I've been painting a lot of birds lately for a project that I'm working on and "Awaiting Spring" is the newest chickadee to be added to the collection. www.artfulcreations.etsy.com
I had one of those mornings where I thoroughly amazed myself today. You see, my blog has been looking shabby and neglected for quite a long time now, it was in a real state of sad disarray. There were widgets I wanted taken off, things to be moved around, added, it basically just needed a lot of help. My husband being the techie in the family, always does all these tasks for me after I make him a detailed list of what needs to be done. Lately he has been very busy and I have totally forgotten to write a list so these things that needed to be changed, just stretched on, undone, for weeks and months.
This morning though I sat down and went into the design area of the blog and to my great amazement, I saw all the things I needed to take out and was easily able to delete them. I also added pictures of Chris and me and our doggies and was able to successfully upload those in the blog sidebar as well. What I'm probably most proud of though is that I figured out how to add painting photos, make them clickable so they take you to my ETSY site and also add links to my website and ETSY site that actually work. I was also able to add a photo link at the top of the blog in the left hand column that can take people to Creative Connection licensing agency. I then realized all the photos and links I had made were right in a row, not where I would want them so I was able to click and drag them to where I wanted them. I then realized by hitting that magic little "save" button, all my changes would be happily displayed just the way I want them on my blog. Amazing!!!
I hope you have been able to amaze yourself today as well!!!!
