One of the things that I love about Connie Heisey is her complete trust in me just completely make-over her site–with no input from her, LOL!
I love the new My Digital Studio software and I created a banner and background idea and asked Connie to 'trust me'–it was time for a makeover! I got two thumbs up [...o happy dance...].
Yes, I know that I am not allowed to use MDS commercially, however I didn't charge Connie for the makeover. Connie is always game for any crazy idea I get for her site, so I chose her. And, fun for me, I got to push the limits of MDS and show it off, without making over my own site.
Connie actually doesn't even realize it but the theme that I used was iThemes new premium 'Builder' theme (which is something else I have been wanting to play with). This breakthrough framework allows an unlimited number of variations on different pages… watch a video on what this powerful theme can do here. Pretty amazing, huh? I was able to configure by myself using the directions that came with the theme (…and sometimes I even amaze myself).
Expensive theme you say? Well, as a member [read: 'head bowed, hands up, unworthy follower'] of iThemes, I have access to all current themes and have used many iTheme themes as the framework of the sites that install and customize. The cost of it is included in the customization that I do for you. I have been using the Flexx theme quite a lot over the past few months, however Builder has found its way into my heart by allowing different pages to have different layouts (even widths) within the same site. For example, need a 'landing' page with a completely different look (even width)?!
I suppose I should take a moment and tell Connie about the cool potential of her site…
