My DIY gallery and a blogiversary
After five years of blogging, I finally broke down and made a DIY Gallery. It was a ton of work but not impossible to do. It's worse if you wait five years.
I made a DIY thumbnail photo gallery tutorial if you want to give it a try, complete with screen shots, code and so forth.
Thanks to Laura at Laura's Crafty Life for the html code to get me started and to Erica at Caught on a Whim for a gallery layout inspiration and for pointing me to Laura.
It's all there in a gallery now, five years of projects, no matter how poorly executed or badly photographed.
By the way, does it feel like everybody's blogs got incredibly beautiful and professional all of a sudden? I'm still in awkward blog puberty but it was worse in 6th grade . . . I mean in 2011. I think I've come so far and then you see somebody else's fabulousness. But then again, their parents probably did that science fair project for them . . . I mean, they probably paid a nice professional for a solid design.
Thank you to my loyal readers for sticking with me. All 10 of you.
