Here are a couple blogs that I recently designed. The first one is about "garage-saling," called "Garage Sale Gal" (that title might change though). This one was setup on Wordpress using a fantastic template by Ignacio Ricco. I just did the little illustration of a woman with her kids, carrying a bunch of garage sale "treasures" for the background and banner.

The second blog is 100% custom designed. I built this one from scratch on Typepad, a platform that I have become much more comfortable with, in contrast to Wordpress, which I only have a free account and have never really utilized for all its worth. "Sarah Drags Tim..." is a blog that talks about Midwest living and the great stuff there is to do if you just look for it.
