Giveaway! Giveaway!

June 10, 2011

Well it’s finally done! I have been working on this new blog design for what seems like forever. (What in the world made me think in the middle of having a baby would be a good time to redesign my blog and logo??). Let’s start with my new logo. It was designed by the wonderfully talented Krystal Gough of Orphan Design. Why did I want a new logo? Well my original logo was something I never really liked in the first place. I thought if I was going to change it I’d better do it now than wait 5 years down the road. I wanted a logo that reflected me and my business more accurately, something fun! I saw Krystal’s work on Facebook and knew I had to have her design it for me. I started this process just weeks before I was due with Hugh and it just so happened that Krystal was due with her first baby only a week before me! She was so kind to take me on – like me she says when you love what you do it’s hard to stop working! Not only did I gain a new logo I love but also a friend. Her baby boy Jarvis was born March 12. Here’s a link to her Facebook page, go on over and ‘Like’ it won’t you?
My blog is finally finished as well. You know when you were younger and you’d get your new school clothes in August but weren’t allowed to wear them until school started? And the more you’d wear your old clothes the more you despised them and just wanted to strut your stuff in your new duds? Ya, that’s been me and my blog for the longest time. Ever since I knew I was changing it I couldn’t stand my old blog, everything about it bugged me and I couldn’t wait to show off my new one. Well this week I decided the heck with it, it’s making it’s debut! There are still a few little kinks to work out but hopefully nothing you guys notice on your end. I wanted a design that was user friendly and one in which I could share a little more about the business than I was previously able to. I’ll be adding more product photos and beginning some fun new features in the next few weeks so stay tuned!
Now for the giveaway! I’m going to make it REALLY easy for you. Just leave a comment below and tell me what you think of the new blog. I will do a random draw on Monday June 13th and choose three winners. Each winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Sweet Ginger Photography and if you’re not in Calgary you’ll receive a $25 itunes card! (Only one comment per household please.)
