New Amazing Blog Design and a Giveaway!

Notice anything different? Well you probably should. My old (and kind of ugly) blog design is no more! Welcome to the new and improved Nawanda Files, which is much cuter and way more attractive than I could have ever imagined. All thanks to Lea over at LC's Adventures in Libraryland! She is absolutely amazing, professional, and awesome to work with. If you're thinking about getting a new design or even a cool new button I would recommend Lea Christine Designs. Her talent seems to be endless :)

Also check out Lea's blog for a cool post on the makeover! 

Here is my rather sad and pathetic old design: 

The black header was AWFUL! I was too scared to fool around with it myself though. So Lea worked her magic and POOF.....

MY NEW DESIGN! 

I was thinking about taking a screen shot for it, but I realized that would be silly considering you're reading this on my newly designed blog :) I'm in love with everything about it! From my little robots, to the spaceships, to the astronaut girl, it's all incredible! 

I can't celebrate this awesomeness without having a giveaway! So I'm offering up a book of choice from The Book Depository for up to $15. 

The giveaway is International as long as The Book Depository ships to you. 
It will end 7/11

  2. My favorite part of the new blog design is definitely your new banner/header up top. I thought the cute robot design was unique, and after working with your sister and seeing you both on twitter, I'm beginning to love the whole comic book thing you have going on. I think the little astronaut girl with the stars background is adorable. You're not the first person I've followed that has had a makeover from LC. She seems to be amazing at these things!

    Thank you for the opportunity to win an awesome giveaway as well (:
