Contest Closed


Today we have TWO Fabulous Friday Freebies
Notice something new around here?
Im so excited to bring you, my dear blogging buddies, a makeover! And Im not talking about a collection of cosmetics your three year old will get into and nail polish she will paint the couch with. How bout a lovely facelift for your blog? As one very delighted and satisfied customer, I am delighted to share with one lucky winner a
$55 Gift Certificate from
Let me begin by saying I was terrified to have someone else touch my blog. My blog is like my life journal of sorts...I pour myself into it. The DNA is our family! While I knew I needed help organizing the navigational aspects I wanted to incorporate, I couldn't imagine letting someone else tamper with the design and color scheme I loved.
Designs By Summer was an absolute delight to work with. I'm fairly certain she would not say the same about me however. Im one of those incorrigible people who knows what I dont want, but often dont know what I do want! (Drives my husband crazy:-) Designs By Summergraciously responded repeatedly and diligently worked on the design as I asked her to make adjustments, changed my mind, added elements and then asked her to go back to an original idea. The end result was a blog design that I was way more excited about than I anticipated! How do YOU like our new look?
Look at Summer's Design Packages Here to see what could be yours as the winner of the $55 Gift Certificate. Need a snazzy new header? Want a coordinating background? Looking to have a button made to advertise your site? Cant figure out how to design a navigation bar on your own? Thinking about personalizing your blog with a cute signature like these?
Trust me....I have been to the dark side. When you hit that Edit HTML button to try to make those adjustments yourself, you are walking in deep waters my friend! Not for the faint of heart. Better leave it to a professional!
From sophistocated styles...
...to illustrated fun...
...Designs By Summer will work with you until your blog is you! In one of her email correspondences with me, she asked what revisions I wanted to make and said she'd tweak it until I loved my design. I was not disappointed!

I have never had a blog makeover before! I think if my blog looked better, then it would inspire me to actually blog more. I would love to have a design that reflects the theme of my blog - "Living like no one else"

I would love my blog to look more professional...to not have any crazy colors but to be just a plain background with a really cute header. I also love when people have cute buttons on their blogs.

I'm new to blogging, and I would love a blog make-over that is sophisticated,inviting, and draws the reader in. I love the look and feel of the pink and burgundy colors, along with my newly revised store logo. My theme: "Personalized Gifts are Treasured Keepsakes".

Oh how I would love to win a makeover for my blog. I would have a header designed with photos, headings at the top of the blog for different pages, a background, and a little icon that comes up in the web browser (don't know what that is called.) Thanks!

I would really like a signature - like the monica one maybe. Course a makeover would be awesome too. I've tried to cut paste in the code section and it never turns out the way I like. My hubby is a graphic designer but I don't want to add another to - do to his list. Thanks for the chance to win!

I would love a blog that gives a piece of my personality. I so want a header with pictures. I don't really care about the colors as much as I do the overall look. I would just love to be surprised! :)

Saw you giveaway over in Mck's community. I would love a blog makeover! Unfortunately I'm like you in the fact that I don't really know what I want! I think I am probably looking for just something really simple. A plain background with just a few colors. But I want a really great header! I could totally change my mind about that though.

Clements Family said...

My cooking blog is in need of a major blog makeover! I need some sort of catchy header...and a button...and some good titles! Though I do have a pretty simple style! This is a great prize...and would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity!

I would love to have something that looks a little more "prairie style" because of the name of my blog. I'd also like updated family pics, and the ability to post larger pics. Help!!! :-))

I use a template for my blog. I'd absolutely LOVE for it to "look like me!" I think it's great when someone's blog shows their personality, whereas right now mine just shows someone else's brown and blue design!
