Fab New Look

Jun 15, 2010 Uncategorized 19 comments

So I’m sure you’ve noticed the new look. I am no artiste, but my best friend from high school is a talented photographer and designer. You can always tell a great friend because they not only tell you your weaknesses, but they help you improve them! I love what she came up with. The passages on the wall are actual excerpts of my book. How cool is that?

I know I had the whole ‘thanks’ thing going on yesterday, but I want to thank my wonderful friend, too. If you want to check out her blog, you can find her at Shot by Celeste.

In your opinion, what makes a great friend?

  1. Great new look! Good friend? Someone who doesn't judge no matter what you say.

  2. I think its awesome! Lucky to have such a talented friend! Good Friend quality- likes to laugh!

  3. Great new design, I love the dark purpleishred. Very cool. 🙂
    In my opinion, a great friend is one that really notices who you are and can read all those little signs. And knows just how to cheer you up. 🙂

  4. Love the new design.
    What makes a good friend? I'm very lucky to have two real life friends who I've known all my life. They never jusdge me, listen to me, laugh with(and at)me. They accept me for who I am. I do the same. A good friend loves you for everything you are. Even the bad bits.

  5. Very cool…I want to update my design, but I know I'll be kissing an afternoon (and probably a weekend) goodbye with my indecision.

    This or THIS? That or this? ARGH!

    Psss…blackjack fun is underway. Should I hit you?

  6. Gorgeous colors and layout! Your friend did a great job.

    A good friend knows when to make an effort, when to back off, and never makes you feel bad for the in-between times.

  7. I'm really liking the new look – and the fact that the writing on the sides is from your book is very cool!!

    I'm not sure how to describe what a good friend is..but man, they're invaluable!

    Love the design, and the way it is tied in with your creative work. Very cool! A good friend? They're just always there for you, in some way, always!

    Lovely design. I especially like the typeface she chose for your header.

    I's day a good friend is one who wants the best for you, suffers with you through dark places and genuinely celebrates your smallest achievements.

    Thanks for the great shout-out! I need to clarify, though. I wasn't telling you a weakness, I just like to do things like this and thought I'd give you an idea! You have been such a great friend for so many years. I'm glad that we are able to stay connected even though we live way too far apart.

    So here's my friend quote: You'll always be my friend. You know too much.

    Love the new design and your posts. So much that I'm giving you an award on my blog tomorrow!

  14. How cool!

    I think a great friend is one who helps you design your blog!:)

    hi miss janet! for me a good friend is some one who always loves you just for who you are and you love back the same way.
    …hugs from lenny

  16. awesome new look! It's so personal, and very very cool!

    I agree with your friend Celeste's comments. Time certainly seals the deal for me. Friends who've known me through all those awkward years and STILL want to hang out, well, they are the best 🙂

  17. I think you friend is pretty creative. I think a friend is one like yours who tells you things you need to do to make you better:)
