its' been a header playday...

a few of you have been asking about my headers...
they are semi homemade...
sometimes I start with a basic header from one of the sites that offer free headers and backgrounds...
like this one...
then I add and play around until it looks like this...
or I find a free graphic like this...
and do this...
or a free card graphic like this...
and end up with to one I am using now...
I have a folder full of them...
I think they have gotten better over time...
the graphics that I find now are better...
and all you have to do is play...
I have seen some wonderful headers where the blogger used their own photos...
and I love them!
one of these days...
I want to play around with that, too...
most of my playdays are in the winter months...
or when I can't sleep at night...
which isn't happening very much at all anymore...
praise God...
I am able to sleep all night long now...
it's been years!

so...
it's not hard...
just play...
play is supposed to be fun...
don't over think it...
you can do it over if it's not coming out right...
and you can change it at anytime!
so...
go play!

NOTE: I had to change my music player- Playlist decided it would be better if they no longer offered the autoplay because people were complaining about music on websites.  They also decided to add ads every couple of songs...so since that was not what I wanted on my blog at all...
I deleted them completely and found another source...
which is a little harder to navigate and I am still trying to get used to it...
so for now, I have just a few songs...
I haven't been able to find some of my favorites...
but I'm still looking...
so until I get this figured out and more songs downloaded...
this is it...

I meant to comment on your new header earlier before I got hauled out of the house by MyHero. It looks great..I really love the little bird with chalkboard. I didn't realize the music thing had changed. I quit using my music when I started posting SCheeks videos because of the sound interruption. It seems they can't leave well enough alone sometimes, doesn't it?

Have a good evening and get a good rest- I am off to work tomorrow again. Hugs- Diana

The new header is beautiful. It's like changing flowers on ones mantle! :)
