New Buttons and 2 Giveaway Reminders

I am excited to show you a couple of new items on my blog.  Megan, from A Bird in Hand Designs, created new buttons for easy access to my Twitter, Instagram, and Bloglovin' accounts.  I'd love it if you would follow me on any or all of these, if you are not already.  She also added a couple of headings on my sidebar and a "Return to Top" button.

If you are thinking about redesigning your blog or starting one up, I highly recommend Megan.  Not only did she give me an awesome design, but she was a huge help with some questions I had when I first started  blogging.

On that note, if you are thinking of starting a blog this summer, you should definitely do it!  It is probably the best professional development I have ever had.  Besides, it's so much fun!  I have come to really value the professional relationships and friendships that I have formed from blogging.

I also wanted to remind you of two fabulous giveaways that are still going on.  Alison from Rockin' and Lovin' and Learnin' is giving away a $50 gift card to Amazon to celebrate 500 followers.  Awesome!

Today is the final day for a giveaway from Jessica at Literacy Spark.  She has raffled off several great prizes this week.  Today, you can win $10 from her awesome TPT store.

Make sure to stop by both of these blogs.  I enjoy reading both of them!

Have a great weekend!

  3. Your new updates look really cute! I'm always jealous of how bright and fun your blog is because they are all my favorite colors. Thank you for the shout out for the giveaway. Maybe I should give myself $50 to Amazon too for my milestone. Lol! Hope you win! :) xoxox
