Welcome to February

Yes, I can't believe it either, but January's gone. I'm still pregnant, but I have hope at this point that every day is my last day in this particular state of being... let's get going, Kinlee!!!

The new backgrounds are up here and on Braska's blog, so peek in, you reader readers!

Also, two of the Valentine Makeover winners, Brigette and Jen, have theirs up already... yeah, that's right, I'm that quick! (Terri...drop me a line!!) Plus, I also had time to do one last night during the game for Cheryl. No, she didn't win in the drawing, but she's practically family (officially, one of these days!) so I did a quick one after she picked out her choices.

As far as those of you who have asked for tutorials, I do plan to do a little series to share the inside info, but probably not til March if I'm being truthful. It's not all that hard or anything, but it can be time consuming. FYI--to start, it's nice if you have Adobe Photoshop Elements 7. So check into that if you're seriously interested. It's not cheap, but it does alot. I'm sure there are other programs that can do it, but that seems to be the most common one when dealing with building with layers and communicating with HTML.

So go see the blogs to see how cute their visions came out... they all picked their kits, colors, pics, and had the last say on design. I think they all turned out well, even though they are all different. Plus, they're all super neat people, so go say hi!


  1. All of the new blogs are quite fun! Quick question, do you design your whole background then pop it into the code or is each piece/layer separately coded? I'm just trying to figure out how to get a three-column layout and which parts of the code to change. You can e-mail if it's an easy answer; otherwise I'll be patient. Thanks! I did it for my photography blog, but I just thought there might be an easier way as it was a little tricky to figure out and my pregnant brain isn't wanting to think that hard right now.

  2. How did all my girls get to be so beautifully creative when their mom is NOT? I guess they got some of their dad's genes :o)
    Looks wonderful, Honey!!

  3. It obviously skips generations or something Jan. :)

  4. You did a great job on your blogs and your friends. Maybe one day I'll learn to do it - but not any time soon. lol I keep waiting for my teenager to figure it out and just do it for me. *grin*

  5. Hang in there until your exact due date - Millie's birthday is Feb. 5!

  6. Love the new layout. Hope you have a new one added to your family very soon. I'm sure your ready,too!

  7. I sent you an e-mail this morning. Sorry it took so long - I'm SO excited that I won!

  8. Very cute! I have photoshop elements and can't get it to do squat! I need a major photoshop tutorial! LOL!
