Fluffin' my nest...


***** UPDATE**** After a long night of pulling hair,naming my computer, and almost watching the sun come up ...Here she is. I like it because I did it myself. I'm not sure if the bird will stay but she was easy and it was getting late. I even added a third side. I know you probably know the fancy name for it but roll with me cause Im a bit sleep deprived. 3:30 Am ,I was done....down for the count. Oh the pride in learning something new. Oh the stupidity in being a tightwad~
Your at the right place...Im just fluffin' my nest a bit..in better terms...messing things up. I thought I would go for a new fresh look. Right... As you can see I have no idea what Im doing. Maybe cause it's 1:10am and I have Zero computer skills. So if you need a few good laughs during your day. Just keep checking back to see what deep mess Im getting myself into. Oh for love of mankind..why dont I just pay a few bucks and get some help, ugh!

  1. LOL I totally understand!! I did the same exact thing a few times until I finally got it right!!

    If you get a chance, stop by my blog. I need some recipes for my digital scrapbook if you'd like to participate.

    Have A Great Weekend! Kathy :)

  2. I hear ya! Have you noticed mine's been kinda basic for the past couple weeks? I changed my blog to a three column. No prob. Now I can't find a premade template to fit it {that I like}. And I came *thisclose* to messing the entire thing up in the process. And I don't WANT to re-do every single widget in order to add certain templates. So here I sit with a pink background, and nothing fancy. *Pout*

  3. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    You know atleast you've been able to change the background and stuff all along whereas I can't get mine to change no matter what I do! It's so frustrating! I have the ugliest blog on bloggyland *sigh* Good thing I have friends with pretty blogs so I can envy them! *smiles* When you get yours done maybe you can do mine??? *smiles*

  5. Sounds just like me! My site is total home cookin'! It took me a few days of living in blog word, way more than I should have been, to get it figured out... but hey, it was free! :)

    Looks like yours is off to a good start...bumps and all!

  6. Hysterical! (I had to google that to see if I spelled it right...I didn't at first!) You and I must share some simiar DNA! I have no idea how to update my page...so your effort is well appreciated. AND it looks good!

  13. I need to do this over on my blog too, but I just can't find the time! I barely get to read all of your fabulous blogs!!

  14. Susie,
    I recently discovered the joys of the blog world and have been following your blog for a couple of months. My daughter peeped over my shoulder the other day and saw your family picture and said, "I know that boy, he went to middle school with me!" Then, when I looked at the signs you'd made for your daughter's school, I recognized some names from GPS. Wow, it's a small world cause we're neighbors!

  15. I just downloaded my template so I can start edititng.

    Nevermind the fact that the only class I have ever failed was COMPUTER PROGRAMMING.

    Everything looks good so far!

  19. Looks great...I have not clue even where to begin so I am impressed. I would have to hire someone.

  20. Morning Susie,

    It is looking great.....I'll be watching to see how it ends up. Now get some sleep okay???♥

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your braver than I am...I'm afraid to mess it up! What's that saying? If it ain't broken...don't fix it. That's my motto!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Too funny...I kept reading thinking...what update..what other post did I miss. Did she help a wounded bird? Yep, I didn't get much sleep either. Good for you. I want to do something to mine, but when I tried and it said "save" it to hard drive so I don't delete everything...I ran quickly into hiding. I don't want to take a change deleting my whole blog.

    As frugal as I am, I may hire someone...sigh.

  23. very cute...i can't see the bird...but i see the chandelier type thing.

    if you want help...just email me (on my blog profile page)...i'm starting up a design business and I would love to help you (for free!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're doing great. Blog design is a tough one to figure out. If you get too frustrated, you can give my site a look and I'll help you out. I'd love to trade a design for one of your fun creations!

  25. I really like the header! Hey, Ms. Susie in 2 weeks we'll be in Nashville! Can't wait...

  26. I think it looks great but you can also get free templates from Lena at Simply Fabulous or the Cutest Blog on the Block. That's what I do considering I am also computer inept.

  27. Same here I am lucky to have what I do on my blog....Barb

  28. Susie you are so honest! I have limited computer skills myself. I want a blog, scared to admit though I may not be able to get it together, ha ha
    Good For you! You've done a great job! I love it.

  33. I think it looks great! I just started blogging last week and like you...I change my living room around so naturally I'm going to change my blog. I have already changed it three times. I'm just happy to have found your blog and your Etsy store. I'm a Louisiana girl...born and raised living in Georgia. So, I love getting to see a little piece of home. I pray that we both have the mind of Christ so that we will be able to discern when it looks good. So go forth and Fluff!

  34. I need to spiff mine up too!! Yours is lookin' good!!

    J picked up the 2 weeks worth of mail this morning. I'll be over to leave some feedback, at the shop, in a bit! We absolutely love the sign, oh yes we do!! I have a post, featuring the sign with a link to you, scheduled for noon (central) tomorrow.

    Thanks so much!!!

  35. you changed it! looks cute. I know mine is sort of bold and graphic...but I think you would like something a little bit more subdued and "nesty" LOL. I would love to do it...and help you out with your formatting (so we can see the whole header). Just let me know....txtricia97@gmail.com. Oh...and I'm super jealous of you going to blissdom!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. It still looks good. If you are unhappy, you could always take Jennifer T. up on her offer and trade your creations for hers!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love it!!!
    I haven't a CLUE how to do all that so I admire you. HA!
    I am a chicken.....and won't change mine. Besides I like it well enough. But I like new things too. Just not computer things that I have to figure out.HA!

  42. Looks good to me! I don't know how to do any of that stuff either! I have to get my husband to do it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Good luck! I would love to change mine up, but I am afraid I would never be able to get it back to normal. I'm gonna have to eventually pay someone.

    Just wanted to let you know I gave you an award on my blog. I just love your blog so much and really enjoy your posts.

  44. I like it and wish I was up to changing my nest..my blog..my house..everything...LOL

  45. Oh my, I know how you feel! I got into the edit html one day and started messing around. I wanted 3 columns too . . . made the biggest mess you've ever seen! I gave up and put everything back the way it was. I am determined to figure it out one day!

    I have faith in you, you're doing a great job!
