My New Banner and The Artsy Award!


Thank you to my new follower, Samantha!

I hope everyone had a great day!  How do you like my new banner?  I've admired all of the collage banners on other people's blogs, but I never knew how to do it.  So, I asked Rawan from Viviness and AG how to do it; thank you so much Rawan for telling me how to do it!  Make sure to go check out Viviness and AG!  I'm really happy with my new banner, and it was a lot of fun to make!  I made it using a website called PicMonkey.  It was really simple, and a lot of fun.  If you would like to make your own banner, go to PicMonkey, and click the "Create A Collage" button on the left.  Then, choose your layout (I used "FB Cover") and start uploading pictures.  Once you've finished putting your pictures it the collage, you can round corners, change your background color (or make your background transparent like I did), and space the pictures differently.  When you are finished, click the "Save" button at the top, and save it to your computer.  After you've saved your project, go to "Layout" on your blog, click "Header," add an image from your computer, and click save!  It is so much fun to design a collage, and I love having pictures on my header!

Ok, now onto the "Artsy Award!"

I was awarded the "Artsy Award" by Jess from Rosalyn's Blog!

The Rules:

1. Normally this is where it says "thank the person who gave the award and leave a link to their blog etc. etc."  Well, you can do that if you want.  I mean, if you like the award and you're glad you got it then you can do that.  Or you can just copy this and have people listen to me rambling. :)

Thank you Jess!

2. Answer the 5 questions set out for you and make the next five questions for the people you nominate.  So, if you get awarded, here are your 5 questions:

  1. Hi Grace! Thank you so much for nominating me! I tried to make a banner, and I did, but once I clicked layout on my blog, I didn't see a place to click header. I'll try it again... Anyway, yours looks brilliant! ~Claire

    1. Thanks! The "Header" bar on layout should say your blog title and then in parentheses it will say header. Just click on that. I hope it works for you!


    2. Thank you Grace! I did figure out how to do it. But Blogger wont load the picture. It wont load any pictures on the side bar any more. It says that I have exceeded my photo upload quota. AHHHH! So frustrating! Thank you though! ~Claire
