Not So

Wordless Wednesday


Lots of you have been asking me about my blog look and that it keeps on changing. I have gotten a lot of new followers latley and everyone is so sweet and compliments on how adorable my blog is!  Well I know a lot of it has to do with how cute my girls are it also has to do with my friend Kelly over at 3 kids a mini van and a lot of love!  She is the one that is behind all the blog makeovers.  I actually went to her house one day like a month ago and she was teaching me how to make a header and what not.  Well when she used the header that had my ideas on it was HORRIBLE!!!!!  I mean I was like yeah my ideas are not working.  So she took 100% control and it turned out wonderful.  That was the blog design before this one that I have now.  Then I decided it was time for a change again and I picked out this cute paper with owls on it and it was simply colors like oranges and browns.  Um yeah she did the header with the papers I thought were so cute and it turned out like this.


Nothing wrong with it, and its cute but its not me and it't to dull for my liking.  So then she surprised me with the layout I have now and I LOVE IT!!!!  It is totally me and I love the colors.  I have now decided that I have to stick with brighter colors, stripes or dots and let her work her magic.  

And because Kelly is amazing, sweet, nice and so cool she has offered to giveaway a free blog makeover.  I know some of those blogs out there are in serious need of a makeover.  Face it when you go to a blog for the first time its the header and the colors and how it is presented that draws you in.  At least for me that is how it works.  

Here is some of the other blogs she has made over.

I absolutely NEED a blog makeover. I've never had one, just simple stuff and I would love to have a header with Aleigha's pictures in it and for it to be fun & colorful. Also, I dont exactly know what I want I kind of just want some one to go for it & do it for me. I'm not picky & know I would love about anything.

I NEED a blog giveaway because my blog is so boring looking. The free background's at cutest blog on the block just aren't cutting it. In no way do I have the time to figure out how to make my blog cool and I am so envious when I see all these cute little blogs with these cute little families. So pick me!! Please!! I'm on a bit of a winning streak here. :) That in itself is really funny because I never win anything! Both of those wins I passed onto friends...this one will be for me. :)
