Finally, I Have A New Header!

I don't know how many times I have tried to make a new header for my blog, to no avail. I have SO much time you see, to play around with stuff I am so unfamiliar with. It really is unbelievable how much time I can waste trying to do things I have no idea how to do. Finding help aids online didn't seem to help me, nor did any of the sites that share ideas.

Last night I was catching up on reading blogs when I ran across "Flipside's" blog and her new header. Have you seen it? It is MARVELOUS! Upon reading the comments, I found myself jumping into this conversation, as the person who designed her header had offered to help others make a header if anyone needed it. Of course, that would be ME! Now, how fortunate am I to have a marvelous new header??

I met this person, Deez, who made my header, via online connections, as I stated earlier, through Flipside's blog. However, I feel I have known this friend for quite a long time. As a matter of fact, Deez lives in my general area to boot!

Deez has offered to do a header for anyone who may need or want one. If you are interested, please leave a comment and I can hook you up! Or, you can read "Cemetery Explorers" and leave a comment!

If you decide you would like a header made, just keep in mind that it may take some time to be done, so please be patient. I was fortunate, in that I believe I caught Deez on the last day of vacation? Back to work now, so time may be a little limited.

How nice is it that someone offers to do this? And, for free! I had thought about asking someone to do it for me, but I really hated to bother anyone when they have so much to do themselves. I am definetely NOT a computer geek, so I need more help than others!

If you don't need a new header, and/or are smart enough to do it yourself (I am sooooo jealous!), I still suggest you check out Cemetery Explorers, it is a great site, and yes it is a Graveyard Rabbit Site!

I thank you so very much Deez for your help in revamping my header, can I do the genealogy dance for a new header? If it is legal to do for a new header, you can just see me dancing away, right?

Oh, and did I say this is my 200th post? What a way to start towards the 300 mark! Thanks again Deez, you made my day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

But Let me know and I'll see what I can do...and thanks for the plug Cheryl...happy to be your 200th post...

  6. Cheryl,

    Your banner is great! If Deez sees this I'd like to 'talk' to him about getting one for my Kinexxions blog.

    By the way, your link to the Cemetery Explorers blog doesn't work. It should be:
    http://cemeteryexplorers.blogspot.com/

  10. Thank you geneabloggers, I appreciate the look and the compliment!

    Hi Maybelline! Thank you also for the compliment! I will give Deez a heads up that you may be interested in a header also! I love the name!

    And Deez, I just realized this post was actually 199, not 200. :(
