I'd like to introduce a wonderful blog designer + person in general to you: Jessie.
Jessie runs My Candy Shoppe, in which she designs blogs for free - and so fast! She was done in less than a week, and let's face it, the change was breathtaking. She also blogs herself in multiple places, but the blog I found her at is A Chirographic Mind. It's a very pretty and meaningful little site, and I'm sure she'd appreciate it if you checked it out.
So basically, she's fabulous. And if any of y'all have Blogger blogs, you may want to consider ordering a design from her :)
