new blog on the block… and, a giveaway!

blogger deleted kiana’s old blog, since she hadn’t posted anything in over six months.
actually, big bummer, because i loved all her little-girl-posts.
{if you ask me.}
so, while we’ve had some free time here in mexico,
miss twelve asked me to help her get a new “more mature” blog design.
i designed a custom header for her, and she’s got the ball rolling… {here}

{go check it out, and leave her a comment, she loves those comments just like her momma!}

i copied this picture from her blog, it made me smile,
because this is how the rhodes roll — {hehe, pun intended!}

in honor of the new year ahead,
and because i’m dying to have more comments around here…
i am offering a GIVE-AWAY in honor of the new year.
leave a comment below with why you should be chosen,
and a winner will be announced before midnight on January 2nd.
{good luck!}
i’m also curious, what are your new years resolutions?
i’m making my list…

  1. Kiana is so dang cute. Love her blog. I absolutely LOVE the adorable header you did for my photog blog and get so many comments about it! Would love to have one for our personal!! Happy New Year!

  2. I love love LOVE your blog. Absolutely love it. I am not too good with blogs and would love my own personal header! Happy new years!

  3. I'm going to have to delurk for this one, love your style and design! I've been reading your blog for forever but probably only commented a few times. I've had a blog now for almost three years and have never changed a thing, it is still the bare bones awful looking layout from blogger. Unfortunately I have zero design/tech skills and don't even know where to start. Really, even more pathetic is that I have photos of my kids in the side bar that are from three years ago. Not to mention the fact I've never even bothered to add pics of my 20 mo old triplets. So clearly a change is never going to happen on my own, I need you.

  4. Love your blog! Your creativity and love for family is inspiring. I have two adorable preschool boys and attempted to begin blogging approximately 2 years ago. Lack of time and creativity has kept me from keeping it up to date. I would love to start the new year fresh with an awesome looking blog and shown our entire family just how fun, silly and lovable our boys are! Happy New Year!

  5. Jane, you always have the best ideas! My immediate family are the only ones who live in Salt Lake so we stay connected with most of our extended family through my blog. I always have so many wonderful things to post but I don't because my blog looks so sad. I don't know how I'm suppose to put pictures of cute son on my ugly blog! HELP. Please πŸ™‚ Only two new years resolutions I can think of so far, I'll have to make a post on my sad looking blog about it. Ha

  6. best giveaway ever! i would love love love a custom blog header. i think it would make my blog look a lot more professional and personal. my blog is in dying need of a face lift and that would just do the trick!

  7. I just love your blog! I would absolutely love to have a new blog header! I'm just a college kid and I just blog about my life, but I blog pretty regularly and it would be awesome if I could have something a little more exciting to keep my blog interesting!

    Like I said, love love love your blog! Seriously, I always read your posts first when I get onto Google Reader. Some of my roommates and I follow your blog and it's hilarious how sometimes at dinner we'll talk about "jane's latest post" or how "jane is the supermom we all want to be when we get married". I hope you never stop blogging!

  8. I would looove a new blog header. πŸ™‚

  10. I would like you to know that of all my friends and families blogs, everyday when I go to check what is new: I CHECK YOURS FIRST!
    I've never met you, you are a friend of a friend, but I'm pretty sure I would like Heavenly Father to make me "you" in my next life!
    Jen makes fun of me a bit for idolizing your ideas all the time. I will randomly split out…"Jane said!"
    Anywho, I would love a header designed by you. Not to mention, I am not very blog savvy:) Thanks for all the good ideas if nothing else!
    p.s. i am not a stalker:)well kind of??

  11. I am in no way crafty and a new header would be a perfect start to my 2011! I love yours and the one you made for Kiana is darling also!

  12. Oh my!!! This would completely make my new year. One of my resolutions is to start back blogging again. I spent a good amount of time trying to make a new header for my blog and it just didn't turn out the way I had invisioned. I would love to win your header giveaway! Love reading your blog

    Kristin .

  13. Your family is adorable. I blog usually daily. it's my journal about my life as a stay at home my with my 2 boys. I am HORRIBLE at anything technical. My husband helped me design a picture header…about 2 years ago. Yep my header has been the same for 2 years. i need help! My ONLY new years resolution to be a better Mommy each and every day.

  14. I love your simple, sleek design and seriously need a makeover on my blog! I'm not "graphic" design talented…can I just sew some fabric to the screen? πŸ™‚ You're amazing and an inspiration.

    resolutions: slow down, laugh more and finally meet that goal weight!

  15. I was just thinking I need to blog more, and how I would love to make that my new yr resolution! It would help so much to have a cute header from you! πŸ™‚ Love your blog. You inspire me..

  16. oooh I need a new blog header! One of my many resolutions is to not focus on others flaws or my own so much πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the giveaway. I found your blog from a friends friend. I can feel your energy and love for life when I read your blog. Thank you!

  17. What a great giveaway! I actually gave up on blogging and put everything straight into Blurb for our "famiy yearbook" but I wanted to say thanks for sharing your vacaction with everyone! It helped get me through the freeeeezing Christmas here in Utah. As for my resolutions, definately more family/kid time and slim, tighten, and tone for my 15 year anniversary celebration in Jamaica!

  18. I feel like we are close friends πŸ˜€ so basically i should get this giveaway prize because that would be simply awesome! It might get me to blog more… plus also get a better blog!

  19. oh oh oh…pick me… I am sitting at my computer, right this instant, swtiching out my blog format from Christmas to something 'non-christmas-ish' (pretty sure that's not even a word) stuffing my face with peppermint brownies (new diet starts tomorrow…RIGHT?) anyway…I was just online trying to find a cute blog header to use like 5 minutes ago. couldn't find crap! plus…i'm a total tard when it comes to stuff like that.

    p.s. love reading your blog and seeing what your cute fam is up to.

    p.s.s yes Im just a total blog stalker πŸ™‚

  20. Right here is the right website for anybody who wants to find out about this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject which has been discussed for decades. Excellent stuff, just excellent!
