Making your own header with Picasa



I typically use a Photoshop program for graphics and what~not but often I get frustrated and have to call my SIL for help.
But not this time!
Look what I did all on my own and it only took me about 30 minutes to download the program, read the directions and make the header. I love it!
I don't like all the technical mumbo jumbo that goes along with many programs. I simply dont have the extra time to sit and read and read some more to try to figure out how to work the dang thing.
After reading THIS post over at Blissfully Domestic I decided to give Picasa a try. Her tutorial made it so easy to understand and she includes the link to the Picasa download in her post.
If you've always wanted to make your own header but never knew how then be sure to check THIS out.

Your header came out beautiful! I'm a big fan of Picasa, and I like the space they give you to store your creations, too.

That is really professional-looking. What a good eye for design you have!

Thank you for sharing. I need a new header and a blog button. I agree with you some of the technical things are too technical for me too. I will check her out.
Love your blog and I am going to be following along with you. Please stop by Grace and follow along with me too.
