I am always amazed at what you are able to find on the internet! I found a site that allows you to add a background to your blog for free. If you would like to do the same, click on the link at the top, left hand corner of my blog. They have tons to choose from!
They also have free blinkees. You can see mine on the right of my blog, above my flickr badge. It says Sit Long Read Much. Which, if you know me at all, is my FAVORITE thing to do.
