Hi, this is Rita and I design custom blogs and websites on Blogger-hosted sites.   I love Blogger-hosted sites because Blogger (owned by Google) hosts your blog for free, gives you almost unlimited free image hosting, is incredibly stable and simple to back-up, makes design and code updates incredibly easy, has been around for a long time, has what seems like unlimited free gadgets, and automatically sends your site to Google which helps your search ranking.  You also have the option of purchasing your own custom domain and using it on your Blogger site.  Your site will look completely beautiful and professional on everything from computers to tablets to tiny smartphones.

So you want a beautiful blog, professional-looking website, blog/website combo, or a landing page? No problem, I can design your dream site for you and have it up in less than a week.  I also love working with newbies!!!   ♥

This page has samples of my most current work.

Each CoffeeShop blog or website design is only $79 (normally $99!) and contains:
  • Professional Photo Website/Blog for posting large images or  2-column Website/Blog with a main column and a sidebar for gadgets/buttons. My sites run perfectly on computers, tablets, and smartphones.
  • Design and installation of a customized background surrounding your site, post-dividers, favicon, and set-up of fonts.
  • Installation of simple top header with your logo/taglines and photo slideshow. 
  • Set-up and installation of menubar (with drop-downs) for linking websites, galleries, favorite links, items to purchase, portfolios, pages, post labels, etc. and custom Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Etsy, and Email buttons.  
  • Free website hosting through Blogger and no annual/additional fees.  You can also easily point your new website/blog toward your own custom domain.
  • Huge set of free top header/slides templates, custom detailed top headers/slides, and custom-designed storyboards for posting your images on your new website included with each design. I also send a custom Photoshop/PSE action to resize and sharpen images for your new site.
  • Full installation on your Blogger-hosted website (you don't have to do anything!) and detailed instructions for updating design elements and menubar.

I also offer a la carte updates of your CoffeeShop Designs!  I send full instructions to update the design elements and menubar with each of my designs, but I wanted to offer this service for your convenience.    If you want an update, just email me at with the details.

Save hours of work and get the beautiful professional looking blog/website you have always wanted.  I complete most of my designs within a few days after you make payment.  I even send full instructions to update the design elements and menubar in the future!  If you want me to update your CoffeeShop-designed website just email me at

So how does this all work?

1.  Simply scroll down and select your favorite background design (it will appear on the sides of your website), background border, and post divider.  I will change the colors and adjust the amount of texture to match your style, but if you don't see something you like please let me know and I will do my best to custom design something you love!  I can also install your own images/textures/digital paper as a background, but you are responsible for making sure the Terms of Use allow me to install it on your site.

2.  Copy the website/blog request form below, paste it in an email, and fill it out. Email it to

3. I will send a start-up package that contains a large selection of blank photo slide templates (Step 1). You simply add your logo, blog title and/or tagline to a small top static header and your favorite photos to up to 5 photo slide templates using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements (or any image editing program that opens .psd files). I include full instructions. You can also design your own slides as long as they are 1000px wide.

If you prefer I will design a custom simple top static header (you provide the logo/images) and three simple photo slides (you provide the images) for a  $30 design fee.

The start-up package also includes step-by-step instructions on how to add me as temporary admin. to your site so I can install your new design (Step 2).

4. Once I have everything I need for the design,  I will send out the invoice. After the invoice is paid I will send your design proofs and after you approve them I will install everything on your site (usually within a few days).  Note: I install the new design directly on your website rather than use a test website as this allows me to get your new website design up much faster and also allows me to keep my prices so affordable.

CoffeeShop Website/Blog Designs are on sale for only $79 and include installation on your Blogger-hosted site. I also send instructions with each design that show you how to update your menubar, slideshow, and many other design elements on your new blog. Please cut and paste this into an email with your answers.

1. What is your Blogger-hosted website address? If you don't have one yet, go to and register for a free one.  If you own your own personal domain you can point it toward your new site.

Do you want a one-column photo-blog/website  for posting large images (sample), or do you want a 2-column site with a sidebar for gadgets (sample)?

2. Which textured background (see below, all can be customized for your site) do you want on the sides of your website?
    Background color(s)?
    Which border (see below) do you want surrounding your website pages/posts?
    Border color?

These designs come with white backgrounds behind the post area. 

3. Which premade post divider (see below) do you want installed?
    Post divider color?

If you want a simple custom-designed post divider using design elements from your logo, in most cases there will be no additional fee. Please make a note about customized details here.

4. This website design comes with the installation of a slideshow header and a top static header for your logo/tagline. I will send a large set of free slide templates with full instructions so you can easily assemble these on your own in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and send them back to me to install on your blog. I also include instructions on changing these out in the future.

If you are short on time  I will design a simple top static header (you provide the logo/images) and a simple photo slideshow with 3 flashing slides (up to 5 images/slide, I will put the images in the way I think look best and I won't necessarily use all of the images you send me) for a $30 extra design fee. Would you like me to design your slideshow header?

5. What menutabs do you want on top of your website? Please paste actual website links to your websites, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. with this questionnaire if you want me to add them. Make sure to list the drop-down links if possible. I can link pages, websites, labels on posts, etc. I send full instructions to update the menubar later on your own, but I prefer to set up as much as I can for you.  I can also design custom menubar buttons if you prefer.  For example: Home, Website, About Me, Gallery (Baby, Child, Family, Senior), Contact Me, Facebook, Instagram

6. What email address do you want me to invoice?  You can pay via paypal or cc. I don't send an invoice until I am ready to start working on your design.

7. Please attach your logo if you want me to match colors or use it in your design.

8.  Additional Comments:

Please copy and paste this website request form into an email and send it to Rita at .

Step 1: Select a post divider (these go between your posts). I can customize the colors.  I will also create simple custom-designed post dividers with your logo or design elements.  In most cases there will be no additional fee.  If you don't see anything you like here, just let me know and I will create something perfect for you.

Step 2:  Please select your favorite border and background.  

The background includes the patterned and/or colored area surrounding your white post area and the border around your site (you can mix and match designs).

NOTE: These backgrounds will not show up on smart phones or tablets in order to maximize your website viewing. You will see them on computer monitors.  :-)

A. Border:  Select your favorite border style.  Border colors will be customized by changing the colors or adding texture/digital papers to coordinate with your site. 
B. Background:  The backgrounds below are pre-made designs, and if you see one you love I will customize it for you by changing the colors, amount of texture, etc.  If you don't see a specific design that inspires you, please let me know and I will do my best to design a custom one for you.

I can also use your own custom digital designs or other designer's papers for your background as long as the terms allow their use.
