Made it Monday (on Tuesday)

Is it too late for Made it Monday? Yesterday I spent most of the day re-doing our blog. I haven't done much with it since a year ago when we first started. I'm (we're) going to do better this year. This is our very first linky (and I did something wrong because my name showed up on 4th Grade Frolics blog, instead of our blog name. I'll figure that one out soon.).
So yesterday I made our new background, header, button, links to email, TPT, and Pinterest. I also made a new signature. What do you think?

We had a free blog template from The Cutest Blog on the Block that was so adorable! But since I've been reading more about blog design (check out all of Megan's tips), I wanted to fancy ours up a bit and couldn't do that with a free template.

All that using just PowerPoint and Paint. I'm feeling accomplished. :) It's nothing too fancy, but I love that I created it all. Seriously read Megan's blog for help. She's so helpful! Now all I need to know is how to get the Pinterest "P" text for that button.

  1. I LOVE your blog stuff that you made! The design is SO cute. I really want to do that stuff for mine, but I'm nervous! I'm not very good at all this creative stuff! Maybe I'll check out the posts you mentioned to see if that will give me more confidence! Oh boy...

    Anyways--I stopped by to tell you I nominated you for an award! Check out my blog for the details: http://second-is-the-best.blogspot.com/2013/07/nominated-for-liebster-who-me.html

    Good Luck getting back into blogging and starting the new school year!
