Take-A-Look Tuesday

So today it might be obvious, but I want you to take a look at my new blog layout. The new background and header are probably obvious, but some other tweaks:
--new buttons that should have changed without you having to reload them onto your blog - how easy was that, right?!
--I added the Social Media stuff at the bottom of each post - so if you see something that you like and want to send it to a friend, instead of how I used to copy the url and paste it into an email, you can just click on the email or FB button or whatever and share it that way - again, easy, right?!

--I added a top tab called "Flickr Pics" - go there to see the pictures everyone has loaded up to share.  There aren't many now, so I hope lots of you can find time to show off something you've made after being inspired from my blog.  I'll do features occassionally using those pictures.

--I moved my "I've Been Featured" buttons to under the "About Me" tab so head up there to see all the blogs that I've been lucky enough to have gotten a shout-out from.

--I know it was only about 50-50 on whether you as readers would be interested in a Sugar Bee Craft Edition facebook page, but I went ahead and made one for those of you who wanted it.  Don't feel obligated if you use FB for just friends, but if you have a broader FB realm, then I'd love for you to "Like" me over on my sidebar.

--I want to add a section that showcases some of my more popular posts, so look for that to come.

Thanks for all your input on my logo design and various thoughts you've had in general.  I took them all into consideration.

Now, on to see what you've been up to!

Are you having a fun summer??  Crafting right along??
Let's Take-A-Look at what you've been up to:

 - - just a run down- -

  • Link to a Specific Post, not your whole blog (to do this, click on the title of the post you want to link and it will open on it's own page, then copy that url)

  • Please don't link up a post that you've already linked here before

  • Grab my button below - you can post it on your post, on your sidebar, on a page of a list of link-ups, wherever as long as it's somewhere

  • Try to visit a few other people on the list - it's fun to support and encourage fellow craftiness - and everyone LOVES comments
If you're new to link-ups and have questions let me know and I'll do my best to help
