My Sara B. Bentley Header

Monday, August 30, 2010

Introducing my new header & one of my favorite bloggers, Sara, from Purses, Pastries, etc...!
So in the midst of my recent header crisis, I had a light bulb moment and turned to Sara. I've been following her blog since I started this one - I don't even remember how I found her but I'm so glad I did! I love when I see a new post from her in my reader because I know that it's going to have something awesome - whether it's an outfit idea, one of her paintings of one of her incredible drawings (see examples below!). I love that she takes a fashion crush of hers and uses it as inspiration for her artwork. She's so talented as a designer and illustrator and totally way too modest about it! (she studied fashion design and has a pretty impressive resume from the industry from what I can tell!)

All images from Sara's website

So anyway, I convinced her to take pity on me and my little blog and asked if she'd be open to designing a header for me, and SHE SAID YES! yeah! She drew up the picture of the little village which is the cutest thing I've ever seen - and then I played around with it to make it a tiny bit lighter so that my village sign could go over it!

So, if you or anyone you know is also heading in to blog header crisis territory, I'd definitely recommend working with her - you can get in touch with her through her website for more details!

(P.S. She even gave me a couple options to choose from, and I like them both so I might keep flip flopping :) )


Thank you so much Sara!!!!

I love your new header, I've been trying to change my header too. I want to add a draw by Kelly Smith but I need her permission. I can't wait to change it.
