Today’s giveaway is brought to you by Royal Daughter Designs.  If you’re a regular reader of SALM, you’ll know that she’s been on here before, she loves designing blogs and social media sites and I’d describe her style as clean, modern, and totally fun!   Instead of asking her my typical set of questions, I’ve decided to make this more fun with some holiday related questions!  Read on… and then enter away!  :)


1) What is your favorite thing about the holidays?
My favorite thing about the holidays is relaxing with family. My mom hosts Thanksgiving, and my mother-in-law hosts Christmas, so I don’t have to do very much work at all! Every year we travel about 12 hours to visit my husband’s family, and the week-long trip is incredibly relaxing and refreshing. And it’s always a bonus when we get to see snow, since I’m a Texas gal and rarely see that white flaky stuff.

2) What are some items on your Christmas wishlist? 

1. I love this ornament from Lisa Leonard!
2. This print from Pen & Paint, with my heart in Texas, of course.
3. Handmade Christmas Stocking from The Pleated Poppy
4. I’d totally pair Old Navy Peter Pan coat with a grey scarf. Yellow and grey is my favorite color combo right now!
5. Ruffle scarf in teal from the Pleated Poppy
6. I’m a sucker for Tangled.
7. Polka dot Chambray from Old Navy = awesome.
8. I might be the only blogger who doesn’t yet have an ipad. #mustfixthis

Talk about me wanting everything on her wishlist… seriously!  Well, the best part is here, enter below for this awesome giveaway that will help beautify some of your social media sites!

    I would like my FB and Twitter pages to match my blog using tropical colors.

    My graphic on my twitter is just a repeat of my blog logo. I think we could come up with something a BIT more creative!

    She has lovely designs and I love how clean they all are. I have my son do my web graphics so I’m good on a design.

    My Twitter and Facebook pages just don’t have a design. I would love to have them coordinate with my blog.

    I love all these designs they are lovely! I’d love a more bookish twitter background if I won, I’m just using the stock layout now and it is very plain =/

    I seriously need to overhaul my blog and social media sites to make them all unified. I like the clean lines of my blog now and the simple white, black and pink color combination. I’d love to stick with that but make all my channels looks the same. – Katy

    I actually do all my own designing, because I’m a graphic designer by day, but I love her stuff! Very clean and chic. I love that subtle grey on grey woodgrain look… not something I would have thought of. I think if I could redo my Twitter background, I’d maybe do a tone-on-tone map of the Chicagoland area with a star near where I’m located… something that matches my current FB page top but isn’t super distracting or busy.

    I would love to have a Twitter background designed! I love turquoise and purple (think Peacocks!). :) And I think would go more modern and streamlined with the design.

    I would love something for my new twitter account. It is just the regular background but so much more could be done with it to fit the theme.

    I need a new Facebook picture desperately! It’s my old logo and I’d love a new one with snazzy pictures and bright color scheme! BTW, this is so late but LOVE the new design Sandy!
