Pay it Forward

Taaa - daaaaa!!

So, I finally had a free moment to work on a new blog design/navigation.
I'd love to hear what you think in the new comment box (yuup, bigger and better) below. 

'Blogger' has a limited number of templates available and sometimes it limits your creativity a bit. But I found a fabulous designer who was able to achieve the look of my marketing material into a blog template just for me. Yay! You can find Angie here. She can make anything you can envision come to life! What I love most about her is how very thorough she is. If there was a design aspect she wasn't familiar with, she found out how to implement it. I also loved how she kept me involved with the process the entire way, which (being the control freak I am) was right up my alley. 

A few other people who I have worked with that I wanted to give a quick mention to, just in case any of you are in the market for are below:

Brand identity was improved by Shorty Red Designs. She took my existing logo and refined and created the clean marketing material around it. Thanks 'S1' (her name is Stacy as well, hence the S1) for all of your hard work, long hours and great ideas.

'Introfy' who is putting a new look together for me on the Fanpage on Facebook. It will be going 'live' shortly, so keep on the look out for that. There will be a new area where you can leave reviews and be lead to short cuts to reach my blog and site. The finishing touches are in the works and I'm super excited to see the end result. Introfy was a pleasure to deal with and had a super quick turn around time.

I have been so fortunate to be surrounded by such a talented creative bunch of people. Each of you inspire me, and give my ideas life. I'm grateful to each of you.  I truly feel graphic design or social media work is such a hard field. Although it may look easy, there is so much that goes into  trying to get the look right to please the client. The rounds of revisions and the ability to come up with something new and fresh must be exhausting. So I'm indebted to each of you. 

One final 'thank- you' needs to go to all of my readers/visitors. I'm in awe when I hear from you that you take a moment out of your day to read this blog, stop by Facebook or visit my site. I love, love hearing your thoughts and feeling the support and encouragement it brings.  

I would love for you to 'follow' me via the blog or Facebook by clicking 'follow' in the menu bar (up at the top of the page) to keep current on what Show and Tell is up to!

Going forward, I'll be making 'Thank-You Thursdays' a weekly blog post.
Hope to see you again soon!
