Today is the first day of contests over at Bloggy Giveaways! Don’t forget to go over and check out all of the amazing prizes that you can enter to win.

I am going to be running one contest this week, and it’s pretty much just for bloggers (sorry to non-bloggers out there!). The contest will be open for entries all week and a winner will be randomly drawn on Friday, April 25th.

I’ve had a lot of compliments on the custom header that my hubby, Ron, made for my blog – and on the previous one, which he also made. He’s made a header for my friend Kristi as well. Ron’s background and training are in graphic design and web design, and I happen to think that he’s quite talented. 🙂

I’ve talked him into letting me offer a custom header graphic to one lucky winner this week. Details can be worked out between him and the winner, but he did ask for a few simple rules. The winner will provide up to 5 photos to be considered for inclusion in the header (or portions of the photos, and preferably one will be an action shot), and the color scheme (a screen shot would be ideal). Ron will have creative license to choose 2 to 3 photos to crop and use in the header, and he will choose the font(s). He’s very easy to work with – and I’ve pretty much loved everything he’s made for me right away. He’ll provide the header as a graphic file, and if you need help with how to display it at the top of your blog, I know how to do so in Blogger and WordPress and can help with that.

If you want to see samples of things he’s done, you can look at the header here at Mom of 3 Girls, my former header, which is still up at my old Blogspot address, Kristi’s header over at Music Mom of 2, and his own websites: 21 Sundays and Terran Three Productions.

So here’s what you need to do if you’d like to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me what kind of theme or design you would want in your header (just a general idea, and you won’t be held to that if you win). No saying just “enter me” or something like that though. And this may go without saying, but please don’t enter if you don’t have a blog or website where you can display the custom header if you win.
  2. Please make sure you leave a valid e-mail address or other way to reach you if you win.
  3. Linking back to this contest page is not required, but you’re welcome to if you would like.
  4. One comment only, please – multiple comments will be discarded and not included in the final drawing.
  5. Comments will be left open until noon Eastern time on April 25th.
  6. A winner will be drawn by random number generator on April 25th and notified by e-mail. This post will also be updated to state who the winner is.

Good luck! 🙂

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

The random number generator has selected comment #7 as the winner of a new custom blog header, courtesy of my hubby. That means that Snowbird is the winner – congratulations! I’ll be sending you an e-mail and Ron will be getting with you soon to talk over details.  🙂

Thanks to everyone who entered!
