Picture your beautiful bathroom that you have just lovingly freshened up with some new towels, bath mat and cute accessories. Then you take one look a your new waste basket and it’s draped with the ugly, ill-fitting shopping bag with handles. Ok, so you get points for re-using but still, it’s not a pretty sight and…

By Tara Riceberg, Guest Contributor – Party Planning & Entertaining
You couldn’t erect a home without a strong foundation, so why would you host a party without the same attention to detail and substance? First, you must determine the theme. Try to be specific. Instead of Halloween go with antebellum Gothic. A baby shower becomes Lions, Tigers, and Twins, Oh My! Next, make your…Continue

Ugh, my brain is fried! For the past 2 days I have been dabbling in learning how to make buttons, social media icons, and banners. As you can see I only succeeded in finishing one of those things...the banner.
I thought I had made my own button with it's own grab code, but nope. Turns out the "tag" is broken. Which is lame computer language for you failed dumbie, try again.
