using and photobucket.

I hope you enjoy the design. :D


  1. Lovely indeed! How long did it take you? Would you mind giving me a lesson? I am duly impressed! It looks better than many professional designs but...where is the closet ;)?

  2. Thank you very much! :D This one was an adjustment off my original. I always knew I wasn't a huge fan of my other, but it was the first I really did on my own and I learned a lot about the blog html/CSS code. The first draft took me 2 weeks. The change over to this took me 2 days (what with working and my kids on the side). But, I've learned A LOT since I started. I redesigned my group blog For The L♥ve of Reading where I learned a ton. I'll send you an email with the sites I've learned stuff at. :D


  3. Got the e-mail thanks! When I have time I will go there and hopefully learn some nice tricks!

  10. Hi, Jen!

    I'm a new follower of your BEAUTIFUL blog! You know, orange is not my favorite color, and normally I don't gravitate toward it. But you've made such lovely use of it on this blog that I have to tell you how gorgeous it looks!! I love to follow book blogs that really appeal to me visually, and yours certainly does! Congrats on your blog design!! : )

I always love comments, and I read every single one!

Also, this is now designated an award free zone. Although I love awards and I love everyone for thinking of me, I just don't have the time to honor them like they need to be honored. Thank you though for your consideration!

XOXO Jen the Bibliophile
