I have been side tracked and I am stuck here for a bit.

Oh Geesh, this is fun!!

  1. I'm here and I plan to stay!♥ Love these Marie!!

  2. OOOoooooo I LoVe the new look of your blog AND your little skelly! Cute-cute! Looks like a good place to be stuck. **happy smiles** Deb

  3. Thank you so much Darla. Thank you so much for your support.
    Happy Sisterfriend day too.
    I love and appreciate you!
    I am so grateful you are one of my sisterfriends.
    Giant hugs.

  4. Thank you so much Deb. Felt like it was time for a change in here. I had a blast playing with the new template designer too. Quite a neat gadget that blogger has.
    I am glad you like my skelly.
    Have a great day, gorgeous!!

  5. I too love the look of your "new" blog Marie!!! It makes me want to smile! : )

    How did you get the template designer?

    Love your skelley in the heart!

    Move to you~

  6. Marie, these are so cute and fun! Who ever figured out how much fun skulls can be? Nice new blog, looks great!

  7. Thank you Pattee. You have to be in Blogger in draft first(make blogger in draft your default page) and then go to the layout page from your dashboard and it will be the last page under the tabs on the top. Right after "pick a new template".
    I am so glad you like my skelly.

  8. I have always had this morbid fascination with bones, Jan. LOL!! I wanted to be an archeologist. Maybe Day of the Dead had something to do with it.
    I needed the change in here. I am glad you like it!

  9. Very cute Miss Marie! Love the "new" blog summery! Big hugs Beth

  10. I like the tangent you are on- You sould go on a tangent every day! Really nicely done! The colours, so bright and happy- happy skulls!

  11. Thanks Beth, I needed a spring sruce up!!
    Glad you like it.

  12. Thanks so much,Linda Sue. I go through tangents regularly. I am sure it won't be long till the next one! LOL!!

  13. got me. Skulls and sacred hearts....yank the line, set the hook and REEL ME IN!!!! :D
    So I am assuming this is one of the new Blogger in Draft BGs.....if so, is it easy to use? I took one look and RAN.....


  14. Hi Marie, Wowwww I almost thought I was in the wrong place! lol I love it, your blog looks greatttttttt! Your new header/banner is fantastic! Did you make that gorgeous banner in the new template designer? hmm I just love it!
    Your piece is very awesome to! I hope that you have a wonderful day!
    Hugs and much love to you...

  15. Thanks Anne, that was easy! LOL!!
    Anne, I thought it was pretty easy and a smart cookie like you should probably pick up on it real quick.
    You do not have to do anything except punch buttons and try stuff first. Do not hit apply to blog, that's all, just play frst. You can also download your whole blog and reload it if you hate the changes. They have a whole tutorial in there about it.
    I just went in and played with color schemes and borders and font for a few days before commiting to anything. The Budda bust is very nice for the outside.
    I would have liked to load my own picture for the outside background. It actually probably saved me from getting too busy though. LOL!! I like this right now and it feels good and I am so happy with the results. I don't mind helping if I can, so leap baby! LOL!! Some of the changes do not show up until you hit apply to blog, just so you know!!

  16. I just found your blog and am so inspired by your work. Thank you for sharing. I can't wait to stop back again and see more of your new work. Just lovely! Thank you!
    xoxo, juliette

  17. Hi Bobbi you are in the right place, just did a overhaul on the blog.
    I did not make the banner in the template designer, you have to do that in different program. The template designer just changes the colors, the backgrounds, the fonts and stuff like that. It was time for a change, I am so glad you like it!
    Love and hugs.

  18. Thanks so much Juliette, I am so glad you like it.
    You made my day!
    I am coming over to see you now!!

  19. These are just awesome. Good place to be stuck I think.

  20. Very beautiful Marie! Your creations always makes me smile from ear to ear! btw, whats Sistersfriendday? I never heard of it... We have Queensday the 30th of april and most people don't know what that is, do you :-)

  21. Thanks Nicole!! I think it is a pretty good place to be stuck. I am glad to be here.

  22. Thank you so much Donna. My stuff making you smile makes me smile!!!
    Sisterfriend day is a holiday that my sisterfriend Ces made up.
    Thank you fo being my sister friend.
    I am so grateful for you!
    I don't know what queen's day is. What is it?

  23. wow, marie, your blog looks great! very very classy. the background highlights everything beautifully. i read your instructions on how to do this and it sounds so simple, but i would be afraid of deleting my whole blog. such is me...

    i've never seen skellies before and now i have pam's litle emily plush on my kitchen windowsill.

    re your comments about the incredible and special relationships we forge blogging: yes yes. it is amazing. xoxo

  24. marie, i hope blogger did not swallow my comments whole....

  25. No matter the art 'form' it is easy to get distracted & stuck on one path for a while lol. Don't worry about it we all go there sometimes lol.

    Cool skulls you can't go wrong with a skelelton or a skull or too. That reminds me i have about 80 to work with soon talk about getting stuck on a side track lol.

  26. Oh, oh, oh, may I just say I LOVE this!! It reminds me of living in New Mexico and all our visits to Oaxaca, Mexico. I so miss all the skull art, but we have plenty of it in our house... As well as real animal bones and skulls we have found out in nature. Can you tell we have a thing about bones...

    So glad you are having fun!! Love, Silke

  27. Thank you kj. I am very happy with the change in here. I love the colors.
    I think it is perfect that you won Pam's Emily skelly to go with your Emily!
    Changing the blog is very easy and I will help if you need it too!!
    This blogger world is amazing isn't it?


I am so glad you stopped by. Please leave your words of wisdom. I look forward to them and I so enjoy reading them all.
