The designer being showcased today is Smitten Blog Designs. This studio is run by Oregon neighbors Kate and Heather and opened for business in August 2008. They design free, modern and original templates to liven up your blog. They have produced several templates that are sold for $10 or less (an incredible deal!) as well as adorable free templates.
They have a nice variety of premade templates for sale, but they are all "limited editions." Once a design has been purchased a certain number of times, Smitten Blog Designs retires it so that the templates aren't overused. So, if you see something you like, don't wait till later because it may not be there. And, to help their clients with the installation and other blog questions, they provide a wonderfully detailed tutorial.
Here are just a couple of their limited edition premade blog templates.
In addition to the premade templates, they have an extensive gallery of free templates. And, right now they have adorable Valentine's templates (which also work nicely for marriage/relationship blogs).
Now, if you don't see just what you want among their free and premade templates, Smitten Blog Designs can make you a custom design for your blog for just $30! That is an incredible value!
If you do use one of their free or premade blog templates, don't forget to add one of their beautiful buttons to your sidebar to show your appreciation for their work.
If you are already using one of their templates, please leave a comment so I can go visit and admire your beautiful blog.
