tumblr Page, Redesigned

I joined tumblr awhile ago, because I had originally planned to make it a page for my affiliate work with Madison Street Beauty. I had named it 2Byoutify, and it was going to be all about beauty - not just makeup, but beauty in the home, in nature, and life in general too. 

Well, I decided to give it a redesign just recently. I renamed it to match my main blog here, so now it's called 2justByou as well. And it's a place where I reblog all things beautiful, fun, and inspiring.

This is what my tumblr page looks like now:

I used to have this beautiful banner up, graphic made by the lovely Areeba of I Have a Messy Bun:

The affiliate program is now dissolved, though, so I thought it was time to give the page a makeover. I'm already missing my sparkles. I'm thinking of having Areeba create a new header for my new tumblr. This girl does blog designs & a la carte services, and she always does a great job! Check her out HERE

Are you on tumblr
I'm looking for new blogs to follow, so that I can expand the activity feed on my dashboard. If you're there, leave me your link in a comment. I'd love to follow.

AND...If you have something you would like me to reblog, just hit the "submit" button at the top of the page. You don't even have to be a member of tumblr for that at all. Leave me what you want to blog (be sure to include an image), and I'll blog (or reblog) it for you. Easy peasy!

Oh, and by the way, today is #GivingTuesday
It's a national day (actually a worldwide day) of giving. Have you taken an #UNselfie yet? Learn about the #UNselfie project HERE and take one of your own to share the movement.

We're continuing our efforts as a family to raise awareness about eczema and help the National Eczema Association. At least $1 from every sale from our Etsy shop will be going to NEA through the end of this year. PLUS, today only, you can buy our Cyber Week Deal of the Day item, and the FULL purchase price (at 50% off) will be donated!

We're also collecting newborn baby hats to give to a local hospital this month. This is something we do every year at Christmas time, because we have two December babies in our house! 

Back at the end of April, I won a giveaway for two handmade hats. I chose to receive the newborn size, so that we could save them for December to give to newborn babies at the hospital. We received our prize in the mail a few weeks ago. Here they are!

Want to donate a hat with us?
If you'd like to donate a hat for us to give, contact me! You can use the Contact Form on the right sidebar. In exchange for your donation, we'll add you to the blog sidebar for at least 30 days!

We're planning to give these on Tuesday, December 23rd, so there's plenty of time to get in on the action. If you make your hats, then be sure to send a few business cards too (we include them when we gift them).

Join me later today to find out who won the ad space giveaway from the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop. See ya then!

I am also on Tumblr here http://enzieshahmiri.tumblr.com/ and will follow everyone who follows me :)

I haven't used tumblr for anything other than promoting giveaways lately, and should probably redesign my look, too.

Natalia Khon said...

What a lovely idea!
I have a tumblr blog. It looks funny! As if I keep posting the same picture every day! Why is it happening? I only noticed now because you asked to put a link...

Hilda Rodgers said...

Very generous of you to donate your profits and the hats. It's good to remember the season is about giving not getting!

Dana S. said...

What a way to celebrate giving Tuesday...! I will log into my tumblr blog and follow you too!

Debi Chambers said...

I really like your glitzy banner! I need to go over and check out the designers shop. My kids have eczema, but it is not as bad now that they are getting older. I didn't know they had an association for the ailment.
