Queen of Contemporary has been re-designed!

Queen Lucy

Hey everyone!  I’m super pleased to be able to write this blog post today and you should see the huge smile on my face right now. Why? Because Queen of Contemporary has been re-designed!

With the help of Ruby from Feed Me Books Now!!! who designed the header and blog button, I set to work, using the Tweak Me theme from Creative Whim, to create the design I’ve been wishing for. Since moving to WordPress in the summer, I haven’t been happy with any of my themes and have been flitting between old headers and designs I just didn’t like. I’m so happy that I’ve finally got a design I completely adore, especially as I wanted to be sorted for 2014.

I would absolutely love it if you could add my blog button to your own blogs, and I’d love to know your thoughts about the new design below. Just don’t be too harsh to my beautiful!

What do you think of the new design?

    Your new design is so cute, not saying that your old one wasn’t good. This one is more cute and bubbly, before it was more professional and sophisticated. Great job!

    I absolutely love your new design. What you and Ruby have done together is amazing! Has she drawn the character herself as their is one on her blog as well. If so I might ask her…
