I know I've neglected this blog for a while and have been contemplating on what I should do because blog design is not my passion any more. When I first started "tweaking" blogs it became addicting! I wanted to see what else I could learn to spruce up my blog! It was fun. I felt like it was a puzzle I was putting together! Sadly over the past year it's just not fun anymore. I want to thank all my followers. Honestly I am blown away by how many people follow this blog even though its been so neglected. Thank You!!

As for now, I probably won't be writing posts here but I will keep it in tact so people can use the tutorials. I am so happy I have been able to help so many learn to tweak their own blogs! If you would like to keep up with me, please feel free to follow my personal blog! And again Thank you!!

I just realized I have 200 followers on this blog!! WOW!!!! Honestly I am in shock because I feel like I've neglected this blog and my readers!! I want to thank all of you for following me. I hope the tutorials have been helpful!! I am constantly getting such positive comments and feedback!! I also realize some of you have asked questions and I apologize if I've not gotten back to you with answers. Blog design has always been something I do for fun and as a hobby. Recently it's just not been something I enjoy. I know in time I'll get back into it and when I do I'll write more tips and tutorials. If there's something you're interested in knowing how to do, let me know and I'll see if I can write up a new tutorial. I can't guarantee I'll have the answers but I will try!

Thanks again for taking the time to read and follow this blog!! It really means a lot!!

It's About TIME!!!

This blog FINALLY has a new look!! It's about time!! It's only February and I finally took the Christmas look down. I am please with the over all look! It's simple, clean and PINK!!

I also re-designed my sister's blog. It too is simple and clean! I love the photos of my nephews!! My Brother-in-law is learning how to be a GREAT photographer!

I want to apologize to those who have sent emails or comments about specific blog design questions recently. It's a super busy time for me in my job right now and this blog has been severely neglected (Hints the fact I am just barely changing out the Christmas look!) I will try to respond to these questions as soon as I can, until then please refer to my tutorials!!

It's Been Awhile

Wow! I can't believe the last I am wrote on this blog was back in September! I guess I haven't been doing much with Blog Design lately!! Well, actually that's not true! I've now redone both this blog and my personal blog. They both needed a new look especially THIS one!! I still had my Spring theme up and it's almost Winter! I've also done a couple of blog makeovers for Brandi at Autumnfawn Lane and Rachelle at Rachelle's Writing Spot! Go and check them out and say hello!!

Another reason I haven't written is I haven't had any tutorials to write!! Well today I have one and it's SUPER easy!! Have you seen blogs that are snowing? If not pay close attention to this one and my personal blog too!! It's such a fun little embellishment that's not too overwhelming!! It's also perfect for the Christmas season!!

I am going to send you over to Blogger Buster because they have a great tutorial and all you have to do is click on the button that says: (make sure you're signed into blogger)

Add Snow Effect to your Blogger Blog

It will add the snow effect widget to your blog!! All you have to do is click save and viola you have SNOW!!!

I hope you're having a wonderful Holiday season!!

Want a Blog Makeover?

If you have been wanting a blog makeover but don't want to spend a lot of money on it here is your chance!! This past Summer I "met" Leah through the Button's for Lily fundraiser I had a few months ago! I created this button for her blog through this event.

I quickly became a follower of Leah's blog and am so excited about her journey of adoption. Leah and her hubby are raising money to help bring their baby home! Today, they are having a raffle on their blog to win a Blog Makeover by ME!! Head on over to their blog for the details! I hope one of my followers is the winner!! Good Luck!!

Post Signature

If you are wanting a cute signature for the bottom of your posts here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to add one to your blog!
  • You will need an image that has your signature. I use Photoshop to create mine. I know there are other programs, such as Microsoft paint. You'll want the image to be about 100x50 pixels. The size can vary it's really up to you and what you want. You can also add a cute image like I did here!
  • Next you'll need to up load the image to the internet. You can do this by using Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa or you can do as I did, and put it in a post right here on blogger! You will need to copy the URL address of the image and paste it into the code below.
  • Now you will need to copy the following code:
<img src="INSERT IMAGE URL ADDRESS HERE"/style='border: none; background: transparent;'>
  • Now you will need to go into your layout page and click on Settings.

  • Once in Settings click on Formatting:
  • Scroll down to Post Template and paste the code from above in the box and click the Save Setting button.
(To enlarge images click on the pictures)

  • Enjoy your new post signature!
FYI: Your signature will not appear on previous posts. It will only appear on posts from this point on. There is away to add your signature to all your posts, however it's not quite as simple as this! If there's enough interest on how to permanently add a signature to all your posts I'll write up a tutorial on how to do so in the near future!

I recently mentioned in a previous post, on my personal blog, I've been reading the blog An Ordinary Miracle. This is an incredible family that has been through a lot these past few years with trying to complete their family! They have a sweet boy named Owen, who they adopted from Russia a couple of years ago. They are now in the process of adopting a little girl from South Korea who they've named Lily Soo!! They are raising money in order to bring Lily Soo home! They hope to be able to have her home by her first birthday in November!

For a couple of months now I've really felt the Lord calling me to use my hobby of Blog design for His glory! I have never charged for any of the blog design or blog services I have done thus far! I would however like to help this family bring Lily home so I thought I would do a Buttons for Lily Soo Sale!!

This sale will be for this week only and 100% raised will be donated to Bring Lily Home Fund!! I will transfer the total amount raised next Sunday, July 25th.
