Blog Template: Numbers

Hello, all. Just finished a blog template for you.
 I'm sure you've seen versions of this in magazines and on the web. Here's my version!
Here's how I used it - to show off my fave decorative tapes (on my want list!). 

Here's the basic format. In my example, I used a psd template with squares for you 
to drop your images in. That way, if your image doesn't have a white background, 
it will be a uniform shape. If you don't use Photoshop, I'm including a png image for you. 
You can use it in any image editing program.

Clippies. [Jars].

Whoa. It's been over a month since I've posted here.
Life's been crazy. I've gotten engaged.
And, oh yeh, I'm getting leaving my job in 2 weeks, getting married in 2.5 weeks and moving
ACROSS THE COUNTRY 2 days later.
Yes, whoa.

So I hope you can excuse my absence.
I'm back with some pretty useful clippies.
Click to copy & paste image.
Here's how I used them. I created two layouts,
which you can download for free by clicking the image!

Link Love.

Sorry I've been MIA for a few weeks. Sometimes life gets busy. 

But I'm back! And I wanted to share this really cool site I found via HowAbout Orange.
Icon Finder, a site for free icons (for your blog or computer desktop), many that are available for commercial use. Check it out!

Just some of my faves. Enjoy!
