Announcements, Announcements

Ok so I’ve made some big changes here at Measured by the Heart.  I was reading this post by Mandi at Vintage Revivals.  Here’s what she said that got me:

Tip #1. LOVE what you are blogging about.  Love it so much that you would do it for FREE…All the months between July (when I started) and April I did it 100% for free, because I love it.

So I started thinking what do I LOVE so much that I would do it for free.  And the answer is digital design.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE designing digitally. And I would and have done it for free just for the joy of designing.  So I have decided to do a monthly giveaway of FREE design services.

July’s giveaway is free social media buttons!!

What are social media buttons you ask.  Well I’m glad you asked.  They are the cute little icons people have on their blogs that take you to their Facebook and twitter pages.  People also do things like email and Pinterest.  Basically all the ways you can connect with that blog.  Here are a few examples I have designed {you can see my social media buttons on the top of my left sidebar}

You can see more design work I have done by clicking here or clicking the blog design button at the top of this blog. 

If you don’t have a blog or don’t need social media buttons, don’t worry we can figure out something else to design for you.  Check out my blog design site to see some examples. 

To enter you must be a follower.  Then simply leave me a comment.  It’s really simple.   This giveaway will end on July 31st at midnight.  Good luck to all.  I’m super excited to do more designing!!



  1. How nice of you! I don't do social media on my blog, but, if I did, I'd jump on this in a heartbeat!

    Another blogger made a "welcome, sit and stay a while" button that visitors could take for their blogs. I did and I love it. Unfortunately, I can't figure out where where her site is now even from the code. My point is that you might possible want to code that in so people can get back to you for new work. I know so little about this kind of stuff that this may be entirely impossible. Just a thought.

    I would be interested in getting a blog button, though. AND, will pay for it if it is within my range of possibility. Are you interested in that?

    Sounds great! I think blogging what you love is important. And I think any blog could use some sprucing every so often.

    How generous & sweet! I remember when you designed that set for the DIY showoff & that's how I originally found you. Saw your link at Someday Crafts. Was curious b/c I'm hosting a similar design giveaway to celebrate my blog birthday… inspired by the same love for designing! I already have social media buttons, so if you draw my entry, you can skip me & spread the design love to another lucky blogger.
