Finished for Friday: New Blog Layout

Lit and Laundry

Welcome to the first Finished for Friday for 2009! Today my show and tell consists of the new blog layout. Seemed like a simple idea at the time but I've learned that it can take a while to switch over. An entire day to be exact, and at least one thing still doesn't work right. Thank you to Cheri for kindly emailing me and letting me know when the comments section wasn't working.

I've also made a button for Finished for Friday. You can grab the code from the sidebar and paste it into your post or your blog to show you're playing along. Many thanks to zakka life for the tutorial on creating a button! I never could have figured this stuff out on my own.

So join in if you've kept up with a resolution, cleaned up your decorations, or gotten something done this week. Thanks for playing along! I'm working on a giveaway that I'm going to offer to future Finished for Friday participants, so stay tuned!

Lovely layout! It's nice to change things up from time to time, isn't it?

LauraC said...

Love it! Every year I tell myself it's time for a new blog layout and every year, it doesn't happen!

Eileen said...

oooo.. Pretty. I'll have to get used to it. Like when they change the aisles around in the grocery store.. you have to hunt for things and then discover all sorts of new stuff.. exciting!

Looks great.

and you know how to make those buttons now???? HOW??? I have to know! It is like a secret hidden knowledge I have yearned for!

(love the button too) and if I actually ever finish anything I am gonna use it!

Kellie said...

Thanks for the invite! This is good. Gives me a goal to work for. One project per week! I can do that, right? :)

Love the layout! Very "spring"-y! The tulips are so beautiful as I watch the grapple fall out of the dark, grey sky outside my window!

Vegmom said...

Love this idea.. Found it in on Casa Llamedos...Not sure I'll always have something on Fridays as Saturdays are my normal get it done days... but I will be motivated this way for sure!!!

Thanks for the added kick! And your site is very nice by the way! :-)

Your new layout looks great! Thank you for linking to the site and mentioning about how to make a button. I was surprised to see that when I was reading the post.

Happy New Year

Love the new bright & cheery layout! Very nice!
You are so right... it's very time consuming creating a new look for a blog!
Great job!

I finished up some projects back before Christmas but couldn't post them until now.

I love the tulips, but I miss the gorgeous quilt you had up there before.

It's so bright and cheery! Love it. Thank you for continuing the Finished for Friday series! I may not always participate, but I do love it, plus it keeps me motivated to push forward with the knitting!

Change is ALWAYS good. It keeps us on our toes!!

I like the layout. I am so behind after being out of town so I can't play along this week. I hope to next though!

Patty said...

I made potato salad for New Years and finished it today -- does that count? :) And, thanks for making a button for FFF!

I posted a rocket ship amigurumi pattern I created. I was going to wait and post on Friday, but wanted to get it up on Ravelry.com tonight.

angie said...

Your layout looks great......and how exciting to have your own friday meme. I'll definitely have to join in occasionally!

DebD said...

I love the new layout, especially on this deary rainy day. I finally took the time to organize my RSS feed and have added you in so I can keep up a bit better.

Happy Feast Day.
