Redbud Designs Giveaway (and announcing my new blog!)

I am so excited to announce my new blog "view behind the picket fence". It is a blog showcasing photos of the fun and random adventures of my little family. I wanted a place where I could upload a dozen photos of Collin's attempts at crawling or eating spaghetti, or whatever, without wondering if I was overdoing it. Since it is going to be mainly photos, it will be perfect for printing into a family album. If you have a chance, head over and check it out.

The best part about the blog is that it was designed by Redbud Designs. A while back I was blog stalking and I came upon the most beautiful blog header I had ever seen. I traced it back to Sharon at Redbud designs and spent over an hour gawking over her amazing designs. Ever since then I knew I had to have a blog designed by her.

I contacted her a month ago, explaining a little bit of what I wanted. (She has a bit of a waiting list, so you have to get in touch early) She asked me a few questions and before I knew it, I had exactly what I had envisioned...only so much better.

Not only did she design me a new blog, but a sidebar button for natalie's sentiments! The sidebar button is the most basic blog accessory and my old one was just not up to par. Check it out at the end if this post and in my left hand sidebar. I know you want to add it to your blog :)
Sharon from Redbud Designs has graciously offered to design one of you a sidebar button for you blog! It could be one for your personal blog (like mine) or one for your creative blog, or maybe a button for your etsy store. It is a great way to get more readers and just to dress things up a bit.
Want to win?

There are 4 ways to enter:
