David Dust = 'Lady' Liberty

Have you noticed the fancy NEW HEADER for my blog?! I am STILL giggling like a little girl over how much I love it.

I have been wanting to change the graphics on my blog for a long time, but I just didn't know how to do it. I have tried, but I would end up screwing stuff up - so I just accepted the fact that although my content was FIERCE, the graphics on DavidDust were forever destined to suck ass.

Somehow my darling friend Kathy (aka The Minx) heard my silent cries for bloghelp. And yesterday she sent me an email wondering if I would like something just a little fancier for DavidDust. She thought since I was talking to reality show stars and such, it couldn't hurt to spruce things up a little bit. Kathy is a wiz at photoshop, graphics, etc. - and I eagerly said "yes!!".

She sweetly asked me what I wanted, and I just said I wanted something New York City related. Just make sure the title ("David Dust") is in there, and "Hotties, Recaps, and Gay Stuff" is also included. Other than that, I completely trusted Kathy's judgement and awaited what she came up with.

A little while later, she email me a note..."what about this?":


I SCREAMED at my desk at work (luckily I was by myself). Yes!!!! A THOUSAND TIMES 'YES'!!! This was it - the header I had always dreamed of.

Putting my face on "Lady Liberty" is STILL cracking me up - and the Bunny on the lower, right corner is just absolute perfection. I can't begin to thank The Minx for what she has done - but I'm definitely buying her dinner the next time she is in NYC...

The Minx, in addition to being a wonderful person, is also a multi-blogger:

MinxEats - Her food blog, where she discusses recipes, reviews restaurants, and does a MEAN Top Chef recap. Remember, it was The Minx who created the masterpiece - "Moana Lisa":


BloggingShearGenius - The Minx is the quarterback/coordinator of this blog, which celebrates all things Top Haircut. She also just did the funniest Top Haircut recap EVAH (read it here) - just don't tell Mama Bunny I said that!

Opalescent - This is The Minx's fashion and jewelery blog. This is where she posts photos from runways all over the world, and where her hysterical Project Runway recaps appear. She also designs and sells some excellent merchandise:




Click here for the Opalescent store and more fab merchandise. And for goodness sake, BUY SOMETHING! :)

To my Darling Minx - I can't begin to thank you enough for my ferosh header. NOW I feel like I've really hit the big time!

XOXOXOXO

David

VickiD said...

Love the new look!!! You really rock the torch and the crown, Baby!!! w00t!!!

btw I dunno if you got my email, but you might wanna go check out the boards at HGTV.com, particularly threads started by Baby Face and Jared2222. There's some possible or even probable Mikey V. persecution going on at HGTV. And no I don't mean wiseass comments by posters, I mean HGTV itself.

VickiD said...

Hey David...the thread by Jared2222 got deleted by HGTV but not before I copy/pasted and emailed it to myself. I did this because I tried to reply to the thread and got an error twice. Thinking it had been deleted, I copied the whole thread and emailed it to myself. If you want let me know and I will send it to you.

Ryan said...

hey david, in regards to what Vicki just posted above I have some info you could be interested in hearing about on Mikey V. What is the best way to contact you? I couldnt find your email anywhere on here but maybe Im just slow lol. If you want i can post my email here but would rather just talk to you direct.

Thanks
Ryan

Other than wanting to do the Hercules clap from The Nutty Professor to show how awesome the new image is (Way to Go, Minx!!!!), I have to say this is awesome.

Good job ;-)
