Barefoot-n-Rags

My inspiration has returned, and designing is back in the weather forecast. I've taken a chunk of time off from my hobbies only to come back with a smile on my face and renewed excitement about doing all things creative.

Today I'm showing off custom headers for Barefoot-n-Rags
Kara at Barefoot-n-Rags makes THE most adorable bows, among other things, to decorate your head (or other things) with! Go check out her site - or better yet, go buy something on her Etsy shop! You won't regret it.




Do you need Blog headers or Etsy store headers? Ask me!

Just some of what you can do with digital scrapbooking embellishments!
I love digital scrapbooking - just thinking about it makes me want to start scrapbooking. Or not :)

I can work with that!

If anyone has ever checked out The Cutest Blog on the Block, you'd quickly see that they have some REALLY talented people and some really cute designs. Just last week, I realized I was pretty darned sick of the same old design I'd been lugging around for months (while waiting for my computer to get fixed so I could design something new!) so I went to TCBOB for a quick fix.

To my delight, I realized they had some new stuff! (Well duh!) I added a really cool background, and then I found a matching header! Yesss! But of course the header had to get some personalization, so I added photos, text and some border and here is my end result!

See it in action (possibly for a limited time) HERE


Do you like TCBOB designs but can't figure out how to personalize it? I can help. Hit me up.

Let's play!

It's been a loooong time since I've posted anything new here (broken computer, missing photo/graphics program and the fact that life just happens), but I'm feeling the creative itch again. I'm pretty sure it's the feeling of Spring in the air! Yay for sunshine! This time, I'm tackling a new-to-me thing: Twitter Backgrounds! I'm also using a  new-to-me program that I'm still getting used to so be prepared to see better stuff later :)


I welcome questions, comments and the occasional request as time allows.

Flower Power

Ohhhh yeah.
Oh yesssss.... I love taking photos of flowers, but by golly they even look BETTER on a blog button, dontcha think? These flowers aren't mine - but one of these days maybe I'll take my own and cut them out with scissors. haha!
On another topic, Purple Moose won the Friday Freebie giveaway! She'll be sporting a new button or custom designed signature by the end of the week! Thanks to all who played along. Can't wait to do it again!

Sit Down Dana!

The title of this post is specifically directed to a very cool member of my fabulous fan club. (I don't have a fan club, I just wish I did). I have a feeling she might get excited about this one. I got to spend the day designing my wonderful daughter's blog. She's been waiting for a long LONG time for me to follow through on this. Also, the girl has got a knack for design. She agrees with everything I say! LOL Her blog is private, but if you'd like to be a reader of hers just ask - she'd love to follow your blog and increase the size of HER fan club as well - plus, her blog just looks so daggum cute!

The Secret is Out

It's Friday Freebie Day!

Oh yeah, you found me... are you excited?? The big secret this week? My good pal Heidi from Sacred & Profane is hosting a FRIDAY FREEBIE and get this - I AM THE FREEBIE! Now I won't be shipping my sassy self to you no matter how much you beg, but I will be making a snazzy new button or custom signature to the contestant who schmoozes the most. Or uh... I mean it's a random entry, but you get four chances, so come ON people - head over to her blog to read the fine print and enter! Take one of my buttons with you, and while you're at it, take Heidi's too. It needs to get more exercise.

(And since I'm all about teaching people new things, if you've never swiped a button before - the way you do it is just copy and paste the code in the drop down box below the button, and place it ever so carefully in a newly designated sidebar gadget specifically for HTML! Hope that helped, and if'n you ever need more help with newbie type stuff, look me up. I'll help ya. It's how I roll yo! *spoken like a true Heidi reader*)

Smattering of Signatures

Every blog needs a little personality - a little YOU. And what says YOU more than your own name?? Now I realize I'm a little stuck on my own name here, after all I've had it for over 35 years now and since I've finally learned how to spell it, so I've just used it as an example on all my signature tags.

Which one do YOU like best? If you enter Heidi's Friday Freebie this week, you could get one completely guilt free! If you enter... and win, that is.
Fine Print: Signature tags are available as you see them (with YOUR name of course) or Text only. I always recommend BLACK for your signature color - but will always take special color requests. If you want a custom installation on blogspot - it will cost ya. Seriously, it's time consuming.
