The previous post was very helpful to me - thank you!
I've since been able to adjust my blog to 3 columns, change the appearance to my sewing lady and add new sign-age, make a NEW button with html code so YOU can add my button to your blog - go on, have me over for a visit!
I'm feeling a lot better about the look of my blog.
A few more things I'd like to fix:
Spacing between sidebar content
Remove extra space above header
Remove info before postings
Add a 'spacer' image on sidebar content
Change up my signature
Add a bit of color/texture on the side of my blog
That's all I can think of for now, but there is LIGHT!!!
