No Wonder I'm Single

This is how I spent my Friday night:

I didn't like the picture in my blog header so I decided to re-do it. First, I scanned my embroidery to see how that would look. Ugh.




Then, I played around with the original picture on Picnik. I used the Sharpen button and it made a difference. I added a border in the same color as the links on my blog and this is what I ended up with.




This is the header I put up earlier today. I really like #2 better so I will be replacing this one. So, it's the same embroidery, just a little more sharpened.



Thanks so much for all the nice comments you left me!!

I got in bed Fri night at 8:30 and read until midnight. I wonder which of us is more exciting!
I really like that laundry line, and now you're Ms. Photoshop, too!

It looks great! I guess you can keep it. I'll have to make my own.

I just love that little picture. I seriously heart it. I wonder if I could copy it for Shelby's room ...

I'm impressed - 3 new posts since I was here last. Yay!
