I know many of you may have already noticed that I had my blog redesigned not to long ago. And WOW what a design and an amazing story to go along with it. If you remember my original design was also an angel with clouds that I did myself. But this isn’t just any cloud picture. These clouds I took a picture of the day my Mom died. And I didn’t draw the angel I actually bought the photo on a stock photo site. Which means other people can buy the same photo and use it on their site. Not so original right? For so long I felt like I needed something one of a kind 100% original. Something that people would always remember me by. Because I feel like my site is special and one of a kind. Well you see when I used to live in New York friends would always come to me talking about life issues like “I dont know what to do my electricity is going to get shut off because I can’t pay my bill.” Or “I’m getting kicked out of my apartment because I owe rent money.” “I don’t know what to do because we have no food to feed the kids”. And not only that, I know just what it is like to be in a scary overwhelming situation and you don’t know what to do. So I began calling and doing research as years went by and I became very knowledgeable about how to find help for almost anything. And one night me and my 58 year old friend Dar who was like a second Mom to me that I lost not much longer after my Mom passed in 2011. Well we sat at my kitchen table that night around 2:00am drinking coffee and chatting as usual. But this time it was about finding a way to pay her light bill. And that night was when Angie’s Angel Help Network was created.
My Original design
Anyway after 4 years I couldn’t take it I needed something fabulous and memorable for my design. So one day I was having some site issues and told a friend about it. Well right away she recommend Just Married with Graphics. So I thought about it for a while and decided to go for it. I gave the designer my ideas and told him I just had to keep my cloud background in my header because I took the picture of the sky the day I lost my mom and it’s really special to me. He said no problem and we went from there. And that was the day I found out about one of the most amazing designers I will never forget.
So after giving him all my ideas. I waited filled with excitement to see the new design. Then finally the email with the draft of my new design arrives.
My New design done by: Just Married with Graphics
I could not believe what I was seeing with my own two eyes. I had to call some friends and family and show them to make sure my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me. And it wasn’t just the the way it looked or how beautiful it came out. It was something way more special that I never would have ever imagined. It’s was one of those things that happens that just makes you say hmmm. Ok so what was so special? Well you see I never told the designer what my mom looked like. And I never sent him a picture of her either. But that’s just what happened. The Angel in my design resembles my mother. How? This is something I will never know. But it’s so special it doesn’t matter!
I had to tell him. So I sent him over an email with a photos of my mom and a picture of the Angel he made. I said “I am not sure how to say this so I’m just gonna come out and say it. It’s come to my attention late last night and this morning once you started working on the blog and this is so ironic. But the angel resembles my mom. Which is even more ironic because you have no idea what she looks like. With that being said I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have attached a screen shot for you too see just because this has got to be one the most amazing things that has EVER happened! I have tears of joy and my children are overwhelmed with joy. Lets just say I have an upcoming blog post about your wonderful company and this strange but amazingly wonderful conclusion.
Here is a photo with pictures of my mom and the Angel in my design for you to see for yourself. You may not see the resemblance but I sure do and so does my family.
I can’t guarantee this will happen with your design. And I didn’t request this, but it’s so beautiful I had to share my story with you.
