Boy o Boy

Sure do wish I knew what I was doing....but I don't. I have made a train wreck of this blog....trying to give it a new look...on my own. HA! In the process losing my whole list of fave blogs.... so that will start over rover. If you want to be on my blog roll..leave me a jingle here on this post. I am still getting over this whole head thing....I thought it ws allergy but now think it is a head cold.....that lingers. I have several posts to share....made a bulletin board today..I will show you the before tonight....the after will have to be tomorrow. The frame was was 10.00 at St. vincent BUT I had a full stamped card....for 10.00 free merchandisde. It is old, real wood, and beat up to just the perfect distressed chipiness. I sprayed it white guess what color my nose hairs are???? Well........remaining true to form....I will leave you with the frame....and what else??? A few things added to the store....come back tomorrow if you want to see the finished product. Heyyyy anyone want to trade Halloween goodies for help with this blog???? Give me a jingle... Heyyyyy Darlene email with your address on the banner.

Hi Cherry...
Hey, I just wanted you to know that a lady named Joanna is redoing my blog right now. She is super nice and her prices can't be beat. Maybe you could even wheel and deal with her???
To see her work or contact her go to this website:

P.S. I do like what you have done with your blog so far!!!!

Lorie said...

That frame is gorgeous! And the blog doesn't look like you have messed it up? What are you trying to do?

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Wish I could help with the 'design-stuff'. I'm sure you've noticed that the ONLY thing I do to mine is change the Header photo with the that's what I call high-tech! Hee-hee!
Your adorable plaque arrived safe and sound. Thanks so much. I showed off a pic of it in my last post. Hope mine found its way to your place safely, too. The whole shipping thing makes me a nervous wreck, worrying about damage and loss. Hope you're feeling a little better each day.

I could leave you a huge comment but this site
... has alot of great tips!!!My blog is always under!!!
Your blog looks great and I LOVE all of your projects for Halloween!!! You are a fabulous inspiration!!!

Claudia said...

It is always frightening trying to change the blog look isn't it? I've use a few sites - I agree with the earlier comment about The Cutest Blog on the Block - they do have some great tips. I got my background from if that is any help. I would love to remain on your blog roll -

Hang in there!


Lisa said...

For your header you need to take it to paint or another photo editing and put your text on it there and then set it to post instead of your typed text in your header box. I did that on my current Halloween header. As for loosing your blog list not sure. Did you change your template? Sorry you are having so much trouble. Hope I at least helped with your header!
Hugs, Lisa

Alison Gibbs said...

What gorgeous Halloween creations - I love the owl.
Oh dear I am glad I don't have to try and fix my blog. I wouldn't know where to start

The Style Sisters said...

I love all your Halloween decor! You always give such great attention to detail! I love it all. I wish I could help you with your desgin issues but I don't know how to desgin blogs. I have designed a website and that took eons to figure out!

Laurie said...

Oh, you poor thing; well, at least you know when to stop and ask for help! That's a great skill in and of itself! I wanna be on your list of reads, if you'll have me:
LOVE your Halloween stuff!

TidyMom said...

Hi Cherry, I can help you some if you want - I did my blog all by myself - I'm just good at following tutorials! LOL

My only problem might be time - my daughter's basketball games are about to start, so I'm going to be a little more busy for a while, but I will have some time to help!!

Just holler if you want me to help, so far I've been able to do everything I wanted to my blog - and I've helped a few others with theirs.


PS- if you have time, can you swing by my blog and leave a comment to help me win a new Samsung Washer & Dryer? LOL

★Carol★ said...

All of your Halloween decorations are wonderful, and you've inspired me to go all out with my decorations this year! I love Halloween so much!
I'm contemplating remodeling my blog too, but I'm too scared! It will have to wait until my daughter comes home from college for Christmas, before I will attempt it! Good luck with yours!
P.S. I would LOVE to be on your blog roll!

Kim said...

I love where you are going with the new look. I wish that I could help, but it took me HOURS just to do the most ridiculously simple changes to mine.

I love your new creations (as always) & the frame. Can't wait to see it in one of your vignettes.

Wendy @ Ramblings from the Sunshine State said...

Love the Halloween goodies!!

That frame is great, too.

I am trying to do some changes to mine as well, havent tried a different background yet though.

Darlene said...

Cute, CUTE Halloween goodies!!! You always make cute things!! I have no clue how to do custom blog backgrounds so no help here.

Hope you are having a great weekend.♥

Christina said...

Can't wait to see what you do with the frame. Free is fabulous. I really love your Halloween creations.

Congrats to the giveaway winner-some very lucky ladies.

roseylittlethings said...

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I am not much help with blog problems-
Love the frame-I have also spray-painted my nose hair before!!!

Karen said...

Hope you do get the blog thing all worked out. I've done a good job of messing mine up a couple times, but I can never remember how I get things fixed! I love to check in to see what you're doing! Karen

Just a little something from Judy said...

I would be the last person to help you, although to me it does not look like you need help. Can't wait to see what you do with the frame...and with everything else you attempt to do. Love my visits here!

Rachel Berry said...

I'm always in love with your Halloween Banners! I'm a sucker for all things Halloween.

Good luck with your blog redo!


Pamela said...

Just found your blog and I love it. I am so jealous of your paper craftiness! So great, and inspiring with Halloween right around the corner! Can't wait.

Ribbonwood Cottage said...

Oh Cherry Girl....wish I could come over and help. The truth is we all are learning as we go. I've learned so much by asking questions too. I know many gals will help you get where you need to get....Be patient with your we all understand and wonder where certain things go when they leave our blog suddenly. I too get my backgrounds from Background Fairy....but that is it.

Vintagesquirrel said...

You are a girl after my own heart -- my favorite holiday is Halloween. I, too, go the easy route for blog design - choosing a ready-made template from Cutest Blog on the Block. They are fantastic. I have been on a blog hiatus this summer due to some health issues. I'd love to be added to your blogroll (You're on mine.), as I attempt to revive my blog.

Cathy Cobblestone said...

Oh Cherry - I think it looks good - you didn't mess up anything. Besides, you are so gifted- you'll figure it all out. I love all your Halloween "stuff". I know I've told you a bunch of times - but - you are the most creative person with paper I've ever met(via the web that is). You amaze me! Good luck with everything and I hope you feel better. And yes, please put me back on the "roll". Cathy

Mammatalk said...

I love your Halloween posts. You always get me in the spooky mood.

And, yes, I would love to be on your blog roll

Carol Anne's Boutique said...

Hi Cherry,
I am always so inspired when I visit your blog! Your creations are just your bingo card banner! Can't wait to see your transformation of the frame...that was a wonderful find! Hope you will be feeling much better very soon.
Carol Anne

Melissa said...

It's looking good, Cherry! I can't wait to see what you do with the frame!

tincanlily said...

Your Halloween creations are spectacular. Love your style. I have not been doing much crafting, but you have inspired me to get going on a few fall creations.

The Library Lady said...

Talent. Pure talent. Your stuff is so gorgeous.

queen bee tracy said...

Okay, I just got my Halloween pendant and can I just say I LERB it! And then I log on this morning and see the Owl one and oh lawd I am getting ready to click over to your shop hoping to get my mitts on that one too. You rock Cherry!
