Back from Vacation

We had a great time at Cape Cod last week and we got back yesterday evening. It's sad that summer is almost over, but I'm glad to be back home again, relaxed and rested and ready to live real life again.

I'll write about the Cape later this week. I wanted to write my July Month-in-Review before leaving but things got too busy, so I'm going to try and finish that up soon. I like having those month-by-month happenings of my little life to look back on and read. There are actually a lot of things I want to write about right now, and I hope I can find the time to do it all this month!

I was bummed to see that my blog background had turned to mush while I was away. I loved that background! Stupid Photobucket! (since it looks like it's their fault.) Can anyone give me some good websites or resources that have cute, simple backgrounds to download that won't lose everything on your blog? I don't like this plain white background and I don't have the savvy or the time to figure out how to make it nice again without some help. Somebody, anybody? Please help me!

Go on my niece, Shandi's, blog. Under her "favorite websites", she lists a couple blogging template sites. That's all I know of at this point.

My blog did the same thing yours did. I think the person who put those templates together took down the images from photobucket, since it seems she no longer has a website. I tried a few different templates from those sites I told you about, but none of them looked good with a photo at the top, and I really wanted to use a photo at top. So, I just photoshopped one of my pictures into a header, changing it into a painting and adding text.

i'm using backgrounds from
They have sooooo many to choose from but the only downside (or at least it has been a downside for me because I am not too savvy with widgets)is that when you change your background you lose the page elements on the side column like your list of blogs or music, etc. I just made sure I found one that I liked and then set everything up afterward. They are free and they don't go away.

Thanks guys. I knew you'd come through for me. :) Both of your blogs look really nice. I'm going to go check those links out now and hopefully I'll find something good!

I think the templates I told you about won't delete your widgets. At least they didn't when I messed around with them.
