After much FEAR and hours of WORK I finally have a new LOOK for my blog!  Don’t even think about asking me how I did it because I couldn’t tell you if I tried.  I spent literally hours trying to figure out how to change the header and background with no luck.  Then all of a sudden I did “something” and there it was!  I do have a slight problem, however....I somehow lost my favorite BLOG LIST on my sidebar.  I hope I can figure out how to find those of you I have been visiting regularly...maybe if you leave me a comment that will help.

I hope I like this look for awhile because I don’t have it in me to do this again…at least not for a l-o-n-g time!

Your new look looks GREAT! I hate when I do something and then I don't know what I did to make it happen. It happens to me all the time. I need to spring clean my blog.

Have a wonderful day,

I love the new look! I know you worked long and hard on this into the wee hours. Sorry I wasn't there to help, I was fast asleep when your email came in.

As for finding some of those who were on your blog list, check back on some of your older comments also.

It's very nice Cheri and fits you to a tee!
And I know what you mean about trying to figure that stuff out.... it's not easy and often I forget how I did it too!

Creating a new blog "look" in Blogger or Wordpress, is not easy. I labored for ours with my present one and would like some changes but right now am doing good to write something, when dealing with more important things.

I'm so totally with you - I occasionally think about "freshening" mine up a bit but I'm terrified I'll just end up deleting the whole thing. Hopefully it's not too boring (yet :-)

Well, your hard work paid off:) It looks marvelous! Blogger takes it's own sweet time sometimes!

Hope you have a wonderful Monday! HUGS!

I think it looks great. Your hard work paid off. I just do not have the patience for it - I hired Karen V to do mine for me. LOL.

It was worth the trouble, Cheri...your new page looks spectacular! I admit to a fear of fiddling with my site...need to change my header but have not yet felt up to the challenge. You must be thrilled with how well your efforts turned out!

I've been remiss in my blog visiting, but will come back again soon...:)

Just thought I'd drop in and say "Hi". I was cleaning out my mailbox and ran across the notification from you that you had visited my blog - last August. I had made a comment about your name and you had responded by visiting my blog. The new look for your blog is perfect for the name. Once you get the hang of changing your background/header it is very easy. I change mine all the time on all my blogs.
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Have a Blessed Day!!

The blog looks great, Cheri! I'm always nervous when I change things, too! Thanks for your nice comment on my blog tonight!

I likie! Great job Cheri. I'm such a computer idiot, I'm just glad I figured out how to post and also comment on blogs! I'm always jealous of other really cool looking blogs, like yours!

BECKY said...

Hi Cheri! Your new look is fabulous...and suits you so much!! Love it! Thank you so much for taking a moment to leave a comment on my recent post, too. That really meant a lot to me! Hugs to you.

O, I adore your polka dots, Cheri. Your blog looks super good. Now, dear heart, may I tell you that if you use template design by Blogger, on your Layout page, it is sooo easy, offers tons of backgrounds, fonts, colors...and it shows you what it will look like on your blog before you change it all.
No need to change this beauty, tho.
Sorry you lost your blog list ...I have no idea how to get it back.:(
I just adore those little cherries across the perfect is that!!
xoxo bj
Oh, and make those scones...ya'll will love them..especially right out of the oven with the butter close by. :)) When you bite into one, think of me..:)
