Can anyone help me find a better design for this Juniper, I really started to hate the way it looks and want to do something to it. As always any help will be highly appreciated.

Those little procumbens 'nana' junipers are tough nuts to crack.

The most obvious problem with yours is a long, thin, arrow-straight trunk. Some heavy wire and a sharp bend or two will help shorten the trunk and make it more attractive.

From that point, I'd take it out of its bonsai pot and put it in a larger, just-as-shallow pot, fertilize, and let it be for a couple of years.

Enjoy. There IS a bonsai in there, you just have to work to pull it out.
