My daughters craft blog { and a free blog background }

My 6 year old daughter has a craft blog now!
She had been asking me to take pictures of all her crafts and creations for a while now. She even asked me to take photos of her making things "so other kids can learn how to make them too".  She kept telling me not to put it on my blog but on her blog since they were her crafts. But her blogs name and URL had nothing to do with crafting. So I made her a new one! It's called One creative kid.
I designed the header, the background, and other icons myself. I played a lot with bright and vibrant colors, something I don't really do on my blog. It was so much fun!  My daughter asked me to put humming birds on the header so she gets credit for that. It would have been so boring without those. Here is the image to make your own gingham blog background. And who doesn't LOVE gingham right?

 Here is how to put it onto a Blogger blog.
First you go to the Design tab in blogger and click "Template Designer".



Now click "Background"

Click the arrow or "remove image" to open the menu.

Next click "upload Image".


Click "Browse" and choose the image you want.


After loading your image, click "Tile" to view the menu.

Click "Tile" in the menu.

And last click "APPLY TO BLOG"
 You're done!
 Now go take a look at your awesome blog!
 Here are some more free blog backgrounds, they're smaller, and in different colors and angles. You can use these for desktop wallpaper too!  Happy gingham blogging everyone!

Your daughter is awesome! I love that she has her own blog. And very pretty gingham pattern Lorajean. I love gingham. It reminds me of summer which is a nice memory since it feels/and is so far away.

Whenever you want to get together I am game. Well...I have to work around school and some stuff but I am more free in the next couple of weeks than later in the month. I have been thinking of using some of my lace to revamp some chocolate heart boxes. You know the $1 ones from Walmart. I thought we could cut some cereal boxes slightly bigger, cover them in fabric and glue them to the outside of the box lids! Okay...this comment is getting too long. Just let me know if that is something you would be up for.

Okay, your daughter's blog has got to be the cutest thing I've seen. Seriously, I LOVED reading her info and step by step instructions.
1. take any paper
2. fold it in half
3. staple down the sides.

So cute! I really love that it's from her perspective and in her own words. She will really love having that one day when she's a famous artist!
