I did it!



I made a button! 
It's right over there in the side bar --------->
And it's got the little code box so that people can copy the code and add the badge to their own blog.  It took hours of following various tutorials and failing repeatedly and then finding a different tutorial with much easier instructions and much clearer code, and presto, it's done.  I can't tell you how happy this makes me.

So if you want to add the "Mail Me Some Art" button to your blog, all you need to do is copy the code in the box under the button, and paste it into a gadget.

(and in case you don't know how to do that, here's how to do it in Blogger. If you use another blog format, I expect it will be a little different.  From the design section, choose "layout" and then "add a gadget".  From the list of gadgets choose "HTML/Java Script" and paste that code into the box that opens up.  Save it, and it should be in the sidebar of your blog.  When people click on it, they will go directly to this site.)

Help spread the word about this lovely group of people so more people can join the fun!
Everyone is welcome here.


If you want to create your own blog button and "grab box" here's the tutorial I found most helpful.

  3. Yay! Awesome button! Now if I can just get my blog up and running (or snailing) along - I hope to work on it next week when I'm off, but I am not tech savvy at all!
    Thanks for the monochromatic theme PCs too, I was thinking of that as well as similar things (foods, labels, teas, etc., since I still have so much 'trash!' :D)
