I have one glitch right now. The “Home Page” is a bit wonky at first go. I have to wait for a tech person to come in on Monday at my Web Hosting Service to help get that tweaked.
Go to Message In A Fold and click on any of the Navigation Buttons on the left side, then click on the “Home” button and you will see the Home Page as it has been created by me.
Now this old girl has had a bit of “Lipstick and Mascara” applied to her. She has a hitch in her “Get Along” at first but she works fine.
Most of the content is recycled from my older website version. So I guess I can lay claim to “NEW AND IMPROVED” :D.
This has been one heck of a battle, let me tell you.
I am very proud to say that all of the navigation links have been created by me from photos of a flower that I made in my very own craft room. I’ve then taken that flower to Photoshop Elements and worked some magic on it to be the links to the various pages in my website. NOW I’m “Dangerous”. I have been gifted with a little bit of knowledge of Photoshop Elements and I can wreck havoc there :D. For me….a little knowledge is always dangerous 😀
As you troll through you will find a teeny flower with the word “Top”. That is the button to click on to go back to the top of the page you are looking at.
The “Header”, as I’ve already stated is my very own creation. It is part of one of the belly bands I made for the Christmas gift boxes for our friend, Tim.
Right now, I’ve had the sight of my website everyday from about 5:30 a.m. to well past 10:00 at night for the past two weeks. Clicking my computer keys to create this work. I kind of know why the “geeks” are mostly found with soda pop and potato chips all the time. To much coding, check to see if the coded stuff works right, then going back to fix what doesn’t work. I’m just a bit sick of looking at it.
I have a few sections I need to work on and you will find that they are “Under Construction” and will be for another few days until I get them fully fleshed out. The “GIFTS” button will take you to an error message page. I forgot to put the “Under Construction” page in that little spot.
Lynn, I’m sorry that I didn’t respond to your comment on my last post. I was “up to my arse in alligators” with this CSS and XHTML stuff. Shelly, I haven’t responded to your comment either. I have no idea why Lynn’s comment didn’t get automatically approved as Shelly’s did.
Joe can testify to the fact that he got his ear chewed off each time he called to interrupt a coding session.
I am now a Certificate carrying CSS and XHTML person – whatever that is called. Please, don’t ask me to build you a website. Those people have to totally love this stuff like we do our crafting. I can’t say that I love coding or doing HTML. Not at all! I can at least get my two certificates framed – last year’s HTML and this years CSS and XHTML – and put them on my wall.
Maybe I’ll venture into the next bit of Foolishness and take a course on adding a Forum to this website next winter. I need that long of time to pass before I get another hair brained idea :D.
If you have any suggestions about items you would like to see in my website, leave a comment with any ideas and I will consider them.
Next, I need to leave a link to my website at the computer course site so I can be assured of having completed the class and turned in all my work. Joe’s home for a couple days. I won’t be coding from pre dawn to dark over the next few days so don’t count on many change or additions right away.
Hope you like it. Mostly I just HOPE it works in your browser and you can see it without a lot of trouble.
Have a great week everyone.
