Celebrating being back with a blog graphics giveaway!

Home sweet home!

I'm back today after a fabulous 2-week break on my mom's boat in Thailand and Malaysia. It was wonderful being away - and I got to spend time with my fabulous mom, who is a sailor, diver and yoga-teacher! One of the wonderful things about sailing is the simplicity of it all - the wind and waves making up your universe for the day. Sailing has always been to me a metaphor for life - we are like little boats: will you simply drift or will you harness the wind you are given, set a course and sail?

As always I have come back feeling refreshed and I have SO much to blog about... my mom and I doing yoga, some Yoga sequences for balancing the doshas, the Yoga for Runners workshop I'm putting together for next weekend, why we should stretch, the overfishing of the oceans...

In the meantime I am feeling refreshed and full of love for my yoga blog community (also in between contracts) so I've decided to celebrate being back with a yoga-blog-title-bar-giveaway!! Yep, for the first 3 commenters I will offer my graphic design skills to redesign or tweak your blog header bar or logo, photos, make you an award, or any other graphic element you'd like for your blog. :) (Oh, if you want to comment but have a great header already, feel free! I'll only count those who request).


  1. Oooh yes please. I just have a bit of a bog standard header at the moment and I would love something a bit I guess, but I'm not sure what.

    Sounds like such a wonderful trip and that's a great photo :)

  2. Ohhhh fun!! You don't have to count me in though, my blog is just a boring template and I have no idea how to add a header. I am graphically illiterate : ) But I'm glad you had a great vacation and thanks so much for your thoughtful advice over at my place about teaching!

  3. Wow, pick me, please! I'd love a nice header for my blog. What a generous offer! I've been wanting to incorporate a photo of myself in a favorite asana... though, which one, I am not yet certain. And I'm completely ignorant in the art of graphic design. I wouldn't know where to begin.

  4. welcome back! looking forward to more of your wonderful insights and writing.

  5. That would be cool! I'm lacking a header for my blog. Ah, but I don't think I made the first three comments.

  6. Welcome back! Sounds like a fab trip - I hope my daughters and I spend time like that when they are adults!

  7. Wow, that was fast!

    The first 3 requesters of headers are:

    - Suburban Yogini
    - Misanthropic Yogini and
    - Yoga with Gaileee

    Looking forward to creating some fun designs with you ladies!

  8. I am so incredibly BUMMED! I want help with my header, but I've been away from the blogosphere with all of my remodeling drama! I am so glad you had a nice trip. I love your sailing analogy ~ must remember that daily ;-)
