Free Primitive Americana Wallpaper For Your Desktop...

Hello... Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Holiday Weekend. Here is a Primitive Americana Wallpaper I made for your desktop. Click on the wallpaper pic to get to the actual size of it. Then just right click and 'Save'.
Once it is saved to your computer, right click the image and choose 'Set As Desktop Background'. This wallpaper is the standard 800 X 600 size. I am trying to figure out the size for a widescreen... as soon as I do... I will put that one up too!

Also, I am working on some more primitive wallpapers for computer desktops. Hope you will check back again!

Please Note: This wallpaper is my own work.
Be sure to save first and then apply... if you try to apply the background directly from the picture...the size will not be correct.

First Template Using Cheryl Seslar Graphics...

Here is the first template I made using
Cheryl Seslar Graphics!

You are welcome to use this on your blog if you like, but I have to ask that you (please) do not remove my logo showing where you got the template. It is linked back to my blog where it is stated that the template was made with
Cheryl Seslar Graphics.

That is part of her terms for using her graphics and I want to be sure that I comply.

Thank you.

This template was designed to work with a 'Minima' template.

Simply 'Copy' & 'Paste' the code under the 'HTML' section of 'Add A Gadget'

Raggedies & Gingers

Have a great night, everyone!

New Fabric.... YIPEEEE!

I got some new fabric yesterday... I have been having so much fun making blog graphics and templates that I haven't crafted much lately at all. Between work and family and just life in general... there never seems to be enough time to actually complete something! (Although I do stitch a little everyday... no matter what!) I think I would actually have WITHDRAWALS if I didn't! LOL

Well, here is a pic of my fabric. It is Americana themed. I love the navy one with the stars.... it is perfect for a project I have in mind.

I am off to the flea market now... hopefully I'll find something good and can share a 'BEFORE & AFTER' pic. Here is a pic of an embossed star tin planter that I found last year for 50 cents! I stuffed it with some gingers and hearts that I bought off Ebay awhile back.

Hope everyone is having a wonderul weekend!

It was great!


Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend!

Finally! Some 3 Column Templates!

Hi Guys! I finally made some 3 column templates!

These templates are also designed to be used with a 'MINIMA' template.

If you are using a 3 column, I assume you know how to change your margins. So, after you choose a 'Minima' template, simply change your margins and these templates will look great!

'Copy' the code beneath your chosen template and 'Paste' in the 'HTML' section under 'Add A Gadget'.

If you need further help, you can refer to an earlier post called 'DIRECTIONS FOR TEMPLATES' or you can email me at

Also, I will have my selling blog up and running soon. I will be offering my handmade goodies and also web designs, such as banners and customized blog headers, maybe even complete websets. I hope you will all check it out!
Have a great evening everyone!

Good News & Bad News...

Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is, I purchased a Web Designer's License from Cheryl Seslar which will allow me to use her AWESOME graphics to make blog templates, banners, etc. (I am SO excited and can't wait to start!)

The bad news is, I have the CHICKEN POX and have been sick as a dog for 5 days. (Can you believe it?!)

I am finally starting to feel better and am headed back to work tomorrow but my Doctor said it's going to take about 2 weeks for them to go away! UGH!

Well, hope you check back, I should have some new blog templates up soon..... Hope everyone is having a good week so far...
