Banners, and templates and gadgets...oh my!

I'm becoming totally addicted to this blogging business. I've been looking and looking and looking at other blogs and seeing some fabulous designs! I'm getting ideas and inspiration all over the place! Now the problem is...what can I afford, and can I even implement this stuff being the novice that I am.

You may have noticed over the last few weeks that I've been dallying with my template design...changing colors and gadgets and what not. I'm ready to take things to the next level. I've been searching for freebie options on the Internet and found some great template designs, but if you're willing to shell out a couple of bucks there are even more options! I must admit that I want my blog to be enviable! I must peruse my budget and see what my options are....

Hubby is a graphic and Web site designer, and a great one at that, but his schedule doesn't permit a lot of pro bono work to be done. He has offered to help me out a few times, but honestly by the end of the day we both just want to go to bed and he's not ready to try to squeeze in one more project. Can't say that I blame him. I have a hard time making room for the projects that I can do all on my own. So, that being said...I hope to have some changes made to my blog over the course of the next couple of weeks. I found a great banner design by Lindsey that I would like but as I mentioned budgeting is required. Check out her stuff if you have a chance...she's pretty talented!

Happy blogging, my friends!
