Blog Design Help

So, here's the dealio.
I'm in need of a bloggy makeover here at JK's Spot.
I need some suggestions of blog design websites/blogs.
Any personal referrals?
I want a photo-type blog layout, because I love posting my pictures.

Suspended in the wind’s highway,

I’m in panoramic harmony with nature;

And my mind is led astray.}

I definitely want the wider format, with 2 columns.
I want it to have clean simple lines and a top navigation bar.
I don't want to spend a small fortune, but I'm willing to pay for quality.
I love so many of your blog layouts and designs, so I thought I would ask for your help!
 Leave me any links, suggestions, and/or advice in the comments! 
I really appreciate it!
Hope you guys are having a FABULOUS week!♥

Can you do HTML at all??? I'm wondering if you can do your own...There is a girl who has a fabulous simple design but she did her own and isn't a designer so I'm wondering if I asked her for ideas if she could give tips that you could do on your own.
Other than that? I had Bloggy Blog Designz do mine and I love it.

I see people advertising all the time. My friend drew made mine. I know you will come up with something brilliant.

Joanna at This Southern Girls Next did mine (I have a button on my side bar), but I'm not sure if she still does them. She had great prices though.

Find a few blogs you really love and would like yours to be like and ask them who put them together for them. I designed mine but had someone else put it together. I think if I had to do it again I would try it on my own so when I needed things changed I wouldn't have to depend on someone else.

I think your idea for this sounds GREAT!! I don't have any suggestions of places because I did my own, and want to change it anyway. But, what you have in your mind sounds perfect :)

Im of no help. I like the way mine turned out but had some issues so not sure I would recommend her. Ive actually been reading up on how to be able to just do it myself!

I am using MunchkinLand designs. She did my current layout and she is working on a new one for me. I am so excited and she is so fun&easy to work with. I used my own background pic and header pic on my current design.

Good luck :)

Aubree (The Southern Family) from the RHOK does a great job. You could email her?

I used Penny Lane Blog Designs. She has photography layouts. She will fully customize the site to your specifications or she has some fab pre-made ones. I highly recommend her. :)
