Hi! Newbie here wave I just wondered who else was writing about handmade and crafty stuff - I'd love to have a nosey and also subtly convince you to take a peek at mine too wink
I'm still learning the ropes - when to post, how often, how to use wordpress etc. All advice gratefully recieved!

VCo99 Fri 28-Jun-13 21:32:23 blog is meant to be crafty, but at the moment I'm not actually doing very much (despite my best intentions) so I'm not whether I should post or not..I perhaps need to stop blogging and start doing! Anyway, maybe check my blog out after the weekend, when i should have started crafting! Rascal and Roses

I've had a nosey at your blogs and they're lovely smile I've tried to leave comments on some of them. craftsonsea your blog really doesn't like me!!

Mine is here

I have to confess to not knowing what I am doing at all!

overmydeadbody Fri 07-Jun-13 07:15:20

There is a little box to tick that says something like converts link automatically. Enjoyed looking at all your blogs. I should leave comments - thinks belatedly! Happy 40th old policehouse. Mine is approaching.

how do you write a link so it goes to it when you click it......having a sleep deprived brain not able to work it out moment! Thank you and am loving reading your blogs x

oldpolicehouse Wed 05-Jun-13 11:08:55

And my blog was started to be a sewing and making blog but I seem to have run out of time....must do more making and less hoovering!

oldpolicehouse Wed 05-Jun-13 11:07:37

This looks like a fun share and way to waste even more time reading fab blogs! Tried to comment on your blog costumequeen but wouldn't let me, maybe because I don't have a wordpress blog. I'm not sure but anyway thank you for the hat pattern link exactly what I was looking for xx

Hello there polished button

My blog is about making things yourself. There is a bit of sewing (mainly clothes for the kids), some gardening, some cooking, some DIY and general family life stuff. I love finding new crafty UK blogs.

Good luck with yours

Nice Blog indeed. But make sure your blog's custom logo design should be look very good as it can grab your reader's attention.

gingerlillytea Fri 11-Jan-13 22:34:03

Thanks costumequeen x

lovely blog - your button picture looks great!
The etsy badge was fairly simple in wordpress - I found the image by doing a google search, and added it to the home page with a clickable link using the web address. Not sure how it works in blogger though? (It's a text box widget on wp) smile

carovioletfizz Wed 26-Dec-12 21:17:28

ps How did you get the Etsy button on your site - I want one!

carovioletfizz Wed 26-Dec-12 21:16:31

Here is mine! Yours is lovely - I love the look of that granny chic book too!

costumequeen Wed 26-Dec-12 19:21:20

Thanks craftsonsea! I'm findinf wordpress ok so far - the app took a while to figure out and I can't figure out why the header looks different on the mobile site, but I'm slowly getting my head round it smile I think I have read your blog in the past, but I'm off for another nosey now grin hope you've had a lovely christmas!

Craftsonsea Mon 24-Dec-12 13:34:25

Hello Costumequeen, your blog is beautiful, you are doing marvelously well with wordpress! (it's fun isn't it?!?) Mine is Craftsonsea which is sewing, handmade and a bit of cooking if you fancy a look x
