Tried It Tuesday {Blog Design}

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope your week is off to a great start!

It's Time for Tried It Tuesday! 
What have you tried at school or home?
If you've never linked up with Tried It Tuesday, just link up any idea school or home related and what worked or didn't work. Simple! 

My Tried It:
Blog Design
I am in love with my updated blog design, and although I didn't make it, hiring a professional to design it for me is something I definitely TRIED! It is worth every penny in my opinion. When people stop by your blog, you want to leave a good impression. The design is the first thing people see before reading your post. I couldn't be more pleased with Megan at A Bird in Hand Designs. She couldn't be easier to work with and asks all the right questions before starting. It couldn't have been any simpler!
Since Megan's designs are so amazing, she has a waiting list posted on the sidebar of her blog. I was put on her waiting list back in the fall and December was here before I knew it!
Before Megan begins, she sends many links to color schemes, paper collections, etc. so you can pick exactly the theme and colors you like. The best part was she sends you a few choices of designs for your header and asks you what you want changed once she finishes that. I'm not a designer so seeing the different options made it so much easier for me. Megan didn't make me feel like an inconvenience when I would ask questions. She was so helpful and works fast once it is your turn. I can't imagine the hours she puts into it but for even a "Luxe" package at $140 it was SO worth it!! I don't even want to think about the headache I would go through to try to design my own! You can see the detailed information about Megan's packages here.
Of course there are many blog designers out there. I can just tell you from my experience with Megan that she is one of the best! If you are on the fence for hiring someone to design your blog and you are not sure how to do all the "tech" yourself, I highly suggest it. Someone like Megan will take your unique vision and do all the leg work for you!

This link up will be open all month. Link up anytime!
