Hey guys! Missed me, huh? I missed you! <3 Wow, it's been uber-long since we've chatted last, huh? I have been doing minor designing here and there since we talked last, but nothing major and somehow I never got around to post about those projects here. Truth be told, I've been super-busy with the writing/translating/reading&book-blogging part of my life, and Ps play took a backseat for a while. And God, I missed it!! So it feels good to be back. I mean, I never left, but you know...:D Today we're talking about the awesome fun I've had with Britt from the newly-named Brittersweet Reads. You know Britt, she’s the Bookworm we’ve talked about a while back – her blog used to be Please Feed the Bookworm.

Brittersweet Reads

In the meantime, she’s moved to WordPress, and chose the fabulous Tweak Me as basis. The fab Nose Graze “translated” Britt’s design into her uber-easy-to-customize-and-enjoy theme. But then Britt went on a hiatus for a bit, and when she came back the shiny new Brittersweet Reads was born. Britt wanted to revamp her style, and being the lovely creature that she is, she wanted us to work together on her new style – ofc still using the kickass Tweak Me theme. And work we did xDDD Feast your eyes on the results!

Britt got a new custom header, background, post divider, sidebar description image, rating system, blog button and some minor tweaks here and there to go with the shiny new goods.
It’s always fun to work with Britt, there’s just something bubbly and super fun about her, you know? Plus we totally geed out, jedi style xDDD
And she wanted her new look to reflect the royal bookworm-ness of her soul and all sorts of topics she’s gonna talk about, in sparkly awesomeness too. I’m kinna loving the results, tbh.
Please do visit the Brittersweet Reads to see it all in its shiny glory xDDD

Talk soon!

So, today we’re gonna talk a bit about a project I’ve been working for a while. My friend Angie contacted me a while back about working on a project for one of the awesome people she works with, Rachel Van Dyken. You know Rachel, she’s the author of the phenomenal The Bet novel, a huge bestseller (she’s also written lots of other works, by the way, check her out on Goodreads if you haven’t already!).

I was thrilled to work on this project, and I’m very happy to tell you the site is up and running now in all its minimalist, teal & white glory. Also helps that Rachel is gorgeous, see that header image there? Yeah, that’s how gorgeous she looks. Beautiful and so very talented!
Anyway, this is what her new place looks like:
