I LOVE my pretty little headers, I love choosing my current fonts, and picking the colors and giving it its own look. And it's ALL for free.
I love figuring out something in photoshop elements that I hadn't figured out how to do prior (getting my swirls on my blog to look like that -- on the header above) was a doozy of a task, I felt pretty accomplished when it was done). Honestly, I don't know how much of that I'd know or get to do if I didn't have this blog.
It also gives me a place to show off my photography (sorry, photo Fridays do seem to be on a hiatus), any sewing or crafty stuff I do. It's just a happy thing to get feedback on what you're doing.
In the beginning I incessantly showed my most recent scrapbook layouts, and while I'd still love to do that... I actually have to DO a layout before I can post it. Maybe one of these days...
Anyway, it's a place to show off your crafty-ness, and since I'm not going to show it at any art and wine festivals I can at least do it here.
Do you like showing your crafty self on your blog?
