web design


My lovely friend Isabel relaunched her blog Bourbon, Sugar & Mint with a new layout at the start of the month, and I’m quite proud to say that I had a hand in its design! It was such an exciting challenge to work on a layout for someone else; Isabel pretty much gave me free reign, and it was so much fun collaborating on ideas for it!

As you can see from my projects (this, Muse Kitsch), my color palette tends to lean toward brights, bolds, and reds, so getting to work within the calmer, cooler colors of blue and green was different. In retrospect, it definitely helped me relax while I was wracking my brain for ideas and coding issues!

Isabel was one of the first friends I made when I started blogging, and it’s so surreal to think that it’s been ten years since that happened. I’m so grateful for our friendship and to her for trusting me enough to create something like this! Thank you Isabel! <3 Visit Bourbon, Sugar & Mint!

    You’re too sweet, thank you again! I don’t feel like I could thank you enough for helping me with so much.

    Hm… apparently my sidebar icons aren’t showing up properly, because that’s not how it looks on my browser. Back to the drawing board, I guess not everything can go smoothly, haha.

      Oh crap- no, that’s my fault, things on your side are fine! It was just my cache- I just refreshed my browser & things look fine (long story short, I switched from my usual browser to do the screencaps- which I will change right now!)!

        Oh thank goodness it was just a browser glitch… because I was staring at the code and thinking, “I’m not this out of touch with basic HTML, am I?” Oh man… I’d forgotten how the tiny things matter, my blood pressure isn’t getting any younger.

          Aw, I’m sorry! The screencap is updated now! Phew!

            Oh technology…

            Back to the point, and it’s the last time I’ll say it (here, anyway): thank you again. You know I’ve always loved your designs, and now I’m so happy to have a site that feels like “mine,” and so thankful that you made it possible!
