Ooooh. I have an image up in the header! I'll wait a moment while you all marvel at it.

Ok. Are you all done being marveled? I thought as much.

So it's not the most original image out there, but on the other hand, I actually haven't seen one like it in Blogland. Weeks ago I played with the image for a few hours. Getting the keys just right took some doing and then I felt the need to backfill my blog title in blue. At first I had all the other keys as-is (or avec the leftover letters), but even with the backfilled colour keys, the name just kind of got lost. So then there was the process of blacking all of those additional keys out.

Then it took some work figuring how to get the image up into the header. Blogger Help was of absolutely no help - but a few Goooooogle groups had it figgred out. I know some HTML, but not enough to have done this on my own.

So here you have it. Becky suggested I get tweak the image more and put a drop of mustard or blood (yes she said 'blood'! C'mon!!! I'm not that bad of a typist!) on the keys. I need a little more work in graphic conversion to add mustard and make it actually look like mustard.

All I have to do now is get 3 years of archived posts back on-line and I'm pretty much all done with the updates.

I am open to constructive criticism and any blog enhancing suggestions.

You really do need a job, don't you dear?!

I meant to comment on the new look the other day when I sawr it. Very cool and retro - even makes you look smart.

Kind of.

I've been dying to know how to put an image on my header, but don't have the time/patience to figure it out. I am jealous that you did.
