Giveaway from Creative Kristi

We just spent a wonderful weekend in Charlottesville, VA. The weather was AMAZING and we enjoyed catching up with many friends.

Now I’m sitting in my mom’s living room with my Mom and my two sisters in Vienna, VA. Tomorrow we’re headed to Lucketts, VA to check out Miss Mustard Seed’s new shop there.

I have another fabulous giveaway for you this week! If you have a blog or wish to start one, you will want to pay attention to this giveaway.

My friend Kristi (aka Creative Kristi) is graciously offering one reader a full blog design with one commercial use image/illustration purchase to be included. Normally the client pays for all purchased graphics but she will include one for the giveaway (up to a $20 value.)

The full blog design includes:

  • Custom header
  • Custom navigation bar (self-hosted WordPress & blogger)
  • Custom social media icons/buttons
  • Custom sidebar titles
  • Custom post signature (self-hosted WordPress & blogger)
  • Custom blog button
  • Custom background
  • Favicon
  • Plus, installation!

If the winner has a self-hosted WordPress blog, she will install the Headway theme for free.

Let’s say you don’t win, luckily Kristi is offering my readers $10 off any full blog redesign if you sign up on her blog design page and mention “PrettyHandyGirl10″ in the message section. That is $50 for a new blog design! I can’t even begin to tell you what a DEAL that is! This offer is valid until May 30, 2011.
Here are a few samples of Kristi’s work:

I just love this adorable design:

This design is a header for a shop:
