To cap off the “Birthday-Palooza” week, I thought it only appropriate to unveil something that I’ve been working on.

And by I, I mean Holly.  Since I’ve done absolutely nothing but b*tch and moan and yell requests at her.

That’s what I’ve been working on.  It suits me.

See that header up there.  Holly designed that one for me about 6 months ago. 


Here’s what it looked like before Holly got ahold of my blog.  Thank heavens for Holly.

As a present to my blog, I decided to hire Holly to create a NEW header for me.  Something more streamlined and less busy.  (Kinda how I want my life to look – LESS COMPLICATED…getting there..slowly.)

The Healthy Everythingtarian delivered.


I  absolutely LOVE it!  (And I’ll be switching the header over tomorrow!)

Aside from her fabulous blog/freelance writing/fancy television appearances, Holly has also created headers for these fabulous people/businesses:

Yes I Want Cake


Blend Retreat (AND she’s currently working on a new one for 2013!)




Yeah.  Holly gotz talent.  And she LISTENS.  And edits.  And puts up with me. 

I highly recommend her!

  1. Love the new look and I had a friend of a friend help me. I’m in desperate need of a little blog help though. Yikes. Happy bloggy birthday my dear friend!!! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend! HUGS!

  2. I have a blog and on a whim one day I picked the name and designed it myself – with the help of google blogger.

  3. I love your new look – she did a fantastic job!! It is so professional and fun too. I made my own header, but would love a professional one because I have been thinking of heading over to WP. Love yours!!

  4. I created my own blog header, but I am considering moving to WP and would love a professional header to go with my move. I LOVE YOUR NEW LOOK! It is so simple and classy. Holly did a fantastic job!

  5. I am just starting a new blog & would love a new header..Yours looks great!

  6. Your new header looks great!!! I would love to win a n update!!!! And I am maili your goodies tomorrow!! Thanks for being patient :)

  7. I created my own header using just a plain jane “pages” (kinda like Microsoft Word for Mac) application, but getting a pro to do it never hurts(;

  8. Love your new header! It looks great (and so does your back) :-). My blog header used to just be a picture I took in China. Now it has some pretty cursive with another China picture and I kind of like it…

  9. I “designed” my own headed by simply adding a picture of a salad I took. It’s a very blurry and zoomed in picture! Needless to say, I’m in desperate need of a new header!

  10. All of these headers are great. Mine isn’t anything specially made, just a pic of me running in a pretty area (my blog is mostly a running blog). I’d love to get something customized to cover my other topical areas as well!

  11. you are the best! so blessed to call you a friend. i am ecstatic you love the header and will get that button to you this weekend! mucho love to you.

    p.s. already have 3 emails from people wanting headers! :)

  12. Your new header rocks!
    I just had my blog redesigned, but kept a tweaked version of my old header (didn’t have a clear vision and the re-design ate up all my spare change at the time).
    I’d love to see what Holly could do for my blog!

  13. That’s such a creative header. I really like how she incorporated a corkboard of notes and tailored it to the general topics of the blog.

    As for me, I utilized a free WordPress template but searched around for a long time to find one that fit my niche. I experimented a lot with different layouts in the beginning and settled on my current theme which is great. I’ll definitely look into a custom theme once I build a decent following.

  14. WOW! Such an incredible gift! She has incredible talent too. I’ll probably take advantage of her skillz if I don’t win, because I badly need a bloggy makeover. I just lack the knowledge and creativity (and motivation) to figure it out!

  15. What a gift! I’d love to win this one as My header is simply a photo – no name, no nothing! I kind of “hired” a friend once who did other work for our young adult cancer websites, but mine was a freebie and got pushed to the way side, so I haven’t gone back for more or spent the money as of yet. Holly is so talented…and I love the new look, Linds!

  16. I love the new header! And Holly! But not exclamation points and I keep using them! Anyway, my blog header is lame. I need one in the worst way, but a) I have no graphic talent and b) I’m not self-hosted. Does that matter? I don’t care. I’m entering anyway. And Happy Birthday!

  17. I love the header! I created my own header using basic cropping of a picture I liked. Pretty standard and uninspirational! My blog could absolutely use some talent in the design department! Great giveaway!

  18. I have a pretty standard wordpress template for my blog (which i am soooo late in updating it’s almost funny. almost.) but it does have a picture header that i picked out. Probably outdated by now!

  19. I have SUCH blog envy everytime I see a fun new blog header or blog layout. I would LOVE to spruce mine up, it’s so boring and templated right now, sad face! I LOVE the new header, it is awesome!!!

  20. Ahh I also requested the talented Miss Hollz to give my blog a little makeover. So if I win, can I just have the bag of goodies? Totally going to pay you Holly, since let’s be honest, I need more than just a header. :)

  21. Lindsay, I love your new header. Love the cursive and the pink! Kudos to Holly! I don’t blog, but did have a children’s book blog at one time (I’m a teacher) but that fizzled, so if I win I’ll pass on the blog header giveaway to someone else.

  22. I just started reading Holly’s blog after having so many blends say how great she is – clearly talented too! Awesome idea for a giveaway! Yay blogger support!
