Well, after 5 days of copy, paste, what does this code do?, hair pulling confusion, I finally have a blog designed just for me. It isn’t 100% finished, but I’ve been searching for hours about how to fix my last 2 issues and have come up empty. It is way past time that I turn off the computer for 24hrs. and go do something else!
But before I go I wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Nina at Momma Go Round! Her Beautify Your Blog Series is the only reason that I have anything to show you at all. She showed me how to do things that I didn’t even know I wanted to change. (check out the cool heart favicon in the tab at the top of the screen!)
A few things I LOVE about my new home…
The Header – Before I started this project I had only used Photoshop maybe twice in college to very poor result. But this came together wonderfully after the hubby showed me just a few tricks. My favorite part has to be the tart itself. If you can’t tell, the filling is buttons, the crust is ric rac, and the pie plate is corduroy.
The “Digi” Lace – This is part of the header, footer, and also my grab button and is awesome for how simple it was to make. I may have to do a tutorial about it so that others can use it in scrapbooking or other computer design projects.
The Grab Button – I’ve admired other blogger’s buttons, but never imagined I’d have one of my own, especially one made by me!
My Signature – It just makes me happy to look at it. Maybe it just makes this feel like a “real” blog.
Sorry to make a post just to toot my own horn, but I think that everyone should know that You CAN do this. It doesn’t matter how bad you are with computers, and you don’t have to hire someone else. If you can Google your question, there is someone out there who will help you find the answer. It will definitely be a bit stressful, but I honestly think that the end result is worth it when you see a little piece of you on the page.
Please feel free to leave any suggestions. I’m by no means an expert, and you may see something I missed due to hours of staring.
Thanks for stopping by!
