First blog background!!

After many, many hours of playing around and researching a few things, I have finally completed my first original blog background and header.

In all fairness, this is a compilation of a few freebies from digital scrapbooking sites, so I didn't create the elements, but I did finally figure out how to put them together in the correct format for blog background use. It seemed SO basic and simple when people use The Cutest Blog on the Block and such places for backgrounds. And that's not a slam against them! No! I just like to play with this stuff, both the digi-scrapping and the html codes, css sheets, etc, so I figured I could come up with something.

So if you're in a reader, come on over and take a peek when you have a minute. There's still room for improvement and some bugs I need to figure out (so if you see something screwy in your viewing screen size or something, let me know), but for now, I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt!

I could SO spend hours and days doing nothing but this. Have to put the laptop down. Must get up and clean kitchen.


  1. Wow! Looks great! Wonderful video of Braska today, too.

  2. So COOL! I see another at home business in the works? =)

  3. I love this's very pretty. and I'm with Jen - I think this could be a money maker :o)

  4. Very cute! I so wish I understood how to do this kind of thing.

  5. I love it!!! I am like that, too...I could spend forever playing with all that stuff. Sometimes I think it would be fun to be on blogspot again, but have been happy with wordpress. Good job!

  6. You did a great job. Your computer art design is another indication that you are your father's daughter! :o)
    Glad you and Braska seem to be doing better! Love you!!

  7. It looks great! And I added Kinlee to my reader :)

    Can I hire you?? :)

  8. You are a smartie - I could never figure out something like that :)

  9. whoah!! looks really really good!!! job well done, RK - you're a natural! I'd love to learn how to do this stuff, cuz atm all i am able to do is paste someone else's cleverness into my blog template... i love 'cutest blog on the blog' and it's great for now, but i know i could do so much better if i only knew how...
    any pointers???
