From the portfolio of Strosgirl's Designs :
What does "Strosgirl" mean? Angie is a huge sports fan and especially the Houston Astros, hence the name! Strosgirl's Designs is "a place to get an out of the park design"!
Q: How did you get started doing design work?
I got started in designing blogs from designing my own blog for my scraps I used to make. I did not like the generic look of the blog and how a lot of blog designs would look the same. So I said to myself, "Self, how can you make your blog better looking?" And wa la, Strosgirl's Designs was started.
Q: Do you have any advice for someone who is considering a blog makeover?
Look at the portfolio of the blog designers and see what fits you best. Look at the price and their designs. Some people charge a lot of money and you get very little decision making and then some charge very little and allow YOU to design your blog the way you want it. I think you need to make sure you feel comfortable with the designer.
