MY FIRST BLOG GIVEAWAY! 250th POST!

I'm so excited to do my first giveaway! I totally forgot to do one with my 100th post, and then my 200th post was right around Christmas time. Finally, I decided to wait until my 250th post, and IT IS FINALLY HERE! I had no idea I would love blogging as much as I do now, and on top of that, meeting so many awesome bloggy pals! That's the bonus!

Now, first about the GIVEAWAY!!

So, for the sake of my love for blogging, the winner will receive a CUSTOM BLOG MAKEOVER (sorry, no Wordpress Blogs)!!! It is so fun to have your own original page, so for you dedicated bloggers, I know you can appreciate this! I will be giving you the choice to pick from one of these two awesome ladies to create your new and improved BLOG LAYOUT!!

Tina is the gal who did my blog makeover. You can find her design blog here. I can tell you right now that she is sooo easy to work with! I never felt like I was bugging her, and she made it a point to make sure I really liked what I saw! She has a great personality, and you will be super blessed! By the way, she is the host of the Friday meme, Grilling Goodness!

Tara is from Our Princess In Pigtails, and I'm sure some of you have already heard of her! She is the gal who was doing the free favicons until she got bombarded with tons of requests. Now, she has started her own blog layout business and already completed her first makeover! She is so helpful and super friendly! You will be blessed by her too! Her blog design page is here!

So, the winner can check out both of their design profiles and kits, and then decided which one they want to go for! They are equally fabulous in my book! I will then notify Tina or Tara to set it up, and they will take care of you from there!

Now, the RULES:
1. Leave me a comment telling me you want to participate in the giveaway. That counts as one entry.
2. If you post about it on your blog, you will get you a second entry (but please let me know you did that, so I can make sure I put your name in twice).
3. If you are a follower (or you would like to become a new one), that will give you a third entry!

Ya still with me? That's it..pretty simple, right?

The deadline to enter is on Saturday, January 24th at 11:59pm (West Coast Time). I will pick the winner (by random drawing) on Sunday, and it will be posted that evening!

I'm so excited to see who wins!!
