"I'm Walking on Sunshine,Baby!"
I have spent about 12 hours trying to fix up this little blog of mine. It looks OK, but it isn't what I want.(no comments from the peanut gallery about how I am never happy and change the design every month:). Anyway, I figure my "work time" is worth at least $20 an hour. and that 12 hours comes out to $240. Say what? I am done.
If you know me at all you know I am cheap....I will work my but off to uncover codes, learn how to widen, align, add, delete...all of it. But I am now waving the white flag.
I will take the money I earned from selling my creations and put some of that into making this blogall that I want it to be. And you know what? It feels good. I am not a blog designer, I am a DIY'er, crafter, furniture refinisher, dirty hands builder, and that is what I want to spend my time doing. So, I think I found a designer, but I am keeping mum till I am sure because I have that Bvlgari giveaway-still going on my the way if you are interestedin offering me a new suggestion and I end up choosing your designer!
Now that we have that big issue resolved, let's get on to some awesome projects I have found on my favorite blogs this past week.
I am making these for the kids at my next party...well, the adults too!
made these adorable and yummy hot chocolate dippers!
I have to try this paint finish on a dresser that is sitting in my garage right now.
