Here's a little about the designer. We asked Lyndsay to tell us about herself and her design background. Here's what she said...

I am a graphic designer by trade, and a mother at heart. I have an MFA in Graphic Design, with over 8 years experience in the industry. When my son was born 2 years ago, I decided to take up the laptop and be a stay-at-home-mom/freelancer. Working from home is a wonderful way to give my family the attention they need, while continuing to develop my creativity and skills.

In the past 2 years I have enjoyed working for scrapbook company Glitz Design, and launching Banners By Lyndsay blog design. We are expecting another addition to our family—a baby girl in March! My personal blog is lyndsayj.blogspot.com.

Here's what Lyndsay told us about her design services.

Banners By Lyndsay offers over 50 ready-made banners to choose from, backgrounds, and customized buttons for your blog.

My style ranges from modern, hip and simple, to more of a scrapbook style. I am happy to install all of the elements on your blog to ensure quality. And I can usually turn designs around in 1-3 days. (Some custom orders accepted on request for an extra fee.)


Here are a few more of Lyndsay's creative buttons and banners. (She also offers etsy banners):

It is really hard to pick just one. I love the fun side of #42, the simplicity of #21 for my business blog, and #5 because I love pink and black.

I have so many favorites! I really like the colors in #45 Luck O' The Irish along with #18 Witty & fun tales... But if I have to choose just one it would probably be #3 the ins & outs of our day to day.
