Speechless~~

Just when you think everything's peachy with those nasty gremlins their big ugly uncle comes a'visitin'...

At this point I'm rather speechless with all the image issues we had and I'm sure all of you are even more frustrated and baffled. I do sincerely apologize. Even though these type of things are out of our control we can't help but feel a sense of responsibility for it all.

Today's issue was caused from a server outage with GoDaddy so none of our lovely PrL were showing up, not even my website. ugh! Several headaches later, the issue has been resolved and all is as it should be. (you may need to refresh/delete your browser cookies to see them again)

Sometimes I think about getting out of  theme game, although there aren't alot of problems they sure do wreak havoc when there are... but then I remember how much I love making pretty things. So if the monsters are done now, the faeries and I can get back to work~~

Updated Codes for Free Backgrounds

This is in addition to the previous posts below and is related to the recent glitch that make my Plumrose Lane images go missing.

I've just finished updating all of the free background codes so if you're using one of those backgrounds you can go ahead and replace the code.

Just find the background from the list on this page:  http://plumroselane-bckgrnds.blogspot.com/2010/09/backgrounds.html and click on the background you were using. Then find the size for your blog, copy the code below it, and paste it over the previous background code.

Please feel free to leave comments if you have any questions or need help~

Gone Missing? Here's the Fix~~

It seems the internet gremlins have been up to no-good and many of my lovely Plumrose Lane images have gone missing, humph!!  If you find they're missing from your blog and you installed the images yourself then use the steps below to easily fix them.

If I installed the theme for you, then click my signature at the bottom of this message to send me an email and we'll get things back up for you~

To fix the missing images you will be replacing a single word in some code on your blog. Here's a quick key of where to find the different codes for each image type.

Background
Click on the "Layout" section of your blog then locate the "Html/Java Script" gadget for your background.

Post Divider
Click on the "Template" section of your blog, then click on "Customize". Click on "Advanced", then scroll down to "Add CSS". The code should appear under the "Add custom CSS" area.

Blog Signature
Click on the "Settings" page of your blog. Click "Posts and comments", code will be found in the "Post Template" area, 2nd choice from the top.

Button, Badge, or Tag
Click on the "Layout" section of your blog then locate the "Html/Java Script" gadget for missing button, badge, or tag.

The Fix
Once you find the code to fix the missing image you will simply need to replace the word: "prl-images" with "plumroselane". This word may appear several times within one snippet of code so I recommend using the "Find" feature in your browser to make sure you replaced them all.

Here are quick search links to help you find this tool for the most commonly used browsers:
Chrome
Internet Explorer
Fire Fox
Safari
Opera

Once all of the words have been replaced then click "Ok" or "Save". The missing image should now be back.

What's the Date?


We must check the calendars at least five times a day (probably more). There's always some reason; either a date to circle or a previous day to look back on. Although we're usually prepared with the new year; having added them to our holiday lists, for some reason they slipped our minds this time around. For the past two weeks we've been checking blank spaces where there normally would be days and dates each time muttering how we really should to pick one up.

We're an odd family, we'll go to buy a gift for someone and realize we could have made something lovely and personal. Why is it that we always seem to fall back on our familiar pasts of just buying something instead of making it?  It seems our calendar dilemma was no different but fortunately we made the realization sooner than later.

And so with that we're introducing our new line of 2015 Calendars, the first of which is shown above. Each will feature our unique whimsical style with an inspirational message and will come in 8 1/2 x 11. They'll be available for purchase through our Etsy shop in both print-yourself and pre-printed formats  We're still working on an assortment of new designs but you can find the one above at this link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/218558335/2015-calendar-print-yourself-mermaid-sea

The Cloud

Posted on my favorite go-to art/design source this morning was this incredibly cool creation by designer Richard Clarkson...


Clarkson has created Cloud, "an interactive light shaped like a cumulus cloud that simulates a thunderstorm both in light and sound, based on external input from either a remote control or motion sensors."


Enjoy~

Friday

Face Lifts~

While I may not be a fan of face lifts, I certainly enjoy giving them... at least to some of my older themes, in much need of an updated look.  Joining this group are "A Fondness" and "A Heart for You".



Both don brighter colors with more exquisite elements to help add even more whimsy. You can view them by clicking the titles or images above.

Enjoy~
