Hi Girls. I am hoping this is not inappropriate or anything to ask, but I am having quite the time here! I have been trying really hard to start my own blog and cannot for the life of my figure out how to make my own header. I found a really cute background imagine on shabbyblogs.com and managed to set that up, but I want to create a header for my page with my title. Everytime I google it for help I can't find any answers that are detailed enough to help me. For example, they will say: first determine the width of your blog layout......well I don't know how to do that! I just want something cute and I feel like I should be able to do this...why is it so hard? I downloaded something called Gimp 2 after someone told me that was a good program to use for free, but I don't have a clue what I am doing. Can any of you digital scrapbooking pros help point me in the right direction or give me any advice? I want to get my blog up and running sooo badly!

Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!

You can find some GIMP tutorials on the Siggy board: Gimp Lessons and Tutorials - JustMommies Message Boards

Where did you get your blog template from? And are you using blogger or wordpress?

If you're using Blogger go to your Dashboard, then Design, click edit on the Header section and in the box that pops up, somewhere there it will tell you the maximum width your header can be. As for making one, you can use Paint to crop a photo and add text to it to make it the size you want for your header or you can use a program like GIMP, Photoshop, or Paint Shop to create an even more customized header. GIMP is a free program. If you don't want to go through all the hassle of making your own you can buy lots of blog design things at digital scrapbooking stores.
