Playing With Blog

The girls have been sick, so we have had lots of time for "sitting." On the meantime, I keep playing around with the blog. I am trying to figure out how to use Gimp, or what are good pictures that represent what this blog is about.

What do you use for your blog?

Do you know of anyone that does blog templates (and is affordable?)

It has been fun, but I have yet to find something that I love. Any suggestions are welcome!
