Blog Background

I am having trouble getting a blogger background for my blog. None of the free ones would work,

so I just went to blogger and used one of their ugly ones. He He

Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

Also I am sorry I have been neglecting blogging, I am just too busy when I work both jobs.

Update on my MIL, she is slowly improving, she has been in the hospital a month now.

They are talking about sending her to rehab, it has been a slow process, but she is getting better,

thank you for your prayers. Lecia

  1. Hi...I get my background from www.thecutestblogontheblock.com
    Be sure to select the Column background that you have (looks like you have a center column).
    double Click on your choice.. highlight the html code that will come up on the next page.right click then click COPY ..Then go to your blog, log in and uncheck the stay signed block...go to design...click on "add a gadget" and scroll down to the html/java script and click this...then in the "Content" space right click and then click PASTE...then click SAVE
    Mine appears on the sidebar on the right as a black bar with the edit icon

    I have found that when the stay signed in box is checked it creates a lot of problems so I just make sure it stays unchecked

    Hope this helps
    Maxie

  3. I made my own by uploading a background photo. You can see it at my blog. Then I adjusted the colors to go with the plaid. I'll be happy to help, just let me know.

  8. Lecia, Blogger is such a pain... I went through that a while back then went to amybug, I think it is an purchased one. They are not that expense and she installs it. Good Luck! OLM

  10. Hi Lecia~
    I got fed up too and went to Amybug.com and purchased one. Kinda followed OLM's lead ;-) I like to change mine out but it got to be a pain. Like my simple new look now-boring to others most likely.
    Glad your MIL is improving too, a month already? Wow.
    Don't feel bad about not posting all the time. Other things come first. We'll be here waiting for you ;-)
    hugz to you my friend~
    Sheila

  11. That's why I don't change my background - too hard to find the right one - I've lost days of my life scrolling through backgrounds! I hope therapy speeds up your MIL's healing - that's too long to be in the darn old hospital. (I kind of like your bkground - reminds me of farmhouse wallpaper!)

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
