A Thankful Giveaway (or TWO!)

Welcome to The Road Home.  I hope you like it here as much as I do!  There are a couple of people I need to say thank-you to before doing anything else.

And what better way to say thank-you than with a giveaway TWO giveaways!

So, first, I will say thank-you to Kelsey!  She did the design work and surpassed my imagination BIG TIME!  She also did my the design on Feel my Love and I wanted to keep a similar look (or at least colors).  I knew she would be able to make it amazing - and I think she did.

And second, I will say thank-you to Kim!  She provided the photo for the background and it is exactly what I pictured when I started thinking about this blog.  She has an amazing eye behind the lens and I'm so grateful to her for sharing her gift with me.

So, what am I giving away?

1)  A blog makeover from Kelsey.  She will transform your blog and I know you will LOVE it as much as I love mine.

2)  A 5x7 photo of your choosing from Kim.  The final print will be matted and signed to a final size of 8x10.

And, how do you enter?

Lots of ways - do one, some, or all - it's up to you!
1 - comment on this post for one entry.
2 - follow this {new} blog for one entry (leave a second comment saying you are a follower)
3 - tweet about the giveaway (leave a third comment saying you did it).
4 - blog about the giveaway with links to Kelsey and Kim for THREE entries (leave 3 more comments saying you did it).  (Doesn't need to be it's own post, can be included with another post.)
5 - visit Kelsey, check out her work and tell us what you think you'd like her to do with your blog in a comment on this post.
6 - visit Kim's Flickr PhotoStream, pick your favorite (it will be tough) and let us know which photo you picked in a comment on this post.

Most importantly, how do you win?

You have until Thursday at 9:00pm Eastern Standard Time to enter as many ways/times as you'd like.

That evening, I will use Random.Org to generate 2 winning numbers and will post the winners on Friday!  The first winner will win their choice of either the blog makeover OR the photo, and the second winner will get the other.

Thank-you for visiting my new 'home'!

Enjoy checking out the awesome work done by both Kelsey and Kim - and good luck!

**Disclaimer:  I did not receive compensation of any kind in exchange for either of the giveaways.**

  10. There are so many pictures to love, but if I can only pick one, I'm going with picture 316/365 on Kimi's website: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kimberlyfaye/5170779076/

    It reminds me of my days in WV and I love fall scenes.

  11. I checked out Kelsey's site! Wow, i bet there is so much she could do with my blog. I'm only good at writing (and even that can be suspect ;) ) and have NO creativity when it comes to making my blog pretty or anything! I could see her fitting in some religious photos or icons for me on my blog, get a photo of my family in there somewhere and maybe help me add some sidebar stuff with prayers, etc. I would LOVE to win this giveaway since I know that if i have to pay for it...I probably wouldn't...at least right now. :)

  19. I wanted to say that I also like this photo of Kimi's: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kimberlyfaye/2484765874/

    Mostly I like the title: The Mountains Don't look like this in WV. As someone who used to live East and now lives West, I have uttered that exact same phrase. =)
