Last Chance to Comment! #149

This is the last blog before my giveaway! Comment before Monday evening and you will have a chance to win something I am creating. I have been playing today. On my computer that is. I learned how to change the backgrounds on my blog and add different things. It only took me about 4 hours! I have the hang of it now! I should have been creating art but I saw someone Else's blog recently that had different backgrounds and I just had to figure out how to do it! So what do you think? I am loving it.

Ok...I had to edit this post because I am finished with my latest creation for the give away! Here it is:
"Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Men"
Here is a close up:
It is made with Aqua Marine Faceted gems, quartz, steel, and a cute miniature perfume bottle I found at the antique store last week. I made the chain in back long, but you can shorten to your liking. I will be making my daughter pick up the name out of a jar tomorrow night after I get home from work. Good luck everyone!

Hi Cindy,
I love your new blog background. Now I'm going to have to find 4 hours to play with blogger... I love changing the look of my blog.

Shel said...

I love the new backgrounds-so chic! LOL. The necklace is absolutely gorgeous. You are very talented, my dear. I don't have that kind of patience.

Phyl said...

Please add my name to the pot for the drawing for your simply gorgeous little necklace with the tiny perfume bottle! I just found your blog; love it! And wish when you have time, email me and tell me HOW to do the wonderful backgrounds on my blog?!
Thanks so much!

Hey Cindy- Loving the blog background. I think you should post a tutorial about that! LOL. And the necklace- fantastic piece, I love the way you attached the pendant & the twisted rings. Nice ;-) Off to the group to yak more about it!

Okay seriously....I have been locked out of my google blogger password for so long, and I have tried so many times to respond to your posts...only to give up in frustration. Tonight I kept trying and here I am! Jen's post from Bono just had me going!
So especially because of my inept-ness (is that even a word?)at this whole blog thing, I have always been impressed that you even have one, and now you are doing backgrounds??? Seriously. Show off.
Miss you roomie!
