Celebrating My New Look with a Giveaway!

*Updated to add: Comments are now closed! I will announce the winners of the giveaway tomorrow. Thank you all so much for participating!

Ta Da! Welcome to the new look of Buzzings of a Queen Bee! Don't you just love love love it? OK, you don't have to use that many "loves" but seriously, how great do I look? I owe this gorgeousness to Jessica of This, That and Your Blog. She totally captured "me" in blog form (or at least, how I'd like to think of me...just maybe not first thing in the morning!). If you are in the market for a little blog renovation, go and visit Jessica. She is talented, sweet, and flat out amazing. I have loved working with her.

So now that I have this whole new look, how about a giveaway to celebrate?

How much do you love my new key chain? Isn't it sweet? Lisa Leonard, of Lisa Leonard Designs, sent me this little beauty. Girl knows how much I love anything monogrammed! I am so sassy now...this key chain makes my mama-style Honda Pilot keys look a lot more exciting!

And Lisa is such a peach...she sent me these adorable earrings just because! (Do you think it's really that she fell in love with my new bathroom color and thought my accessories should match? Can't say I blame her.)

Anyway, to celebrate my new blog look, Lisa has agreed to gift two lucky readers with her unique creations. Each winner will be able to choose between a key chain like mine (with your own monogram, of course!) or these fancy-dancy earrings.

What should you do to enter? Just leave me a comment. Couldn't be simpler, could it?

I will accept comments until 8 p.m. Mountain Time on Thursday, October 15. Check back at the end of the week to see if you've won! (And to see what else I've been up to!)

I love your blog. i can't remember how I cam across it, though. :b I'm not very creative, but I can copy someone else's ideas. You have so many cool ideas. And, also, I read "Grace-based Parenting" b/c you said it was a favorite of yours. Very good book. Gave me good parenting ideas, and also, in a weird way, made me sad b/c growing up, my family didn't have a lot of grace. Thanks for the recommendation.
