Thankyou SO much Emily for your help.
I have tried and tried so many times to work out which bit of HTML script to change, so I could customize the background of my blog. Emily directed me to one of her friend's blogs, who had posted a little tutorial on how to do it... and TA DAH... a coastal theme has emerged.
I had great fun doing it, and even used some digi-scrap letters I downloaded. I don't have photoshop, so used Microsoft Paint. I'm sure there are better (or easier) ways to line up the letters etc. if I had the right software, but I was pleased with my first try.
And speaking of changing blog banners and backgrounds, Jennifer changed her blog and now has a 'Fun with Dick & Jane' theme. It is fantastic.
I was excited when I saw it as I have just discovered Michael Miller's range of 'Dick & Jane' fabric.
I made this last week. Yes, it is for me. I saw the fabric and went all nostalgic.
And am working on a project with this fabric at the moment.
One of my nieces, Jessica, had a rainbow birthday party today. It was lovely.
Bronwynne had made lots of rainbow food, and organised lots of girly craft.
My mother-in-law made these rainbow meringues for the party. A real treat.
