Anything For a Friend...

I got an email.

Well actually, let me start from the beginning. While reading Stephanie's blog (who is hosting a Silver Bella swap which I missed out on somehow), she politely wrote in one of her recent blog posts:

"My Bella friend Jodie is so computer savvy, maybe she could 'whip out' a swap button for the ladies participating in my swap."

Moi? Geez Steph, I wouldn't go that far...I'm just a regular blogger, I'm nothing like those talented people out there, not even close.

But suddenly my head started to swell, my broad shoulders reared back and I thought I could handle this, it is on!

This is the deal...

Number one ~ I'm bummed that I missed out on the sign up of her swap. I must have been EATING at 12 noon!

Number two ~ I am SO not computer savvy...I just fake it.

Number three ~ I could NEVER tell my Bella friend "no" for anything or for any reason (within the legal limit ;)

Sooo, I clicked on my trusty old Photoshop icon and started playing working away. After much sweat and tears (thank goodness no blood) because this is a BELLA project, I knew I had to give it my ALL!  This button will be present on some of the most talented blogs in blogland...oh the pressure!

To make a long story short,

20 minutes later, this is what I 'whipped out'...


I got another email.

Stephanie LOVED it! She's happy, I'm happy.

So if anyone is reading this and you have signed up for Stephanie's Silver Bella Sassy Bella Stash Swap, (whew, say that fast!) please feel free to add this button to your side bar.

If you did, I'd be one honored computer savvy swollen headed, {but regular} blogger! tee hee

Sorry I completely screwed up that comment! What I MEANT to say was, if you could whip that great looking button up in nothing flat like that, you have to have SOME computer saviness!

I agree with the Lou Cinda, I can barely turn my computer on, and here you are creating lovely buttons with yours. OK now I really do worship you.

How nice! I don't think that the other swaps have buttons, you might be starting a trend! Its a good idea.
