Check Out These Blog Makeovers

I know, the A to Z challenge is over and I should be taking a blogging break, right? Well, I will soon, but first I wanted to share three blog designs I did this past week.

Kelly Barnes from Words Have a Way

Now:

Before:

I ended up offering him the free makeover from the giveaway Michelle did a couple weeks ago on her blog because the original winner never responded to me (either she decided she didn't like me or my emails went to her spam folder, who knows?).

Kelly is an entertaining and offbeat kind of guy. As he says on his blog, "I talk about History, Science (OK, theory), Art, Education, writing, steampunk, spec fiction, flash fiction, cosplay..." He's also into puppet making and he has built a few "friends" who guest post on his blog. One of them wears a monocle, hence the monocle image in the header.

Adrienne Woods from Free Time Frolics

Now:


Before:


Adrienne has a craft-oriented blog. She is an excellent seamstress and is going to be making me something cute soon, so I'm excited. She's a friend of Michelle's and is pretty cool, from what I hear. Plus, her kids have really awesome names. In fact, her etsy shop, Cosette's Closet, is named after her daughter.

Dawn Malone from Here's the Story

Now:


Before:


Dawn did the A to Z series in April, too, and she was an entrant in the blog makeover giveaway, which is how I found out about her. She enjoys writing young adult and middle grade fiction. You can tell by her blog that she's very sweet and interested in things that matter. She is great to work with, and guess what? That butterfly on the flower image in her header is her own photograph, so she's talented too. I did change the color, in case you're wondering if there's such thing as blue monarch butterflies.

What do you think? Go visit their blogs and tell them if you like it.

  1. I'm sure the winner bagged on you because of a spam glitch. The alternative is unimaginable.

    Such talent! The makeover is one of the (if not the) best parts of the AtoZ Challenge for me.
