Laura Jane Designs Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Winning comment is #66!





Have you noticed my new blog design? Before working with Laura from Laura Jane Designs, I did all of my own design work. Of course, since I am not a professional designer, my blog design left much to desire, but I was doing the best I could with the limited amount of knowledge I had. With Laura's help, my blog now has a brand new and exciting look! I hope you like it as much as I do!

The designing process was super easy for me-- after all, it was Laura who had to do all of the hard work ;). I gave her a list of the colors I like and the type of images/designs I have in mind. Being a fan of cupcakes, I really wanted something with cupcakes. I am known as the mom who bakes cupcakes for the kids for playdates, and a few of my friends are fans of my cupcakes. Little yummy treats that's personalized, what's not to love about that?! After giving Laura some of the basic information, she went to work. She was awesome to work with. She updated me every step of the way. She made sure that I was happy with the each design before she moved further along. In general, she was just a fantastic designer to work with. In the end, her design was even better than I expected. My experience with Laura has been so thoroughly pleasant that I will definitely want to work with her again in the future if my blog needs a redesign-- although I am so happy with the way it looks right now, I can't see that happening any time soon :).

Do you have a blog that needs a redesign? Or, are you starting your own blog? Check out the design packages Laura offers on her Laura Jane Designs site. If you place an order between August 12th and August 31st, you will be able to get $10 off a blog design order over $30. Please enter the promo code: SUGARPOPS

Many thanks to Laura. She has generously offered 1 design package to one of my lucky readers, so you too can have a customized website. The giveaway winner will receive the Tulip package (a $45 value) along with a kit up to $7 to use for the design.
