Aqua Poppy Designs + Free Blog Backgrounds

Hello, as promised, I would like to introduce you to a lovely Blog Designer. Her name is Chelsea Stephenson of Aqua Poppy Designs. She has a wonderful selection of FREE backgrounds and an even larger array of tools to create custom designs. Chelsea created my header to coordinate with one of her FREE backgrounds. I gave her my desires and she nailed it on the head. And she was quick to boot! Love that, cuz when I make a decision to do something, I like it done yesterday. lol

Here's our interview:

Q. Chelsea, tell us a little about yourself.

A. I'm a stay-at-home mom who takes care of one little boy who is 20 months old. I have been happily married for 4 years. In my spare time, I love to digital scrapbook, crochet, make crafts, decorate my home, click away on my Nikon camera and blog-of course!! I do love food, but I don't like to cook! I could eat Mexican and Italian food everyday. I love spending time with my Son, Husband and family most of all though. We enjoy anything outdoors in all the beautiful seasons!

Q. What inspires your blog designs?

A. There are so many inspiring people and art out there! I love looking at scrapbook paper, home decorating magazines, photography and the beauty of all the seasons around me. My son and family are an inspiration too!

Q. Why do you offer free backgrounds?

A. I like to have something to offer everyone. I know what it's like to be on a budget! And offering free backgrounds is something fun for me to do for other people who maybe can't afford a custom blog design, but who still want their blog to be stylish and express their personality.

Q. How long does it take for you to complete a custom order?

A. It depends on how long my son naps! :) No, it really only takes a a day or two to finish a custom order. It also depends if I have a waiting list for custom designs. I try my best to get to your custom design done in a timely manner.

Q. Can someone come to you with a design idea and you create it?

A. I am always up for a challenge! And I love learning new things. Although, I'm not a professional graphic designer, so I don't know everything there is to know about designing! I have self taught myself most of my designing skills.

Q. Your prices are reasonable, making a blog makeover very enticing.

A. I started Aqua Poppy Designs for fun! So, I want to keep my prices reasonable so that it's affordable for everyone. I really enjoy creating blog designs from the very talented digital designers out there, as well as creating my own unique designs.

Q. Is there anything else you would like to share with us?

A. When I decided to start Aqua Poppy Designs, I didn't know that I'd meet so many inspiring and creative individuals! Most of them are like me, stay-at-home Mom's, trying to do something fun from home! Most of all, I have really loved meeting new friends and making people happy, by creating something unique and fun for their blog!

This was fun! Thanks again for the opportunity, Tammy!
