Hello everyone...I hope you had a great weekend. Yesterday was my moms birthday and it was a total surprise. Yesterday I found a coupon for Michaels. It's for 40% off the regular price of your whole purchase. It was a mistake by the company because it was to say 20% off the whole regular purchase. Michaels changed it after the fact that lots of people had already gotten it. Here is where to find the coupon... http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c340/dottecom/Forum%20Chatter/330929741.jpg So they have to honor it...Make sure though if you use this coupon, give it to them first because they manually ring up every item or it will only take off 40% off one item. Another beautiful day here again. I hope you have a nice day.

Adding a signature line...

Hello. I don't know if you have this problem....but everytime I add my signature at the bottom of my post, I have to go and look it up and copy it and paste it everytime. Well I got tired of doing that, so I stopped placing it there and just typed it in. Today I found out how to automatically add it in everytime. I made up my signature at http://www.livesignature.com/. When I log into blogger, I see these options: new post, edit posts, settings, layout, view blog. If you are already logged in but viewing your blog, click customize in the upper right hand corner.Then when I click on settings, the new screen has three big tabs with a bunch of smaller tabs listed underneath going across the screen. Formatting is the 3rd one from the left. So when I start a new post, the signature is right there at the beginning, and I just click in front of it and it follows along as I type. I hope this helps. It sure is alot easier and saves alot of times.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!!!

Hello all...Not much to say today...My moms birthday is less than a week so I'll have a card to show then. The kids will be back in school in about two weeks. We have alot of cleaning to do before that time. First step, cleaning the kids room. As I'm typing I'm having them empty out all the toys in there room so we can at least get to the closet to hang up all their new clothes. We have most of the things they need for back to school. I better go help them, sounds like a war in there...See you later ~Kathy~...
