Random 5 on Friday ~ July 26th

The Pebble Pond

1. I had so much fun doing a little blog redesign this week. I spent so much time doing it but I have to say, I am pretty excited with the end results. I even came across a pretty cool website to create blog buttons. It is a blog button generator. You put your information in and it gives you the code to add to your blog. Easy Peasy.

2. In less than a week, my new blog hop....Beauty Captured....will be starting up. I'm pretty excited. Here are the details if you don't remember or haven't heard. I am still trying to come up with a really great button for it. I'm kind of at a loss. I was thinking something with a camera but I would like to incorporate the new birdhouse logo. Not sure. Any ideas?

3. You know how last week I was complaining about the heat. Yeah, well this week has been the complete opposite. I actually had to put a sweatshirt on the other day. Weird.

4. Canning season is upon us. So far I have done banana peppers, which is a first for me, and pickles. Today I am making hot pepper mustard. Yum. I must admit it is kind of nice canning in this weather!

5. I woke up this morning to the most wonderful smell. French toast! The smell was even sweeter since I wasn't making it. In case I have not mentioned this recently....I have some pretty awesome kids.


Considering linking up?

Here are the rules. They are simple.
~ Link to your Random 5 on Friday post.
~ Add a link back to me somewhere in your post.
~ Please make sure to put the direct link to your blog post not just your blog. I like to read and comment on all of you but I can not always do it right away and I do not have time to look for it. Thanks!
~ Visit, Visit, Visit! Have fun encouraging each other. :)

LOVE this post! So grateful for UBC at this moment! Love your blog design! I use Wordpress, and since I'm not very techy, I get nervous about changing too much, but I'm curious! Could the blog button generator be used in Wordpress?

Nicole said...

Hi Miranda! i am playing around with the blog button thing. What size should the blog button be? Like 200x200??

Miranda said...

I think generally they are 100 by 100. Sometimes they are 150 by 150. Mine is round but it is 100 by 102. Good luck!

Miranda said...

Yes!

Some day I'll learn to can. And take better photos.

Why can't you just live next door?

Love the new blog design :)
