Blog Makeover

My little guy took an early nap today (he usually naps while I'm at work), so I had some time on my hands. I've been wanting to redo my blog header, so I did that and got a little carried away...I redid pretty much everything! Here's the new header:
I took advantage of Picnik while I still could to get the tree in the banner and used Photoshop for the rest of it.

I couldn't stop there,though. I also created a button that I'm super excited about! It's available below and on my sidebar. Super exciting!

 Taking Time To Create

If you've got a button but aren't sure how to share the html code, you should check out this tutorial. It was so helpful and from the looks of it, it's helped a lot of people!

This was as far as I got during the nap, but I decided at work that I should change a couple more things to go with the new header, so I changed the background color and created new social media icons/buttons:

If you need help with creating social media icons, this tutorial from Sweet Verbena was super helpful. She uses Picnik, but I'm sure you can get around that. :-)

I'm super excited about the new look and hope you like it too!

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
