My Blog Makeover and a Giveaway!

I am so super pleased with my new blog makeover! Chris from ChatterScene redid my blog and I LOVE IT! She was fast, receptive to my requests and delivered an end product that I cannot be happier with! Not only that, but she is super reasonable in her pricing. If you have been considering giving your blog a new look, I highly recommend her! If you would like to see what she offers, just click on the page entitled "Custom Blogs" on my top bar. I think you will be surprised at just how reasonable she is. To celebreate my new look, I am giving away to one lucky winner, a cartridge of your choice from the following:

All you have to do to qualify is leave me a comment or suggestion on what you think of my new look! Please also include your cartridge choice in case you are the winner! I will choose a winner Monday morning 09-19-11 using Random.org. Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you back!

  11. Oh Renee, I love your new blog look. I'm gonna have to check into getting mine done. Thank you for the info. The Give a Hoot cartridge has been on my must get list for a while now, but unfortunately I missed out on that great deal going on. No Joanns close to me. It's so nice of you to be so generous. Have a wonderful weekend.

  50. I love the colors, graphics and layout of your renewed blog! Very pretty!
    My one suggestion might be to tighten things up on the left column. I didn't get that the links under the "Gypsy files" heading and then the "I love my Gypsy graphic" were links to download Gypsy files until I clicked them out of curiosity...
    The Just Because cartridge would be my top pick, although I don't own any of these, so really any would be great! Thanks so much!

  51. Love your new blog! I escpecially like the tabs on the top.
