New Blog Design & New Button

OH.MY.WORD!  After realizing that I didn't need to pay for a blog design, I decided to try it out for myself.  It's amazing what you can find on google searches and blog tutorials!  Several hours later {SERIOUSLY!!} I have the most wonderful blog EVER!  I absolutely love it.  It is bright, bold, and beautiful.  I am still working on it (trying to figure our how to get the small shadow off my images.. if you know how to do that, please let me know)!  The one thing I am most excited about are my tabs.  They are sooo cute!

So... what do you think about it?  Don't forget to grab my new button & update!

BTW- as fun as it was, I am not interested in getting into blog design right now.  Maybe later when I have extra time or put together a file with all the necessary codes.  Now I know why custom blog templates are so expensive... so time consuming!!

  7. SO cute~! I just redesigned my own blog, too. Definitely a pain, but so worth it! Do you remember where you found a tutorial for your tabs? I couldn't figure that part out! =)

  8. If you bookmarked the tutorials you used, would you mind sharing? I have been trying to figure it out but the methods I have followed haven't worked?! Your design looks fantastic!

  10. I made mine, too, but ended up cheating as I call it. I made the graphics parts, then just uploaded them to photobucket and used the link to put it in the blog. However, I want tabs!! how'd you get the tabs in there??

    1. I wouldn't call that cheating :) That's the way I did mine too. If you can email me at terri.renee09@gmail.com I will forward you the directions. I actually just sent them to someone else. BTW- your blog looks great.
