Playing Blog-house

I've spent the better part of Saturday sitting in front of my pc...and dinkin' around (that's Coleen's word for it) with  my blog; last week you may have noticed I changed up some of my 'PAGE BUTTONS' ACROSS THE TOP.
Back to Saturday: 
I've been playing- house, only with my blog not a real house. I changed my header picture you might have noticed. 
I like it-- The other was borrowed from 'Cutest Blog on the Block' people. It was cute, but I really like this for now! I't me! 

I also found this really great tutorial at Sweet Little Smoothie "Resizing you Blog-Love Buttons"
She did a fantastic job of  TUTORING!  She explained it so well in words and pictures...even I could do it. 

You can see my little buttons over there on the left. Aren't they cute? 

I made an "Old Friends" button-- these ladies that I've been bloggy friends with pretty much since I started my blogging. They've been with me through THICK AND THIN, name changes, and encouraging me to step-out of my comfort zone.  I noticed this morning, I missed a couple. 
I also made a "Some Blogs I Like Button". There are some blogs I follow and some blogs I don't.  Do you do that? Some bloggers don't have a "Follow Me" feature so they go on the list of blogs and that is running kind of long nowadays! SO, I'm trying a smaller button for a while. Like I said, just dinkin' around.   I 'm trying to come up with a better organised system here;and better names/sub-titles for my Little buttons... they're cute!  The sub-titles I have are for lack of a better name... cause these ladies aren't really 'OLD' we've just been bloggy friends a long time and there are lots of Blogs I like... and just cause someones button isn't in there doesn't mean I don't like 'em-- see? 

Any suggestions on Labeling sub-titles?  Better names to file my buttons under? 

You can leave me a comment-- I'll consider all suggestions.  

Now if I can figure out how to make my own signature to go at the bottom, any good tutorials out there? I'm off to look!  I want it to say

God Bless you 
Thanks for Reading!

Hi Pat!

Thanks for putting me on the 'old friends'! I'm so happy to be there!!

I LOVE the header photos. They are you and your home! Someday when I'm not so busy....I'll sit and play with my blog and make it all fancy!

Here's the signature thingy that I used! Hope it helps. It was pretty straight forward in the tute!
