Moving On... :)

The time has come for me to take my embroidery business to the next level. That means I am going to have to bid farewell to creating blogs. I just don't have the time to do both and have enough time to devote to my family and church the way I want to.

If you are looking for a wonderful blog designer with prices very close to the same thing I have been charging please check out my friend Becky's designs.

Becky's designs are gorgeous! I just know you will love what she can do to "Spiff" your blog with her own unique style. She is using her blog design business to help pay for their second adoption so please check out her site!

Just click on the graphic or go to Lady In Waiting Blog Designs .

Now, if you are in need of some oh-so-cute embroidered and monogrammed items, then come by and check out my little shoppe at eBay. I had my shoppe hosted away from eBay but I wasn't getting the traffic I needed so for now we are hanging our shingle out over at eBay. We will be moving back over to our own site later on. The Monogrammed LadyBug That link will take you straight over to my shoppe or you can click on the cute graphic below. Come on over and visit!

Thank you so very much to everyone who allowed me to Spiff your blog! I absolutely LOVED being a part of your family's stories! I have many headers left to post for the blogs I have created recently. I promise I will get those links up for all of you just as soon as I can.

Thank you again! Blessings to all of you!

Price Increase April 13, 2008

Due to the time it is taking for me to spiff blogs, I am having to increase my prices. I hate to do it but since I am a stay-at-home mom and this is my way of adding to our family's income, I need to make it worth my time to continue. Beginning April 13 the price for a Spiffy Blog will increase to $45 and a header will be $25.

My oldest son Joshua will be receiving his BA from the Art Institute in a few months. He is majoring in Web Design and Interactive Media. He is going to be teaching me some of his design techniques and tricks. (A return on our investment? LOL) So, I can honestly say that Spiffy Blogs will be improving with each and every lesson. I'm so excited about learning more about digital media from him.

So, if you are interested in having your blog spiffed for $30, please order before April 13 to lock in this price.

Also, I am back to embroidering and monogramming again. If you haven't seen my new site, check it out! The Monogrammed LadyBug I have a wonderful husband who helps me out with the embroidery business. I am so blessed! We have many new items that we will be listing in the next couple of weeks. I've got some new lunch totes, new designs and a fresh new line of sibling shirts!

Thank you so very much to all of you who have allowed me to spiff your blog! It has been so much fun working with the photos of all of these adorable children and beautiful families.

Hugs to all!
Sharon :)

A Sweetie Pie & A Crooked Crown

I had the honor of designing the blog for Children's House International's "Travis". I have loved him and advocated for him ever since the first day I saw that sweet, dimpled face on their waiting child list. "Travis" was prominently displayed on our refrigerator door and I prayed, prayed, prayed for this little cherub's family to find him.......and they have! His name will now be Hugh and his adoring family just can not wait to bring him home!

"A Crooked Crown" is the blog of Dana. She'd emailed me several times about spiffing her blog and finally decided to do it. She loves her new blog and even sent me an email saying I am a "digi-genius". Wow! That was a great compliment to receive! :)

I will contact the winner immediately after the drawing and we will get busy creating your SPIFFY BLOG! One entry per person, please.
Good luck to all!!!

This family's blog is private so there is no link embedded in this photo but I was given permission to show off this cute header I made for them! I love it!

Give The Gift Of A Spiffy Blog!

I have been asked if Spiffy Blogs or Spiffy Headers can be given as a gift to another family. Yes, yes, of course! You just pay for their Spiffy Gift through PayPal.

Next, you have two options:
1.) You can choose the scrapbooking kit for your friend and together we will create their Spiffy Blog or Header in my top secret Spiffy Blog Test Zone. When it is finished, you can send them a link to show them what their new Spiffy Blog will look like when I install the HTML into their own blog. What a great surprise!

2.)You can let your friend choose their own digital scrapbooking kit, purchase it for them and then I will work with them on designing their perfect blog or header.

When we traveled in July we were given the gift of an amazing website by friends who knew that a nice website just wasn't in our budget. I remember how thrilled I was that these friends thought so much of us that they wanted to do something so special just for us.

Please let me know if I can be of assistance!

Kristen's Blog

As Valentine's Day approaches romance is in the air. I created this new blog for my daughter.

Katie & Sarah

I can't take the credit for this header. Katie and Sarah's mom made this one herself and I spiffed up her background and borders for her.
