only 1 bad thing

What a wonderful day it was yesterday. It was warm, sunny and perfect. A few blocks over they were having a neighborhood yard sale so I grabbed a bottle of water and went for a walk to see what I could find. I did make one $2.00 purchase that I'll show you later in the week.

Other than that, I spent a little bit of time crafting, I did a little cleaning and even though I did say I was going to stay away from the computer, I did spend a little time in front of it.

I've been wanting a more summery look for the blog so I worked on that and thought I had what I wanted. I did a new header and was totally annoyed that it's cutting it off even though it's the same size as my previous ones. Since I have no idea how to fix that I put in an old one and now I see that it's cut off on the right side too.

Well this is what the new header was supposed to be


Today will be some early morning shopping and I think I'll work on some more projects.

Have a great day

UPDATE: I finally got the new header to fit. I can't believe it was as simple as remembering to click shrink to fit

I love this new header! It's nice to be carried away on the computer sometimes.

Love the summery header! Try changing it to 1050 pixels. That's what I have to make mine in order for it to fit perfectly and since you use the same format, it might work that size for you.

I tried out a new summery layout yesterday but decided I didn't like it so, whoosh, it's gone.

I like yours Ann - especially with Duke in the header. :)

Hi Ann, I have so much trouble when I try to create a new header, too. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. For the life of me, I don't know what I do different.

I do like your summer header and the warm and delightful yellow checks.
It's very pretty and oh, so, summery.
Have a lovely day.

Loving the new summery look of the blog Ann, and it was definitely worth spending the time on that header!!

Hey...Anni, the new header works from my point of view! And I love the summery feel to your blog!! You're always so talented.

And the $2 purchase at the yard sale, is it gonna be something crafty? You tease.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

LOL...okay, 'shrink to fit'...that's why it's now working. LOL [read, Anni!! Read!!!]
