New Fall Fashion for My Blog

I was growing tired of my blog's look, so I thought I'd change it up a bit. I browsed the options Blogger offers, but couldn't find one I loved, so I decided to design a new one on my own. I'm not sure I'm totally satisfied with this one either, but we'll try it out for awhile. For some reason, I can design something for a client or friend and I'm pleased with the outcome. However, I can't seem to create a design I'm happy with when it's for me.

Maybe that's why I have completely procrastinated painting anything for Abby Kate. I've painted countless pieces of furniture and canvases for friends, family and e-bay sales, but I'm saddened that I can't get motivated to paint something for my own daughter! I literally have a large blank canvas that I stare at everyday, hoping to get some inspiration to paint something for the nursery. Any ideas? Comment away!

Casey- you must teach me. I have concured the myspace world learning codes but for some reason can't figure out how to do it on here. Let me know how to do this- I'd love to make some changes to mine! It looks great!

I like your face lift! Do you use software, or design it writing in html, etc.?

About the painting, I'm always partial to portraits of myself! haha. . . just kidding.

Case--Been trying to think of some ideas for you. Check out this website I was sending it to you mostly for the princess banner motif (in your colors, of course) but there are actually MANY others on there that I love! Some of them don't look too hard to do. I may change one up a bit and do it for a friend of mine. Let me know what you think--and you certainly MUST show us the finished product!
You need to email me the dates you will be in Kentucky so we can get the holding party planned. I am super excited and will be all moved by that time.
Have you talked to Carrie? She picked up her proofs from me last week but I haven't heard from her. I am interested to know if she likes them.

Hope you are doing great! I had to stop reading your last post after the first paragraph! Too scary!! She'll be worth it though. They all are.

Yes- I can't find one I really like. I think I'm happy with this one for awhile- it's green. The new beta blogger is so cool! Have you upgraded yet?! You can do a lot more cool stuff with it. Check it out!
