I have a blog button (updates)!

Creating a blog button is something that has been on my to-do list for quite some time now. Last week I finally did it. You can now grab a button from the sidebar by copying the text underneath the picture!

The catalyst for getting it done was that I won ad space on two of my favorite blogs, plus one new (to me) blog, last week! Do you remember the birthday giveaway I helped sponsor last week for Dawn at Addicted to Recipes? Well, it must have been my lucky week because I won a prize four out of the five days (there were about five prizes offered a day - it was a birthday extravaganza!).

Head over to White Lights on Wednesdays and Crazy for Crust to see the button in action (and to be inspired by the awesome ladies who run these blogs). I also won an ad spot at Live.Laugh.Rowe., but it  isn't up quite yet (but don't let that stop you from clicking over, Kelly's blog is great). Finally, I won a $20 wally-world gift card from Quick Asian Recipes (a blog full of mouthwatering Indian food). Woo-hoo!

If you missed out on Dawn's birthday giveaways, don't worry. September 16th is Julie's one year blogiversary for White Lights on Wednesday, and she's hosting a pretty fantastic giveaway party to celebrate. There will be eight sponsors providing phenomenal prizes, so be sure not to miss it! I'll be giving away one of my decoupaged Christmas ornaments (winner's choice of book page, sheet music, or map decoupage).

  1. Look at you Fancy Pants! I love your button!! And those Ornaments are super cute!!

  2. I don't do buttons myself or awards but I must say your button is one of the nicest I have ever seen. You have a good eye. Cheers

  3. So glad you found my little Blog Tips useful. I see you are now a follower - great. Cheers

  4. Thanks Monica for the suggestion re post template - I just tried it and so far haven't been able to make it work. I will perservere and see if it needs different code from the sidebar one.

  5. Yay! I love all your ornaments. You're one of my fave bloggers too. :) BTW, I won two of dawn's prizes too. Score! Can't wait for the next giveaway.

  6. Love the new button! And those ornaments are cute! Someone is going to be very happy to win one :)

  7. Love the new button! I'm testing to see if I am still a no-reply blogger. Your idea of switching from google+ profile back to blogger worked--I think! I hope! Do I still show up as no-reply?

    Thanks for your idea!


I always love to hear from you! I try to reply to every comment (by email, or by commenting back on your blog). Thanks for stopping by.
