New button -

I spent most of Tuesday trying to make another button for my blog -

A TUIT button -

The one that I talked about on Monday - HERE -

And I was having a heck of time - ;((

EVERY time I make a new button -

And I have made several -

I can NEVER get it right the first time!! - ;((

EVERY time I make notes outlining the steps -

To remind myself how to do it -

Notes on what code goes where -

So that I don't make the same mistakes the next time - ;((

The next time - same thing -

It doesn't work and I make even more notes - ;((

The next time - same thing!! -


Tuesday I kept getting an error message -

"javascript void (0)" - ;((

I even tried to compare my new code -

To the code I used on my UFORIA button -

And wound up somehow messing up THAT button -

Then I messed up the Right-Handed Friend button -

So right about then -

I had HAD it with the dang buttons -

So I asked my tech support (My Other Half) -

To check out my “javascript” stuff -

And work his magic -

While I took my nap - ;))

I wanted to try again later -

But if it didn’t work -

I was going to have to wait until the morning - ;))

Computers are great -

When they do what they are told -

Otherwise they frustrate the heck out of me - ;))

I only have so much patience -

And I would rather spend it UNSEWING - ;))

Anyway -

After my nap I tried again -

And it STILL wouldn’t work -


I thought that I might ask scraphappy at so scrappy for help -

She had just made a button for her new -

Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014 - HERE -

Surely she knows how to do it - ;))

And guess what?? -

She had a new post -

All about How to add a button to your blog - HERE -

And she said that she -

found a nice "Grab my Button" code generator here:


EXACTLY the information that I needed -

An "app" for adding a Grab Button -

Grab My Button Code Generator - HERE -

And SO much easier than futzing with the HTML code - ;))


So I made the button -

And I THINK it works -

But I need somebody to test it for me - ;))

Would somebody please try to copy it -

And add it as a gadget (HTML/JavaScript) to your blog -

To see if I did it correctly? - ;))

It should show up as a button on your blog -

That links back to my blog -

Major emphasis on SHOULD - ;))

THANKS!! - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I wrote all those instructions in my computer notebook just in case ....
If I get around to it, than I will have no excuse for not doing something ... so don't even tempt me!

I may have a round TUiT - but sometimes I don't have the time - or the money - or the energy - or the inclination - or the fabric - or a number of other things - so I still have a bunch of excuses for not doing something - haha - ;))

THX for posting this info. I don't know if I need to make myself a button yet but I know where to look when I do. Took me right to your blog so it works!
