An experiment...

I'm feeling a great deal better today! Antibiotics are marvelous things! I love doctors! The sun is shining, and it's supposed to reach 12 degrees C today. That is balmy! That's around 54 F. The last of the snow melted from our front yard yesterday. Fantastic!!! It's only been there since Dec 13th!

I tried a little experiment. I've seen so many lovely blogs in the past few weeks, and I'd love to send them something special that I made myself, so I designed my first blog button. I used an old 2001 Microsoft Picture It Publishing program. I can't understand Adobe Photoshop; I'm quite computer illiterate.

Here is my button: It's 2" x 2" and I wonder if it's too big? Well, if you find an email with this button in it, you know I adore your blog! I went and tweaked the button; it was too big. Now it's only 1.5" x 1.27" so it should be perfect.

Hi Loretta,
What a darling button you've created! Thanks for visiting my blog today. I'm glad you're feeling better. I see you're from Vancouver! I have my son, his wife, and their new baby here visiting from Vancouver right now.
Have a wonderful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh good...you're better!

I'm more computer illiterate than you...what's a button?

Hi Loretta, Thanks for stopping by my blog! My daughter has Samantha and several of her outfits and accessories stored away somewhere. I had no idea Mattel had retired her. We should dig her out and make sure she's well preserved!
