Qui's customer review

So if you'll notice, I just had my blog redesigned by Fine and Dandy Blog Designs. I mentioned to Qui that she needs what I call a "customer gush corner" on that design blog.(She calls it a "customer review section." Pssh.) I said I'd write something for it if she made one.

So here it is:

Qui is a great designer who created a beautiful and unique design in record time.  Seriously. That's like the fastest I ever heard of designers getting back to their client. So speed definitely gets some points there.

I think her order form needs to have more clues as to what her client actually wants her blog to look like. A lot of other designers ask for inspiration photos or blogs. Mine ended up more girly than I would like(partly my fault. My mom was like "there goes all your male readers.").I wanted my blog to look a little less flowery and fashiony. It's super pretty though, and I DID say to Qui to design it however she wanted. What did I expect her to do, read my mind?

Also, Qui forgot my signature at first(also my fault. I should have filled out the form instead of IM'ing her all my information at once XD.)

And some customers would probably feel uncomfortable with giving out their login information. Some designers don't need it. And Qui's designs eliminate the three-column option. I have no idea what that IS, but people like options, ya know?

So if I had to do it again, I would provide a couple reference photos(to something with more birds and butterflies). And change the kit. XD.

Bottom line-Provide reference photos, example blogs, and what you want your blog to look like.  I have no doubt Qui will do a fantastic job on your blog!

See! Pretty signature!


  1. Thanks for the suggestions! :D
    You were my first real design soooo, yea. You and Audrey were the lab...mice. (I didn't want to call you rats, so I put mice instead.)
    I wish I didn't have to ask for login information, but I'm changing a lot of the code. It's difficult for a lot of people to do. And installing it all can be quite time consuming depending on the layout.

    I think i'm going to go edit my order form now xD

  2. XD Okay! Maybe in a couple months when you don't have anybody else's to do I'll ask you to redesign it, if you don't mind.

    PS. I saw your form. XD

  3. Hmm, an interesting interview. I'm actually getting my blog redesigned too, and this makes me all the more excited! I got to see Qui's new and improved order form, and it specified exactly what I want. And now, I anticipate with and big smile and loads of cupcakes! Great post :))

  4. Amaranthine: You can sign up now. xD I only have one request for may.
    I love doing them, so i raelly don't mind!

  5. Your blog looks awesome Amaranthine! I love it!

    If we sign up to be designed by her will she do it or do we have to pay or something? I'm curious because I'm loving her blog and yours!

    Please let me know

  6. nvm i found it.. i feel stupid now *_*

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
