playing with my blog

I am really trying to find a background and banner that fits me. I love purple, butterflies, faeries, and goth type. Can't seem to find something that will be easy for me to add to my blog.

I also love HAED patterns and i really want to start one soon but I have so many other WIPs and UFOs to stitch and I don't want it to turn into a UFO. I have a big family room and would to change the colors in it to have my one whole wall into all of my finishes. Especially fantasy pieces.

I also am in a RR which is taking up a lot of my time and I joined several exchanges. I can't wait for this batch of exchanges to be over so I can stitch on a WIP/UFO during the week. So much to stitch so little time. I also have 4 audiobooks to listen to and 3 movies from netflix to watch. I am hoping to get a lot accomplished this weekend. Just perch on my corner of the couch with my bottled water and remotes or ipod and no one bother me all weekend LOL. With a DH and 2 teenage boys I don't see that happening. Hmmm I wonder if DH will take me to the LNS on Saturday. I need to get Dylan some fabric as he wanted a mythical creature to stitch and I found one and bought it online. But it is as time consuming as a HAED so we will see if his patience will keep him at it. It has a lot of bright colors in it and takes a lot of floss.

Well the clock just chimed that it is 11 pm. Dylan is out in the backyard with a few friends having a bonfire. At least they are being quiet. He had one last night with the promise of no one sneaking in alcohol (I know party pooper mom) but his friends were glad that I said no. They were gone by midnight last night and I never knew they were here. They are right behind my bedroom too so I would have heard them. They also have to respect the neighbors who get up for work as well.

Night All and thanks for reading my ramblings.

That's not a party pooper mom; that's a smart mom! I hope your find the background you're looking for. i do like the one you have. Hope you get your stitching weekend.

All those choices and not enough time. I think that is true with all of us these days. The blogging community has opened our eyes to such a variety of stitching and we just want it all. Have a great weekend and I hope you fit some stitching time in there.

Great example set, Mom. Very smart. I too have played with my main blog and can't find the right background. I am into green and really don't like pink, but if you look at both my blogs you would think I love pink.
Good luck.

I love the background that you have right now! IT is great! You are not being a party pooper at all, you are just trying to keep everyone safe! That is not a pooper! LOL

I have my teenage stepsons staying with me this week while they are on spring break. It changes our whole routine because we have a 4-year old also, but I try, same as you, to let them have friends over to hang out and have fun and then go home at a reasonable hour. The friends seem thankful for the hospitality and it keeps them out of trouble too.

I like the pink background - it's kind of different - denimy. Have you tried Cutest Blog on the Block? She says she takes requests, I don't know if that's for the freebies, too. But she's always adding new ones, I keep checking back to see if she's added new 3-column templates.

Thanks for visiting my blog and your comment.
Love the background for your blog, gorgeous colours.
You really should go for it and start a HAED. I've been stitching HAED's for about 4 years now and love them, I have 4 on the go at the moment. They are a real labour of love so I'd say start one and let yourself do a little on it now and again.

Stick to your guns mom that is the only way they learn! I like the current background except the "visited link" color doesn't show up at all on this particular background, but that is very easily fixed if you want to change it.
