Oh and just for fun...
I made a button for my blog

What do you think?
I'm still trying to figure out how to add the the text box with the html. I have the code I just don't know how to add it in the text box below the button. Any hints would be appreciated. Kathie at my net finds offered a site with instructions. Thank you Kathie, I will check into it. It's here Shabby blogs tutorial. After reading through it quickly, it looks pretty easy (just have to up load the photo to photobucket and fill in the blanks). I'll be back with the code soon, in case you want to grab it:)

Rachel said...

Hi. I'm stopping by from SITS.

Cool giveaway. The little owl on the chalk box is adorable! If I could choose anything, though, i would choose a bunch of grapes/grapevines.

Rachel said...

I visited your etsy shop. It is really hard to choose a favorite, they're all great. I like the variety.

My favorite might be the "Rustic Recycled Wood Frame."

Kristine St Clair said...

I love the owl box. A monogram, something patriotic, a gingerbreadman, or even a ladybug would be cute too!

Ohhhh....an owl and a chalkboard! 2 of my most favorite things in life! Kathy at My Net Finds pointed me your way and boy am I glad she did!

I am not very good about following, but I did go to your Etsy shop and am LOVING, LOVING, LOVING the faux bronze framed chalkboard. As for the saying, I would write something motivational on it like a word that inspired me. I am liking the word "Create" right now.

I will be back often, so glad I found you!
