What a challenge :-)

Well, I knew this blog update was going to be a challenge, but I am proud of what I have learned so far. Chris helped me get my background uploaded. I created one with an owl on it, however, I decided not to use it. I found a picture I had uploaded to photobucket a while back and I decided to use it instead. I have been looking at vector images and feeling a little overwhelmed.

It still needs a little tweaking. I am not sure how to get rid of the pink border on the top. I want to decrease the transparency of the background.

I found a cool site that gives the html color codes. If you need it, click here to see the codes. I was thrilled that I was able to figure this part out in about 5 minutes, since everything else has taken a little longer to figure out.

I will probably be playing with this for a while and I might even pay someone to design a template for me, but for now, I am having fun with this project.

Tomorrow I am going to craft with 10 kindergarteners. I made little bags and the kids are going to decorate them as turkeys. They are going to trace their hand, cut it out and then color it for the feathers, I think it will be so cute!

Wish me luck, I have never done anything like this before.

Your blog is really taking shape! I really like the backgroud , but agree it might look better if it were a bit more vivid. I'm super impressed that you are able to understand all this html codes and vector images...over my head! Have fun with the little ones tomorrow!
