New Site Launch Party and Giveaway!

By Taheerah | 2nd August 2016 | 230 Comments


Hey everyone!

Today is a very special day for me. After many months of hard work, blood, sweat and tears (many of them not mine) I am finally able to bring to you my brand new site! The whole idea of a rebrand and remodel has been on my mind for years, but I finally got around to taking the plunge this year, and today’s the day I can share it with you all!


Examples of how the website looks on different devices

The first thing you’ll notice is a brand new, shiny, mobile-first, responsive web experience. What does that mean? That this thing looks amazing on your desktop, your tablet and your phone! And not only does it look amazing, but it’s fast, user-friendly, and packed full of great new organisation and features!

So settle into a comfy chair for a few minutes and let me show you round… 

New! Categorisation

Category Squares


Occasions Categories

It was an absolute pain to be able to browse my site before. If you wanted to find some quick inspiration or take a leisurely look through my back catalogue, it was near-impossible. So one of the most important things to come with this new site is a fantastic, visual way to browse my work by occasion, style or technique! Look out for these special Category squares – on the homepage and in the blog sidebar – and enjoy the content-rich presentation of my work. Over time every single post will be categorised, but for the time being there are over 250 projects ready for you to take a look through. If you’re impatient for more or are looking for something very specific, then there’s a handy search feature in the top right corner of the site navigation bar (that actually works!)

New! Press and Features Sections


Press Page - Top


Press Page - Bottom

Want to know where I’ve been featured, or which companies I’ve worked for? The brand new Press section contains all this information in a beautifully presented format, and even contains testimonials from some industry favourites!

Looking for access to features such as Advent Calendar Extravaganza or The Gossip Column? All of these are now easily found in the Features section.

Updated! Learn about my Mission in the About Section

Taheerah Atchia Slide Frame

I had a long hard think about why I create, and why I share with you all. I put it all together in a brand new About section, and really encourage you to read it.

New Content Is Coming!

I’ll be revising the content I’m bringing you, to hopefully bring you more inspiration and more posts. That might mean that some old favourites, like Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge, might be making a comeback! And I’ve a lot of other plans in my mind too. And of course I want to hear from you – what would help you feel inspired? What content would you like to see?



I really want to encourage you to share this brand new site and everything that has gone into it. I have put a lot of heart and soul into the experience here and really want to hear your thoughts, so please leave me a comment to let me know what you love about the brand new!

And with it being a Launch Party, of course there has to be a giveaway!! I’m going to be giving away a number of prizes to some lucky commenters:

$30 value goody bag from Pinkfresh Studio

A Word of Thanks

Roundhouse Designs

Before I go, I just want to mention the amazing company that helped turn this site into a reality. Roundhouse Designs are such an amazingly talented company and they have put so much into helping to bring my site and personality to life on here. I know that I have not been an easy client by far, and I want to thank them for all the time, effort, blood, sweat and tears – and patience! – that went into what you see today. I could not have done it without them! If any of you out there are looking for someone to take your site from average to amazing these are your guys. Trust me.

Thanks everyone – and good luck!

  2. Love the soft look of your new web site with just a hint of gold and it’s so easy to navigate. Brilliant really!!!

  3. What is there NOT to love?? It is sparkley and Your different places to go for inspiration…Love it all. I am going to be a huge fan I can tell. :o)

  4. Taheerah! Your new site is absolutely beautiful…love all the gold sparkly goodness♡ I’m crossing my fingers for The Cure to come back!

  5. Taheerah, I LOVE your beautiful new blog! It is so pretty with all the wonderful gold accents, crisp white space, and is so clear and easy to read and follow. I am so glad I started following you a few months ago! Looking forward to seeing more great designs and inspiration from you!

  6. Oh, my goodness, Taheera! What an amazing blog make-over! First off, I fell in love with how white and clean and sparkly it all is…and the fonts are divine! Love them! My favorite thing about your new blog has to be the “What Are You Looking For” section on the side bar of your blog…I love how you organized your posts by theme…so helpful and organized! (I do love me a little organization!) I’m so happy for you, it is obvious that you put a lot of time, thought and effort into this new design. Enjoy it for years to come!

  7. What a wonderful new site!! Very fresh and crisp looking! I love the gold and pink color palette! Very pretty!!! Looking forward to watching your site grow and become even MORE amazing!! TFS!

  8. Taheerah, for some reason, I feel tears welling up as I view this stylish, gorgeous, filled-to-the-brim relaunch of your site. I believe this new look truly captures your essence – your creativity in the visual arts and your gift of writing – both of which are impressive on their own, but when combined, the result: passion. Deeply-rooted, from-the-heart, passion! From the shimmery gold header, to the content categories (techniques…cheering that you’ll be sharing your magic with us), to inspiration both in style and for occasions, your site will be a destination for what I predict will be a vast number of followers. You ‘say’ that you’ve put your heart and soul into this and I agree completely; but what’s more…you’ve SHOWN that you’ve put your heart and soul into it! I can’t even fathom all the behind-the-scenes energy, commitment, creativity and time you’ve invested to breathe life into this site. You know I already follow you via Feedly and FB; I’ll be subscribing to your newsletters and instagram immediately. Taheerah, you’ve had a most challenging year, so this site, from my perspective is an act of love, a ‘moving forward,’ a place where you can be you…and I know you’re mom is at your side, incredibly proud of her ‘designer, blogger, geek’ daughter, who has a heart of gold and a desire to help all of us on our journeys. I’ve commented, often, that you’re an inspiration…and you are, in the richest, deepest sense of the word. Now, if you’ll excuse me (thank you for reading this novel-length comment), I have a brand, spanking-new blog to explore! Oh…and yes, please: bring back the Cure for the Monday Blues!!
