So I guess I should check my email a little more often. I would have seen the email telling me my account was about to expire and prevented all of you losing your backgrounds for the day. So sorry about the disappearing act again. Don't worry, I just renewed the photobucket account for another year. So, until next October we should be home free! Sorry for the inconvenience.

While I am in the sorry mode I guess I should apologize for the lack of new backgrounds. I have to admit I have probably dipped my hand in one too many buckets at the same time. I stay very busy with my two little boys and all that comes with being a family gal along with all of the various other things I aspire to do. It is my goal though to get inspired and create some Christmas backgrounds to have up by Thanksgiving. Thank you all for your continued support. It means a lot! Happy Halloween!

Hey all. Sorry about the disappearing backgrounds. My Photobucket account expired, but no fear... it has been renewed. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Maybe we can get some new backgrounds up soon.

Free Christmas Blog Backgrounds

The Christmas background issue has been solved! They are now ready to use. I hope you enjoy them. Photobucket has changed things on their site and you now have to upload things according to your computer screen size. I have made backgrounds for 19 " screens and 17" screens, thus the two links you will see. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO WHICH SIZE OF LINK YOU ARE COPYING to save yourself any hassle. If you have a different size screen, please leave a comment with the size of your computer screen and the name of the background you would like. Scroll on down to choose your Christmas background. Happy Holidays!

I have had several people comment that the Christmas backgrounds are too wide. If you read the previous post I discussed the issues that are taking place. As I mentioned before, I will let you all know when the problem has been resolved...hopefully soon! Thank you for your patience and understanding!

I just tried to use one of the new backgrounds on my personal blog and found that it is way too wide. There is a problem with Photobucket that I need to get figured out. When I try to download pictures from Photobucket it does the same thing-makes them gigantic! I will let you all know when I figure out what is going on. For now at least you can look at the backgrounds and pick which one you want!

Christmas backgrounds are here!!!

Sharing the love...

I came across a couple of things the last couple of days that I thought I would share with all of you. For all you Twilight fans out there, check out http://www.hereascrapthereascrap.blogspot.com/ for some cute Twilight buttons you can add to your blog.

If you are looking for a totally affordable way to give your blog a fun look for the holidays check out http://www.onememoryatatime.com/ for blog packages you can purchase for $5.00! I believe the kits include a background, header and even labels/dividers. They are darling and you can't beat the price!

New backgrounds coming soon!

New Halloween and fall backgrounds are coming soon...I promise! I have been so busy lately with a million things, but I plan on getting to some this weekend. Thanks for being patient with me!

Some new insight

Okay. Here's the deal...lately I have had a few people say that they haven't been able to get my backgrounds to work. I had no idea what to tell them since I haven't changed anything and tons of other people get them to work just fine. Tonight as I was installing a blog for a customer I ran into an issue I have never had before. If you had one of The Cutest Blog on the Block's backgrounds on your blog just prior to trying to add one of mine, this is what you need to do.

FIRST you need to remove the gadget that has their background in your layout screen and then add one of my backgrounds following the directions listed on this site. Hope this helps some of you.

In a rut...

New backgrounds coming soon! Sorry there haven't been any lately. I have been trying to keep my focus on my kiddos and haven't spent as much time on the computer. I hope to have some new backgrounds posted soon.

Friday, July 18, 2008

So sorry!

I apologize for all of your backgrounds going missing for the day! I really am so sorry! Apparently I ran out of bandwidth with my photobucket account, but I took care of the problem and it shouldn't be happening again! Thanks for your understanding and please keep coming back for more!

Today I put the freedom-1 background on my personal blog and realized how hard it was to read my posts. It is one of my goals to have simple backgrounds that are easy to read, so I redid it with a new red paper. The link for the revised version is now posted. If you are currently using that background you might want to snag the new link so that others can read your posts a little easier! Thanks. If you encounter similar issues with any of the other backgrounds please let me know!
