I've Been Busy!

I haven’t written a new post in awhile, but that doesn’t mean I’ve ignored my blog! On Friday, instead of doing Seven Quick Takes, I made myself a gorgeous new blog banner. If you’re reading this in a feeder, click over and check it out. I love it and am so excited I made it myself! For free! Because reading archives really DOES pay off. A month or two ago while reading blathering-goer Sara’s archives, I came across this post where she wrote how she made herself a new banner using the tutorial here (on Clover Lane). I bookmarked the tutorial and hoped it wouldn’t be too hard. It wasn’t! If you want a new banner you should really check it out, because it was super easy. It took a couple hours, but only because it was the first time I’d ever used Picasa. I could probably make another one in MUCH less time than it took me to make the first one.

I also got a twitter account for my blog. If you’d like to follow me, search for @JesabesBlog I have a personal twitter account I use to follow people (and tweet rarely), but I didn’t feel comfortable using it for blog stuff. I decided to get a new one since I finally came up with a permanent (or at least long-term) name for the blog. Now I'm trying to figure out if there is any way I can set up two twitter accounts on my phone.

My office upgraded to Office 2010 this week, so now I'm figuring THAT out.  I think it will take me awhile to get all of the toolbars set up like I want them in word and excel.  But I'm doing it during naptime while watching Law & Order, so its not all bad!

I’m excited I finally got some things done I’ve been meaning to do for awhile...


  1. The banner looks great. I really need to update mine - the pic on mine is probably 18 months old by now!
