Fun With Buttons and Something New

So I started thinking about buttons sometime ago, that’s blog buttons.  I thought it would be cool to make a few of my own.  The problem is that I came up with an idea of how I wanted them to look, but I realized they would not match my blog.  The easy thing to do would be to think of another idea.  The hard thing would be to change the look of my blog.  Guess which one I decided to do? 
So, here’s the before…
blog before

blog after
And after…  I got the background from background fairy, it’s the sister blog for Graphics Fairy the blog from which I get all those cute vintage clip art.  It was the polka dots that got me.  The idea I had for the buttons was inspired by polka dots.

Speaking of the buttons, here’s the first one. I found this great site that generates the code for these things. All you need is a hosted image and the ability to cut and paste.

For variety I made this second one.
Here’s the updated list:
  • Pens
  • Binder
  • Lunch bag
  • Backpack
  • Button
  • Scarf
  • Doll house
Five down, just two more to go.  The next one should be up Monday.  Now for the little bonus.

That’s right, starting now I will be hosting a weekly linkup every Friday.  Yay!  Only since this is the first one, it’s a little early and it will go on a little longer.
The rules:
  • No more then 5 links.
  • You must link to individual posts on your blog instead of the just your blog.
  • Same with shops (zibbet, etsy, etc.), link to a specific item in your shop. 
  • Links must be family friendly.
  • Don’t forget to grab one of my buttons.
  • Following me is not required, but it is helpful (for me).
  • Beyond that anything goes.
Now get to it and have fun.
