I have a new series on my blog this year, called Go To Designs. I started with the grid, and today I'm highlighting the shelf.

What are your Go To Designs? Are there any you'd like to see me tackle in a future blog post?

Just had a brief moment to check out your blog, will need to do so in more depth when I have some time (off to work now) It looks like there are some really great tips on here, and you seem to have sort of "formulas" which really helps me and clear things up in my mind about putting a page together. I have always wanted to see someone somewhere who not only provides inspiration through their own process, but would provide a segment or feature where they would actually assist someone with a page. Have you ever considered that or do you know of another blogger that does that?

Maribeth, thanks for your kind words and intriguing idea. I have been a part of Debbie Hodge's Guided Study Critique Workshop (halfway thru my 3rd session) where we do just that.

There is a design focus every week, we submit 2 layouts and have a live 2-hour online critique session every Thursday. It is intense, but I've learned so much, and all the feedback is given in the most kind and helpful terms.

Here is a link with more info in case you, or anyone, might be interested in future sessions. There's an option to get on the early notice list for the next session.

I actually looked at this blog post earlier and left a message on your blog. I think it's an AWESOME feature. Can't wait to see other Go-to-designs!

You have an awesome blog! I love grid designs. I don't do much with the shelf...may have to step outside my box.
