(click on photo for better look)
I created this photo tonight out of the collection of stuff I love. I want to make it my new header, but I don't know how to make it small enough to use. I tried and it is enormous! If anyone has experience with this please leave me a comment because I really want to use this photo as the header for my site. Thanks ~nita~
I figured out how to do the banner today by a comment that Jeanne left me. Her site is: Dream, Create, Inspire... Jeanne has a lovely site, if you have time pop over.

You've got little Polly Pockets! I can't help you with the technical questions, but I sure like your new banner idea. What an eclectic mix of treasures.

mon@rch said...

Sorry, never used blogger and can't help with your header! Looks great though!

Jeanne said...

You need to resize your immage. My blog banner is 880x183 (pixels). I had to play around with mine for a while too before it would fit. Good luck!

Amanda: The Pollly Pockets were Elizabeths when she was little. She was going to throw them away when she got a little older and I rescued them. I am glad you like my new banner idea I hope I can get it to work. xoxo nita

Mon@rch: Thank you. Glad you like it. the bird in the nest was my grandmas, she used it every year for the top of the christmas tree when my mum was a little girl. she gave it to me a few years before she passed. now i use it for the top of our christmas tree. ~nita~

I use photoshop to resize my images. (image, image size). It depends on your software that you use to manipulate your images. After resizing I save as so I can retain the original large image in case I want it for something else. Happy Headers!

Delila: Thank you! I am glad you like it. And thanks for the wish...xoxo nita <3

Bobbie: I am going to look into getting photoshop, I have alot of projects I want to do with it. xoxo nita ^_^

Nathalie Thompson said...

What a wonderful photo! A perfect banner image for you!

red tin heart said...

Nathalie: Thank you sweetheart. I have had the idea for this photo in my head for about a week. And last night I just pulled it all out and started snapping. The saying, create your own happiness, is something my Mom use to say to me when I was I was little. We often were hard pressed and she use to take paint and paint the kitchen, and wash all the curtains and iron them. And I would ask her why she did it so often. She would tell me she was creating her own happiness. She said you have to in life because no one will do it for you. xoxo nita <3

red tin heart said...
