Laura Likes Design (& I Like Laura)

Do you know why I love blogging so much?

It’s not because I get to write everyday.

It’s not because I get free stuff every now and then.

It’s not because I’m on the brink of becoming the next big internet sensation. (Just wanted to see if you’re still paying attention ;) )

But it is because of the amazing people I’ve come to know.

Enter: Laura of Laura Like Design.

She’s wildly talented, and when she took on the challenge of helping me change up my header – I was thrilled!  Her unique sense of design actually caught my eye a long time ago when I read her About Me page. It’s so cute and impressive!

But she impressed me yet again when I saw her newest “project” on her blog yesterday.

You know how most bloggers have a “blog love” link up love fest page? Yeah well, Laura put us all to shame. She made her favorite bloggers into cartoons.

Don’t worry – if you want her to make YOU into a cartoon for your blog, she can do that for you. She can also help you with brand identity, custom logos, design and layout, business cards, invitations…You name it, she can do it!

And honestly, she’s a dream to work with. She’s an email master, never leaving me hanging with responses. That’s really important to me. The greatest thing about Laura, though, is that simply through email communication  it was abundantly clear  that she’s sincerely passionate about what she does.

*Don’t you just love her already?* 

I’m also willing to bet that she’s a mind reader. Laura sent me this little “get to know you” questionnaire before she started to design my header – and from my answers, she came up with exactly what I wanted!

Okay, clearly I could go on and on about Laura. I just want to give her a hug and a THANK YOU for being so wonderful to work with.

If you think you might love Laura as much as I do, go visit her blog or connect with her on twitter. She’s a doll!

      YAY! Thanks! She did such a great job! I was literally shocked when she sent it to me.

I hope you end up contacting her. Tell her I sent you! She’s FANTASTIC!
