Like a Bandana

These will be fab as a decoration and party favor 2 in 1

They are ready for lettering or #'s
whatever your little heart desires

Tutorial Tuesday - #3 SSS

Good Morning This Tutorial Tuesday #3
 i am learning lots with these tutorials and the others posted with SSS
Today on the Blog we have a simple tutorial on how to create a simple Blog Button
I have learned myself by playing with the sizes and adding things to the squares or whatever shape you end up with
I got mostly squares
Here is a simple blog Button I created for earth Day this past Week
I used my header from my blog to start and then open in a Photo Editor

My header is from a free site, comes with everything except Text
You place in the Editor and Create whatever you prefer afterward
Make Sure you give Credit to the Host of the Templates you use
( This is Only Fair)

When placing in photo editor you can manuever mostly whatever
In this i created approx size

or just keep messing with to see what you prefer
I then can add color or take away
I also can use different methods such as things like
60's, soften, googleeyes,  and lots more to create lots

There are so many Fonts
and different and ways to decorate you just need to find what you are looking for

After finding my color scheme
I add my logo or whatever the button is for

So inside the photo editor all the different tabs
such as
and Lots Lots More
So when you feel like take a moment and try one yourself
You might enjoy it
Thanks again for Taking time For Tutorial Tuesday This week and Dont Forget to come

*****Topsy Turvy Gardening****** Earth Day 2012

Gardening - With Lisa

Dont Forget Earth Day
what a great day to wake up and hear the birds singing, and the air rustle through the leaves and trees.
To be able to see another wonderful day

I have created a blog button for myself
I love to help recycle and its even better when I can reuse
So please feel free to display this button if you would like
I would appreciate a link back to this posting please
Thanks for sharing and caring
I am happy to share some gardening ideas I have and have implemented in my newly found garden area.
I have created some Topsy Turvy Planters
Easy peasy
You start with a piece of rebar and pound into the ground where you want the planter to be
Placing the largest planter in the ground,
then placing others above of different size or shape to create the topsy turvy effect and dont put them all one direction.
Here i have started a planter with a Suzy Bell Crate - Wood

This one is challenging to me .....Wish me Luck Here.

These 2 have been primed with some leftover green paint and will be painted and planted soon this week.
Update - i got a deal on some plants this weekend
3 of these for about the price of 1 1/2


There are petunias, daisys, marigolds, Dhalias, Tulips, Iriss, and lots more growing here
Seeds are Awesome little critters
Pics with new blooms and finished Topsy turvy will be after mothers Day Due to Weather Restirictions  -FYI
I have been using recycled barrels and planters.
Dont forget to Reuse Recycle and Volunteer
