Advice Needed Please!

I have been looking for a new Blogger template and can't find any that really feel like they go with my blog. Don't get me wrong, I've found quite a few beautiful, compelling, silly, crazy, boring, and OK templates out there, but can't find the one.

One template site I like is located at suckmylolly.com. This lady has a definite style that is all her own and I like quite a few of her templates. There is one called "Where's Jack". A pic of it is below:

I think the template is very cute, but maybe too kiddy for my blog.

I also like the following one called "Flower Blue Border":

But it's also too simple for what I'm looking for.

I also liked the following called "Black Scrolly":

But then again, I like the background of the following template called "Eat my Cake":

The only reason why this template doesn't really fit my blog is because I'm not really trying to "have my cake and eat it too", though the pink frosting on the cupcake sure does look scrummy (I love the color of the frosting as well on this page).

I also LOVE the following template called "Mum 'n Bub":

The only problem with this template is that I'm not pregnant and my daughter is now 15. I do have a dog, but it's a creamy toy poodle, not that it truly matters, but I'm definitely not pregnant with a baby and cruising around with another baby in a carriage.

Suckmylolly, you are AWESOME in blog design! I checked and it looks like you are booked into the next century regarding creating new blog templates, so no luck there.

Does anyone have any advice? I definitely would appreciate it! I truly don't know what to do, but am getting really sick of the look of my blog and want to change it aesthetically.

Hey! Thanks for the nice comments! If you're interested in me doing a blog template for you, I can probably spare time in a few weeks or so! ;-)

you could get someone to make you one, like Suckmylolly. :) I used to make templates myself but I'm still brushing up on coding for the new blogger. I only know how to make layouts for the old one, so I'm not much help. XD

I do believe there are other places with layouts though, like the one linda has used on her blog. http://blogger-templates.blogspot.com/

These other places look pretty good too:

Now and then I am tempted to change my layout. When I did change to the one I wanted I just looked up "free blog templates" and then searched and searched until one looked just right. I love the black scrolly one.

I kind of the liked the one on the main page of the website entitled "cloudy skies", I think.
I'd love to change mine to something more personal, but don't really know how to do it. Any advice? I have just used the blogger ones up to now. I know how to implement widgets and stuff, but templates scare me off.

Just wanted to say I enjoyed the time I spent in your little corner of the world wide web. Keep up the good work.

and her Mom said,
We've been offline for quite some time so we're glad to be able to visit again. I love your idea of a new template. I change mine almost as often as I change the color of my hair :)
They all look great to me.
Have fun choosing!

I too an looking for a new template for my blog and have checked out her templates too. I have a few different ones in mind, just deciding if I want to have one specifically made for my blog. Good luck with your search!
