How to add a button or banner in your sidebar

For those of you who want to add a banner or a button for something (like a challenge site or a blog party button) I've written some quick instructions below:

Save the button/banner as an image somewhere on your hard drive where you know where it is.

Then in your blogspot admin:
Go to Layout, then Page Elements.
Click on ‘add a gadget’ in your sidebar area.
Scroll down the list in the little window that opens and find 'picture'.
Click that and then in the configure window choose the browse button and find the button you saved. Then above that, under 'Link' paste in the blog / website address.
And then choose Save.
That should be it.

Hi, Christy! Thank you for visiting my blog, Gaal Creative, and asking me for more details about my Derwent Inktense Pencils. I haven't used regular watercolor pencils before. But, I was able to borrow some and I'm going to do an experiment so I can compare them to the Derwent Inktense pencils. I'll be posting the results on Friday, Jan. 16th, 2009. Hope you'll stop by to see the results! :-)
