I have teamed up with @trice.up.studio on instagram to give you all a code to her etsy shop! She has some wonderful products for your planners.

Please be following both of us on instagram if you are using the code. It is only fair as it is for my followers and is for her shop.

Want to cross stitch, but are unsure where to start?

When I first started doing cross stitch a couple of years ago, I didn't have anyone to teach me or tell me how to choose a project. One of the first projects I got (after a DMC ladybut kit I got for free from DMC) was a Paula Vaughan kit. It was a large kit with many colors on high count linen. I did not know what I was getting myself into. I will tell you this, it is still sitting on my shelf with not even a 30th of it completed!

Who made a button? I made a button!

A couple of weeks ago, I could not even manage to edit my HTML to make my comments work correctly. I had to get rid of my custom theme and go with a regular blogger theme. I was kind of sad about that, but hey, it's all okay.

Then, over the last few days especially, I started signing up for a lot of blogger opps. The problem was that half the time the HTML they used for their announcement posts didn't go with my color scheme. The links would be invisible or the words would be unreadable. So I started changing my color schemes repeatedly, trying to find a good compromise. My husband looks at me one night and says, why don't you just edit the HTML code and make the colors different on the posts, not on your theme. Hmmm said I. Actually it was more of a whine about how I didn't know how to do that, and that it was too hard. Then I started really reading the codes. Line by line. Figuring out what color hex code thingamajig went with what words and what backgrounds.

I am slowly starting to understand the HTML code stuff. I don't know it well enough to write anything myself, but I am starting to be able to edit for background colors and word colors and font pretty easily. Now if only I could figure out where to put that darn Alexa code! It is still in the wrong spot and my specs aren't showing on my dashboard.

So, here I am rambling on and on, and you are probably wondering what any of this has to do with buttons. Well. you know those grab my button things on the sides of people's blogs? I have one now! I made it! I used a tutorial on another blogger's site. You can find it HERE if you want to learn how to make one yourself. It is actually pretty easy. I had problems at first. I was doing something wrong but couldn't figure out what. Then I figured out that I was forgetting to change the " in the code. After I changed those it was fine. That is explained in the tutorial as well. I just didn't read all of it at first.
(They teach you in school to read all instructions before you start something. I guess I just forgot that lesson!)

I know it is silly to be this excited over something like a button, but I can't help myself. I love to learn new things. I feel that I am learning this HTML stuff slowly. Who knows, one day maybe I'll be designing my own themes or websites or who knows what!

You can find my button on the right side of this post if you want it. It says Grab My Button and then there is the picture followed by the code. I didn't know what picture to use on my button, so I used a picture of some of my yarn. I love the picture and miss the yarn that I used to have. I have either used, or lost in the move to Texas, most of the yarn in the picture.

OK so I am done rambling on about all of this. I hope you all have been enjoying my recipes, sweepstakes, and giveaways that I have been posting about. I haven't been doing much knitting and no gardening (it all died except for two plants that aren't producing anything), and very little of anything other than finding awesome giveaways to post about.

Until next time my ever faithful tanglers.... Happy Crafting!

Look! Here's my button and it's code! :)

So excited over my affiliate link for Craftsy!

I just joined up with ShareASale to be a Craftsy affiliate. I absolutely love Craftsy and have enrolled in several of their classes. So it is an honor for me to have affiliate links on my site for them. There are three on my blog page right now. One to the right, one to the left, and one above my posts. Click any of them to take you to the Craftsy site and you can browse their classes and patterns.

I'm trying to learn how to have different pages and tabs!

I want to separate my sweepstakes and giveaways on here from my crafting and other things I am into. That way people can read about what they come here for and not have to search through all of it to find it. That said, here is my first knitting update after about ten days of knitting solely on my husband's blanket.
