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!

What a "Lovely" Surprise!

I had a great day today with my daughter and grandchildren. I often wonder, what could be finer? Maybe a day in Carolina? OK maybe not, but I think this was just as wonderful and such a surprise! Kay at Kay B's Place sent me a message today saying that she chose me to receive an award for having “One Lovely Blog”. Thank you, Kay! This just added to my already wonderful day! I am pleased you think enough of my blog to choose me! Now, I am asked to to pass this “One Lovely Blog Award” on to seven blogs and their authors. When you receive yours we hope you will take the time to read some new blogs or revisit some of your favorites. Then the instructions are simple - just nominate 7 other blogs. Oh, it so tough, it is always difficult to name just a few...
These are the seven I choose ~
Drusilla Pair ~ Find Your Folks
Gini Webb ~ Ginisology
Apple ~ Apple's Tree
Lindalee ~ Flipside
Thank you all for such "Lovely" Blogs! And a special thank you again to Kay for nominating me!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogy treasure hunts!
