Let me start by saying I'm feeling much better, thanks. You all are so kind and supportive, and your words of encouragement on my last post have been so very much appreciated. You're all invited to sit at the adult table when I'm crowned queen of the universe. Print this post and bring it with you; it's your ticket in and can not be transferred, duplicated, or hopped on by deranged ninja kangaroos. I mean that.
OK, now on to business.
I'm changing my blog layout, because that's the sort of thing I do when I'm procrastinating cleaning the bathrooms (or procrastinating anything).
And, let me just say: Holy mother of bad taste, Batman! It's not going well.
First, I've settled on the pink that is currently making your eyes cross. It won't last. I feel about pink the way I feel about salmon: I love it right up to the minute it's making me gag. We're talking zero to barfing in under 6 seconds. This particular color has a shelf life of 48 hours, max.
(Note: It is now several hours later, and I have replaced the above mentioned pink with the very cute birdies. They are here on sufferance; I'm still shopping. That is all. Please continue.)
Second, I've forgotten how to add cute doo-dahs. I think there's a web site, the cutest blog something something...
But does anyone have some places I can go that are in my price range (free) and do not under any circumstances reflect the caliber of my personal decorating skills? I mean, if I could do this on my own, my scrapbooks would actually be books, and not file folders full of - duh - scraps.
For that matter, I would be willing to advertise the crap out of your website on my oh-so-famous blog if you would just volunteer to help me put together something that doesn't cause seizures when you look at it too long.
(Look! 47 followers! Forty-seven people actually willing to say, "Yes, I read this nonsense and I don't care WHO knows it mostly because my profile name and picture are both completely fake and if you still manage to figure out who I am I'll totally deny following the Backordered Life lady's blog or maybe pretend I was trying to follow Kristina's blog and hit the wrong button!" That's loyalty you can take to the bank, folks!)
Anyway, this post is open to suggestions and ideas for great blog decor that doesn't cost much and can be handled by someone whose place on the technological evolutionary chain is somewhere between "matter unorganized" and "trilobite".
Please include insultingly explicit instructions on how to carry out your suggestions. Assume I know nothing. Assume you're explaining this to an amoeba. An amoeba with an embarrassingly short attention span. And the tendency to accidentally reformat her hard drive. THAT is the amoeba you're explaining these things to.
Let the creativity FLOW!! (From you, I mean...)
