So you waited for it, and here it is, the COOOOOLEST giveaway!
When I decided that I wanted to do this blog after so much friend encouragement,
I knew that I could not do it halfway.
And that it was an all or nothing kind of thing.
But here enters the first of many problems:
I have very high standards…
I barley understand Facebook, let alone WordPress, HTML code or Twitter…
I tried to make up my own site but just stumbled all over the place…
I kept looking around at other sites and could not figure out HOW they made them look so good.
I knew what I wanted, sort of, well not really.
I just knew what I wanted people to get out of My Favorite Everything.
But I didn’t have a CLUE how to make that happen.
After beating my head on my desk and realizing that it may take me a year to get this up and going, another fun friend of mine launched a very cool blog about a fictional pregnant girl, My Hormones Made Me Do It.Â Not only was her writing style entertaining, but her blog design had a wonderful and chic look about it.Â I immediately made the phone call to find out who had designed it….and the rest is history.
Susie is my savior and the amazing web designer behind this site. At this point she is almost the Godmother of our third child!
I have never met Susie in person, but have daily emails with her as I get in and out of so many behind the scene messes. I can assure you, this blog WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED without her.
Zee Studio has a very important talent. They can filter through everything you are saying to figure out EXACTLY what you are really asking for.
And here is the important part:
Then they make it happen in flying colors. On time, on budget, with amazing results
Besides the amazing design talent, Zee Studio does something else that I found extremely valuable, they understand time management, deadlines and communication.
Your email will be answered the same day it is received.
When Zee Studio says you will have a comp, or something delivered on a certain day,
Zee Studio is ABSOLUTELY a FAVORITE, I stand behind them 500%.
But I’m not the only one, check out the additional love. Oh to be loved as much by so many!
Susie has now designed this website, the business cards, post cards and I asked her to do our family holiday card (this is NOT something I typically allow out of my hands!) along with darling postage stamps to go with them.Â Her design ability is endless!
Check out the Zee Studio blog for recent projects.
OK – now onto the coolest giveaway…

To celebrate the holidays, Zee Studio is giving away a Mini WordPress Blog Package ($800 value) to one My Favorite Everything reader.
OMG This is so amazing!!! I can’t wait to see it!!!
With this package, you will get one custom blog design created just for you, with two rounds of revision on the initial concept.
The blog will be fully coded and installed on your own web server, and Zee Studio will provide instruction on how to use your new software.
Full details of this package can be found here.
(You have no idea how AMAZING this is! TRUST me, speaking from this end, if I had had the opportunity to enter this a few months ago, I would have 24 x 7!)
Info behind the giveway:
1. You must be serious about this project and have a concept or goal in mind. It is not possible to design a website otherwise. So please explain your concept (this can be as short as one sentence! It does not need to be long) either in a comment, or by emailing it to Susie at email@example.com if you’d like to keep it secret. Any information you submit via email will be kept confidential. If you skip this step, your other entries will not count. A winner will be randomly selected from the valid entries.
2. Giveaway can be for new blogs, or existing blogs in need of a redesign. It is also open to both individuals and businesses.
3. Winner can upgrade their package or add more features as desired and the difference will be due before the start date.
4. Your project will begin in mid-January and should take between 2 to 4 weeks to fully complete. (and she means it!)
5. Please note that the winner will be responsible for covering the costs of domain name registration and hosting. I have discount codes available for Dreamhost if you choose to use that company. The host must be compatible with WordPress (almost all will, but it’s best to double check with me if you are not sure).
