    7. Hello Mary,
      I entered on your facebook site. I would love a website, as a matter of fact, I recently purchased websites for dummies to read & try to figure out what to do. I'm not very computer savy and am learning a little here & there as I go along. I purchased your seo from etsy but havn't had time to utilize it. Hoping once I find the time, it will bring more viewers & possibly shoppers to my site.
      My facebook is Donna Zimmer & one of my etsy sites is:
      I want to thank you for the generous offer to give away a website, it would be about the best gift ever :P

    8. Following ontwitter @thecuttingetch.
      I have a blog on blogger, but that is the closest to a website I have. I think a new and improved site would really help my etsy shop. I am open for any improvement! thanks!

    10. Hi! I follow on twitter @landofpoppies.
      I would love this! I don't have a website, just my etsy page. I'd like something unique. simple. and unforgettable:)

    11. I'm following and "liking" @kitchenstew.
      I've been blogging 18 mos. but have never had a web designer. It needs help so badly! I need to condense my above the fold stuff by about 75%. I need cute contact buttons. I need to calm down the futz and make it more clean, w/ lots of white space. I would be so very pumped to win a blog design! I hope you get to 50 entries! (Did I do this right? Is that it?) Thank you!

    12. following @ShoutLaughLove

      i'd love to pretty up my blog, especially some of the titles, buttons, and fonts.

    13. twitter follower (Lubaska) and FB fan (Lubka Kotmanikova) but still only "newsborn" as regarding publishing anything on internet. I often think about translating interesting life-style articles (about health, food, sport) to my mothers language.

    14. I liked you on Twitter. :)

      What would I like for a new design on my blog? I'd like it to not look like I did it, because that's what it SCREAMS right now.


    15. I am a twitter follower. (@fotomommy) I'd like to start a website showcasing my photography.

    16. i'd love to enter if it is still going on??

      You are being {{followed}} on Twitter by Lovejoycreates aka Lovejoycreations on Etsy! Muuhaahaaha!
      Backkkk to reality.
      I would love a website design that showcases my leatherwork, artwork and babyshoes. I have three domain names I would like to lead to this website. Not sure from there what I want. The leather part would be nice with perhaps an artistic western flavor. The baby shoes, soft pastels and adorable. The art part would have an artist's bio, and then have my artwork on there as well. Perhaps black background, not sure. My feet are jumping, but not sure where they are a goin' to be landin'. Yikes!

    18. yeah, i'm excited there is still time!

      all the techy stuff overwhelms me, i have a website

      i'm excited to improve and expand

      thanks for entering me :-)

    19. I'm veganessa on twitter, and I'm following you on there. i'd love my own website, to bring together my etsy shop, blog and more. I want it to be informative and fabulous to look at.

    20. THANKS so much for announcing your give-away on the EFA team chat !
      Would love a website... I use my blog as a website at the moment :)

    21. Thank you for your kind offer! I too use my blog as a website and would love something professional to help promote my dog Sky's Etsy shop, theanimalsmagicshop, where 20% of the proceeds are donated to help animals. We are both computer dummies :>)

    22. At the moment, Cairo our tiger cub is promoting I would love a whimsical - friendly and inviting page for Cairo to showcase our beautiful EFA embroidered items.

    23. You are now being followed by Kis4Calligraphy on twitter.

      I would love a website that uses my calligraphy as all the headers and buttons. A place where I can have a "form" for custom work would be the most important element along with clean and easy way to scroll through my portfolio of work.

      Such a great giveaway! Thank you so much for the opportunity! xo, Katy

    24. hi - i am cory, here is my fb:!/cory.ahern

    25. Hi Mary,

      Wow! That's a very generous Giveaway! Someone is going to be very happy, I'm sure.

    26. I would love to have a website for my pottery :}


      This is a great giveaway!! thanks for the chance to enter! I liked you on facebook :)

    28. Thanks for the chance to enter. My user name is jesusfreakof2000. I would love a website to sell my photography. Something that displays them well. allows for interaction connects to a website they can order their prints directly. So it's a drop ship. I would also like the chance to have it linked to other photography advice and artists I like. And I would love love love to have them displayed without watermarks but be fully protected.

      Thanks so much!

    29. I thought I had missed this - so glad I didn't. I "liked" on Facebook and added your page to my page - Mama Hoot Designs.

      I'd love a website that showcases my favorite item - my books. Something that shows off both the pages and the stories clearly. Fresh and clean but without blending into all the other craft sites and blogs out there.

    30. Hi! I hope there's still time to enter this giveaway! I just "liked" your Facebook page (Helen Gentz).
      I have been wanting a website with lots of pretty pictures of my family, home, creations, and something that would somehow match my Etsy shop. On the other hand, I've been wanting my husband to have a professional website for his side business (vintage lawn mower repair). He has a host/domain name, but his site is needding a lot of work.

    31. Hi I am on titter:

      I am not sure of the web site of my dreams as I really never thought about it other then I would love to have more traffic so my things sell more I guess...

    32. You are focused on realizing all you possibly can about this. We're completely satisfied you discovered us. On this site, we have introduced collectively an unlimited array of data and sources on this.
