Getting with the (html) program

I have finally gotten around to making a button for my blog.  I'd been having some difficulty deciding just how, exactly, I wanted the button to look.  Obviously, it needed to have my blog's name on there in some fashion, but I simply could not decide on an image--I knew I wanted something cute and whimsical, which is apparently easier said than done.  Last night I stayed up late (shocker!) and played around with several ideas and came up with this:


Cute?  Check.  Whimsical?  Check.  The winking owl is actually from my collection of vintage children's books (click here to check out the book in its entirety) and I had been desperate to do something with the illustration ever since I scanned it a couple of months ago.  I may tweak it a bit at some point in the future, but I'm pretty happy with what my rudimentary photoshop skills have yielded.  If you're so inclined, you can grab my button from the sidebar or by copying and pasting the html code below:

L to the third




If anyone has any questions about how I, a complete and utter newb, managed to cobble this together, feel free to shoot me an email. While I'm not quite up to the level of actual blog design, I'd love to try my hand at designing some more buttons using my collection of vintage illustrations and I'd be happy to try and make something for you.
