Little Window Shoppe: <br>A Sweet Bloggy Giveaway

One of the things I love most about blogging is the great community of women I have met. I have had the honor of connecting and working with amazing people in blogland. With all the struggles in today’s economy, there is no better time to bond together and support each other in any way we can. That is where blogging becomes real life, and I love that.

We all bring different things to the blog community (even YOU as a reader!). Whether your share your ideas & experiences, your talents,  products, services or do what you can to support and encourage others, I want to thank you all for the role you play in making blogland what it is.

We are in this together, and I am honored to work along side of you all in this great community.

    Hi Melissa….wow thanks for introducing Emily to us :-) Had trouble accessing her blog from the link above :-( NOT the Little Window Shoppe link near their picture ….the one where it says ….”introduce yourself when you visit her blog”

    I would love a Blog makeover, as I think mine is looking tired, and needs a bit new life added to it :-)

    I would love a blog makeover. I’m really new to the blogosphere and I am trying to learn the mechanics of it all. My blog is one of the cookie cutter templates that google offers. I’d love to have something fresh and new.

  13. Cassandra Louise

    I would venture to say that I am blog illiterate! I love the color green and flowers:) That is the furthest I was able to attempt on my blog. I would love a “fancy” face lift. One that extends my personality and be a part of who I am. Something unique. There are so many talented people! I am in awe of such creativity:)

  14. Shannan

    I am an avid blogger, but I am also a technophobe. I did the absolute minimum in “creating” my blog, so I could definitely use some help!

  15. Kris

    I would love a new blog design. Mine is a bit bland and I would love an extra sidebar. My blog walls are white, they need a bit of color to make it look more inviting. I’m going to check out her blog and blog designs. I love the fact that she promotes others. Like you said, in these tough times we all need to support one another.

    Have a happy day

    This is such a great prize! Her designs are so beautiful! I am a new blogger, though I’m really loving it. I’ve already done 76 posts in less than two months! I totally agree that it is a wonderful community of bloggers I’ve become a part of. I could really use this makeover because I’m still using a stale-looking blogger template as my background, which makes me blend in to a sea of blogs. I want to stand out. Also, I have plans for an upcoming name change for my blog, so it would be amazing to do a re-launch with a new name and new look! The more I think about this, the more excited I get! Thanks for this opportunity!

    I have been lurking behind your curtains for a while now – I LOVE your blog and you are one of my morning stops. I have also checked out Emily’s blog and thought I would love to renew my blog. I too am unsure how to get from the “template” blog to something cool that others (besides my family) want to visit on a regular basis.

    Serendipity calls and here she is offering a FREE makeover!

    Sign me up – and thank you for your wonderful blog.

    I LOVE a sweet little window shoppe. I NEED a new blog makevoer because….I use my blog to connect parts of myself and my family to friends and family all over the country.

A new blog makeover would help it represent ME, instead of being blogger bland ;)

    Hi, I adore your blog. Your site is so inspiring and the designs from Emily June, super sweet. I would love to have Emily June give my fairly new blog a makeover.

    I am new to the blogging world and can’t seem to figure out how it all works and how to get a good blogsite set up. I do have one but would really prefer to start fresh with a new one. By having one set up that looks great I would hope help me figure out the ins and outs of the actually website and where things are supposed to go and how to keep up with it daily. Thanks for offering such a great contest.

  54. Jean Beck

    Hello! I just found your site from One Pretty Thing… love the topiaries! I would also love to win a blog design from Emily! I currently don’t have a blog, because I’m afraid to jump in, since I’m “techie challenged.” But I’d LOVE to have one, since I am a papercrafter (cards, scrapbooks, etc.) and ATC artist, and would love to share and get comments. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

    OH, I would love to start a blog and I do need the help. I’m totally BLOG illiterate, but a quick learner! Remember when you started? Wouldn’t you love to help someone get started? Rebecca =)

  56. Michelle

    I’m a total newby in the blog world and I need help!! My blog is related to my ministry to women, ApronStrings Ministries and is called Taste and See… It’s intended to be a compliation of ‘I Love Lucy’ episodes of my life as well as the ‘Verse To Chew On’ entries where I share Bible based devotionals. My teenaged daughters laugh at my tech challenges, but I remind them that I was raised in the ‘flannel board’ (anyone remember those), generation and thus need all of the help I can get!!!!! =]

    This would be my kick in the pants to start my own blog. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, and a few of my friends have been encouraging me to start one too. I am also totally intimated by the technology. Emily’s style is beautiful, I couldn’t ask for a better start. Thanks for such a fantastic give-a-away – I’m so excited for the person that wins!

