Gina is the blogger behind “Mommy Making Money“, who says that part of her job as a SAHM is to save money as a way of making money to contribute to their family budget. Gotta love that, huh?
She shares her strategies, tips for planning and organization, and ways to have FUN on a tight budget. She also does lots of great giveaways! Whether you’re a working mom, stay-at-home mom, or anyone else, these strategies can work for you – and I highly suggest you check her out if you’ve never visited her before.
Gina admitted that she was tired of the green on her blog and really desired a change. Since her blog was about saving money and shopping, sprinkled with tidbits of her life with her three children, she also suggested a mom with a shopping cart or some other illustration that represented a mom with children. Here’s what her old blog looked like:
The challenge was to find an illustration that was connotative of her decision to be frugal and wise with money in order to help her family out. I thought about owls and found this graphic, and the rest, as they say, was history. Check out the cute little RSS and Email graphics I created just for her blog too!
Gina emailed me the day I installed it – here’s an excerpt:
I saw the preview this morning and was FLOORED! You did such a beautiful job capturing me, I don’t know how you did it! I was so surprised by the colors and stripes, I took this picture so you could see what my girls were wearing this morning when they got up. How did you know??? 🙂
And the photo? How cute are these precious little owls?
If you get a chance, stop by Gina’s blog and say “hi!” today. She’s sick, the kids are sick – I’m sure she could use the encouragement. 🙂
