Having fun with blog design!

Thought I would share with you all how I have been designing my blog if anyone happens to be curious!

First, I got the basic template from Jenieshell - and have been changing it up from there so it looks a bit different than how it started.

Trying to figure out how to work with CCS code is sort of a trial and error thing for me, but I found the tutorials at Shabby Blogs (and random google searches) extremely helpful.
Notice the signature at the bottom of each post, I made that on - I just picked a font, but you can draw your own (using a computer mouse, as if anyone could make that look good), or scan in a handwritten signature! Pretty cool. I had to put a code somewhere so it appears every time and Shabby Blogs explained how to do that here.

Also, notice the "About Me" page up on top. I hope to add more pages soon! :)
Now, for my favorite part of the blog, my beautiful header up top. I actually designed it at, had it emailed to my self full size, cropped it in Picasa, and Ta-Da!
 Thanks for looking! Hope you are liking what you see! :)
