Thanks for the compliment Kathi! So happy you are here with us!! All of us have a lot to learn and I speak for myself the most!

Not sure of any book or website for building a blog. When I did it I just went to blogger and started building it. The best thing is just dig in and get your hands dirty. Don't be afraid to mess anything up. It is all correctable. If I wasn't sure of something or didn't understand a term I would "google" it and find out what I needed to do. I created my own header at the top a few years ago. I would probably like to change it in the near future but I haven't taken the time to do it. I took a picture of the things I wanted to showcase for crafting and sized my pic up so it could fit for the header. Then just added it to blogger.

My best suggestion is just start it and see where it takes you. If you get hung up you can always post a question on this forum or even this thread and someone from SCS will be more than like happy to assist you.

Good luck with it!!

One thing I did notice Kathi is that I cannot seem to post a comment on your blog. I tried your last three posts and it will not bring up the comment block for me to post. Not sure if this is on your end or mine. I can however, post to other folks blogs.

Well said Dell! You just have to jump in there. My first blog is still out there in cyber space somewhere and well, in pails in comparison to this one. I've come a long ways since then and I've shifted my focus from scrapbooking to card-making. I never played in any challenges before either. I also wasn't on any design teams. Being on design teams and participating in challenges has given me something to "blog" about. On my old blog, I shared more about my personal life and it was a culmination of so many things. I wanted this one to be strictly about paper-crafting. That doesn't mean I want add some personal content here and there but, it's clear that my passion is about paper-crafting. Like Dell said, there is nothing that can't be undone. So take some chances and ask questions. Have fun!

Hello Everyone!!! I'm so sorry about the lack of updates and chatting here... but unfortunately life got in the way a bit. We found out almost 2 weeks ago now that my dad is losing his job which means things are going to be pretty tight around here for awhile that on top of me teaching at a theater summer camp and working on the summer musical at the same theater it's been nuts! But summer camp is over and so is the show and my family is working on dealing my dad's job and I just finished applying for a weekend job. I've finally gotten a chance to breathe... and update my blog!

Sorry to hear about your Dad's job Sami. Economic times our tough on everyone. I'm thankful every day that I have a job as our company just went through a major restructure and some people did lose their jobs. My hours got cut down to 20 per week but I got to keep my medical and other benefits which is really what I work for.

I've updated my blog a couple of times this week. I have had such a crazy week with 2 different companies contacting me out of the blue and offering me a DT position. At first I thought maybe someone was pulling a joke on me. But it's for real! I can't say where just yet and the second offer came today and I don't know if I'm going to accept or not. I like to pray about things before I decide. However, now that I only work 20 hours per week I sure have the time on my hands.

I think we'll be fine. My dad has his job till holloween and I'm hoping to either have a weekend job at home or a weekday job at school by then. I've only applied to Best Buy so far and I'm still thinking of applying at Jo Ann.

That's so awesome about the DT's Jennipher!! I'm going to look at some DT calls next winter/spring for next summer I think they sound like lots of fun!!!

I was able to work in my craft room today. I made 4 mini albums for some swaps that I am participating in. Amazing how much time it takes to put those together.

For some reason I am not getting all the messages from this board and just got my computer back from the shop today... posted a blog and came here... sorry I have not responded sooner to your expression of kindness!

Thanks again for the encouragement .. I will get it like I like it sooner or later and in the mean time I will have fun with your blogs and others I have discovered! Thanks for having me!

Kathi

I like to pray about things too.. mull it over and look at all sides of it... I have learned when the grass looks greener it not always is... then your in the middle of it.. but when I pray before rushing in it is God who gets the glory. Share with us when you know more! Kathi

Wow, Dell. That is a lot of mini albums!

Here's my latest layout. I dusted off the Cricut for the border.

Lisa love your layout of the Biltmore! I so enjoy visiting there.

Yes, I don't know how I managed to get all those albums done but I did. Guess I was on a roll!

Great website Kathi! TFS.

Yep, just can't get time enough to stop and post. I think the hassle of downloading pics can be time consuming for me.

I enjoy visiting all the blogs and I leave a bit of love behind when I can. However, it has become quite difficult at times to leave a comment. It almost always takes me two to three trys to get the mixed up words correct, and then, if the blog is moderated, I don't know if my comment has made it past security. I'm finding more and more blogs are using the mixed up letter to leave comments. The mixed up letters can be very hard to read when one has old eyes.

I could not agree with you more, Joyce! I hate the new word verification blogger has come up with. In my personal opinion, if you are worried about spam comments then you should just do comment moderation. Plain and simple. You see the comment before it gets posted to your blog and if you don't like it, then don't approve it. Then there are those that do word verification and comment moderation! Seriously?

Thank you Jennipher. I honestly thought I was the only one who didn't like the verifications. The new ones are really hard to decipher.
I was blogging using another forum and several of them had the verification and I couldn't get past it the letters were so piled on top of each other. I left comments on the forums. I run into it so often that blogging is becoming not fun. Is there really that much spam?

I honestly don't think so. I've been blogging since 2007 with blogger, typepad and wordpress and I've had one spam comment.

Just visited everyones blog... Laurie I love how you are getting your readership or posters up! I may try a give away after my yard sale is over and the house is on the market.. something I haven't used that others would want... I know I would have to pick up the shipping cost... so how bad do I want more commenters???

Jennipher did you find out if you are going to take the designer spots you mentioned earlier in the month???

I have been offered a guest designer spot on a new blog that is starting for weekly e-machine challenges. It is The Paper Cabana. If you wanna have some fun check it out! Or see the card I entered as inspiration for the first challenge on my blog!

Have a blessed week everyone!

I think there is if you have a high traffic blog. Like Jennipher, I have only had one or two of them.

Good Morning & Happy Labor Day Everyone!

I'm going to check out your new challenge Kathi!

OK, it sounds like you need to have an e-cutter to play along. What is that? All I have is the Big Shot & I LOVE that thing. Can I use that?

Hey Jackie... sorry for the delay in my reply I didn't get your message. You do have to have a cricut or a cameo or something like that to play with this but if you love your big shot and dies you should check out this blog... I am LOVING her stuff....Valita's Designs & Fresh Folds.

I want to get back to basics and do some of this stuff on the side... just need some of her tools. thinking about using a mouse pad that is dense foam for my shaping board until I can get a cake decorators foam board and ball tool!

Anyway, back to creating for my next challenge! Kathi

Been a crazy work week for me. Tomorrow I have to take a state certification test. Wish me luck!!! I have to get up with the chickens to drive 2 hrs to take this too. Test starts at 8:30 a.m.

I will update my blog sometime this weekend.

Kathi, would love to do your challenge but I have had so much studying to do I can't come up for air until after tomorrow.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Dell, Stop and take a deep breath... you will go to sleep on time tonight and wake up before the alarm ready to focus on last minute studying during your 2 hour drive to the test... All will work out as it should... do your best and give it your all!

As for the challenge I invited you to join this week... it goes through Tuesday and winners are posted Friday I think and the next challenge is on by then. So if you find yourself with lots of energy AFTER the test ... and have a project that is a basic color grouping and has one electronic die cut cut on it... link away! This goes for everyone in the group if you haven't seen the blog yet check it out at The Paper Cabana

Have a blessed and relaxing time Dell! And I will be praying for an A for you! lol Kathi
