Over 100 Followers and a GIVEAWAY!- CLOSED


Today I am SUPER excited! Why, you may ask? Because I have over 100 followers! I feel so blessed by each and every one of you that you find my stuff interesting enough to read.

So to celebrate and to give something back to you guys, I'm doing a GIVEAWAY!


Now, I'm still a college student with no job right now so I don't have a lot of money to spend. But I can work my way around a computer fairly well. So I offer you my design skills.

I'm giving away a blog design, customized by me! I'll work with the winner to design a custom background, blog header, and any buttons you may want. I'll also help with any other blog designs you want that have been featured on my blog (installing a different font as your title/sidebar fonts, signature, navigation bar).


I customized all of my own blog design.

I also designed a blog for Cindy at Purple Froggie Clay Stuff.

I designed a "featured" button based off of her "fan" button design for Mrs. Sassy Crafter.


I can custom make paper designs or use existing ones (like those seen on kevinandamanda.com).



So how do you enter?


Because everyone loves ways to get multiple entries, here's several ways you can win. Leave a comment for each. Make sure I have a way to contact you!

1. Be a public follower of Not So Homemade- MANDATORY- This is in honor of my followers :) (2 entries- just because I love you guys!)

2. Blog about this giveaway on your blog. Be sure to leave a link. (2 entries)

3. Grab my button and post it on your blog (1 entry).

4. Tell me a favorite craft, recipe, or other tutorial you like on Not So Homemade (1 entry).

5. Tell me why you got started into blogging (1 entry).


That's 7 ways to get entered to win your own customized blog design!


This giveaway will end September 30, 2010 at 11:59 pm Central Time.

Any questions? Just let me know!

While the recipes all look great, I liked the stamped washer necklaces. I've seen them, but had no idea how it was done, or that it was so cheap. Yours looked great!

K said...

Blogging is nothing new to me. I started with a Live Journal years ago before a was even born. I had a personal blog that I abandoned on my 30th birthday (no connection there, promise. ;) ) and I have a humor blog. I knew I wanted another blog with some substance, and kicked around various ideas. I stumbled across a crafty blog and the lightbulb went off in my head! It's an easy, and comfy fit, since I'm always crafting or cooking. :)

I started blogging just to keep the family updated, but then i started to look at other peoples blogs and they where just so crafty so I decided I wanted to do the same.

I started blogging to share my handmade crafts and other aspects of my life in general. I started out with a "Creative Occasion Ideas" blog before, and didn't get anywhere with it, so I decided to go for the life/crafty blog instead. And it definitely could use a new look!

I started bloggin because I wanted to share my talents with other (the few I have!) and what a better way to do it than to have a blog, right?

Tana said...

I'm public follower of Not So Homemade.

Tana said...

Why I started blogging...
I started blogging because I seemed like a easy way for me to send up dates about my family to my other family members and friends that live far away from us after my 3rd son was born with a soft cleft palate. It was also a way to share some funny stories and photos. I've really enjoyed the creative writing thing, so I've kept on and have decided to go public with it. I would also like to build up my follows so that I can do give aways too, which leads me to invite you, and other readers to come on over and check out my blog at http://littlebirdseeds.blogspot.com/;become a follower (if you’d like), and grab Hector Bat the free HTML image that I created to share with you all, so that you could decorate your blog page for Halloween. (Just click on the image and follow it to my Photobucket album then copy the HTML and paste it into you HTML gadget box.)

I started blogging as a way to keep track of mine and my hubby's adventures in Ohio! My blog has definitely evolved since I started it in January - I never realized I would love it so much! I'm planning on changing my blog name in December so I desperately NEED a new blog design! I hope I win! *crossing fingers*
