Some of those codes are starting to make sense and things are starting to work. I am also trying to learn photoshop so designing my button and header was the first part of my hair pulling experience. Son #3 helped a bit. Layers, transparency,.gif vs .jpg, these are all important things when trying to figure it all out. Always helpful to have a snarky teenage son around to go to for guidance.
Son #1 designed my original page. He took the photo of the seagulls that were in my header and with son #3 they put together the header. He also took the photo of the fabric which is my background. I still like it but might try changing the color a bit. I just wanted to learn how to do it so when I got bored with looking at something I could change it myself.
I am learning not to fear the edit html page like I once did. Just save the template first! Just in case you go off the deep end and hit save when you meant to hit preview.
There are little things like spacing that can drive a woman to drink. Finding the correct spot to put the code to move things just slightly without wacking out everything else is hard to do. Take the date of my post for instance. I can't get it to move to the left without moving the whole body over with it.
I am amazed at how fast time flies by when you are so engrossed in trying to figure something out. You look at the clock and you scream 1:30?? What happened to 11:30 or 12:30? Did I just go through some sort of time warp? But I will not quit. I will keep going and see how much more I can learn. But when my butt starts feeling numb that's a good sign to step away from the computer and do something else. Dinner might be a good idea.
I am linking up with Donna for her Gitter Done challenge. It might not be done but I'm gitten there.
