The Big Reveal & A Giveaway!

Giveaway is now CLOSED! Thanks to all who entered.

After weeks of much hair pulling and becoming more intimately involved with CSS and HTML than I ever wanted to be, I am ready to reveal my super secret project- My new blog design!

In order to celebrate the new monkey-tasticness of it, I've decided to giveaway a monkey to one of you lucky lucky people. Even better, I will customize him (or her) especially for you! What YOU need to do is tell me what type of monkey you'd ask for if you won.

Need some ideas?

I've also found some new fuzzy socks to make monkeys from!

Fuzzy Monkey

Again, to enter all you need to do is comment on THIS post (if you're reading via the RSS feed, click through and make sure to comment on the post) and tell me what kind of monkey you'd like if you won. If it's wildly complex, you might need to give me some time to work my magic! I'll ship worldwide and use the random number generator to pick a winner. Giveaway ends March 17, 2010.

Good luck!

I really like the new layout! Somehow when I moved over to google reader from bloglines I lost your RSS feed! So glad I came back to check the layout and realized I'd not seen posts in a while. Re-subbed now :)

I WANT A MONKEYYYYYYYYYYY!

Enter Me!! You mean we'd actually have to choose one that we like the most? That would be hard because I LOVE them all... but any one that is colorful would work for me :)

YOu did a fabulous job on your new look.. I love the colors and I love the stripes- very cheerful and very spring! Great job!

Don't you just LOVEEE (or is it Loathe?) CSS and HTML? when you can get it to do what you want it to it's great. I have four blogs that I need a new look for, one of which is a niche blog that I haven't started on yet, but I own the domain. It will come though. I wish I had the time to work on layouts but I just don't have the time with work and I get so OCD with that kind of stuff that i want it done yesterday. One of these days though, or I'll pay someone to do it :)

*hugs* Great job!

I love your new BLOG LOOK! It is great! I like suprises so I would not want to pick a monkey!

ElleBee said...

So cute! I love the baby monkey. :)

Tumbleweed Trails said...

Wow! I am so impressed with your blog design. I am just so tickled with the color combination and your header. Even the colors in the two monkeys you chose for the header match the background color so perfectly!!! Looking at this is as good as eating Cotton Candy. Maybe even better.

Thanks for celebrating with a lil monkey giveaway. How fun! My DH could tell you how I've always wanted a pet monkey. Hmm, I like surprises so I'd like the design to be a surprise if I were to win the lil treasure. It would be fun to have you read my blog title and my "About Me" and see what you come up with.

Congrats on getting your html code etc. all figured out to present such a wonderful blog layout. I'm clueless on how you go about any of it...and boy oh boy does my blog need a background and all.

I love the new design and all the details. I have to tell you though that it becomes addictive - changing the blog. About every 6 months I get bored with what I have and I feel the need to change it.

I love them all but I guess my faves would be the furry monkeys, mostly because they look like they would be more cuddly.

Erika said...

Love the new look. A farmer monkey or a rainbow monkey thats if you could find a rainbow sock.

But it doesn't really matter either they are all cute. You are very creative with you monkeys.

loving the design! if i could choose any sock monkey in the world? It would be a tie between a david bowie monkey (circa the 70's) or a frodo (lord of the rings) monkey!

Canucky Woman said...

Very nice web design, Mub! Wish I had a clue how to do stuff like that...

I would definitely want a heavy metal hair band guitar god monkey...for my Ruudje...but don't sweat too much over the guitar...;)

Kori said...

I love the new look; it is so cool! And I love the monkeys; if I won one, I wouldn't care what you did with it. :)

4 Lettre Words said...

OH!!! Pick me! Pick me!!

This is sooo exciting...and if I don't win, I would love to buy a monkey. Said monkey would be for a little boy in "fire" colors. :o)

thamarai said...

Cutie cute! :) The blog looks awesome, seriously! A sock monkey with a saree sort of a thingy maybe..:)

Nancy C said...

I love the new design as well. Oh, I adore your monkeys. If I had to select one, I am partial to the diaper-wearing green guy. Anything with stripes is a win.

Sonya said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH *squeeeeeeeeeee* I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR NEW LAYOUT! 1. Because of the awesome sock monkies and 2. Because of the awesome PINKNESS!!!!!!! Pieter, however, says it makes him sad.

I want to enter the sock monkey givaway. *squee* I would want a PINK or grey garden gnome sock monkey that had pointy socks on and a pointy hat and a cute beard and a bell inside him when you shake him. I love garden gnomes and Pieter won't let me have one, haha. ;)

Ah, I'm behind on my feed reading and only now saw this. I love the color and look of the blog. Nicely done! I particularly like the spring colors monkey: pinks and greens and other pretty pastel colors like the flowers that are starting to finally bloom!
