danielle moss {a giveaway}

The Spring cleaning is in full swing around here. The closets are mostly done...unfortunately the paper piles are mostly still here. I think the paper de-cluttering may take me a few weeks...or a few months. So, I decided to do some Spring cleaning on my blog instead. It is much more fun. Probably because I don't have to do any of the work. I just send my ideas and pictures to Danielle and she makes my blog space look beautiful. If only that would work with cleaning my house too. A girl can dream.

You can find Danielle over at Danielle Moss Graphic Design and Photography. She can't help you with cleaning your house, but she can make your blog look beautiful!

She has some great pre-made blog templates starting at just $25...




Danielle also does custom blog designs...like my blog. Did you notice the two new headers? I love the first one so much. It is such a good representation of my family. All four of us...three of us here on earth and Cora in heaven. Separated for just a little while.

Danielle also does photography, stationary & print, logos & graphic design, and digital scrapbook kits. Make sure you check out her website.

Not only did Danielle make my blog so lovely, but she is offering a special discount to my readers.
Yeah!


Discount is good through Sunday, March 27th. Place your deposit for a custom design or order your pre-made by Sunday and send Danielle an e-mail to let her know that you came from The Macs.

It gets better...

Danielle is also giving away a pre-made blog template to one lucky reader!!

Giveaway Details:

Pre-made blog template by Danielle Moss

I have a blogger account and after I had Kate 2 years ago I thought I would blog about our daily happenings and then life got in the way and her little brother came along and I have never blogged! So maybe if I have a pretty blog I will do it :)

I think I might be too late for this giveaway {which is a bummer since I have been wanting to start a public blog FOREVER to share my love for Jesus, baking cupcakes, event planning and being a stay at home mom to a 2.5 yr old boy!} But anyway...If I'm not too late, I love the picture this template.
