Blog Design Reveal + A Giveaway!

Hello! Happy New Year! 

What a great way to start out the new year with a new blog design, name, and something really awesome that you will have to read on for! I am really excited about this post! I've been working with Lauren at The Perfect Pear Designs to create a blog design that reflected more of who I am, what Chevron Stitches is about, and that would grow with me in the next years. She nailed it, I'd say. Over the past month Lauren and I have been working to get this blog to where it needs to be and with very little tweaking, it is finally all here!! Thank you Lauren for being AMAZEBALLS! 

If you followed me at The Little Willow Tree you can see that with this new design comes some fancy new features. I have a really awesome 'About Me' section in the right sidebar. I love having a little introduction to me with a picture so you can see just who I am. If you want to know more about me, click on the about me section above.
I have a 'grab my button' section in the right sidebar. You have two buttons to choose from so grab away! I'd love to be shared on your blog! Let me know you're sportin' my button too! I love giving shout outs!
I have a fancy new post signature. It's really pretty adorbs and better than I could have created.
New post series! With the new blog and new design comes three weekly series to check out. All of which may become link ups if people are interested. Come check me out Mondays for a 'Hello Monday' series where I will share my week of inspirations from clothes, to crafts, to sewing projects and more. I hear a lot of people have a 'case of the Mondays' so Im here to get you out of that droll and get inspired! Then you can come back Wednesday for 'Work in Progress Wednesdays' where I will show you at least one project I am currently working on. Hop back on over on Friday for 'Pinspiration Friday' where I share with you a project found on Pinterest. You will see my 'Pinspiration' and my finished project with a link back to the original source. But don't just come on those days - come back in between because I post something new just about every day!
And lastly, something new new. Something I have never offered before - Sponsor ad spots. You can now advertise on Chevron Stitches. Sponsoring Chevron Stitches is totally affordable, too! No reason to break anyones bank here, but I do put a lot of hard work into what I do.

Now I couldn't do a new blog + design reveal without giving away some awesome prizes! So I partnered up with some of my best bloggie friends out there to offer some pretty rad items to one lucky winner! Here's what you get:
