#Bloggiesta Ole!

It's Blogger Template Giveaway Time!

Perfect timing with Bloggiesta, I am partnering with hugely talented designer, Dana Fox of The Wonder Forest and owner of Envye Design Shop.  

Dana is giving away one of her gorgeous Blogger templates, so don't pass up this chance to win one!

Bloggiesta is a fantastic time to rethink your blog design, clean up sidebars and posts, prettify things and do all manner of housekeeping. But design is one of those things that you either approach with joy ... or dread. With one of Dana's designs, I have a feeling that you'll look at your blog with a smile!


Giveaway is open worldwide. No purchase necessary. Ends September 30th, 2014. No substitutions or cash value.

I know everyone is excited to see what they can win, so let's start with that:

Juliet: My personal favourite with its watercolour elements, I actually won this one in Dana's past giveaways and use it on a personal blog.

Anastasia: This one's got an image slider at the top ... and I love its sedate classiness.

Sand and Sea: A more recent design, I love the cool summer and bohemian feel of this template. Did you notice I have a thing for watercolour designs?
Chalk It Up: A darker template, but with Dana's trademark handmade vibe.

White Space: Are you a minimalist? Then this template may tickle your fancy!
