Check It Out!

Woohoo! I adore this new background and header from "Cute n Cool". I'm amazed at how simple it was to put it here...I am so lame when it comes to bloggie html stuffs. I'd still like to figure out how to put my blog title back in an appropriate size and font.

I think today will be picture day. Gonna break out the digital cameras, go outdoors, and take some pics just to prove to my readers that I really do knit, crochet, spin, tat, cross stitch and quilt. The down side will be my utter embarrassment at the number of UFO's I have accumulated as well as the number of finished objects I've never done anything with. The up side will be that I will have blog fodder enough for many future blog posts.

Great News! After seven months of having no wheels, I will finally be able to get the transmission replaced in my Dodge Grand Caravan sometime in the next couple of weeks. Yes, peeps, this means I can finally get a life. I know my son will be thrilled as well, cuz this means I won't be underfoot all the time.

More good news! One of my coworkers recently got an iPhone. Now he doesn't need his iTouch anymore and is selling it to me cheap. I have it this weekend to try it out and OMG am I having fun with this new toy. I already have an older model shuffle and a fifth gen 80G iPod, but this iTouch is just a bundle of awesomeness-I can plurk, twitter and facebook from it.

Well, gonna stop blabbing and get on with the photo session-stay tuned for the embarrassment of riches in the form of a zillion fibery UFO's.


  1. Your new header and background is awesom! Don't ya just LOVE cutencool!?! I do! They have darling blog backgrounds and you're right...they are easy to put on the blog!

    Oh, maybe this will help with your blog title:

    Click on "customize" at the top of the blog
    then "layout"

    Click on "edit" for the header (at the top of the layout page.

    At the bottom of that pop up menu for editing the header where it says "Placement" select the option that says "Behind title and description".

    That is supposed to put whatever image you have behind the title.

    I hope that helps. If not then leave a comment on cutencool's blog post with the header or if she has an email address available on her blog maybe she can help you. Let me know if that helped or not. Good luck! :)

  2. I can hardly wait to see all of your pics! I love this background! blues and browns are my favorite! I didn't see this when I was looking for a background. . .
    That's exciting about the iTouch. I have an iphone it has been almost a year and I am still trying to figure out how to use it. My 3 yr old is better at it than I am.

  3. Tatting Chic, thanks for the tips. I managed to make most of the changes I wanted but can't figure out how to center the blog title "Return to Splendor". Might have to enlist my software developer daughter to help me with that.

    EnlightenedByAngels, I apologize for the lack of PC has all the software for both cameras but it is stubbornly refusing to boot up. I hope to either get it fixed soon or I'll be making a trip to the dreaded storage unit to excavate for the cords and know what they say about the "best laid plans of mice and men"...well, mine have definitely gang aft aglee!

  4. I adore the look of your blog!! Yoiu sound like me, I need a different banner because the one I made is so lame! LOL

  5. To change font size, color, type, go to customize
    then font syle, color
    pick blog title, change color, then style, size and click center for alignment

    you can then scroll down and pick blog headings, etc and change those.

    I have a similar layout on my blog. Love her stuff.
    You have a great blog also.
