My Blog Gets a New Look

  Hi, friends!  I am sure you have noticed my new look!  Oh, how I love it!   Many of you have commented on my new blog design, and I just have to give a shout-out to my sweet friend, Rekita who blogs over at Lovely Army Wife.   Rekita has also started her own blog and website business, Designed Lovely Studio.

I have been wanting to do a blog makeover for awhile, and then the most awesome thing happened.....I won the December Group Giveaway at The Life of a not s0-ordinary Wife!!  It was a very Merry Christmas to me.  Yes, I did a little happy dance!  Okay, I will be honest, I did a big happy dance!  :)

I just love my new look, and Rekita did a fantastic job!  I will share more about my wonderful experience later in this post.  

I want to thank these sweet ladies for the awesome giveaway!

I have been admiring my friend Evelyn's new blog makeover at A Time for Us.  I was so thrilled to find out that Rekita did her blog makeover, and it looks fantastic!  

If you have been thinking about a blog makeover, you can check out Rekita's portfolio at her website,  Designed Lovely Studio.    Rekita was so awesome to work with, and she was doing mine for free!  She did the makeover so promptly.  She wanted to know what I liked and had in mind for my blog, and got busy working on it.
I love my new header.  She is so creative, and came up with a design that I love.  Thank you so much, Rekita!!!  You're awesome! 

While I am on the subject of giveaways, I also have to share another December giveaway! I won the Merry Christmas vinyl  giveaway from I Gotta Try That.   How cute is that?  I love it!

I have also been doing my homework, and these blogs have awesome giveaways going on right now.  I've entered them all, and you should, too!  You maybe the lucky winner!

Oh So Amelia
I have one last shout-out!  My sweet friend, Sheila, from The Peace That Passes All Understanding sent me these adorable tea light covers!    I loved these when she linked them up to A Bouquet of Talent Party.  To thank me for hosting and featuring these cuties, she sent me my very own set!  They looked so cute on my counter for Christmas!  

She is such a talented lady, and makes the most adorable items.  She has an Etsy Store that will be opening very soon.
