Wanna spruce up your blog? I was playing around with some fonts & patterns and thought it would be fun to post some new goodies for everyone. I hope you like them!

Just copy and paste the codes inside the widget or gadget that the button corresponds with.

      Thanks so much everybody!

      I may release these in .PSD and .XCF format for those who would like to change them, like make them wider, etc. I have some projects to work on over the weekend though. Didn't get a chance to add them to my own blog, lol!!

      Thank you! These were very easy to use. I used the 6th set down, and the About Me button has the wrong number in the code. I changed the 8 to a 5 like the rest of the set and it was good to go. Thought you might want to know.

      Thanks again!

      A) Thank you so much for sharing these!
      B) I'm a total noob just getting my blog set up and I am not getting this… Where do I post the code? Thank you for any help!! ( just in case it helps to look at it? I don't know how these things work)

    19. Susan Smith February 15, 2012 8:13 am

      @Aileen Just put them in the top of your gadget. You may have to combine your gadget code together for some of them since the styling in your blog puts a box shadow behind each gadget.

      For the Google Friend Connect you may have to add it manually to an html gadget and then grab the code from

      So say for the "followers" button you would use one html gadget and paste in the GFC code and the shop, tweets and facebook all in the same one. Does that make sense?

    20. Aileen February 15, 2012 6:10 pm

      Woah. I actually did it. I'm impressed with myself. Haha. Thank you so much! That was super helpful!!

    21. Susan Smith February 15, 2012 6:22 pm

      @Aileen Oh yay! Glad what I said made sense. 🙂 Happy blogging!

    22. Aileen Cutz March 8, 2012 4:49 am

      So now that google friend connect has disappeared from my page, what's the next best option for "followers?"

    23. Susan Smith March 8, 2012 5:01 am

      Aileen Cutz Since your blog is a blogger blog, you can still add the followers gadget from your admin. The page redirects to a page requesting that people start using G+. I have heard that they are going to phase out the GFC gadget completely, but have not read an "official" post about that part. The only thing official that I have read is that GFC is no longer available for non blogger blogs.

    24. Aileen Cutz March 8, 2012 5:53 am

      Hmmm. I see. What a bother. You are so wise. A wealth of information! 🙂

      Thank you!
