I have watched tutorials, read blog design tips, looked at DIY blog articles and messed with HTML codes until I couldn't see straight.  I finally got rid of the pastel blue background, birds and butterflies, found a background to match my header, and installed it.  I think I lost a few strands of hair in the process...

And I have decided that HTML stands for this:

How in the HELL-O do
Make it
Look so easy?


How many
Thousands of
Monkeys did it take to make up this

I am not in love with what I ended up with, so I might play with it a little more later.  : )

I'm making my parent gifts this weekend and will post directions and pictures, soon!

I totally understand what you mean. I have tried numerous times to change mine...but it's too far above my head. Good luck in getting yours the way you want it!

I tried to change mine by myself, too, and finally gave in and paid to have my blog done. I understand your frustration! I like your new background!

Lol I totally understand. That's why my blog design hasn't changed!

Eventually I may brave it and try again :)

I am totally with you! I've found two places with good tutorials. Ladybug Teacher Files and Blog Designs by Dani. But the new background looks great and your hair will eventually too! ;)

Hey Jaime,

I really LIKE your new design. I like the elegance of it and the ease of reading the text. It also loads in quickly. Yeah, html coding is crazy, but it's like a giant puzzle for me and I can't resist a puzzle and a challenge.