    What an exciting giveaway! I love Emily’s portfolio – clean, simple and beautiful. Perfect. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a personalized makeover for a while now – I have a freebie template someone made. It seems that during winter I got stuck with writer’s block. Having a blog design I am excited about could be a great way to jump out of my writing rut.

    Hello—-I feel really bad that you will have to read through all of the entries :'(–Just gonna be honest here and hope for the best! I am a relatively new blogger and am sooo excited. My family lives in Texas, Florida, Carolina and Michigan and thanks to blogging they are all able to keep up to date with my large family since we will not be able to make the family reunion this year. I have such great relatives who are so interested in our kids and how they are growing that we thought this is a wonderful tool to do that with. Although I have worked hard on my bog, I do feel that it is missing something. Emily June creates such perfectly lovely and feminine work, but unfortunately on our very tight budget not something I can splurge on at the moment. That is why this giveaway would be sooo perfect. Thanks for the opportunity to enter, got my fingers crossed!

I’m learning new things in the land of computers each day, but designing a blog is one thing I haven’t been able to master. I could sure use Emily’s help to design the blog that I’ve tried so many times to have. Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

  143. Emily

    I managed to find a cute blog background with a blinkie for free. It is nice but I would like something that reflects my personality a little better. I started blogging for my family & friends almost a year ago because we moved from Portland Or. to Dallas Tx. It was a huge move away from all our family & friends and so to be able to still let everyone feel like a part of our lives I have turned to blogging for “A Place To Share”! :) I have also started viewing other blogs that I am now following and have been so inspired by them. So I would like to make my blog be something I could easily post for family and friends but I would also like to have something that I could post for the creative side of me which is all about decorating cost efficiently (as my hubby likes to put it)! So we will see… I hope to be in that place soon! Thanks so much to all you bloggers for the inspiration you give!

    I’ve recently decided to join the blogging world. I have this idea that I know God has put on my heart to share with women. Especially those who are wives and mothers. It has to do with the Proverbs 31 women.
    Being a married mom of 4 boys ages 9,7,5 and 18months plus a fifth boy on the way makes blogging among other hobbies difficult. I’ve become overwhelmed with dressing up my blog. I would love to have some one help me launch my blog!
    If I can help just one person by inspiring them, encouraging them or up lifting them I would be so happy. I know this blog as well as many others keep me on cloud 9! I just want to spread the joy.

    So thank you to all you fantastic bloggers! You’ve all inspired this stay at home mom of four plus 1 to carve out time to inspire others through blogging.

    Ok, I have one blog running and would love to start a second one where I’d post images with inspirational quotes.

    I just started blogging and I’m feeling stifled by the layouts offered by the blogging site I’m using. The one I chose is just barely “okay”, but definitely not what I would choose given a better array of choices. I just feel pigeonholed and stymied by the layout as it is. I’m also such a newbie to this process and am trying to educate myself to use the “bells and whistles” available.

    Emily June has the most amazing variety of appealing, crisp, clean and workable blog layouts I’ve seen. What a wonderful thing to make this giveaway available to a lucky one of us! Crossed fingers and toes, crossed fingers and toes!

    I am in desperate need of blog design help… as intelligent as I think I am, not that I’m a super-brain or anything, but I am NOT dumb, for the life of me, I can’t figure this graphic design thing out! I’ve bought books, I’ve read articles, I’ve spent hours on the blog websites trying to manipulate things… I’m hopeless! It has stinted me to the point that I’m not blogging. I know that is terrible, and a really rotten excuse, but my creativity is just stifled by it. Not to mention, I’m depressed because this is one thing I can’t grasp.
