New Design

If you are reading this, you can see there's a new design. I wanted a more professional look to it but add a touch of me, and I am very happy with the outcome. You may also notice the navigational bar is not linked to anything yet, I have to re-arrange some labels and re-do some posts to make it work better.

if you are interested in a design or just want to contact me please fill out this form

Once Everything is in place, I might have a Mini-Re-grand opening contest, so keep a look out

Extended Contest

I decided to extend the contest because I didn't promote it enough and didn't get a lot of entries, so I am going to give it about 2 weeks more and add a twitter background to the package. I will update the original post. Thank you

OMG my first Blogger Award!! (And a contest!)

How exciting! Jammie from http://www.theneatthingsinlife.com/ sent me this award, this is what she said about me:
5. Czianya @ Czny Blog Design she did a great job on my blog. I have made some changes but I love it all.

Now it does come with some rules that must be followed upon receiving this award:

* Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award
* Share 10 honest things about myself
* Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and or design, or those who have encouraged me.
* Tell those 7 people they've been awarded Honest Scrap and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

So now for my 10 honest things:
  1. I got married at 17, and even though I am young I don't regret marrying my husband, we have a lot of ups and downs but I love him.
  2. I love my kiddoes, although sometimes I am very impatient and i feel like a bad mom.
  3. Girls scare me, my daughter is only 8months old and I dread the day she grows up.
  4. My son is the most hyperactive kid I have ever met, I am 23 years old and I feel I have no energy for him.
  5. I learned how to HTML and CSS with the help of a fellow blogger and lots and lots of tutorials.
  6. I have a lot more to learn about HTML, CSS, XHTML, and whatever other web coding stuff but I like doing it so I will eventually learn it.
  7. I love to design wether its digital scrapbooking, blogs, or invitations/cards/announcements.
  8. I love people's reaction when I have made something for them, it makes what I do more rewarding
  9. Both my Hubby and I are unemployed, and it sucks, but we can make it through this.
  10. My dream is to do this fulltime, I can literally stay on the computer all day just drawing, and coding.
And now to present this award to some awesome bloggers:
  1. Ryann from A Working Blogging Mommy ; I met her at a mommy forum (and designed her blog) and she is just an awesome person!
  2. Paige from The Nurse Mommy; I also met her at the mommy forum (and yes designed her blog as well) and Paige is one of the sweetest people!
  3. Jackie from Monkey Mayhem; She is also part of the mommy forum (yes blog designed by me) she is so into her blogging/reviewing that she inspires me to be a better blogger (yes I suck lol)
  4. Kristin from Our Ordinary Life; Also met her at the mommy forum, she's another awesome blogger, she has alot of good posts about life and other stuff.
  5. Megan from Flergalicious; I just love her digital supplies, shes one designer that makes me wish I could buy everything she makes!
  6. Amanda from Kevin and Amanda; She makes free fonts from you handwriting! Shes just awesome like that, she also makes some digital scrapbooking kits and gives tips on blog prettyfying, I have used some of her fonts and they just make my stuff look much more personal.
And finally last but not least is
    7. Michelle from Herron Studios; She's the one that taught me what I know, shes super patient with me which is nice lol. She also does cool digital scrap stuff.

So there you go, my 10 honest things, 7 awesome bloggers and another Thanks to Jammie!

And because I feel extra grateful, one random person will get a free header w/ custom background!! I'll annouce the winners on Halloween!!! Boo!

Because I failed to promote this contest, I have extended it and will announce the winners Nov 13, I will also add a matching Twitter background. So that is a free custom Header w/ Background and Twitter bg as well!

Im Back!!!

Its been a long 3 weeks!!! I bought a brand new Hp Desktop Pavilion and while settting it up, the monitor was not working!! I was so upset after 4 days later and calls back and forth to Hp Support they finally agreed to send me a new monitor.

Only it wasn't a new monitor, it was a refurbished one, which at first I was ok with, but now its acting funny. It turns off and on when it wants to, theres a message that says "Power Button lockout" so i can't even turn it off myself. I have googled it and it says to hold for 30secs-1min and nothing!!! So again I am back and forth with Hp Support. It is very frustrating!! And now finally I got my internet back. I had to switch from Time Warner to AT&T because there was too much downtime, and because this time it required a phone line I had to wait 1 week for the guy to fix the wiring on my phone line!

So after 3 weeks of being at home doing nothing, I am back and ready to work!

New Design: CznyDesigns

Custom Design and My Baby Girl kit

I re-did my personal blog, I really like what I did. I used some of the papers from my digital scrapbook kit My Baby Girl (not in stores yet), I like that it sort of looks like a notebook and it has my beautiful kids at the top. Now that I am working on it, I see I forgot a couple things, like I need more buttons at the top, maybe do a second navbar where the post is. Anyways there it is, if you like it why don't you leave a little comment, image is clickable. :D

A little note to you guys, I am having technical difficulties with my photoshop at home, I am trying to use the one at work but since I am working theres only so much I can do. I am so sorry and I hope this doesn't delay me too much! So sorry again!

New Service, New Designs, and New Layout fix

So I've been extremely busy lately! And if you checked my last post "Do you Twitter?", Anybody that followed me got a free custom Twitter background! If you missed it here is your chance to get one. My custom Twitter backgrounds are only $7 bucks! You can make it match your blog or something completely different.

You can have a "Business card" layout like this one
It has your information on the side, like on mine I have my blogs, personal & business and my store information.

or you can have regular designs like these

And finally a new Layout fix. Whats a New Layout fix, you ask? This is when you already have a design and you can't bear to part with it, I will fix your Layout (if your design allows it). If you have one sidebar, I can update it to 2 sidebars. If you want a navigational bar under/top your header? I can add that. Thats what I did to Leslie Loves Veggies blog. She had one sibar and no navbar, so I added that in, I also added manual scroll bars for her buttons and blog lists. Finally I added a page number navigation under her posts. I like working on her blog because she really got me back to basics. I haven't done a simple blog in a while. So there you have it, hoped you enjoyed.

Bad to Worse...

Things have been going from bad to worse! First my husband got laid off last week, still wasn't freaking out because I am the one that brings the majority of the bacon, but now... I am freaking out! My company decided to shut down, giving us 60 days notice, I don't know what we are going to do, I don't know if I'll find a job, if I'll get insurance for my kids, I don't know whats going to happen, all I know is that I have faith in god and things will eventually get better.


Thursday, July 9, 2009


I'll be out of town tomorrow Friday- Sunday (july 10th-12th, 2009), I don't think I'll have access to the internet but if you need to contact me, you can do so at cznycstr713@gmail.com.

Im going to Las Vegas!! Woohoo! No kids, No hubby! Just Girls, I am excited I need a tiny break. TTFN!

Blog in progress...

Ok so I've been working on a new blog and let me just say that I am very excited because I've added a few new things that I have learned. I am by no means an expert, everything that I have done I have learned by trial and error, so when I learn something new I can wait to try it, which is why my blogs get re-done every month or so lol. Once the blog is done I'll have it posted to my portfolio so you guys can admire! :)
