Updated Logo Picture by Eight Days Designs

As you all know I have been wanting to update the logo on my blog and webpage for quite some time now. In my search for a company that could provide what I was looking for and losing money on another graphic artist who just didn't get my vision, I found Eight Days Designs. I can't tell you how excited I was to find someone who finally got what I was going for! Laura, the owner of Eight Days Designs was easy to work with, extremely personable and the service was FAST! I contracted Eight Days Designs to create a new custom illustration for the blog and for the Cult Nails website and to design my Cult Nails business cards. You can see my new blog logo today along with a few updates I made to the design on my blog. Laura also does blog designs as well. I didn't opt for the re-design with Laura at the time because I am trying to be as thrifty with funds as possible, but after seeing my new custom illustrations and business cards I decided to purchase the Please Please Me blog package! This will update my Header, Background, Signature and Post Divider. This will just be a basic upgrade for now, but I am sure I will add on more in the near future!
If you were curious as to the Cult Nails illustration and my business cards I included them here.



Amazing right? I am loving the designs! Now I have a little work to do on the Cult Nails website to make it work with this new logo design. I will be working on that this week, but this is WAY better than what we had on there before! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to have this updated!  I was in que to receive my first draft on November 7th of the custom illustration, but I actually received my first draft about a week ago and everything was 100% done by the 7th! Ahead of schedule! WAHOOO!! How often can you say that?

SO on to the contest part of all this. Eight Days Designs did such an amazing job, that I feel the need to share this with you. If you have been looking for a little sprucing up on your own blog, this is a great way to get started. Laura offers several blogger design packages. Packages start at just $30 for the Please Please Me package and as I've said it includes the Header, Background, Signature and Post Divider. We are going to give away this package to one lucky individual! That means me & one of my lucky followers will be getting a bit of a blog lift soon! YAY!

Here are the rules: You need to follow my blog and the Eight Days Designs blog for 1 entry - this is a must. You will get 1 additional entry for following me on twitter and 1 entry for following Eight Days Designs on Twitter. You will get 1 entry for following me on Facebook and one for following Eight Days Designs on Facebook. It's that easy! Just complete th form below and you are good to go! Because Laura is taking a mini blogger vacation to a blogger bootcamp, I will end the contest on Friday, but the winner won't hear from Laura until she returns the following week. I just don't want the winner freaking out, so I am warning you now. :) Good luck!

  1. Can I ask a couple of questions, before entering for the Giveway?
    Like when you say that we get an extra entry, if we follow you guys on Facebook, and Twitter, does it means that we can fill in the form again?
    And what's a Marketing List?

  2. You just need to complete the form once. If at the time you enter you are not following on Facebook or Twitter and then later decide you want to follow, just send me an email and I will add your information to your form so you don't have to complete the form more than once. Sometimes Cult Nails or Eight Days Designs may choose to send out emails marketing our products or services. If you want to receive those emails, this is a way for you to sign up. If you don't want to receive them, you can choose not to. We will only be signing people up who are interested though. Hope this helps!
