It is New It is Done, Tell me what you think

I know one thing I need to get back to work!
Redoing a blog can be time consuming

I like my new banner wanted it wider but did not want to 
attempt it right now
Had several ask me what I used I downloaded PhotoScape FREE
Made my banner but did not want the last three photos on the bottom

So used my Photo Explosion program and simply cropped the
last three photos out

Then I went into Online Image Editor FREE
and resized it to 650 wide
Then when I uploaded it on blogger I unclicked the box
shrink to fit and there you have it

I then went into advanced settings on template
and followed the instructions on
Cutest blog on the Block blog secrets

See, it is a good thing I can not afford Photo Shop or I would
never get any work done LOL
I can see myself playing with this too often

So what do you think? I used one of bloggers background pictures


  1. Fantstic and gunna do one tomorrowLOL..THANX FOR THE SHARE..Hugs X

  2. Love it! I'm going to have to try and make a new banner for my blog with my baskets!

  3. It really does look wonderful, Brenda. I think my banner is 934 wide. If you can save it for about that size, you don't have to shrink but it sure is tricky to get these things right! I like what you have...GREAT JOB! I didn't sew any today! EEEEE!!! ♥♥♥

  4. I love your new banner and the print is much easier to read. Us folks with bifocals don't see to good. I am going to check out the tips you gave on how to customize. Thanks for sharing.
    Country at heart

  5. It's very pretty, Brenda. I like your background color on your blog and the font colors all work beautifully.
    I think the header is great, filled with your awesome creations.
    You're a smart gal to figure all of this out. I'm a dumb bunny when it comes to computer things.

  6. You are s tech talented. Looks great . Really pleasant to the eyes. Darlene

  7. Brenda it looks how you find the time ??? I never could have figured all that out by myself ! And thank you so much I got my sheep yesterday I LOVE THEM , o so adorable !!! Have a great evening ! hugs lil raggedy angie

  8. Very nice and like the colors, nice variations.
    I need to learn how to do blog backgrounds, I used to do web ones, just need to learn the code.


  9. Ooohh Brenda, I like it a lot! Especially your banner. I need to make me a banner with our wood crafts in it. Nicely done :o)

  10. It looks wonderful Brenda!! Would love to be able to do this for my blog, but I am clueless, lol. Have a great week!

    hugs, Trish

  14. I think it looks great.
    I am to scared I will erase my blog if I play around with it, lol.

  15. Much, much easier to read and the header is gorgeous. I made my own, too. I used a combo of Picnik and Picasa. And just when I get used to that, Picnik is closing down. *sigh*
    Have a great week, B!

  16. Your new blog page is bright, refreshing and easier to read. I know some of the gals prefer the dark colors (primitive) but the lighter shades are easier on the ole eyes. You got it right. I will check out these sites as well.

  17. Fabulous!!!

    I always dread changing backgrounds and having to re-ajusting everthing~ very time consuming.
