Housekeeping... a new logo!

You may have the WOYWW logo and link in your sidebar. If you have, thank you! Regretfully, you now have a picture from Photobucket telling you that hosting of the image has expired. Sorry about that, it's not very pretty and I was hoping to beat them to it. Epic fail!
WOYWWers, Deskers, gentle reader...there is a new WOYW logo!

 My Creative Director (Sissy Stephanie) told me that the original logo was old and out of date in style, so she whipped up a couple of others to choose from! And because things have moved on so far, I don't think it will need a hosting service if you want to add it to your sidebar as a link. First, copy this image to your computer. Or save it...whatever you have to do.
On Blogger, go into the dashboard, select Layout and then select 'Add a Gadget'. It will pop up a menu full of gadgets you can add, so at this point, don't get carried away.Go to 'Image' and click the + sign at right end of the box. This throws up another page into which you type the URL for this blog - www.stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk - and then add the picture. Click the 'shrink to fit ' option box too. It should load and take it's place in your side bar. Don't forget to delete the gadget with the out of date (Photobucket) logo!
Of course, there's no rule that says you have to have the logo on your blog, or indeed if you have the logo, you don't have to make it a link. Whatever works for you. Either way, you have to admire my Creative Director's forwardness in telling me how out of date I am. Again. It reminded me of a one sided discussion about my pearly pink lipstick a few years ago.....

Hi Julia, Thanks for the instructions. Actually worked first time.

My previous logo hadn't got the Photobucket thing yet. Sue

Fab new logo for us, love it. Mine had thrown up that Photobucket thing sometime over the last few weeks. Then I saw Donna's post about it happening to her logo, and Photobucket now wanting a stupid amount of money for hosting. Well done to your Creative Director,lol. Hugs, Shaz xx

Fabulous new logo Julia (that photobucket message on a number of links in my side bar was getting on my nerves so I went through and removed/altered everything on Sunday).

well I love the new logo... I thought I had the old one but it looks like I replaced it with one of Nikki's digi ones... will add this or change it or something. I had seen various people moaning about Photobucket. Love your talented Creative Director's input.

I hate to tell you, Julia, but watercolored logos are so yesterday! Just kidding! Settle down! It is absolutely gorgeous and well done, Sissy! I love the free and floaty feel ~ just like WOYWW itself: free and open to all deskers everywhere to let it all flow out! Hugs, Darnell

Ah, yes, I just checked (have been out of the loop for a while), and mine has indeed turned into the photobucket thingy. I will put my technical hat on later and see if I can fix it. The new logo is very pretty, however I fear it will not match the colours on my blog which just goes to show that my blog "design" is severely out of date :)

Thanks for this, Julia - it's lovely! And a lot more up to date, too. I haven't changed mine for ages, and it was probably really old!
