New FREE blog backgrounds + Just Me and My Little Life

Hey everyone! Listen up! I just posted a new batch of FREE blog backgrounds to "I Love it!" Blog Designs! This week's theme is ..... pink!

Here are my three personal faves out of the series:


Chandelier Chic
She's Stunning
You'll make my day if you drop by and leave a comment letting me know if you like them. :D

As for me and my little life...

I've been sick! Yuck. I detest being ill. I had a head cold and sniffles and the beginnings of a sore throat... which I quickly doctored by gargling Listerine (uggggh, I hate the stuff!) ... so thankfully my throat escaped without much trouble. I'm afraid I used up almost a whole box of tissues blowing my nose, though!

The worst part about it was that it hit me just a couple of days before we were supposed to attend the graduation party of a very good friend of ours, and I was so worried that I would miss the Ultimate Frisbee game! Blessedly, I was able to play anyway... I just made myself walk instead of run! :) We had a wonderful time at the get-together and it was so inspiring to hear the speech given by the graduate's dad, about how proud he was of his son.

The best part about being sick was that I could still design blog backgrounds. My mind and creativity were unshackled, despite my body being under the weather! I made tons of blog backgrounds and have as many ready to go as are currently on the blog! :D

And today we started the week by going down the hill and picking the ripe muscadine grapes growing on our property. Unfortunately, there are a lot less than last year, we think due to the extreme drought. There are some, though, and I am determined to harvest as many as possible so we can make our delicious grape jelly! :)

Well, I hope you all have a lovely week... and don't forget, there's still time to enter my giveaway! (see the post below!)


  1. Julia, I am going to make over my blog soon and I plan to use your design :D


  2. Hi Sarah! Really? Yay! That's so exciting! :D Which background do you think you'll pick? I have a bunch ready to release later this week too... so you might want to wait a little and see them. I have a whole Vintage series coming out inspired by Jane Austen. :D

  3. I am glad that you are feeling well! Lovely blog designs!

    In Christ,

  4. Shannon,
    Me too! :D Thanks... I have so much fun designing them! :)

    I hope you feel better soon. Being sick is no fun. :-(

    So let me make sure I get this straight. When I post about the giveaway, I need to comment five times on your post?

    Oh, And sorry for the delay on following "I love it!" blog designs. It wasn't popping up for some reason... :-)
