I'm sure everyone is amazed to see I'm on WordPress - in fact, I've already moved my Techniques blog over, and am in the process of moving 1stFloorFlat as well. still here!

Why? Two reasons: the first is Blogger's continuing security issues and constant tinkering with their templates (some of my images now won't open up larger) and the second is that WordPress supports downloadable pdfs - so I hope to have some downloadable projects for you soon.

Meantime, I've been busy: a brand new blog background which will also work on WordPress blogs (I've tried it on the Bueno template) as well as Blogger blogs, including the new templates.

May I present STEAMPUNK...


You'll see it full sized as the background on my Computery blog, and also find the freebie download links and codes on Blogology, as always. The set includes two sizes of header plus a 'Thanks for visiting' button to go in your footer section (it's big).

Thanks for visiting button

Isn't this fun? And all thanks to Cecilia Swatton, who's got a massive new downloadable Steampunk image collection available:

Download from DigiScrap

Cecilia has kindly given me special permission to make these freebies for you!


Library - not just for Halloween

Here is my Halloween version of my Library background set (by popular request). Not too scary... for those of a nervous disposition who still want to join in the fun! Redolent of a Gentleman's Smoking Room, this is a little Steampunk-ish in itself.

Again, go to Blogology to get the download codes and installation instructions.


Finally, don't forget to visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other Pink Saturday posts.


  1. So it sounds like you were able to MOVE your blog, rather than having to start a new one? If so, was it difficult to do and did you have to know all the html lingo?

    Hey sweet lady....I would follow you anywhere. Thanks for all that you have done for moi in the past and I look forward to being better equipped to play at this blogging business at your new address.
    If you get a minute come check out what the grands and I have done for a Halloween adventure. XXOO The Olde Bagg

  3. I love your new background!! I've seen many bloggers move over to wordpress...and always wondered if it was easier to work with!! Are you able to move your whole blog or do you have to start over from scratch?

  4. Got you - now to look at that gorgeous Steampunk background.

  5. Hello, Sweet Lady..this background is adorable..

    While I love some of the new stuff from Blogger, I hate that, part of the time, it doesn't work right. Why can't they make it work??
    Next, just the mere THOUGHT of moving my blog brings on cold sweats, nightmares and abundant amounts of tears. Scares me flat to death. I am still surprised each morning when I turn my computer on..and I've done it right. :)))

  6. Geezum you get skinny change to woordpress and go all seam pinky. Yeah errors it's like being on the autobahn here can't back up on iPhone to correct.

  7. Goodness, this post is virtually in a foreign language... if I hadn't recognised your name... Well, posting on iPhone explains it all - sounds like you don't have your computer set up yet. I'm so glad you've managed the move though.

    Hi Susie,

    I love that Steampunk background and the Library too. I can't wait to get going at Wordpress. I'm thinking it will be much simpler to add all of my images and photos to my sidebars and footers seperately since I'm kind of rearranging how that will look with the new template...

    So before we import my posts over there I'll go in and delete all of my sidebar stuff at Blogger.
    I'm so excited to see you've moved so much already. I'm next! :0)

    Talk to ya soon,
