New Product for Father's Day!

Is your husband a Daddy-to-be this Father's Day? Looking for a fun, unique way to incorporate the little one on the way? We've got the perfect option!

Take a look at our new Father's Day Ultrasound photo.


Unique Father's Day Gift


Each photo is unique, because we use YOUR ultrasound pictures to create it, and use the colors and theme that you want to personalize it just for the daddy to be. And it's all paired beautifully with one of the sweetest Father's Day poems you can find.

We will design the photo, and send the digital image to you. You can then upload the file to any photo lab you prefer. (The file will be scaled to the size you select in your order.) We will also include the copyright release form so that the lab doesn't give you any trouble when you have it printed.

Or, if you'd prefer, we'll design the print, and upon approval, we'll print it, mount it, include a gorgeous gift box, and ship it right to your door.

Make Father's Day extra special this year with a gift he'll never forget.

Here is another sample - click to make it larger.

Order them on our website: Father's Day Ultrasound Photo (Print Yourself) or Father's Day Ultrasound Photo (We'll Print It)

New Blog Services: Complete Blog Networking Set Up

I am *so* excited to offer a new service to my clients: Complete Blog Networking Set Up.

If you want to show your readers - and potential sponsors - that you are serious about being a blogger and want to be as professional as possible, this is the best way to start.

Here's what you'll get with this package:
  • A twitter account for your blog with a twitter background that matches your blog.
  • A facebook fan page for readers to become a fan.
  • Social networking buttons linking to your rss feed, your twitter account, your facebook fan page, digg, technorati, stumbleupon, and your linked in profile in your sidebar, along with a "subscribe by email" option.
  • a Stat Counter account to track your monthly site visits and more.
  • a feedburner account to track readership.
  • a whos.amung.us button to see how many are online.
  • a "tweet this" button in the top right corner of your posts.
  • social networking buttons along the bottom of each post for readers to submit your posts to networking websites.
  • a custom 125x125 button to match your blog design and a "grab my button" section for readers to easily grab the html code to place your button on their website.
  • a media kit in pdf form to submit to pr agencies and potential sponsors. (Includes one time set-up fee. Changes and updates will incur additional costs.)
This is the must-have package for any serious, professional blogger. Let us help you get everything you need all in one shot!

Please note: This does not need to be purchased with a blog design. It can be purchased individually. However, if you purchase a blog design, this must be purchased in addition to it, as these services are not offered with all of the blog designs. (The Ultra Professional Blog design includes social networking buttons along the bottom of each post, but that's it.)

New Blog Design Project: Super Mom Sanctuary

Another recent design project I did was for a blog called Super Mom Sanctuary. This blog is actually run by me, and holds a very special place in my heart.

Here's a little bit about Super Mom Sanctuary:
Created by a Christian mom of 5, Super Mom Sanctuary was started as a place to bring rest and refuge to other Christian moms. Life can be overwhelming. Here at Super Mom Sanctuary, you can put the worries and stresses of life aside and focus on rejuvenating your heart and soul. Our goal is to help you build a real relationship with Christ and to really understand that we "can do all things through Christ." (Philippians 4:13)

I hope that you'll stop by Super Mom Sanctuary, check out the design, and then come back often.

New Blog Design Project: The Interactive Marketer

Last night, I officially finished up Jim Lefevere's new blog look over on The Interactive Marketer. This was a fun challenge for me. I've worked with lots of moms, but this was the first man's blog I've had the opportunity to do.

Here's a little about Jim's blog, The Interactive Marketer:
You'll find insights, analysis and punditry related to digital strategy, interactive marketing, connected health, and the future of marketing. If it is an opinion you seek, an opinion you will find.

I may veer off course occasionally to discuss my other interests, including: ND football, IU basketball, food, travel and my family

Stop on over and check out his new look today!

New Blog Design Project: One 2 Try

One 2 TryI recently had the opportunity to work with Rita of One 2 Try on a new look for her blog. She already had a 125x125 button that she wanted to match as much as possible. What do you think? Don't they coordinate beautifully?

Here's how Rita describes herself:
I am a stay at home wife. I enjoy the internet and all the information available. I enjoy chocolate and watching the Food Network. My family consists of my husband, a spoiled dog and 2 cats. My goal with this blog is to have fun trying new food related items. It may be a new place to eat or a new kitchen gadget. I might list a recipe or two. I might mention a new cookbook. I will list some of the coolest giveaways to enter and try to win. I will give reviews of products I have tried. There is so much out there to try. My goal is one new thing everyday. You have to try it to see if you like it, then go back for more.
Stop by One 2 Try and check out her fabulous new look!

New Design Project: Barefoot Mommies

Barefoot MommiesI recently had the opportunity to work with Barefoot Mommies on a new look for their blog. I had so much fun working on this "beachy" theme, especially since it's so stinking cold outside right now!

Here's a little information about Barefoot Mommies:
Here at Barefoot Mommies we pride ourselves on a unique outlook of Family Friendly Products geared towards moms and children. We know that the more you promote, the more word gets around. And that’s what we do best!

Stop by and check them out their new look today. And, yes, I know they have a wordpress blog. I know that I state on my website that I only offer services to those with Blogger, but I'm thinking about changing that.

What do you think? (About the design, about also offering wordpress services... about anything!)
