Blog Makeover and A Giveaway!


Did you notice anything different?

My blog has received a MUCH needed MAKEOVER!

I am so pleased with it. I think it is cleaner and brighter and not so cluttered. I have added
pages to my blog. You will notice on the right hand side that I have added:
About Me page
Published page
Past DT page

I also added links to my Pinterest-Facebook-Twitter-Instagram (even though I don't have pictures there yet)-and the envelope link is to my email.

The only thing left to do is add the dreaded picture to the about me page and I think I
am DONE!

I am so proud to say that I did this update all by myself! ( and with a lot of tutorials and tantrums)
I can't lie, I did get a little frustrated here and there. But I pushed on and it has been accomplished!

So what does this mean for you?

It means I am going to have a blind giveaway!

That means if you leave a comment and tell me what you think of the new look you will be entered into the giveaway! What am I going to giveaway? A few great things and I am not going to tell you
until the name is drawn and we have a winner! I am so happy maybe I will draw two winners!

Today is Sunday, I will give you until Tuesday at 3:00pm to leave a comment and I will have my trusty Husband draw a few names.

Oh 1 last thing, if your not a follower.....Please consider becoming one!

Thanks everyone!

Have a GREAT week!

New share on Tuesday along with the Winners names!

Can I hire you to do one for me??? I love the clean airy look. This is the kind of blog that important things will stand out and not get lost in the clutter. You did a wonderful job!

Dorothy said...

You did a great job on your blog! Mine so needs help. Guess I am not as brave as you!!

TJ Butler said...

I like the sharp look on your blog - I think it looks really great. I am so impressed that you figured out how to do it all yourself!!

I love the nice, clean look! I find it difficult to read blogs with heavy headers (take too long for my machine to download) or with a lot of colored blocks with light colored text in them. These old eyes just don't handle that stuff very well. Congrats on doing this 99.9% by can be scary, especially if you're not computer moi.

Excellent job! I do like the light feel to your blog - I have been trying to customize mine in blogspot and have been unsuccessful - now I will have to try again!

Naomi said...

Great job! That is a huge job ,and to do it yourself is fabulous!

Lovely, draws you in but is subtle at the same time. I have been trying for a year. This is quite pretty.

Sandy Young said...

hello Donna,

I can't remember your previous look... but this one is pleasing for the eye.

It could use a bit more color ( but I guess, that's me ... color addict..), but the grey could be perfect as background for photos.

I also blog and what I love about reading a blog from someone else is that I'm not overwhelmed by lots of extra information where the actual blogpost gets lost.

What's important for my own blog is that it is visual interesting and reflects who I am.

What I also love about a blog is large photos... I don't like it when I have to enlarge the photos myself or there are tiny photos in the blogpost..

The first look on the blogpost with interesting, large photos is important for me, sometimes even more important then the accompagning text. Text should add the information you can't find in the photos themselves...
At least that's my idea..

I also like personal blogposts and when I get a smile on my face..( humor...)

If I can find this in your blogposts, you will see me more :)

greetings and good luck from Belgium

Your new look is very crisp and clean! I joined as a follower. Glad to have found your blog for inspiration!

I like the new look of your blog. It seems to be easy navigate around. It looks clean crisp and not confusing with too much info.
I have been following your blog for a while and like the changes you made. Impressing you managed doing it all by yourself.... Even though it took some time when looking for relevant tutorials etc.
Thank you for sharing your art with us.
