I am one lucky lady.
Thanks to a series of very fortunate circumstances (and special thanks to Y-O-U for clicking that link over 600 times thus winning me a free redesign), I now have a blog that accurately reflects me. Jess over at Delicious Design Studio is fantastic- totally easy to work with, quick, flexible and super uber talented. She took what I had in my head and made it real. That’s a gift! I mean, deciphering me is no easy feat sometimes. Hear this- if you are looking to redecorate your blog, check her out. She’s the tops. Sincerely.
One thing I was pretty stuck on was having a caricature that looked like me. Unfortunately, most of the iStock illustrations just didn’t cut it- there were none of a short chubbette with punky hair and retro glasses. Go figure. Enter Secret Agent Josephine. If you are unaware of the creative mastery that is SAJ, you are missing out. Not only is she one of my favorite bloggers and a long-time must read, she’s incredibly talented. She took my likeness and drew a character that strikingly resembles the real me. I showed a sneak peek to some friends in real life and the general reaction was, “Woah! That looks JUST like you!” So to say she did good is entirely an understatement.
I can’t thank Jess and SAJ enough for their hard work and beautiful designs.
Feel free to compliment them profusely in the comment section.
