Look Ma, I'm Coding!

For those of you that know me, you will know that I am not a huge fan of the latest and greatest technology. I still have (and use) my VCR. It's not that I'm a pack rat it's just that VHS tapes are so dang durable, and my VCR still works so I haven't taken the time to switch completely over to DVD. Plus I haven't found "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" on DVD yet.
So it should be completely shocking to most of you that I was able to create this button and somehow attach it to my blog...You will note it off to the right somewhere...
I'll pause for applause......
No takers? Well anyway....Yes, I made this in paint, and yes half of the eggplant is missing. The carrot also appears to be floating in mid air, not because I didn't know how to fix it...merely because eating carrots will give you night vision and other powers, like apparently levitation. I had made another button, and the lettering was too small to read so this is what I came up with. You will see my old design now at the top of my page (how about another round of ahh lady in the back, you are too kind*).

You will also note that the button is attached to some stuff, which you can also copy...and put somewhere. Don't ask me where, I barely know how it got on my blog to begin with.

I'd like to thank Grace, who has been encouraging me and giving me ideas over the past two weeks. I'd also like to thank my husband, who told me that my levitating carrot button looked "great"....if only to get me to go to bed.

*I am aware of my need for therapy.


  1. yay! I've been meaning to make one of these myself, you and I have similar love/hate relationships with technology so you making this gives me a confidence boost! you're also now under my sites I heart section :-)

  2. Thanks, always glad to boost confidence!Oh and, yay for being hearted. :)
    You can do it, I'm sure of it. It will probably take you less time than it took me too.

  3. It looks great and the egg plant isn't missing. Half of it is hiding behind the squash. And that magical carrot does look great!
    Made the pumpkin soup tonight and it turned out great! I'm actually getting harmonious with my stove and it was kind of fun..don't tell my husband tho cause I don't want him to expect it every day LOL.

  4. Yay! I am glad you like my soup. :) You could always do what my husband does to stay out of the kitchen, he pretends not to know how to do something simple like boiling water, or just makes a HUGE mess every time he goes in there. I haven't asked him to cook in ages. But that's ok, he does yard work, flooring, and heavy lifting so it evens out.:)

  5. I had a wonderful fellow blogger make one for me! I need to give her a shout out still! I have no idea how to make one so I applaud your efforts! It looks great!

  6. YAY! its really cute and it is going on my blog, soon as we are done moving and get to it. I am so proud of you going for it like that, good job :)
