Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I've been working a day ahead all week.  I knew the DAY... but the DATE had me kerfluffled.  That's what happens when the week starts the way mine did. 

A New Layout!
I did a new layout.  I actually quite like this one.  It's a picture of me taken just after I lost my Mom.  A week after.  It's the outfit I bought to go to her funeral.  That's an important note, because I wanted to please her.  It mattered to me a great deal.  :)  I mean.. NOW I think she didn't care.  She was ok.  But THEN.. it was really important.  However.. Here it is!


HELP!?!
I decided to try and update my blog.  I came across a great site... http://www.shabbyblogs.com and saw that they had some great stuff.  Soooo... I tried to use them.  However... As you can see... it's not working.  Does anyone know how I can get it so that I have a solid background from left to right?  I hate that it's all skinny in the middle. I see other blogs, and I cannot get mine to go like that.  Please????

Giveaway
I have to photograph some stamps tonight.  I'll be giving them away this week... right here.  :)  So you might want to pay attention!!

Wonderful layout. Wish I could help you with the blog. I have never used their templates. Good luck!

First - fantastic layout.

Second - your blog looks good to me. Is it the white area you're concerned with? If so - it's the template you're using in blogger, not the shabby blogs background template. Make sure you're not using a 3 column template. That should do the trick.

I'm no help on the blog formatting thing, but your page is just lovely!

I have been using the Blogger in draft.

it seems to be much more friendly on editing the backgrounds and has a really simple custimization area. Then you can go to the layout area and put in the code for the background you want.

Hope that helps.
