Template – Lotus Temple

I think this might be my favorite among the templates I’ve made so far just for the sheer fact that it combines so many different things I like. That and it has a feeling about it that just says ‘flow.’ It almost makes me wish I still used Blogger full-time so I could use it myself. I might have to make a WordPress version if I get enough request for it.

Took me awhile to settle on a title for this one but somehow it ended up adopting ‘Lotus Temple.’ It’s like a temple for your blog posts. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it and if you download it let me know how it’s working out. I’ll even link you up here as a preview blog (free traffic)!

  • 3 Widget Positions
  • No Blogger Nav. Bar
  • Scrolling Posts


Very relaxing with varying shades of light purple and grey this template has a fluid but well defined style. Widgets seem to pop out slightly with subtle borders. Those of you who like to write a lot of long winded bits like myself should especially enjoy the scrolling posts. Probably isn’t the best template for those of you who write a lot of short posts. Loads quickly even after you cram the sidebar with junk (tested).

Template – Dogg-Daze

I found this image while looking for royalty free images and instantly fell in love- and let me tell you that’s really something coming from a cat person such as I. 😉 I knew right then and there I had to build a template around it and ‘Ta Da!’ here it is.

I’m happy to say I got the chance to try out some new codes on this one that I’d never used before such as fancy looking quotes (see preview) and a slightly transparent background. Definitely thinking about making another version of this one with two sidebars and possibly a few other quirks. If there’s anything you’d like to see or that you’d be interested in having changed for this template don’t hesitate to let me know. I like to try different things out. 🙂

Check out the larger preview- please! The scaled down screenshot looks absolutely awful. I swear the actual template is so much better.


  • Two Columns
  • 4 Widget Positions
  • No Blogger Nav. Bar
  • Slightly Transparent (see through) Images
  • Labels Not Displayed Beneath Posts


A very fluid and neutral template. Classy without becoming too… froofy with nice light browns and tans. Images and post/widget background are just slightly transparent to bring the whole thing together with a blended look. Great for pet lovers, tired writers, or anyone who knows what it’s like to have one of those ‘Dogg-Daze.’

Template – Dark Journal

DarkJournalScreenWell, here it is. My first in a series of brand new templates. I like to call this one Dark Journal. At first it was going in the direction of girly and gothic but then somehow it ended up with a little class towards the end. This template was created specially for a friend of mine- you can see it in live action over at her (Nikka) blog ‘The Life and Times of a Stitch Witch‘ or by clicking the image above though I should mention the screen shot is a bit off color from the real thing and not nearly as ‘alive’ feeling.

Please note though that in Nikka’s version I created a horizontal menu- this download does not contain it. If you would like a version with a menu just drop me a line.

Installation instructions included with the template download. Happy blogging!

  • 6 Widget positions (instead of the usual 3).
  • No annoying blogger navigation bar.


A nice roomy feeling template with plenty of space for those who need it. Easy on the eyes while still keeping dark undertones and subtle hues of color. The frame work of this template is based on ‘Minima Stretch’ by StopDesign.Com.
