I found a fantastically wonderful website - two of them actually - that saved my sanity as well as my (formerly) AWFUL blog design. My heart went pitter-pat when I stumbled on the beautiful and FREE! graphics from The Graphics Fairy. Oh how I swooned! And dug for hours through all her clip art. Her FREE clip art. *fans self with handkerchief*
In other related-ish news, I was contacted a few days ago with an offer for a free ad spot on Craftcount. At first I was all suspicious-like, wondering who was pulling my leg and how hard I should kick them. But it seems my cranky doubtfulness was misplaced! So I jumped about for a while and made my husband come and look at the email (while he was watching some dudes beat each other up for a shiny belt, no less) (he was happy for me, but swift to depart) and then I started to worrrrrrry.
What if my ad is ugggggly?
What if nobody viiiiiiiisits my shoooooop?
Why is my hair so friiiiiiiiiizzy?
(If I had smoother hair I could make a prettier ad. That's just how I roll, peeps.)
So I fretted for a while, pulled my hair into a ponytail, and set to work! But. My images were all on my laptop, which is cantankerous. *sigh* My life is hard. (If only I had good hair!) Some swearing and stressing and picture locating commenced, and then magical finding of previously mentioned websites-of-awesome happened, and now I present you with my completed 150x100 pixel ad!
I'm pretty proud of myself, I must admit. Especially since I am a dork and can only use Paint to create and edit graphics. I would love love love your feedback - even negative feedback... I've stared at it for so long I've lost perspective. And my hair is messy. So. You know. I need all the help I can get. Or a hairstylist.
My add will be running on Craftcount from April 27th through April 30th! Weeee!
