A New Found Love

I love making graphics. Its one of my favorite things to do on a rainy day like today. Just relax, look up some amazing quotes, advice, song lyrics, etc., and combine the words with backgrounds and pictures that really speak to me. If you had asked me a year ago if graphics was something I'd ever be even remotely interested in, I would have answered with a resounding, "No". It's only through my blog (and a love for being cheap frugality, that I've found a new love. My blog was pretty basic when I first started, and it took me a long while to work up the nerve to make any changes other than a pre-made background from The Cutest Blog on the Block.  I got to the point where I thought it was worth investing some money into having a custom blog design made, and when discussing the purchase with my husband, he looked at my like I was CRAZY for not doing this myself. It is a pretty hefty expense for our household, so I decided to give it a whirl myself first. So I tried it, and designing my blog wasn't too bad at all! Now I'm hooked. I'm certainly no professional, or even close to it, but here's just a few of the hundreds of  many graphics I've made.

The first graphic I ever made - very basic, but I was so darn proud of myself!
