If you would like to try one of Mike's banners, visit his blog as well as his Flickr site. He made up several banners in different background colors. I just saved the one I liked from Flickr to my computer, added the text through Photoshop and then downloaded it to Blogger. I tried several templates to go with it, but found I liked the same one the best. Can't get past pink! Hmm!! The other templates are not as nice except the black, and I don't think I am ready to go to black. Sorry, Mike! I love it on your blog!
Here's an update on the bamboo tile bracelet. Still in progress. Have to wait for the Diamond Glaze to dry. I added words to the back of some tiles. Jewels and turquoise bits to the fronts. This is a cowgirl bracelet! Got to have some bling!! Am also putting together a necklace with the left over tiles.
