Celebrating a New Look (& Special Giveaway!!!}



We took a little time last week to give this space a brand new FRESH look that I was able to design when I had a bit of free time.  We hope that you love it as much as we do--this blog has had a few different looks in the past but we plan on sticking with this one for awhile! We are also looking forward to another exciting year  together with you (we have ALOT planned!).

And to celebrate we are going to have a giveaway! Will you celebrate with us?

We will be giving away a pretty SURPRISE Lilla Rose clip of our choice:


They are charming, practical, and super easy to use....


AND one FREE blog critique from our blog consulting business, Wise Woman Consulting, which teaches women how to monetize their blogs and earn income and how to advertise (great extra cash for the holidays)which also got a bit of a similar makeover:


You can read more details and what we offer here.

and  Michelle Duggar NEWEST DVD on Hospitality from Michelle Duggar:



The description: Filmed at a special ladies’ tea in San Antonio, Texas, and hosted by Beall Phillips, this film gives you an intimate 40 minutes with Michelle as she shares down-to-earth, sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-tugging, examples of what hospitality looks like in the Duggar household. This transparent peek at Michelle’s personal experiences and lessons learned will give you new insights into executing biblical hospitality in your home as Michelle reveals the good, the bad, and the funny about mother-of-nineteen hospitality!



 You can join  the giveaway here:





 
Hope you win!

Ever since I found your blog about 4 months ago, I have absolutely been in love with every aspect of it...I am always blessed, encouraged, challenged and inspired by your ministry here more than I can say. In fact, I have been inspired so much as to want to use my own God-given gifts in the same way...because of that, I would most like to win the blog consultation. We have always been a one-income family, and my husband is recently laid-off, which has only stirred my heart more toward wanting to be able to contribute financially to my home, as well as to bless others. May the Lord richly bless you as you minister so beautifully to so many! In Him, Theresa G.

Stacy @ A Delightful Home said...

It looks beautiful! I love the header image. So lovely.

Mrs. June Fuentes said...

Thank you, Sarah Mae! I got a chance to watch your video at Allume--great job!

Many blessings, friend!

Thank you for running this Giveaway. Lilla Rose clips are not only very pretty, but also very tough! I would love to win one in a really bright design. I follow the Duggars avidly and find Michelle helpful and inspiring, so I'd love the win the DVD too!(How I pray for a 'soft answer' to turn away wrath!) And as I have a new blog www(dot)heartforhome-making(dot)blogspot(dot)co.uk, I could truly do with some consulting! But I think that Michelle's DVD would be the one I'd most like to win because Hospitality is not something that I find easy, and I feel that God is nudging me in that direction as a way of strengthening and bonding with families and neighbours.
I like the new look of your blog. It's fresh and bright.

Congratulations on your blog make-over. No doubt, all that you do is given due rigor and consideration. I have enjoyed your posts on Christian womanhood, motherhood and the beauty of home. I live a quiet and hidden life of home, hearth, and service so I would not be able to make a public proclamation of liking you, but please accept my compliments here. I am always edified to be in the company of those who seriously pursue God and see sacrifice as both beautiful and redeeming. God bless you as you balance as your enterprise.
