Yeah - I Did It

Cotton Pickin Cute

This may not be a big deal to anyone else but I finally made my first button!  I know nothing about html, etc.  That should be obvious by now.  And I don't have Adobe and if I did I'm sure I'd still be totally confused.  I have a very, very old program called Presto (believe me it's ancient).  But I'm proud to say I still fumbled my way through till I did it, which took me forever and who knows if I'll ever be able to do it again.  (I have to do things about 5 times close together to be able to retain it).

There are simple instructions for most people on this great blog I found called Mommy's Idea.  Her blog is all about giveaways, reviews and how to.  Like this tutorial for instance.  Just click here or on Mommy's Idea and check it out for yourself.  This is not an advertisement, she doesn't know I'm writing this.  I just like to share when I find something that really helps me.

I really did write this because I was so excited that I have finally created my first button.  If any of you could post about my giveaway or put my button on your blog I would so appreciate it!  If you do please be sure to leave a comment on the giveaway page so an extra entry.

Thanks Dear Friends for a year of fun.  Hugs...Tracy :)
