A Makeover & Guest Post Shout-out

I'm sharing my Beaded Garden Stake tutorial over at lolly jane today.  Make sure you head on over there to get the deets.  

P.S. While  you're over there, check out some of their awesome tutorials.  Those are two talented chickies over there.  Thanks for having me, Kelli & Kristi!

Now on to the makeover.  I have just about finished my blog makeover, and the best part is, I DID IT ALL BY MYSELF!!  Well, Charles helped with a couple of issues.  I really tried to do most everything on my own, but when I just couldn't get something worked out, my knight in worn-out Converse came to my rescue.

The bulk of the work was done tonight this morning (I'm writing this at 3:26 AM).  By bulk, I mean my background and new header.  I just love them!!

I know that some of you know how to maneuver the twisty roads of design, but I know there are probably more of you out there who are like me when it comes to things like this.  If there is enough interest, I'd be willing to compile all of my sources for the tips and tricks I used into a kind of tutorial.  Since it's something that would probably take a while, I'd like to get some feedback as to whether this is something you guys would like to see.  Lemme know in the comments.

Y'all have a good night.  Errr... I mean morning!

*  I do have another "color of the week" post coming.  I should get it posted either Thursday or Friday.

  1. Visiting from Lolly Jane..super cute blog!! =}

  2. I'm afraid to change things around on my blog because I'd never be able to change it back if I changed my mind. That's why my blog doesn't change with the seasons or holidays either. You've done a nice job on your blog.

  3. It looks great! I love the background pattern!

  4. Y_E_A_H_!!! I am so excited to see this!! As you know, I stayed up until 2 AM the other night working on mine. Thanks to you and the sources you posted, I was able to pull it off!! So thankful. I TOTALLY think that you should share your sources. It was a huge gift for me. I too had to have a little technical help in the end from a friend in graphic design. Your page loots awesome! Congrats!

  9. Really love your new look!! YES-YES and YES... I want to re-do my blog so bad -I know the basics (just enough to make me dangerous) but I am too nervous to jump in and go for it. I would be soooo interested in any tip, tricks and resources you could share.
