My First Attempt!

I've been making my own headers for my blog and have not been happy with most as most of you know. I shopped around and found most professional designs to be over $75! With the number of times I change my blog around... that was not an option. I've been wanting to design a better header for months but just never sat down and figured it out.

I did it today! Check out my first (rookie) attempt at a header design for fall.


I made this one for fun... I'm not a fan of too much orange, but I thought this was cute. My sister had a doll when she was a little girl named Chatty Cathy. My brother and I call her this because she loves to talk!

I want to know what you think!

UPDATE: I've been playing down with all these different options. I'm no professional, but it's so fun! I updated my mother's blog and sister-in-law. Check them out!

DEB!!!!!! It's drop-dead gorgeous!!! No joke -- I like it better than anything you've ever had before! My husband is an artist and did my Web site, but I swear on a Bible that yours is just as good as any professional's!!

And, gosh, I can't believe we are close enough in age to remember Chatty Kathy's, but they must have come out in the dark ages (my era) and stayed around until yours (the young and restless period). Anyway, "Chatty Kathy" is the name the neighborhood parents gave my little sister, Kate, because she never said much. :)

And by the way -- THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for that to-die-for review on Amazon!! You are a living doll (Chatty Cathy notwithstanding).:)

Hugs,
Julie
