I Did It! ~ A technology Breakthrough

Ever since starting my blog I have wanted to be able to make a header in a collage format, and this month for my Christmas postings I was finally able to accomplish making one that I was satisfied with, up to now they have only been what I would call messy disasters. My Daughter at, http://loveandlifeatleadora.blogspot.com/ made an absolutely beautiful new header using Picnik and in the future, depending on what I want to do, I will definitely be using their program, but I made the header you see here with Picasa; their program allowed me to have a larger center picture and two smaller side pictures. These are both easy to use...especially Picnik...Picasa takes a little more work. You can find the tutorial I used for Picasa at: http://memoriesoncloverlane.blogspot.com/2009/08/tutorial-on-how-to-make-blog-banner.html and the Picnik tutorial at: http://blogguidebook.com./2010/10/how-to-make-header-using-picnik.html. Now watch out because I just might become a little header obsessed!

A side note - I wanted a wider header and my new width is 1000, but by doing this I messed up some of my older postings and and blogger won't let me edit out of it, I somehow also lost a post, Folded Elegance  I know that for the future I want the wider header so I guess it is the price to pay. C'est la Vie

  3. That looks gorgeous, Adrienne. I love it.

    I have tried unsuccessfully to change my header many times and even thought about paying someone to help me do it. But now, I'm going to take tips from you and try it myself again.

    Thank you for sharing this with us. I thought I was the only one who had problems trying to do nifty stuff to my blog.

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

  4. Looks fabulous. I'm totally in love with Picnik. I'm constantly changing my blog header. It's addictive. In fact, I stayed up late last night giving my blog a Christmas makeover. Can't wait to see your Christmas decorations.

  7. Oh the joy of technology! I have tried to revise mine so many times and have come up short. So frustrating! I hate admitting there are things I can't do, but computers, well, they just arent my thing. Working on it though. Your header is so pretty, but I liked the original, too. Good luck as you go forward!
