Grand Re-Opening (and giveaway)

I'm declaring my blog revamp done - yeah!!  I still have a few tweaks here and there, and I need to find time to add to my "Tutorials" section over on the side, but overall I am done with the major renovations.   Thanks to everyone for the kind words - I too LOVE it all!!  So crisp and fresh.

I want to give a big shout-out to my sister-in-law-to-be, Amber.  She is an actual Graphics Designer (not just self-taught, but has a degree in the field) and she helped me a ton.  I'm good with the whole blog layout, adding in html here and there (if I couldn't figure something out I just googled it - the internet is amazing), but I don't have the eye for actually designing the images.  She just whipped up my bee and logo, along with my background and button, all from scratch - I just told her what I pictured and she filled the order.  Amazing!  She might open shop in graphic design for all us bloggers who need images and blog design- just something about being busy with an upcoming wedding and all, so it's low priority right now.  I'll keep you posted on that.

How to celebrate this grand re-opening??  With a giveaway, of course!  I am offering a spot of advertising - you know, you'll have a button over there with all the great sponsors - for the month of August for FREE.    So if you have an Etsy Shop, Online Store, or Blog of Your Own - any site that you'd like to increase the traffic on, good luck on winning!

To enter just leave a comment on this post - any comment.  That's it!  I'll pick someone at random on Tuesday, Aug 3, in the evening.  So enter quick - -
