Blog changes

My kids reminded me that it is no longer spring, and that maybe I should give my blog a new look. I actually agreed that I was ready for something new, but how do I do it? I started changing things one at a time, using the same blogger template. And now I have something new, though I don't know if I really like it. I'd love to a have a textured background, but I don't know how to do it. I see people out in blog land do amazing things to their blog, but I don't know a thing about how to do that. But I do have a collection of photos I've taken over the last few years, so I suppose I can change them with the seasons, or when I get tired of a gold background. If anyone knows a of a website or book that can teach me more of what I can do, in a simple way, I'd be thrilled

I figured out today how to do a textured background since you were wondering. I have always wanted a texture too.

Here is the website I found by background on:

And here is the website that tells you how to change your template:

I saved the texture that I wanted onto my desktop, uploaded it to my flickr.com account, and then used the steps in the tips to change my template on blogger.com

If you have questions, I can help you.
