The Bloggy Giveaways Carnival is back!! Have you seen the astronomical amount of prizes??? If you are like me you are sitting at your desk with your lunch entering into as many of these giveaways as you can. Are they not awesome or what??

 

Despite feeling out of breath, slightly light headed, and shaky, I am sitting here with my lunch (chicken Caesar salad if you must know) and my root beer (caffeine free) and browsing through all the Enormous amount of fabulous prizes. There is no way on this earth I will be able to get through and visit all of you. But all ready I have discovered some fabulous web sites.

 

Undeterred by my racing heart that won't seem to calm down, I have decided to join in the fun! Oh yes I have. It isn't much but I have collected a few fall items that will get you in the festive mood for the season.

 

My prize:

 

Two Halloween Cookie Cutters (pumpkin and a bat)

Recipe Cards with a Fall theme

Beautiful Blank Note Cards

A 16 pack of Pumpkin Spice Tea Candles

A small fabric Pumpkin

Fall Stickers (for your paper crafting needs)

A glue gun complete with a pack of glue sticks to get you ready to decorate and/or craft for Christmas.

To Enter: Please leave a comment and please tell me what I can do to make my blog better. Wether it be content, writing style, or design wise. I'm always on the look out for ways to make my place better for my readers.

  2. Your blog looks great....I don't have anything to add to make it better....just don't add music, that sounds like lots of fun but it slows some folks down when they try to open your blog up....but you are good as is!

  12. What a great prize! I love your blog already. Just keep doing what you're doing. It's takes a lot of time and hard work to keep a blog going strong. I don't think people always realize what it takes.

  15. Your blog is beautiful! I love the layout and the colors! I'd agree with adding a search option for your blog!

  16. I actually think your blog is perfect the way it is. It's easy to navigate and I could spend hours here... which I very well plan to! Not to mention, I love the colors... so vibrant!!! Don't change a thing. :)

  18. I love your blog and the prize is awesome! All Fall!!!

    My only suggestion is to combine your side bars. They are so busy that it is hard to focus. :)

  19. Hi- I would just say get rid of the FeedJit. Takes up way too much space and I doubt anyone uses it. :)
    Great blog.

    I like how you have done your blog. You could add some music to it. I like to see what other people like in music.

  26. I love your blog name and think the header is really really cute! The only reason I can think of to change anything is if YOU get tired of it or want something new.

  27. I hate to sound like a cop-out, but I love your blog. The design is cute and unique and the layout is clean, uncluttered, and very readable. I agree with others--please avoid music!

    I think your blog is just fine. I do have to agree with a previous poster not to add music. I think it's great that your blog isn't cluttered with sensory overload.

  36. Honestly, I looked over your blog and I don't see anything wrong. It's fun to read, easy to navigate, you have some really greate ideas, it's not too filled with ads and buttons. I like it!!!!!

  37. What a GREAT gift package!! I'd love to win!! As for your blog, the only advice I have would be to maybe cut back on some of the ads and whatnot on your sidebars. It clutters things up and can make it load slower for some people. Thanks for having a giveaway!!

  39. Your blog looks wonderful! I guess I'd say to move your "subscribe to my feed" button up higher on the sidebar so people dont have to go looking for it.

    Great giveaway!

  40. The only thing that I can see is that you have so many buttons on the side bars that it's a little distracting.

  41. I think your blog looks great, but I would second the idea for a search option. I always use search when I've forgotten to bookmark a particular post.

    Hi Tiffanie. It's my first time here and the first thing I noticed is the header; it's quite cute!
    The only thing that I would say is that paid advertisements make a blog look less inviting. Just my opinion. I did that for a bit but then decided it wasn't worth it.
    It's a lovely giveaway; the first of it's kind I've seen. We can all use cooking things!

  46. I think your blog looks great. Love the colors-kind of makes you feel happy. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  49. the only thing i would change is the color behind the words to make it not so bright. It is very nice though!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm sure there are things that you can do to spice up your blog, but as I don't have one, I'm not one to give much advice. The only advice I will give is "don't add music". I have seen a few blogs in the last few days that have music which is not my style. If I have to listen to that the entire time I am browsing, it will be a quick browse.

    ReplyDelete
  51. WOW! Nice giveaway Tiff! I have a thing for tealights so that alone made me LOVE it.

    Ok, ok...what you could change about your blog. To be perfectly honest, I don't think there's anything I would change. Your colors are great, your writing makes sense and you include pictures with everything. I agree with someone ahead of me, just don't add music!

    Thanks so much for entering me and please feel free to check out my giveaway here... http://thepitterpatterboutique.blogspot.com/

  52. I really like your blog...some have such busy backgrounds that I can't read anything! And I don't like the ones with music...takes too long to download and not everyone likes the music that is chosen.

    I love your layout on your blog! I got looking though it and loved that you even had a recipe for slime and the spider pizza. I loved the photo of the legos everywhere it reminds me of my living room.

  54. First, I think your blog looks great. It's very easy to read. The only thing I could imagine doing is adding side buttons to help draw attention, like a button for "I Twiiter," "What's Happening." They kind of get lost with the rest of your sidebar.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  58. I'm a first time visitor and I do like your blog. The only change I would make is to be able to subscribe to the feeds by email. My feed reader slows my computer like crazy sometimes and I rather receive and read them by email.

  74. There's not much to say... I think your blog looks good! I love the header. The only thing I can think of is maybe having less white space in the sidebars, but I think it kind of has to be there with the ads and buttons.

  75. I think your blog looks good. Some of the ones I have visited are so overwhelmingly busy , it's hard to find the actual posts sometimes! Keep true to who you are, that's important. :)
    Nice giveaway. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like your blog. It looks great. The only thing I can think of is - I don't see a blogroll. One of my favorite ways of finding new blogs is to check out what my fave bloggers are reading.

  77. Maybe more colour? But really, your blog looks great. How fantastic! Thank you for this giveaway; I hope I win :)

  78. I'd move the tabs at the top so they are centered and also take them down below the header, instead of in it so you can see them better.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Never entered one of these things before. Interesting. Now...as for your blog. I think it looks great. The only thing I would consider is a color. Maybe the side bars? Pea green maybe for the peas? Just a thought. I actually like your set up now.
    Thanks!

  83. I really think your blog is really great. I do have to say tho, that something to stay away from is music. That's the only thing I don't like when I am blog searching, when all of a sudden loud music is coming from my laptop.

  87. Well, considering this is my first visit, I don't know you, and I don't have the faintest idea to even start a blog...how could I possibly critique yours? It does look good though.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I would love to win the gift basket...it looks great!

    As for your blog, I really like how it looks now, my only suggestion would be to have a background color on the L and R sidebars (something soft, but that differentiates from the main column's white).

    ReplyDelete
  89. I really like the looks of your blog, I can't think of anything I'd change. I saw where someone wrote not to add music and I agree. I hate it when I click on a blog and didn't put the sound on mute so the music wakes up my baby.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Maybe you could put up a tag cloud or some way to find all related posts? Similar to a search, but not exactly. :)

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  96. This is just a personal preference, as I understand the reason for having them, but I'm not a fan of all the ad links on the sides of blogs. Makes it look cluttered (to me).
