As I have been trying to figure out how to make this website appealing for people to visit, I knew I wanted a super cool header and logo. I tried playing around with a few things and checked around on Etsy, but I just could not settle on something that I loved. I have a friend, Arlene, who is an amazing graphic designer. She has done a number of posters and advertisements for things at the elementary school my kids went to. I have loved everything that I have seen her do.
This logo is no exception.
It is perfect.
I sent her an email a week or so ago asking her if she would be willing and/or able to take on this task for me. I could not stop thinking about asking for her help. You know what that means? It means it was meant to be. I told her a little bit about the website and my vision for it. She was so kind to work on this without charging me a penny. (Although she may find a special little gift on her doorstep one of these days.) I had a vision in my head of a radiant sun to represent my "One Day at a Time" theme. I knew I also wanted to incorporate the cancer ribbon somewhere, as well as my four kiddos.
When I opened her email a few days later and saw what she had come up with, my eyes filled with tears. It was so perfectly perfect. Better than anything I ever imagined. She said that she chose to do 4 stars to represent my kiddos, which I loved. I am also in love with the way the cancer ribbon is incorporated right into the sun's rays.
It makes me smile and I am so grateful for wonderful friends who are so kind.
