Hey Amanda! I tried the tutorial you posted earlier with the paper over the lens with star punched out. I have Canon Rebel XTI with the 50 mm 1.8 lens and it would never take the photo. It would do the focusing but never would take the photo. What setting did you have it on – automatic, manual, depth??? I really want to try it!

Love your Christmas Tree and all the presents!

Look forward to all the new posts I receive in my email. The tutorial on making your own blog background is my favorite and I keep your Weight Loss Story handy to read through for inspiration and they information you share is awesome. Thanks for sharing. Love your Spring and Fall digital kits. My only request is more tutorials on how to make some myself. I love my new PS, PSE and PSP software. Love your blog!

Merry Christmas!

And, now for the real reason for a comment:
You’re Mrs. Techie Technological Good at Explaining Things sooo…
Do you know how to make a cute little icon that shows up in front of your name instead of the goofy orange Blogger icon? Like the ones that Chatting at the Sky and The Nester have? Thought I’d ask you ’cause I can’t find a tutorial anywhere else.

If you can tell me this then I’m definitely adding your button to my blog. …. What’s that you say? You don’t appreciate bribery? Alright, I’m actually adding your button even without the explanation ’cause I think more people definitely need to check you out!
Thanks!

Thanks for the iphone font link. But, I’m not able to extract the font file after I download it. Have any advice? Their instructions are a little vague. LOVE your site!!!

I love your sight. I ran across it awhile back but came back to take a longer look at it. I will be back in the next couple of days to experiment with the fonts. I just started my blog and I feel like it looks very much like a “newbie”. I do have to give myself credit, I have figured out how to do all of this on my own. My neighbor paid for her layout and I can proudly say I did mine on my own…but I am always looking for ways to improve it. Thanks for your sight!
