Labels and looking professional

One of the first things I did when I found out I lost my job was make this blog three columns. That was a great since of accomplishment and something that was easy to do at the beginning. I also want to get my website renovated to become the portal to Froggy Fibers on the web. It would include links to my blog, my Etsy, my ArtFire, my Flickr etc... etc... etc. I, however, and not a web designer, graphic designer or similarly knowledgeable design type person. I am just a budding fiber artist.

What I have done recently is an effort to look more professional on my meager budget. So by using the banner from the blog, some cotton stationary, and a 9 inch paper trimmer I was able to create wrap around labels for my listed goods. Prior to this, I attached a business card and a cute little info card via hole punch and yarn. While I am not saying that using a business card isnt useful, there really are so many other things that they can be used for.


In order to avoid the commitment of Etsy vs ArtFire, I chose to commit to using my own website address. That's why its even more important that I can utilize that space appropriately as a portal to the world of Froggy Fibers. I'm sure there is more progress to come so stay tuned!

Things are looking good here! How did you change to 3 columns? I like your label idea, too. They look great.

Hey there, the Flickr widget is really hard to find! It took about an hour to unearth it when I was looking. I posted it on Etsy....so it's easy to find. Log into your Flickr...and enter this into your browser:

You can pick which widget you want, and copy/paste the html into your widget adder on blogspot dashboard!
