"I'll Fix You My Pretty, and Your Little Blog Too!"

Like the new look?  Possibly still a work in progress, so you may see a few changers every now and then.  Would you believe I did most of this myself? (Armed with a digital scrapbooking kit and TONS of very helpful tutorials, of course.  I am not, and probably never will be, what you would call "computer savvy.")  

Very special thanks to:

Amanda of kevin & amanda {blog}, whose immensely helpful tutorials gave me the courage to even consider fooling with the "Edit HTML" section of the Blogger Layout.  With her guidance, I was able to:
  • Use cute fonts for my post titles and labels (tutorial)
  • Add a signature to the end of my post (tutorial)
Tips for New Bloggers for showing me how to convert my template to a three-column layout and eliminate the header outline

Megan of Shabby Blogs for the tutorial on adding post dividers

Amy Stoffel (LCC by Amy Stoffel) for creating the sweetest digital scrapbooking kit ever!  I was browsing Scrap Orchard and came across her  "Lovin From the Oven" design...it was instant love.

  1. Very cute! I have just started working with someone to do a re-vamp on mine as well! Good for you that you were able to do it all yourself! I once tried to "edit" the HTML code with BAD BAD BAD results! So I figured I would leave it up to someone who knew what they were doing. If it is beyond adding a widget I am DONE ;) Great job!

  3. Thanks everyone! :) When I get home from work tonight I'll fiddle with some sizing issues and hopefully be happy with the final layout.

    cookies and cups - editing the HTML wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Just gotta go slow and be really careful! The tutorials were a lifesaver, though I thought I'd go cross-eyed if I stared at that code for much longer. I don't know how programmers manage all day!

    Ali - you're welcome! Always glad to share, and I'm happy to have found a tutorial on how to do that myself. Been wanting to install one, but never got around to it until now!
