Build A Beautiful Blog Week Giveaway - Mary Mary Quite Contrary Design Shop

When Mary Hess, owner of Mary Mary Quite Contrary Design Shop, started blogging 5 years ago, she was intrigued by the "gadgets" and various design options. Like many famous entrepreneurs, necessity is the main reason she started the business and wanted to earn income for her family. She is a wife, mother, business owner (multiple) and musician. But most of all she is a child of God.

Mary's advice for someone who is considering a blog makeover is:
  • really think about your favorite colors
  • decide how "busy" you want your blog to look - themes, taglines
  • the better prepared you are when you approach a designer, the easier the process becomes.
Here's a sample of two beautiful designs from Mary Mary Quite Contrary Design Shop. Please visit her site to see more!
TWO lucky winners will receive a Level 3 Design Package (a $75 value) containing a 2 or 3 Column Template; Custom Background; Custom Header; Custom Signature; Up to 6 Custom Sidebar Picture Headers; Custom Font for Post Title and Sidebar; Navigation Bar under Header (text only).

Main entry:

  88. I learned that her Level 1 packages are only $35. Also, I saw something she might want to change. She has "Your Ad Here" buttons on the sidebar, but when you click on them they don't go to a page which tells about how to advertise there (which is what I would think would happen if I clicked on one). She might want to change that.
