Moselle Design and a Giveaway!

OK, let's see if I can get this straight. Tauna from Garden of Egan went to CBC and won a $600.00 value blog makeover from Moselle Design! She decided to be generous and give that blog design away on her blog. While I was in China, my daughter, Camille, entered the giveaway in my name and I won! It pays to go out of town!
So, after a few months, some revisions, a design created by my son, Dan, and working with a patient Jared, from Moselle, it's finally finished! The $600.00 will get you a header and canvas. I asked if they could do a button for me and Jared said they'd throw it in!  It's there on the side. You're welcome to take it to add some whimsy design to your blog!

The name of my blog was coined by Bill Cosby many years ago.  He had a routine that started with that line.  Through my design, I wanted to depict how we and our lives transform over the years.  It's like watching a movie where every frame encompasses a tiny portion of ourselves.  Some parts of the movie are fun to watch, while others may be difficult, but it all makes us what we are today.

To celebrate my new blog makeover, I'm having a giveaway!

I can't do just one giveaway, so I have three!

First: This beautiful necklace is from TaiPan Trading.  The picture doesn't do it justice. Yellow is my favorite color so I'm in love with it!   You can go here to sign up for Taipan emails with coupons, specials and more.



Second: Remember my experience with Wal-mart and the sandwich?  That sandwich would have cost $25.00.  Since I got it for free, I'm giving a $25.00 Wal-Mart gift card.  I thought one of my lucky readers could enjoy the experience of wondering what name to use at the store.

Be sure to dress appropriately!

Last, but not least, what's a blog makeover without some MaryKay make-up?
You can win eye shadow and lip gloss to add color to your own personal make-over!  Looking good while blogging is a must!


All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me which (if not all) of these fabulous prizes you'd like to win! That's it!
If you follow me, you'll automatically be entered twice!
I'll draw a name...or three on Friday night.

Good luck!

Thanks, Tauna!  Thanks, Camille!  Thanks, Jared!  Thanks, Moselle! Thanks, TaiPan.  And a big THANKS to my son, Dan!  He designed the filmstrip with all the pictures!

I love the new look--it's great.

I would go for the Mary Kay--since I can always use something that would help me look good ; )

LOL at the Wal-Mart pic.

Jenny said...

I love your new header! Very Very cute.

Well, I have my wal-mart outfit all picked out so I am going with the wal-mart gift card!

Although, that necklace would complement my outfit!

Kerin said...

Wow Connie!
Your blog looks terrific!!
How fun to have a new look and a blog button. I remember the sets by Bill Cosby. What a funny man :)
I remember listening to Bill Cosby on records!
You are so generous to have so many giveaways.
I would have to pick the gift card.... but in all honesty, I would more than likely re-gift it to one of our missionaries. They always need something :)

Hope you have a great day !!
Again... your blog looks terrific!!

Tracy said...

LOVE the new blog look...too much fun. Your button is pretty cute too!

Well, I'm thinking the Wal-mart gift card would be good. I promise I want go to Wal-mart looking like that...EVER!! ;-)

Garden of Egan said...

Woohoo!!! I love the header! It's so perfect.

Glad you were able to put it to good use! Camille is an awesome daughter by the way.

I'm just now putting my first batch of salsa in to process. I came here to figure out how long. Kimmie also told me I have to can your tomato soup. So I am doing that today too.

LOVE YOU!!!!
A gift card from Wally World would be awesome because I love going there and checking out people.
And I may or may not have taken pictures of a few with my camera phone.................

Barbaloot said...

I like the new look. And I love Bill Cosby. I will never get tired of watching The Cosby Show reruns:)

I think I'd pick the Wal-Mart gift card. And in my mind, I'll use it for something fun, but in reality, I'll probly use it for something practical.

Melanie said...

LOVE the new look!

I would have to say the make-up or the necklace. I am in serious need of both!

I had 1 necklace that my son just broke and all my make-up is soooooo old.

gigi said...

Hey you, this is the cutes blog ever! Love, love, love that header! It is perfect for you and also the pretty yellow. I'll now take your cute button and display it proudly :)

Mrs. Jones said...

I LOVE the new look of your blog! The vintage pics at the top are priceless! Congratulations on winning it!
I'd love all of the prizes, of course. But I think the WalMart one is my #1 choice! Mama needs a new pair of .... something... :)

Kristina P. said...

It looks adorable!

I have to admit, for $600, I would expect it to be able to type of your posts for you.

Camille said...

If your Mary Kay make-up makes me look as fancy as your blog re-did, sign me up!
P.S. That Dan is a talented young man with those mad Photoshop skillzz

Camille said...

And I have to agree with Kristina - $600 is a hefty amount to pay for just a header and canvas!

shirley said...

Very, very nice look, really like it, GC would be my pick, after all you can get(SEE) everything at Walmart.

Doran & Jody said...

I would like to please sign up for your Peach Jam drawing....oh wait, that one wasn't an option, was it.

Let's see...since I usually don't win drawings sign me up for any and all of them and tape my name to the side of the bowl you will pick from.

If I already have you on my side bar does that count for stalking...er I mean following you?

Cute blog of button!

Doran & Jody said...

Eh heh....Looks like I will enter the drawing for the APRICOT jam, NOT the Peach jam. :)

Valerie said...

Sweet!!! What an awesome blog design~ I love it!
Good job, Moselle...and
Dan did a great job, the filmstrip is fantastic.

I guess throw my name in the hat for the MK.

Tracy R said...

My choice would be the Walmart GC or the makeup. Thanks!

derwood9000 said...

Connie you are one lucky girl to win a prize while touring China. I could use the Walmart gift card for a new watch, as mine just bit the dust. My wife does`nt need MK as she has natural beauty even after sixty years of marriage. I could use the neckless to give to her because I did`nt give her anything for our 60th anniverasy.

Julie Harward said...

The blog looks so nice WOW! And what a nice give a way..Walmart for me! :D

I would love the necklace or the GC or makeup. Like the new blog set up. That Dan is pretty amazing!

Mikki said...

Awesome header!!!! I love it. Tell your son he did a great job! (oh, and the guys from Moselle too!)

So, tell me why did that chica even bother with the shorts to cover that swimsuit? I just don't get it.

I would love any of your prizes, but the wallyworld gift card would probably be the most useful.
And even though you didn't ask, my second fave would be the necklace.

meeyeehere said...

A trip to China AND a free new bloggy look! Lucky! And the new design is pretty cool. LOVE the film strip on top. Dan did a great job!
If you're giving things away, who am I to say no? MK is my lady, my make up and my joy. Which reminds me, I'm out of just about everything. Better call my dealer! :)

KC said...

Who doesn't LOVE a giveaway! WooHoo for the new design!

Darla said...

I like the necklace but I would also take a bottle of Lime-Away :-), I could clean my basement windows and then clean up and wear the necklace. It's all about being clean, lol :-).

We Don't Mean to Brag said...

I love your new blog look. How fun to win something while in China. If I could pick it's almost a toss up between the necklace and Wal Mart. Since I am such a selfless mom on a budget I will go with the necklace : )
