New Look....WooBox, & Fundraising Opportunity!

Hey, I have a new look....and I love, love, love it!!! I'm in love with the shades of blue.....and the lovely gal!  It's still not completely "custom," but I'm moving up the it does have some custom features added by me and I actually paid for this one! A whopping 6 bucks! Those that visit my blog, know that I have desperately been wanting a new look, but I'm just too cheap to pay alot of $$$ for it. 

Upon stumbling across this design, I ran across an awesome deal though from Megan at "A Bird in Hand Designs." She is not only talented but brilliant! She has come up with a "Build Your Own Blog Design Package," that is truly brilliant and affordable! Only $25! If you're looking for a new and custom design, you have to check it out! 

So then hours later after getting my blog the way I wanted it, I realized, "Oh crap, now I have to change my buttons on my TpT store, my TN shop, Google +, FB, and Pinterest! Yikes!!! All day project! But, in the process I discovered and did a couple of cool things! You can now view my Pinterest Boards without even leaving my FB page! See the "P" on my page?

All you do is in the FB search bar, type in Woobox! And a page app installer will appear (wouldn't allow me to do a screenshot of this) and then add what you want to your FB page. It actually pulls up your pins right on your page without navigating to pinterest!

 Pretty cool huh? You can also add the giveaway tab here if you don't have that on your page yet. 

I also added an "ongoing linky parties" tab to my new look. So you can easily find linky parties here, or link up your own if you are hosting an ongoing party each week or month! Check it out! Feel free to email me any other parties you know of that I don't have listed and I will add them! 

Fundraising Ideas
I also got asked and paid to add this advertisement to my blog and you can too! I'm planning to use them to do a fundraiser or two at our school next year! We lost our PTO committee a year ago and boy did we feel it this year! So, some of us teachers are going to initiate our own fundraisers next year so we can hopefully bring back some of the assemblies and events our students missed out on this year. This company has some AWESOME fundraising opportunities for your school! Be sure to check them out! They are also looking for other bloggers willing to put this on their sidebar and will pay (it's not much) but they will pay you $5 to display it for six months. Email me if you're interested!!!

And Walmart has CHEVRON!!!! 
 They also had black/white and bright primary colors!And when uploading this picture I ran across this photo that I had not seen yet and couldn't resist sharing!
