Bloggin'

Sam was home sick from church and my pinched nerve was acting up again, so I stayed home. I ended up doing quite a bit of study, did this frilly update on my blog (it reminds me of my Laura Ashley days in the 90's) and actually made some comments on pal's blogs. I also worked on some family history and scrapbooking. Not too bad a use of 3 hours.

I'm not sure how long this particular update will last, but I am having tons of fun experimenting with the connection between digital scrapbooking and blog design. All part of my education.

I got the notion to update from my sister's blog. At first I inadvertently picked the same background she has. That made me smile. Then I branched out on my own. The backgrounds are available here and they're free along with the instructions for changing the code. Now to put some of my own designs up.

  3. Several of my blogging friends have recently switched to these new scrapbook-themed backgrounds, and now I know where they're coming from (or at least one source). Interestingly, everyone seems to be picking spring themes. Maybe we're all just a little tired of winter? :) Anyway, I love yours and look forward to seeing your future experiments.

  4. Yes, I really like some of the cool templates, but they all stop at a certain point on the page. Maybe that doesn't matter if you screen or window is small, but I'm always reading words that are falling off the template. Hmmm . . . I'm sure Jake could fix that . ..

  6. The new template is adorable (although I would have been happy to share!). I really love the picture of the rose at the top, it reminds me of mom!

  7. VERY cute. My sister (Sarah the crafty one) has had a snappy blog like this for a long time and I've always wanted to try it. Maybe I will :)
