Logo! Blog Header! Blog Button!

While I have been lazing around the pool and barely lifting a finger except to summon my next cocktail*, my very favourite nerdy friend Donna has been slaving over her laptop making things for me.

Here is the awesome new Sew It Together logo:

If you click out of your Bloglines or Google Reader, you can see the gorgeous new blog header to match.

But wait, there’s more!

A blog button that you can add to your blog to tell everyone that you are going to Sew It Together!

Now although I figured out the ‘code’ for this (yay non-nerdy me!) I am struggling with creating a box on the right hand side for you to grab your own code. In WordPress, figuring this out is akin to discovering the Fundamental Theorem to Integral Calculus and it’s a long time since I studied mathematics. I haven’t given up, but I don’t want you waiting for me either.

I think the easiest way to give you the code is for you to leave a comment below and I will reply by return email with the code.

As you can see, the colour theme for this year’s event is red and aqua. That doesn’t mean that you have to come dressed in red and aqua (oh wouldn’t that be a sight), it just means that any, say, paraphenalia for this year’s event will be themed these colours, and then we’ll change colours for next year’s event in Sydney. Cool, huh?

A huge thank you to Donna, who next week will be found perched on the sun lounge beside me. I’m not sure who’s fetching the cocktails. Perhaps the husbands?

* And if you believe that, well, you have to be kidding. With a 1 year old and the 4 year old, holidays just aren’t what they used to be. I would ask you at what age they will let me lie on the sunlounge all day, but I fear the overwhelming answer will be shouted back at me. “NEVER”. So I’m not asking.

Edited to add:  I am trying to add the code here for you,  since it seems to be losing something in the email process.

Okay! See that gap after the ‘a’? It seems to disappear when you copy the code, which is a good thing.

Also, if you blog with WordPress, then you will need to add a space after the last ” and before the / that follows it.

BUT! This is not working for me when I copy it over. I am sorry. I really suck at this, but I will keep trying!
