My Horrible Blog

My blog is looking HORRIBLE at the moment. I’ve been thinking for ages how fed up I was getting with the old background – I’ve had it since I first started, and it’s feeling pretty tired these days, and really doesn’t express who I am, so I decided to revamp it. I’ve designed a nice background in Serif CraftArtist Platinum, using my own photos, including some pictures of my own work.

Some time ago my friend Wendy sent me some instructions how to change the background, and I have been trying since last night, absolutely without success – the picture is coming out much too small, and if I try and change the size of my blog and the columns in the layout editor, nothing will fit.

I’m at the hair tearing stage now, and have emailed Wendy for some urgent help – and if I can’t sort this out, it will either go on looking quite ’orrible, or I’ll have to resort to another pre-made one, which I really don’t want to do.

So my apologies everyone for allowing such an eyesore to appear in my name in Blogland!! Hopefully it won’t be for too long.

  4. Hi Shoshi, Thank you for the wonderful ideas re making cogs from a mould. Have looked at your past posts and got some great ideas. You are a wealth of craft information. Hope your blog troubles sort out soon. Have a wonderful easter.

  5. Good luck with your blog background! I keep thinking about changing mine, too, but so far I just haven't had the time.

  6. Ohooo my...if i change mine I have to think about changing the typing colour, coz it's black, so although I type in black (when I do the comes out white on the published post....I practised on my 'practise blog' and now I can't see the posts, even though the background is lighter!
