Hi everyone, Katie here.
Glogirly and I have been hard at work making the blogosphere a more stylish place for the winners of the GLOGIRLY DESIGN Big Blog Makeover. We promised to share our progress and we're super excited to show off our first before and after with you today.
It's not clear whether or not Benny & Lily of Two French Bulldogs knew what they were getting themselves into when they entered the Blog Makeover Drawing. After all, a couple of dogs in a clearly cat-dominated contest didn't stand much of a chance. But the two frenchies lead a charmed life. Lucky dog, lucky dog.

During our initial consultation with the two doggy bloggers, we talked about their vision for the blog. When they finally stopped with all the sniffing and playing around with each other's tails, they asked me to stick them in a cardboard box. Seriously? Since when do DOGS get all lathered up over a box? Everyone knows that boxes are a cat thing. But who am I to argue with a couple of DOGS. Glogirly says the client is always right. Yeah, except when they're wrong. Or when they're DOGS.
But I'm a pleaser. A giver. A lover of all animals. (Ok I really only tolerate dogs...but I that counts, right?) So I was only following instruction when I created their new look.

Here's what we gave them:
- Custom header and logo
- Profile avatar for their sidebar
- Custom blog background
- The full-service magic wand switcharoo. (That's code for: We went into their template for them, loaded up all the files, switched out fonts and colors and tweaked the layout.)

We're already thinking about some fun ideas to update their designs for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day, Cat Appreciation Day...
Please swing by Two French Bulldogs and take a look around and leave them some kitty love. Truth be told, B&L have been our friends for a couple years now. Don't tell...but we actually LOVE their blog. They're always cracking us up with their antics and silly remarks. Let's just hope they find their way out of this box so they can start blogging again.
