Something NEW is HERE! (and I'm GIVING IT AWAY!)


I told you a few days ago that something new was coming to this blog.

Well, the surprise is finally complete, and here it is....

I started my own blog design business!

I'm so excited to get started!

When I started this blog almost a year ago, I had so much fun designing it that I wanted to do more! So I emailed my FIRL (friend in real life), Kate of Salvage Dior, and showed her a concept I had for her blog. She agreed to let me give her blog a makeover. I've done three makeovers for her, the latest just a week ago. Each time she was so excited, and I loved the simple joy a makeover could give!

One of my bloggy BFFs, Noelle of Because Nice Matters, had mentioned how she had paid a designer to design her blog and the designer had never followed through. I offered to help her out, and you can view her recently completed design here.

The wheels started turning and I thought how fun it would be to be able to work with different people designing blogs. And my new blog design business was born!

If you're interested in a new look for your blog, jump on over to Simply Klassic.

AND just for my lovely followers...a special treat!

Would you like a makeover for your blog?

Would you like a blog makeover for FREE?

I thought you might.

I am giving away a Deluxe Blogger Package to one lucky follower of Betty Crocker Wannabe.

2. Be a follower of Betty Crocker Wannabe (and let me know you are), AND

Since I will use to choose a winner, I will have to delete invalid entries (I know, I'm a big meanie!).

For an additional entry, blog about Simply Klassic and the giveaway. Leave a separate comment on this post with a link.

Giveaway ends on Friday, January 21 at 11:59 pm PST.

The winner will be announced on Saturday morning, January 22, and also notified by email. Please make sure that your email is linked to your blogger account.

Had a look at Salvage Dior's Blog
it is beautiful!
I would keep with the Shabby Chic
and Vintage look for my blog.
Mine is new and I still have a
lot of things to implement.
Hope to look at the Simply Klassic
site as soon as I have access.
I tried through Salvage Diors
blog but still no luck.

Sandra said...

Hi!!! I came over from Noelle's blog when I saw you were having a giveaway!
I recently had my blog remodelled, but I find it too busy, so I would like something "cleaner" but modern.
I am and have been a follower!
And I'm off to follow Simply Klassic.
Hurray for giveaways!

Unknown said...

I follow both of your blogs and love what you've done so far! I'm more into modern styles, though! I'd love to win a makeover!

Unknown said...

I blogged about the giveaway!

Patsy said...

Good luck with your new adventure! I know you will do great!

I'm here from Noelle's blog and I love the design you created for her. I would like a blog makeover with a Scrappy design.

I am now following both your blogs and am happy to do so.

Kara @ Tizzi Lish said...

I am a follower of both blogs and a new blogger myself! I would LOVE for you to do a modern design for me. So fingers crossed I win ;)

Jennifer said...

Love this! Didn't know such a "helper" existed. My blog DEFINETELY needs a makeover, especially since I print it out each year. I think I am more the classy, clean lines with a little touch of spunk. I'm at Thanks! Jennifer

Unknown said...

I love the your deigns! I would choose something modern I think - I love the graphic backgrounds you have on both of your blogs, and I LOVE the yellow! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

Unknown said...

I blogged about your giveaway! And I forgot to tell you in my previous comment that I am now a follower of both of your blogs!

Unknown said...

I'm hopeless at the blog design part of the blogging world. It takes me hours upon hours to get anything done on that end. I'd just about flip a lid if I could get someone to redo my design. I have no idea what design would fit my blog. Maybe scrappy but not really sure I even know what that is.

I'm a follower of both blogs :)

Minnie said...

Follow and Follow :) What an awesome prize. My Blog's design could definitely use a little sumpthin' sumpthin'. Something maybe to go with the Crazy/Rural life I live. I would be fine leaving it all up to ya! I'm easy to please.

Tina said...

I don't know what my page style would be - maybe eclectic vintage chic with a bit of scrapbook? Hmm that is a hard one. I am a follower of you and I am also a follower of Simply Klassic Design. I loved seeing what you had done at Because Nice Matters - the colors are so pretty.

Angela @ A Mama's Two Cents Worth... said...

I would love this....I guess I am looking for something fun that reflects my life long passion for my kids and my hubby....Fun it's gotta be all about fun

I think I would like a modern look. I am following both of your blogs. I am looking forward to seeing who wins on Saturday.
So glad I found your blog.
P.S. My blog is if you want to see how much I need a makeover. LOL

Ashley said...

I also gave you a shout out on my blog. Thanks for the opportunity to have an extra entry.

Christine said...

This is awesome! I love your designs and glad that you decided to do a giveaway I would love to have my blog designed. I'm not sure exactly what I like kind of a vintagy modern type look, I'm sure that really explains it ;)
I also began a follower on both of your blogs. Come check mine out!


This is awesome. Always fun to root for someone that has a talent and shares it with others so beautifully!

I would absolutely love a blog makeover...would be so neat to have a more crisp, professional look. Simple, classic, clean, crisp, black and white, pops of color, with a splash of feminine are some words that come to mind when I think of my dream blog look! It's hard to describe a personal style!

Following you and your Simply Klassic blog! Yay!

Good luck to you!

ArtfullyJune said...

I would love a blog makeover. I've tried a few things but still not completly happy with it. I'd want to keep a shabby chic, distressed sort of feel.

Good luck to you!

Amy said...

Sharon-The OKI StampQueen said...

OH THE NIGHTMARES I HAD...when I tried to do my *own* blog makeover! Sigh. I knew just enough to mess it up-royally. As only the OKI Stamp Queen could and would, of course! It's still---not what I want so yes, please! I could use a magic wand to help fix it! Shabby Chic. Definately. With some beachy thrown in...Blessings, Sharon

Penelope said...

Congrats on your new endeavor! I'm moving to a dot com soon and have been thinking of a more modern look. With some cute avatars of our family. Wdyt?

Jill said...
