Frustrated....But Also Having Fun

This must not be my day! I joined the Art Blog Hop yesterday at #68 and had all kinds of problems getting it on my blog. When it finally appeared on my blog it had a red "x" beside my name. Now today I'm not even on there any more!! I'm completely MIA! So that's all....I'm not going to mess around with it anymore. It seems like a lot of problems and now if I add my name again I'll be way down on the list where no one will ever find me. I'm just not techie and when things don't work smoothly I get too frustrated and don't want to mess with it anymore. So have fun at the Art Blog Hop without me!!

Also I decided after that to just change up my whole look. What do you think? Be honest....'cause I'm not sure yet if I like it or not.


Recently I joined in on an ephemera swap at Woven Letters. The box arrived at my house on Saturday and it was so much fun to go through all the goodies inside.

I picked out 12 pieces that I wanted to use for collage....

and then added 12 pieces from my own stuff....

Then it's on its way to the next person and they get to do the same thing. What a great idea!! Thanks Lawendula for starting this swap! It was so much fun.


  1. I already hop from blog to blog so I didn't join that event.
    I like your new banner/header but I'm not sure about the background. I'm so used to lavender/purple on your blog that this brown one looks out of place! Just my opinion.

  2. Love the new look. I changed mine up to with the new design templates at Blogger. I assume this is were you found your as well??

  3. Janet, I love your new look!! Especially that wonderful picture of your desk!! Sorry about your trouble with the art blog hop....give a day or two then hopefully you can re-try :D

  4. Janet, You sound stressed...So, do something for you: art, tea, hammock, flowers, a good read, dinner out.
    Hugs, DJ

  5. The blog hop only shows 2 columns on my blog when really there are 3. Notice the numbers skip the last row. So I'm thinking it's a blogger template problem. I'm hidden too because I'm number 111. When I was 112 it showed. The red "x" is because it's your blog and only you can delete it if you so choose. What number are you??

    wahh! another swap I missed! Looks like you got some cool ephemera!I'm not even attempting that Art Blog Hop...I'm not sure that word press would allow it. I like your new look on your blog!

  7. Loving the new look Janet, the banner is stunning! :)
    I am SO not techie, lol.
    Much Love my friend!

  8. love the new look Janet too... you have to be a little techie to do that... I dont get the blog links that you put up so I'm not messing with getting any either I have trouble enough with some of my posts going funny on me! Great new banner!

  9. I really like the new look. It is fun to change things up once in a while. This looks sharp Janet.

  10. LOVE the new banner pic but, even though it's pretty, I'm not so sure that the brownish background really suits you. Maybe I just need to get used to it.

    I wasn't sure what the blog hop was all about so I didn't go into it. What a bummer that it played up for you though.

  11. I never heard of this type of a swap before, sounds like it is loads of fun.

    I like the new change to your blog here, looks great! Recently I just gave my main blog a newer fresher cleaner look using google's new templates.

  12. Thanks for sharing, Janet!
    Glad to hear it was fun! Enjoy your arting time! xo

  13. I love the new banner! the rest is okay but not as bright as you my dear. I didn't get in on the blog hop as I already have enough I hop around to.

  14. yeah, the X just means it's your blog to delete if you want to. you'll be on the various listed blogs anyway. and look, we're all here lol

    great background. love your header.

  15. I like it! Looks cool!

  16. Sorry you had blog hop problems. Sometimes I look at things from the bottom for just the reason you mentioned. Also the red x only shows up for you, its so you can delete your page off the hop if you want to.

  17. Somday I'll do one of these -- they look fun!

  18. I am long overdue for a visit with you :)
    Had to pop by and see what fun you were having with the collage box!
    I actually see three things that you chose that I put in the box ;)
    The Raven beer label, number flash card and the yellow hand tag ... great stuff you put IN the box!
    Happy Summer to you!
