"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become while achieving them."
This was me, too. It's so expensive anymore to get somebody to design a blog. I'm only operating on paint at the moment, but I don't think mine looks -too- bad until I can get PSPX on this laptop, hehe. If you ever need any help let me know.
Yeah, I tend to google a lot for ideas because I can't afford an awesome custom design either! I just cross my fingers and close my eyes hoping it comes together. Haha.
Found you via coast to coast blogger :) I am putting together a WI blogger get together in November, thought I would let you know in case you are interested! I'm from Wausau, we are so close! Your newest follower
I'd love to hear from you!
