Working Mom Wednesday *BONUS*: DCR Design

Working Mom Wednesday *BONUS*: DCR Design 1Do you need a makeover? I'm giving one away here today. No, not the hair, make-up, and clothing kind (although that would be fun - maybe I'll do that in the future). The Blog Kind!

Maybe you're a new blogger who wants to make a name for yourself. Or perhaps you're a more experienced blogger who has been admiring the snazzy designs of your blog friends from afar. Or perhaps you are a power blogger who is tired of your old design. Whoever you are, you really have to check out DCR Design.

DCR Design is the brainchild of Jo-Lynne - a humorous, fun-loving, fashionista and mother of three who blogs at Musings of a Housewife (a blog that I read almost every day, by the way). Jo-Lynne recently launched DCR Design as a way to generate income for handbags and new shoes (er, her household...) and as a way to get in touch with her creative side.

Her designs are fun and fabulous. If you take a look at her designs, you'll think she's been doing this forever. But her biz is actually really new (she opened for business in early March). Her prices are reasonable and her talent is obvious.

If you're looking for a brand-spanking-new blog design, check out DCR Design.

WIN IT! One mama will win a Complete Blog Makeover from DCR Design! To enter, simply leave a comment explaining why you should be the lucky winner on this post prior to Wednesday, April 2 at midnight (don't forget to follow the rules). The winner will be announced and contacted on Thursday, April 3. * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

*UPDATE* The winner is #8 Brines. Congratulations! I can't wait to see your new look after Jo-Lynne gives "you" a makeover.

  1. I would love to win this! I've only recently become really aware of the "blogosphere" during my maternity leave - and now I want to be part of the conversation! I'm a devoted reader of many wonderful mom-blogs, and I'm ready to explore my own bloggy side a bit. Jo-Lynne's designs are gorgeous, and I would love to start out with a fabulous look. Thanks!


  2. I am STILL working on my blog (well...hubby is taking over very very snail like!). I could use some of her assistance!! I really like the " Are A Few of my Favorite Things" design!!!!

  3. I have never seen such beautiful blog designs!! I would be absolutely thrilled to get my blog made over by Jo-Lynne. I became a blogger only two weeks ago, and since then, blog writing has been helping to keep my brain cells from getting crusty. Even if I don't win, I'd definitely consider purchasing a blog make-over from her if I start to make a mark "the blog world"!

  4. I'd love to win this as a gift for my friend who's been wanting a redesign from her quickly-chosen Blogger template. :)


  5. I would love to win. I just started blogging in Jan. I can just imagine a blog header with a cartoon rendition of me holding hands with two silly girls in tutus and one in pigtails. I really don't know how to do it myself and right now my blog is just plain, very plain.

  6. I would LOVE to win this.

    My reasons?

    * Six kids.
    * Single mom.
    * Work fulltime out of the home.
    * Work fulltime in the home.
    * I'd love to stay home and work fulltime from home with my little ones.
    * My artistic bone is in the written word and stage, NOT in visual art. I'd love someone who could see things beyond what I can.
    * I'd be eternally grateful, even if it only means that it looks pretty for my bloggy friends.

    This is a lovely giveaway! Huge kudos for taking on the endeavour!

    Warm Blessings ~Lilith~

  7. Okay, I did design in school, too. Not that you would know it from looking at my blog. I finally figured out how to make a button and it looks like a "hang in there" poster from the Scholastic catalog. Help.

  8. Really, total laziness on my husband and I both have design backgrounds and are completely capable...I'm too nit picky when I'm designing so I take too long, and my husband does it all day and is too exhaust to work on my silly little stuff!! Being creative is hard work, I'd love to pass it on to some else for my blogs!

  9. I need a blog makeover! Mine is so ordinary and needs a spark! I've been blogging for over a year and I love it. I'm a blog-aholic! I've been looking into changing some things up but just don't have the time to get it done. Count me in!!

  10. This might sound lame, but I need to win this because I don't have a blog yet. I'd love to start one, but it's kind of overwhelming being a mom, balancing everything else in the family, and then starting a blog. I understand every other blog-starting mom has the same issues, but it's still what I'm dealing with. So if I could begin with an amazing design from Jo-Lynne, my blog would start off with a bang and I would feel like a million bucks! Thanks for the chance! gumbi1313 at msn dot com

  11. Ooooh, just what I need (especially since I'm slightly challenged at this sort of thing.)I would love to be the winner of this to make my blog look more lively and colorful. I try to make my posts interesting, but I think that this would really spice things up!
