Pardon the dust

I’m in the midst of a little bloggy overhaul.

I apologize to anyone who stopped by yesterday before I figured out my header (and you had to scroll over 3 full screens to see it all). I know nothing about html or pixels or design. Anyone want to help? (Only sort of kidding.)

I’ll be updating my blog list sometime this weekend.

Want to be included? Leave me a comment with your blog address.

And because posts are always better with pictures, here’s my grandpa reading to Bennett yesterday.

  4. I would love to be on your list, my blog is new and about the organic, crunchy side of life(crafting, organic gardening, organic cooking, alternative medicine, breastfeeding and cloth diapering, making your own bath products, homeschooling, and my adventures with kids who are very food sensitive) I know exactly how you feel, it took me three tries to make my blog into a 3 column and my header still needs some major work. I love your header, its awesome!! I still need to find the time to move all of my favorite blogs and buttons from my other blog, so much to do, so little time.

  5. I would love to be included as well. (thanks to the others who left their sites I actually have the courage to do this!). My blog is a place for me to showcase my crafty creations and others that I want to recreate.

  60. I LOVE your new button! It's great! How do you get the scrolling buttons, I would love to do that with mine. Also I'd love to be included in your list. I've had a cake blog for year, but just recently started my craft blog, recently like this month!

  61. I very recently started a craft blog because my husband is getting deployed to Iraq and I found that I have a lot more time on my hands with him preparing to leave. And I know I'll have a ton of time to do all sorts of projects while he's gone. Plus it'll keep me busy and sane while he's away. So there's not much on there right now, but I plan crafting a bunch of crap soon. ;)

  62. I would love to be included, crafiting and sharing ideas are a great way to burn some creative steam.
