We still I am noticing have a few tweaks to make here so everything fits nice and neatly and doesn't overlap, but for the most part, the new design and blog are complete!
beautiful new design and logo would not have been possible without the
dedication, design and technical knowledge of Becky from the Cutest Blog On The Block!
moment I asked for Becky's help she was right there, asking me
questions, sending me suggestions, allowing me to make changes, toss
ideas around and always telling me yes this is doable or why don't we
try it this way.
never once gave up on me, she wasn't offended if I didn't like something
or if I wanted to change something and her imagination and creativity
with my little bits of..'I want a quilt with a headset on it,' became
what you see today.
as many of you know, I am very fond of the color purple, so we had to
have some purple in our logo and my granddaughters chose the logo
layout, the font, but Becky added the sweetest little touch with the
heart at the bottom!
If you are
looking to change the look of your blog, website, Etsy shop, I would
most highly absolutely positively tell you to contact Becky and start
very reasonable and she is just amazing with all the details and
information she has. I am so proud of this blog, of what Layers of Hope
- Quilting 911 is becoming, because it isn't just mine, it belongs to
all of us, all of us who have made quilts or blankets for 911
dispatchers and first responders.
We ARE NOT
a business, we are a charity, a ministry, a quilted blessing and while
we do not have non-profit status, at this time I see no need for it,
what you do is so very important and comforting to those who receive
Hope - Quilting 911 is recognized in Washington state as a charity that
takes in less than $5,000 per year, because we don't solicit for money
to pay employee's (there are none), the dollars that do infrequently
come in, go out to postage.
most charities, I do NOT get paid, the quilts for the most part go to
the recipients and not to us. I am just the founder, the quilters,
Becky, donators are the foundation of Layers of Hope - Quilting 911, the
threads that hold us up and reach out to those in need.
continuing on with the goal of helping others and you already have. In
2013 alone, with your help, Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 gave over 80
quilts to dispatchers and families, that is a lot of cutting, piecing,
quilting and I am humbled!
love to see Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 explode and become so huge, we
require an office, a building, a board of directors, when and if that
time comes, it is my dream, I can quilt and hand the role over to
someone much more capable and qualified than I am to run something that
meantime, Becky, I send you huge virtual hugs and quilters, bloggers all
over, if you get a chance to use one of their designs which are free,
seriously consider donating a few dollars to CBOTB because a lot of time goes into creating those wonderful backgrounds!
