I'm playing with my blog >^..^<

I went searching for how to change things about my blog in the blogger questions forum...lots to read!
If you want to change your blog, the info takes you step by step through how to do it!
I also found a free place for backgrounds in the FAQ segment and started there. Want to check the site out? Click here:
Then I expanded my column widths and tried to make it three columns, but liked it better as two, so restored it.
I will play more later, but I'm liking the change so far!
Don't be afraid to play with your set up...just make sure you do as the recommend and back up your existing template to your hard drive so you can always restore it if you aren't happy with your changes.

School is back in session :O) :O) :O)

Don't get me wrong...I love my daughter dearly! I'm just a bit tired of the "Mamma, I'm sooo bored! There' nothing fun left to do..." that I've been getting for the last two weeks. Rachel is delighted that she got the teacher she wanted and that her nemisis from last year moved away, so school is now sooo cool! Yippeee...can you see me doing the happy dance in my chair?
Anyway, I now have a few hours a day that I get to play, so I've been catching up on a few unfinished projects. There are sew many the I want to start on!
I have a few Pix to share today, and will post some more tomorrow...batteries need charging, agian...LOL!
Picture #1 is of the Pin Dolls I did for a swap over at Doll Street...
Picture #2 gave me the idea for my pin dolls above...I started Kate Erbach's Merna Takes a Test Drive Class over at Crafty collage back in June? and haven't had a chance to work on it...the head wrapped in the pink and aqua is my small head for the little mermaid my Merna will be holding on her fishie (we had our family pic done in caricature at Disney World last year, and I thought it would be fun to use my version of those faces on the mermaids...this one is my Rachel)
The second face in the picture is the one that Rachel drew...isn't it adorable? She is supposed to draw me a body and arms and legs so I can make it into a doll for her...she's just been "too busy to craft!" since school started :O)
Next picture is of "Lake Superior Splash"...she's my little mer that is patiently waiting for me to finish the seahore she is supposed to me sitting on...maybe next week???

Next, I have a picture of a little wally dolly I did for my bulletin board in my sewing room:

And last, but not least...I'm working on a "Fire and Ice" project that pooped into my head one night when I couldn't sleep. I've started the "Ice Queen" and have the plan for my fire portion to be the "Fire King"...just have to get it in gear and draw him out :O) Here is a sneak peak on what I've done on her so far:
I hope you enjoy my new pix...I'm off to go play with dolls!

Have a sew happy day,
