Wasn't Meant To Be

Something weird happened to me, and I don't think there's anything I can do about it.  Do you recall a few months ago when I mentioned I won a giveaway for a custom blog design from another blogger?  Well, I never heard from the blogger.  I left a comment on her post with my email address, as well as sending her an email that same day.  Then a few weeks later after not hearing from her, I sent yet another email.  A friendly sort of - Hey, maybe you forgot about me because you're really busy and that's fine - email.  But I've never heard from her.

I just wonder what happened.  It doesn't make sense.  I'm in no way out to get the blogger.  I won't tell you who she is, and I've already deleted the post where I announced I won the design because it isn't my intention to cast her in a bad light.  People are fallible, and somehow this giveaway got goofed up for reasons I don't understand.

So I don't get a custom blog design after all, and needless to say, I'm disappointed.  I was soooo looking forward to a new design that has LIZ written all over it... you know?  It just wasn't meant to be, I guess.


  1. I'm sorry that happened Liz. I got my design from Amy at Split Decisionz She does pre-made templates for around $35 BUT she has a few fress ones to select from as well. That's where I got mine...and I love it! Here's the link for the free ones.
    Give it a look. Let me know how it works out for you.

  2. i have won stuff i've never gotten lots of times now. they won't even return my emails! weird, huh? my blog designer is awesome and super cheap! Aqua Poppy. She also has freebies. Check out my page ad se if you like her style. her button is on my page,too.

  3. That's a bummer. I hate when people don't come through with their promises.

    My new blog friend, Lauren, has posted templates that she has made and made them available for free. She has some cute stuff!

  4. Thanks. I will check out all of these websites for some affordable design options.


Thanks for dropping by my blog. I love comments! I'll reply to you here or in an email, unless you have your email option turned off.
