I Am Just All Kinds of Festive!






Changing my blog design was the most scariest thing I have ever attempted tech-wise.  I hope I have done everything right so when the holidays are over, I can put things back the way they were.  If not, make friends with the peek-a-boo Santa above now.


It was actually pretty easy to do.  So easy that it makes me think I might have screwed something up. Ha Ha


Anywho, you can decorate your blog too!  If you are using the Blogger platform then I STRONGLY suggest you watch a couple of 3 minute videos by Thomas MacEntee.  Unless of course you are a tech geek, in which case never mind what I just said and get your blog all kinds of Festive!


If you are tech-challenged like me then head on over to Geneabloggers and read the post "Have You Decorated Your Blog For The Holidays?" and watch the 2 very short instructional videos.  Then take your new-found knowledge and head over to "Resources For Holiday Blog Decorating".  Plan on spending some time ogling the delicious holiday blog eye candy.  I changed my mind a hundred different times trying to decide on the decorations.


Once you have your blog decorated, shout it out loud so we can all come visit your place and be awed by your creative genius!

You did it! Awesome Sheri! I have been so slammed I honestly thought about not changing mine this year, but we shall see. Nice job!

Sheri, I was pouring over the different decorating options last night in preparation to decorate my blog too. I'm also a little nervous! Nothing like taking a deep breath an plunging into the deep end!! Your blog looks great!

Looks great. I should do mine. Although the way I procrastinate Santa might still be up in February.

Love it! Thanks for the idea. If it's like my other decorations, I may get around to decorating the blog around Dec. 27!!

This is wonderful, Sheri! I'll have to think about doing something to mine now!

I love your Santa, Sherri and you've given me a weekend project! After abandoning my PTA tomorrow afternoon I'm going to watch those videos and get festive! :)
