Just a Quick Note

So if you look on my blog and see the note in the upper left hand corner...I have to find a new blog background by July 23rd...so pray I can figure that out. I don't want to change my background. I love the one I have. I guess the website is going to a new host or something...so I have to change the code on my blog background.  As long as it's free, I don't mind changing it or keeping it the same...agggh...technology :( :) :) :) :)

Update...so I just grabbed a fresh code for my blog background.  It should work!!! Please hang in there with me and maybe flag my blog URL on your computer...just in case...but I think I did everything right, so it should work. Otherwise, I may change my blog background.....OH, I don't do well with computer changes like this...

That's the news from Oregon. Love and hugs, Heather :)

Good morning Heather,
I had the same note on my blog this morning. I just went ahead and changed my background-I do that pretty regularly any way! I had the help of my daughter to walk my through it though.
I hope you have a blessed day. Sheila

@Parsley...thanks...I just grabbed a new code...but I'm thinking I may change the background all together. I'll need to find a new header though...

@Sheila...Thanks...maybe I will change my blogger background as soon as I find another that I really, really like. I did grab the new html code for my current background...but I guess I'll know if I did it right, if it's still up there tomorrow :) :) :)

Dear Heather,
If you ever have any problems with your background feel free to let me know as I am a bit computer savvy and would be happy to help!

Also if you would like me to make you a button for you to but on the side of your blog for others to see I would be happy to do so at no cost! Just a sweet little "Thinking of you" gift you could say! :)

Blessings,

Miss Antoinette

Oh, I did forget to mention that I could try out making a header for you too! Once I know what the new background will look like! :)

Love and hugs from California

Miss Antoinette

PS. I LOVE the yarn that I think you picked out for my dish cloths! :) I will be going to Joann or some other craft store soon to get some for yours! :)

@Miss Antoinette...

You are such a sweetheart...I'll let you know tomorrow if I'll need help with the blog background. I'm just worried that it'll mess everything up tomorrow...I don't want to lose any of my blog settings...ie)followers, posts etc...I did go to the website and copy the new html code and paste it in my design layout...so I did everything right according to their directions..We'll see...but I may change it soon anyway...

YES, PLEASE HELP ME CREATE A BUTTON :) :) :) I WOULD LOVE THAT, SINCE I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO IT!!! I'LL MAKE SURE YOU GET CREDIT FOR THAT!!!!! CHECK OUT THESE THREE BLOGS FOR INSPIRATION...THE BEEHIVE COTTAGE, SHABBY CATS AND ROSES AND ROSE CHINTZ COTTAGE....I LOVE ROMANTIC, COUNTRY, VICTORIAN...WELL, YOU KNOW MY STYLE BY NOW :) :) :) YEAH, SO EXCITED, BECAUSE I WAS ACTUALLY THINKING I NEED A BUTTON BY NOW.

I hope you like the colors I picked. I'm going to go to their wesite...lily sugar n cream and see what other colors are avaiable..I just had to pick from what Joann's had available...but I think you'll be p lease. I hope so..oh i had questions about selling my knitting on Etsy. I'll email you about that..

Lots of love and hugs from Oregon, Heather..

p.s. first set of dishclothes is almost finished...but i'm making more because the yarn was on sale today :) :) :)...sending them all to you!!!

Hi Heather,

I had a similar issue with my blog a few weeks ago. Only I didn't get advance notice. I just went in one day and found a blank screen, so I clicked on the blog template site, and I discovered that they had problems with their Photo Bucket account. So, I had to change my template...or else have a blank screen.

You left a comment/question on Brenda's blog about Etsy sales. I wanted to let you know that my husband has had an Etsy store for 2 years now. He and my son do woodworking, and they make drop spindles, for spinning your own yarn. They have only positive things to say about Etsy. They love it.

Hope you're having a wonderful day,

@Patti/Fill My Cup with Beauty..

I'm glad I"m not alone. I went and copied the new HTML code...but as you've probably noticed by now..when you go to my blog, it takes forever to upload the background. That's a little annoying to say the least...and not fair to the nice people who visit my blog. So I'll definitely be switching it up for sure now...


Thanks for sharing your hubby and son's experience with Etsy. I've been thinking about it for awhile as a means fo bringing in some extra income for my dad and I...but I'm not sure if what I knit is good enough to sell or not. I'm a little shy in that regard :) :) :)

Well, I'm off to find a new blog background!!! Wish me luck!!!

Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Miss Heather,

Here is a site that has many links to web-sites that give free backgrounds that I thought might interest you! :) I find MANY to choose from so try not to be too overwhelmed ok!? :)

GREAT! Once you have your new background for your blog I will try to make it match as best as I can, in the mean time I will mess around a bit and make a few for you to see! :)

Oh you are too sweet Heather!!!! Thank you so much for the dish cloths, I know I don't have them yet but I already know I will LOVE them knowing the love and hard work being put into them!!! :)

I will look forward to your e-mail!

Blessings,

Miss Antoinette

PS. Yes, you must just be too shy as you knit and do so many other crafts so well! They are definitely Etsy worthy for sure! :)

Hi Antoinette...

yikes, I realized I didn't write back yet!!! I check out the link you gave me. Thank you. I settled on what you'll see here when you click on my blog...the background is from ShabbyBlogs.com...but the banner is from this site called "Banner of Blessings. Here's the link for that if you're interested http://bannerofblessings.blogspot.com/2008/03/blog-post_29.html

let me know when you've come up with some ideas for blog buttons. I think they'll be gorgous :) :) No worries..I'll be very happy with what you make...your photos are fabulous!!!
Oh about Skype...I"m not shy so much as maybe , well,..I don't know...no not shy...I'm just not into Skype that's all :) :) :) I prefer writing..and actually, I will actually send you a proper letter one of these days :) :) :) Have a great weekend!! I'm praying for your family and a buyer for the house!!! Hang in there. God's got your back!!! Love and hugs, Heather :)

Miss Antoinette K. said...

Thanks for the link!:)

I might work on one idea I have for your button tonight, I am so excited! You like pretty much the same things as I do so this will be much easier than I thought! :)

Love and blessings,

Miss Antoinette

Miss Antoinette,

I'm excited to see what you come up with. I just figured out how to burn my photos on to a CD...after some struggle and messing up three CDs...now we're good :) :) My head hurts. I'll write more tomorrow :) :)

Hugs, Heather :)
