We wish you a merry blog makeover!


Our Christmas tree goes up this weekend.

Which means it's Christmas.

And I want to give you a present.

Actually, I want to give you the opportunity to give someone else a present.

You know that person that's so darn deserving of a blog makeover?

Maybe they're going through a rough time? Maybe they do the most ridiculously amazing things for others? Maybe they brighten your day with their lovely posts (on an admittedly ugly blog design?)

Nominate them here! In the comments section of this post, leave their name, URL, and why you think they should win a free blog makeover.

One of them will win on December 25.

(You can't nominate yourself. Sorry.)

Merry Christmas!!!

I thought of the ones that are always there for me. But the one that came to me first was Tabi. Her step-dad passed away about a month ago unexpectedly and I know the holidays will be rough for her family. Here is the link to her blog.

I am friends with a couple that blogs together on one site. They're such a sweet couple and always have interesting things to say. She is always wanting to re-do her blog, but has a hard time finding time to make it the way she'd like, and now they're expecting their first baby :) (so time will become even more scarce) I love them both very much and think they'd like a blog re-do by you! (You're so sweet to offer to do this.I'd nominate you, but you can re-eo your blog whenever you feel like it)
here's their site

my friend Gretchen at

She has been an awesome friend to me over the years. would love to see her spice up her blog with a cute design.

I would like to nominate my good friend Angie. Angie has been my friend for almost a year and she is always there for me when I need her.

She works really hard to support her children as a single mother. She also works hard on her blog and she deserves a makeover.

Thank you and happy holidays!

I would like to nominate my friend Julia. She is fairly new to blogging, but she does a great job. Her son has had some health challenges, so her blog has been her outlet and a connection to the many of us who pray for them. She just posted about how she wanted to make her blog look better!

Amanda said...

I nominate Nancy. She is pregnant with a baby with a fatal diagnosis. I would love to see her be able to get a more personalized design for it. The address is

Thanks for doing such a sweet thing.

I would like to nominate my sister, Stacy. She is a stay at home, homeschooling momma of 4 beautiful kids. Her and her hubby have a nonprofit organization called A Burning and Shining Lamp...their ministry they have is to reach out basically as missionaries focusing on building up prayer groups in whichever city they live in at the time (they move around a lot) and they see progress everywhere they go. Having a beautifully made blog would be a better way to write newsletters instead of sending them out by mail every month..and it would be easier for family & friends to watch their kiddos grow and keep up to date with their schooling. Their blog is at Thanks!!

I want to nominate my good friend and business partner, Starla. I always use two words to describe her; beauty and grace. She has such a full plate, but she shines with GOD's love and beauty and grace are the qualities that I feel God has blessed her with. She is married to a hard-working godly man. Starla and Garry have 4 children that they have adopted. The 3 oldest have varying degress of special needs. All 4 of the children live at home. They are Rosie - 19 and her new husband Chris, Evelyn - 16, Daniel - 9, and Garret - 3. Starla's mom also lives with them. Starla and Garry's household is very busy and at times chaotic. But they always have room at their dinner table for one more. Starla also is the director of Ruth's Room, a free clothing program sponsored by our church. She does so much for everyone else and I want her to know she is special to me and that she deserves some pampering. Her blog address is:

I nominate my friend JD. She has had a really rough few months in dealing with her father who abused her for many years. She is always kind and helpful and cheerful and never says a mean word about anyone. She has been an amazing mentor to me, and I can never repay her for all the advice she's given me. BUT, I think getting her one of your amazing blog makeovers would be a great way to say thank you.

Her blog is private, but her email is

I would have to nominate my friend, Julia! I know, you've already done her blog, once...however, she is doing so many wonderful things and working with some people on advertising for good causes, that I would love for her to get a bit of an updated look!!!

Aik said...

I seriously think my blog needs a make-over, but since the rule is to nominate a friend, I guess I'll vote for my friend Ooi. He's always posting hilarious, funny things on his blog that are sure to make people laugh.
