fancy frills and graphics, my opinion

                         

I'm using this fancy little snowman thingie because RobinNGabster was nice enough to send it to me.  But I don't normally use these things for this reason:  I don't do frills.  I'm plain vanilla, and what you see is what you get.

I prefer to use photographs and words, because those tell you something about the real me.  Fancy graphics have nothing to do with who I am.

But Robin, I do appreciate the gifts in my e-mail.  That's why I used this one.

Here's the type of graphic I enjoy:

My grandpuppy, Dixie.  Closeup and personal.

If I come and visit you Mosie, can I play with all the dogs?  BTW....that is a LOT to be said for "vanilla."     Anne

I did notice the dog but what I noticed more was the clean floor.  We use to have two great danes and they had to go through the kitchen to go out so it never stayed clean for long.  I miss my puppies.  :(

ROFL@clean floor.  I know you had to laugh at this mom, since your floor is as clean as mine, I'm sure!

You do just fine with or without "graphics".. i use them but then I am the one that generally makes the animation to them.. so it's part of me too...

I kind of tend to use my own graphics too, all though occasionally I find something as a header that just fits how I am feeling (like the Grinch...lol)

First time visitor. Love your puppy. I think the graphics are cute and decorative, but I don't like using them myself. Now, if I could make my own and add them as illumination of type, like in the old days of early manuscript, now that I would like to play with. I want the focus to be on the words, and the message of the words. Also, I enjoyed your snow pictures. So jealous that here in the middle of NC, all we got was rain! I enjoyed your journal.
