OK, so I didn't pay attention. :) We will follow. I have had a wordpress account for a long time but was unsure about moving. Do you find it as simple as blogger?

Jodi said...

That is totally GREAT!!!! I can't wait to share this with my cousins 8 & 11. Cheers!

SCCCC, after using Blogger for a while the publishing process has taught me a lot. I'm not any good at HTML so I need a host site that can offer me easy to use options. Once you get used to Wordpress, it is easier, WP gives you the option to write your post in full screen and I feel it offers a better choice of templates. I also really like the control of picture size you have with wordpress. I have to learn the size differences still b/c I think I'm making them too big at WP but I'll get it with experience. So if I were you, I'd play around with WP, it just comes down to what you find important and how you want to organize your blog. Sorry for the longwinded answer.

Your answer is great. I understand about the picture size. I'd like to learn to do more with mine. My pictures always look ick on blogger unless you click them. They are all high quality but you'd never know it looking at them in the smaller size. I will watch you, and fiddle with it every now and then. You never know, I may find the courage to make the jump through your experiences. :)

Great post! I didn't realize that you could dye the flowers. Neat. :)

Yes, we will follow you if you move the blog.

Sherry said...

Of course, I'll follow if you move!!!

Love the paperweight!
I follow a few other wordpress blogs. I would follow you:)
I'm frustrated with how long blogger takes to up load a photo!

Jane said...

yes, I'll follow! Love the large pics.

Erin said...

Really pretty! We've just started noticing Queen Anne's Lace on our nightly walks. Perhaps we'll try our hand at this pretty paper weight.

slim pickins said...

Yes! Of course! (wasn't paying proper attention, and left a longer comment at faunarain...)

Lisa! I couldn't do without my daily dose of orange potatoes... I'd follow you to the ends of the earth! That new banner is STUNNING! So sunny. The only thing I find troubling with wordpress is that it takes longer to upload someone's blog for me, but I am on an apple, perhaps thats why, but it wouldn't deter me from reading your blog every day, I have many WP blogs I follow. If it's easier for you, I'd go for the move.
Blessings and magic.

I love your blog and the things that you and the ladies come up with. I would follow you if your moved! Love the new site expect the title was hard to see on the black shoe but that is an easy fix. Thanks for posting!

I'm leaving comments everywhere this morning...:)

I love the new, bright, gorgeous WP blog!!!! You have really got me thinking now ~ I'll have to pop on over to WP and see what they offer:)

Yes, yes, mark me down as follower!

I would follow you to the ends of the blogosphere, my friend! {Even though I've been a bit absent lately}. I like Wordpress even though I don't utilize it to its fullest capacity. And, Faunarain looks lovely. Every time I see Queen Anne's lace I think of you. It makes me smile that you continue to work with her. Been thinking of you and your DH's job situation. Would love an update if you feel like sharing (inannamama at gmail dot com).

Pink & Green Mama said...

I like both of your blogs, do what you love. i love the paper weights and of course i'll follow you wherever you go...you had me at macaroni rainbows, you're stuck with me for the long haul my dear. : )

dongdong said...

of course we will follow. :) The picture really is much larger.

Katherine said...

I love your blog, I will cheerfully update my google reader list wherever you happen to move it. And I love the idea of decoupaging flowers onto rocks too! I made your lavender wand a few days ago, and that was a lot of fun too.
