Dressing up the Blog

I've made a couple of changes to the blog -- if you are viewing this in a reader, please click through to see the new updates! 

First, I changed the background.  I got this digital scrapbook pack of chevrons from this etsy shop.   Then I simply changed my blog template to Simple and uploaded the blue chevrons as the background design.

I also used Photovisi and Picnik to make a new header.  I'm so sad that Picnik is closing, I was just getting comfortable using it -- figures! 

Lastly, I wanted to make my own social media buttons, but couldn't come up with a design that I liked.  I found these buttons on etsy with this seller and I'm really happy with them.  Just what I wanted :)

I had a lot of fun spiffing up my little blog.  I'd love to become better at it - does anyone have any suggestions/websites/tips for me?  Thanks!!

Oh yeah, and one more thing I did - I created this blog signature using My Live Signature...super easy and it adds a nice, little touch :)

Happy Sewing!

Hi there!  So, I took a little bit of an unplanned blog break - nothing happened, I guess I just needed it.  I really missed posting here though :)  So, I'm back!  I think that I stressed myself out of blogging....I had all of these great posts and design ideas and lots of things I wanted to make and share, but I just haven't had the time.  I did spend a little bit of time working on my blog design, but the only thing I keeping right now is the chevron background (I'm obsessed with chevrons lately!).  I'll be working on some buttons and a new header over the weekend and I'm going to work on a sewing project so I have something to share!  Thanks for sticking around while I disappeared!  :):)  Happy Friday!
