I have had so (SO!) many requests for wider blog templates. It's one of those things that I've been "meaning to get around to" for months. My excuse has been that I like to "test run" each of my backgrounds on my own personal blog before I post them here. And my blog is normal width. But I will figure out how to make the wider backgrounds and be posting those soon. Promise! If I don't get to it in a month or so, bug me. Nag. Whatever it takes. :)
About Cristi's Creations
I am a thirtysomething wife and work at home mom of an enthusiastic, wonderful two year old son and a beautiful baby boy. You could also say I'm a bit of a "creative junkie." My biggest creative outlet is that of photographer. However, I am also a blog nut. After months of searching the web, trying to find cute and unique blog backgrounds (and ones that wouldn't erase any of my sidebar elements), I finally figured out how to create them myself. I wanted to "share the love." So, during the Christmas season, I decided to make this little website so that my friends and family could also use the backgrounds that I had made. It's sort of just spread from there. I love doing it! (It's always nice to have another creative outlet and way to give service.) It's totally free - no strings attached. Seriously! If you do decide to use any of them, I'd love for you to comment about what you think! (Commenting helps me know what the general public prefers and which directions to take my future creations.) Thanks! Loves! Cristi :)

Here are those festive 4th of July backgrounds that were promised earlier! There may be more coming in the following weeks too. Just depends on the amount of time that I have. I can not BELIEVE that it's almost July! WOW! Hope you enjoy!
... okay, so I just went into the "new post" link in the top right and then clicked on the "design" tab in the top left and from there it took me to the good ol' trusty page I'm familiar with and used to. Phew! Now I'll have to update my instructions, though. Anyway ... will get to work posting the new bg's now! :)

Yikes! I just created some new blog backgrounds, but I went in to try and change mine on my personal blog and all of the blogger controls and settings are different! I have NO idea how to change it now! Hmph. Guess I'll have to figure it out and then update all my instructions!
Sorry - was going to post the new backgrounds tonight, (there are some really cute 4th of July bg's I created!) but have to get this figured out first. Dang technology - just keeps changing on me. I'm getting too old for this :)
Stay tuned ...
