Making Your Blog An App | A New Service!!!

Today I was asked to help a dear friend of mine make her blog into an app. To do this you need to create an icon for your blog so that people can add it directly to their iPhone/iPad/iPod homescreen.
Isn't that so freaking cool?!?! And you wouldn't believe how easy it is to set these up!

1.Make an Icon: It needs to be 129 by 129 pixels. I will happily make this image for you for $5.00.  Just EMAIL me to let me know!

Save your icon as a .png and upload it to photobucket {or however you host your images} to get the image URL. Copy & Paste the URL into this code

<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="YOUR-IMAGE-URL-HERE"/>

2. Install Code: {Blogger} Go your dashboard in the template section and click “edit HTML”. Use Control + F or Command + F to find </head> in your HTML. Paste your icon code above </head> and hit save
3. Open Safari on your Apple device and go to your blog URL in FULL SITE mode NOT the mobile mode, click on the icon shown below.
4. Hit Add to Home Screen. 
5. Give Your Icon A Name. Keep in mind that if it is a long name it won't all show in one line. 
Now you have the perfect icon that represents your blog on your phone! You can also do this for your favorites to make a sort of reading list. 

I would love to do this for your blog! I will make and install the image for you for $10! Please email me and we will get started!!!


Simply Whit

Can I just say that Whitley has been such a joy to work with?!

The design that we came up with is something totally different from what we originally started with, but I have to admit that I love it now! And the design completely matches her blog name!
It's simple and bright with little bits of glamour! I have to say I am in love with it and I am so excited to watch her blog grow with her new design.

Make sure you all head over and take a look!


From Flab to Fab!

Working with Danielle was so fun!

When I was looking for a graphic for Stephany I found one that I also thought would work perfectly for Danielle! So wouldn't you know it, we bought another image from Lauren at HeyHey designs
Danielle picked such bright and fun colors that no matter what we did, everything seemed to just pop out! I love this fun design! Have you been over yet to check Danielle out?!?


Olive You

Today I had the pleasure of completing a design for Stephany, a close friend of mine, who blogs over at Olive You. I was initially hired just to do a header and we ended up going all out! I can not tell you how happy I am that we did!
The one thing that she knew was that she wanted a character set to represent herself and her adorable little boy. We found the PERFECT image that had a mom and a little boy. The little boy looked almost just like her son. The mom was a little different though. So we contacted Lauren at HeyHey Designs and I am so freaking happy that we did. Lauren was amazing at making a few color changes for us and she added a little baby bump for a minimal fee because Stephany and her husband are expecting baby #2 in October and we wanted the image to really represent her. Lauren does AMAZING work and I will definitely be returning to her any time a customer wants an amazing illustration like this. 

Once we had the illustration the rest just kind of came naturally. Stephany is used to playing around with her designs, so she has a really creative mind and was able to give some great ideas that I quite honestly would not have thought about. 

Stephany is such an amazing woman and I am so happy to have had this opportunity to work closely with her like this! Make sure you head over to Olive You and say hello! You won't regret it!
