YEAH! A Makeover Giveaway!

Laundry and dishes have contributed to my lack of Christmas Shopping. But the real reason is... I am launching my new Blog Design Business! I am so thrilled and looking forward to this new venture. It will be a great way to help fund our Ever Growing Family, plus I can do it all during synchronized napping!



So, to spread the holiday cheer, I am giving away a blog makeover! Here are the rules:



1)For one entry leave a comment in this post

2)For two entries, mention this giveaway in a post on your blog, with a link back to this post for your readers. Then leave a link to your post in your additional comment

3)For three entries, visit my new blog, CoutureBlogs, grab my button (on sidebar), put it in a post mentioning this giveaway and add a link back to this post for your readers. Then leave me a link to that post in your additional comment.

4)Contest and comments will be closed at 11:59pm CST, 12/22/08

5)Winner will be chosen using Random Integer on 12/23 and may choose from Design Option #1,2 or 3

6)If your email is not linked to your blog profile, please leave it in the comment

7)Blogger Makeovers only

8)Due to the holiday madness, please allow 3 weeks to complete makeover
