The New Look and Special Discount!


What do ya think? I was liking my template before. I’m by no means a blog designer, but I like to think of myself as one. You know… Reporter by day, blogger by afternoon and wannabe blog designer by night.

Well believe it or not, I was getting sick of the pink. Not totally, but pretty much. And I began to feel a tad bit guilty “what if I have a boy and my blog has been pink all this time?” All of these things were going through my mind, so I made the decision to change it up.

I’m not gonna lie, I was really nervous about turning my baby–My project over to another designer. There were times when I thought “forget it, I’ll do it myself!” But the trial and error was becoming too much. So I found Danielle.

Great woman, a future mama herself, and an awesome designer. I told her what I had in mind and we worked together 100% of the way. She was so fast and really honest (so was I). I felt so comfortable telling her what I wanted and well… LOOK! To be honest I was like “I like pink but I don’t want too much pink” and she took it from there!!

If you’re looking to get a redesign, or a design for your blog, or maybe a new website, check out The Design Girl. I didn’t even know you could DO half the stuff she does on blogger! And get this… From now until the 28th this month Baby Makin(g) Machine’s readers will get $20 off her basic and standard packages! Follow that link and you’ll get $20 off your deposit ($15 instead of $35)! Just tell her I sent you 🙂 So check it out! It’s worth it being cute!
