I Did It!

So, I was lurking on Heidi's blog at Vacuuming In High Heels And Pearls, when I came upon a site she found with pics to change your blog header. I have tried in the past but never could figure out how to change my header. So I popped over to the site and got directions. Turns out I figured out how to actually use my own pics for putting on my header, AND, I figured out how to actually change the header! I realize that for most of you out there in bloggerland that this is no big deal to you, but for me it is a VERY BIG THING! I've been wanting to "personalize" my blog ever since I started it, and still have not been able to do much except use pre-made templates from Blogger or Pizam. But now that I can change the header, maybe I can actually figure out how to change the rest of the template. (Well, one can dream, can't they? lol) If anyone out there knows how to change the template, and can put it in terms that a computer-challenged nerd like me can understand, please share. It would make me so happy - :).
I guess that's about all for today, unless I manage to get some changes made. Lemme know what ya'll think, okay. TTFN

Hi Brenda, now that you know how to do that could you point me in the right direction. I would like to make the picture I have on my banner bigger. You know, like yours, with just the pic and not all the extra space. I, too am bloggy challenged. I'd appreciate it! If you'd like I can walk you thru the glitter text one.
Have a great day!
Brenda too!

No, this really is a big deal. I am really backward with technical stuff and I don't know how to do this. I haven't hit the point that I want a change yet, but I know it's coming and I don't know how to do it.

Congratulations!!

Jennifer

I'm still blog challenged but don't care enough to do anything about it. sigh

those are the cupcake cuddlers from the partea planner only I used the small doilies to fit around a tiny cupcake.

find a jar or tube that is the same diameter the cupcake will be. wrap a doily around it. tie a bow around it while still on jar. secure back of ribbon with a drop of hot glue. pull it off slip baked cupcake still in it's liner right inside.
