IceyDesigns – New Look + Your Chance to Win!

IceyDesigns has a new look! What do you think?

I’ve been wanting to move from Blogger to a self-hosted site for a loooong time, but never had the chance until now. Because it takes a lot of time, y’know.

For those of you who didn’t know, IceyDesigns is my outlet for blog/web designing. I’ve designed a few blogs, all of which can be seen on my Portfolio page.

Now for the good stuff!
To celebrate the move and my new design,
I’m giving away a free blog design to one lucky blogger!

The Prize:
One “The Deluxe” blog package (worth $130)
Click here to see what’s included in the package

The Rules:
You must have a Blogger blog to win (sorry WordPress blogs!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Hafsah Faizal is a YA author, designer, and blogger. Her designs have graced the sites of New York Times bestselling authors, bloggers, and more. She resides in Texas, with her family.
