New Blog Look

I apologize in advance for this boring, technical post. I changed my blog look a little bit today. The floral print in the background is actually a fabric swatch from Ella Grace's nursery. I learned this trick from Kelly (she has the directions posted somewhere on her blog). I love playing around with the look of my blog, but I must admit I get a bit nervous because last time I tried to change it, I lost all my links. :(

I think I have finally figured out the "language" in the HTML. Now, I can just go in and change out the picture I want to use for the background. I was a tad tired of my old look (I may go back to it sometime though) and had the idea that it would be sweet to have Ella's nursery fabric as my background. I was so excited it actually worked. I do wish there were more font colors to choose from though.

ANYWAY, I also came across this website I wanted to share that has some adorable "free" blog backgrounds. They are a little different than Pyzam. They have the 3-D look and offer anything you can think of including holiday themes. If you are interested, you can click here.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

I like it! It looks good with the brown. Thanks for the link to the blog background. I'm getting sick of mine, too, and will be looking for something new soon.

I love your new look! I wish I could figure out how to change stuff. I am so computer illiterate! Maybe one day I'll have the time to try and play around with it.
