F2: Friday's Feast Banner Request

Welcome again to Friday's Feast. Today I'll be talking about having a banner and asking for some suggestions. If you don't know what Friday's Feast is all about, please read the Friday's Feast page for a more detailed explanation. If you want to join in on the feast, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution.

Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:

Many of you are familiar with my badge on the right of my page. When I originally came up with the badge design, I was hoping to have something that really looked like food. I also pondered with the idea of having a frying pan with food shaped like F2. Unfortunately I have the skillZ, but do not have the toolZ to create the one I wanted. Because of this, I wound up creating the badge in Power Point (Not really a graphic design program) so that I could have something.

What I am thinking of is having a banner that is placed after each post. So… I am calling on anybody who wants to help me out to let me know. I have some ideas, but would be willing to give you full creative rights to the banner. I would then give you credit in a separate post and allow people to use the banner if they choose. So, if you or anybody you know is willing to help create a banner which will be shown at the bottom of Friday's Feast posts— be sure to email me at cca dot johnson at gmail dot com and let me know. I am going to be on vacation next week, so if you do not hear back from me right away— that is most likely the reason. Also, if you are like me and have ideas but lack either the skillZ or toolZ, just leave a comment so I can try and incorporate your ideas in the banner design.

Finally… no need to worry about next weeks Friday's Feast— I already have one lined up so that you won't miss a thing and go hungry.

Are you looking for a tool to create the banner (as in html code)? Or just the image itself? My dh made me a spreadsheet tool that creates the html code and the text box code for people to snag the button. If that's what you mean let me know I can pass it to you.

I forgot to say a good program that's free :) to add text and alter effects of pictures is It's where I make all my stuff. You do need a picture first though to work with (you could even take a picture of a wall or something just to have a basic plain image). For some great (and highly addictive) pictures you can go to and search for anything and everything. The pictures if you use them do have a cost but I believe it is pretty minimal, a few dollars usually.

I don't have anything on my pc to create said banner with, or I'd have been working on one, as we've talked about your idea. Hmmm ... I wonder if I still have the disk to my printer, it had some funky piccie stuff on it ...

I'm off ... blessings!
