Welcome!

I love working with crafts, rug hooking, wool felt, penny rugs and stitcheries. Primitives are my favorites, but I also love to mix different styles of decorating.

Please sit back, relax and enjoy my blog.

Valentine Swap for Artists or Crafters

I've just joined my first blogger swap for artists or crafters!!  I'm so excited.  These swaps sounds like so much fun.  This one is for Valentine's Day.  The website for the swap is primandwhimsy.com and the deadline to sign up is January 15, 2010.  

I'm having a lot of difficulty understanding the "grabbing" of badges or banners to place on my blog so others can see what I'm interested in or participating in.  If someone wants to help explain this to me, that would be great.  I've tried to search for help on this, but can't really come up with a good answer.  I get the impression that the badges or banners are actually supposed to be links to the sites, but so far I'm not getting that to happen on my website. 

I'm anxious to sign up for other blogger swaps.  There seem to be so many - Easter swaps, harvest swaps, Christmas swaps, secret Santa swaps, and probably many more I haven't explored.  I can't wait!!

If you read this post and want to let me know about a swap for artists or crafters of which you are aware, please let me know.  I'd be glad to check it out.

Hey Sharon! Your borders look wonderful and I just know you'll wrap your head around the little details of blogging really soon. Good luck with all your swaps - my advice ... don't overload yourself and end up with lots of deadlines all very close together - it leads to headaches! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

Kris, thanks so much for the email response you gave me with the explanations of how to add the links, badges, etc. I've added quite a few links to other blogs. I'm still tweaking the blog as I'm unable to "drag" any of the badges other than from top to bottom where they are. But your help was amazing and I would never have figured it out without it. I do understand you advice about not signing up for too many deadlines at one time. I want to sign up for all of them, but that is totally unrealistic as I work full time at a law firm and have to sleep sometimes. lol...

Thanks again for your great advice. You've apparently been blogging for a while and know the "ins" and "outs" of the game. Hopefully, I'll catch on soon.
