Smitten Blog Designs Give Away!

Now that we're getting organized from yesterday's post........Krista's site............how about sprucing up the ole blog.
The gals from Smitten Blog Design have many free options to freshen your gig for 2009. Out with the old, in with the new.
They also offer other options for fancier designs........but you gotta pay for those.........unless..........you win one HERE! Yep, we are giving away a blog design.
They are gracious enough to offer a give away of one of their limited edition templates.


You have no idea how envious I am of anyone who possesses this talent. Here I sit with an outdated PhotoShop Elements.........that I'm still poking around with.
Would you look at these pears?

Or perhaps you're a candy corn kind of gal..........or guy.To be included in this give away, you know I have at least one hoop for you to jump through (by the way.......I am the Wii hula hoop champion in my household.........just saying) 1.) Besides leaving me a comment 2.) I want you to also sign up as a "follower"...........no kool aid will be served........if you scroll down.....way down......you'll see a Thank You button.....because seriously, I am thankful for all of you readers.............then you'll see a bunch of pretty faces........Just click and become a follower..........yes, it's a shameless way for me to feel wanted.

Oh, and if you could care less about a giveaway........or becoming a "follower"..........the pups have been born. OH MY GOSH! I want the black one.

Edited to add: Lots of you are saying you already have me on your reader! That's fab! I only wanted you to join my follow list to make it look like I had lots of friends, like I was popular...........LOL........ my self esteem must be low today.........or I'm re-living jr.high.

Edited to add.....again: I guess I was just so excited about looking so popular that I forgot to say when the deadline is. Geesh. How about Friday 5pm. Pacific time.

Also, when you become a follower of mine, I will follow yours.

Southern Gal said...

I'd love a blog design, any design is better than what i have right now.

Lori said...

I just started my blog and haven't done a thing to it yet so this would be a great way to start!!!!
I sure hope I get lucky on this one, I have yet to win anything but not from a lack of trying.

Lori

growingupartists said...

Oh my god, if I don't win this, I'M GOING TO DIE!!!!

Please blog contest gods, I know I've entered more than my share this week, hoping to win. If I win this blog design, which I'll so cherish and pretend was designed exactly for me,...

Tara said...

I would love to win - thanks for the chance! I've been reading your blog (nearly) every day for a long time now, and I am now an official 'Follower'!

Brandy said...

Been reading and using your blog for a while now. I became an "official follower" just to make you happy. I now I would be happy for the same reason, especially since I only have two official followers :( I just recently started back in the blogging world and am working on building my site, not because I actually have anything useful to say but just to meet new people. Love your blog. :)
Brandy :)

Jessica said...

I'm so glad I found your blog. I love all the great ideas. I am now a follower...and it's funny, I am doing my first ever giveaway at my blog next week and I was going to give an extra point to anybody who signed up to follow me...see, we all have a little bit of jr. high in us.
Oh, and I would LOVE a free blog makeover!

Barnes Yard said...

I soooo need to win this blog design. I started blogging in July and I'm totally ready to join the big girls and have a fabulous layout. I've been following you all along but just forgot to be an actual "follower". Maybe that will be my goal today-to really follow the blogs I follow. Thanks!

Hi, Kim...I love your blogs! You're on my reader but I'm headed off to sign up as a follower. Designing new blog themes is a full time job...or maybe I'm just slow?

This blog definitely makes me feel like an underachiever. I think you also need to start a blog about laundry that doesn't get done and who has the most piles. I bet I would win :-D

Kimm said...

I am brand new (like, yesterday was my first post, brand new) to blogging, and I would SOO love to win a blog design. And I'm honored to "follow" you.

Down Home DIY said...

A shameless plug never hurt anyone, and in this case it is a good one. My blog is new, so a new design is much needed. Thank for offering a great blog and contest.

Karin said...

Following this blog -- when I already spend more time than I should cruising crafty blogs -- is maybe not my wisest decisions. But just judging by the latest few entries that I've had time to read through after discovering this site today, HOW CAN I RESIST?!? : )

Thanks for collecting all these great sites into one place!

Alisa said...

Already a reader, now a follower. I love all the amazing blog design possibilities out there! Your blog is wonderful! Thanks!

Amy said...

I want it. I want it.

Janet said...

Time to be an "official" follower. I have been unofficially following for so long. I recently heard the term 'blurker' for someone who checks out blogs anonymously. I don't want to be a blurker!

Jill said...

I have been a "follower" of you for a few months now and love it!

And I need a blog makeover - I'd made one for one of my blogs, but haven't had time to do my personal one.

And I would very humbled if you would follow me! Thank you!

Tiffany Hewlett said...

Would love the blog design for sure-and I have been a follower forever-so heck ya I'll follow you! My blog is
chad-tiff.blogspot.com, I'm excited for a new follower and I'm excited for you to see the cupcake invites I just made for my daughters birthday. I know I know-humility, but I'm just sayin....

Joy said...

Please throw my name in the hat ~ I am already a follower. :o)
