A BANNER now and changes to come (more rambling)


OMG! Seriously. *squeals* I got a banner look...look. *points up to it* I AB-SO-LUTE-LY adore it. Many, many, MANY thanks to Small Review you are awesome without a doubt. This is very much what I was looking for, or shall I say what my brain had pictured. You've been very helpful. You can bet that if I have a question about how to do something on here, I'll probably come to you. :) or read one of your how-to posts.

I even put it as my laptop background. Heheh
<---This is how much I liked it. *points to the left* I see changes to the blog in the very near future now that I have a pre-tay banner. It's time for background changing and the pages above to be messed around with. By which I mean I'm now thinking drop downs. Is that possible on here? That way I can remove some of the tabs and have them as sub tabs. Does that make sense? Time to get me a lil button to match the banner so I'm not just a link, but a graphic. I know I'm very question-ey tonight.

So on to other things I actually did a waiting on wed thing if you haven't checked it out, you should. Oh I also did a Vlog on my bookshelves, but I'm not sure it turned out so good cause my electricity is still off at my apt, and the lighting in there sucks. I might still post the video later, and then just re-do it sometime because I'm sure I'll have added to it, and I kind of need to re-arrange it better. What else to say.....




My goodies!

Look at my goodies I won from The Story Siren. I actually just thought I was going to get the book, but in my package was all the coolio bookmarks, some signed others not. Then a post card for the book forget me nots by Amy White, and a sticker of the claire de lune book (which I want to read). I always get things at the right time because yesterday was a crappy day for me, and opening this package was fun. The excitiement that I had is in my upcoming IMM for Sunday which has me opening the package and discovering the stuff, and then me showing each one. A first win is always the coolest.






Well I broke-down when I went to Walmart tonight to get milk because that's all I needed, but that's not all I got. It wasn't books either. Hehehe. I bought Season 1 of the Vampire Diaries. I started to watch the season when it first came on, but I never could watch them all so I gave up and waited for it to come out. Plus I can't stand watching tv because the signals or what not are crappy, and mess up then I want to throw stuff at the tv. (Tv remotes don't work when you bang them on the tv) It was actually a toss-up between this or True Blood Season 2 (I have true blood s1) I'll probably wind up getting that one later.


I Know I'm very talkative this week huh? I'm also on a picture spree.
I'm about to pass out again getting up at at 8am and going to bed at 4am is not smart, I know but I continue to do it to myself. Hope you had fun reading all of this post if you did. :)

  1. I love your new banner! It's so awesome! And yes those drop down tabs are possible, but it's sort of complicated. I've been trying to do it on my blog now for the longest time, and I have yet to perfect it. There are a lot of tutorials about it on the net.

    You are so lucky to have won all that swag! I agree, the first win is the best!

  2. Nina- Thanks! Yeah I'm going to see if I can try and mess around with it now. (well not right now cause I keep yawning) I think it would be alot nicer and neater looking. It would give me a chance to add other pages I want.

  3. I love your new banner Ashley! I had to recheck and make sure I was on the right website! And I see you have subscribe by email to posts! That's good, I don't know how I missed that before. I really do love the banner. It looks like so much fun!

    I need to enter more contests because I want to win a ton of swag, too. I never enter things because I don't think I'll win. But last week I entered something and won two books. Maybe I should have entered a few more things, you know, to keep that win streak going. Oh well, it's probably done now.

    We are trying to get a house rewired with updated electricity and it is so expensive! I mean, I could buy a nice car for one of the quotes I got!

    Look at me, talking too much!

  6. Peep- I know right, it's different then what I'm use to but I love it. :) That's how I am with contest I don't enter much because I figure it doesn't matter. Plus I 'm not a fan of all the extras you have to do usually. *shrugs* Things are definitely expensive now days.
    It's cool to ramble I do it all the time. :0) That's just me.

    Aylee- Thank ya!
