snipping tool on Windows 7

alternatively titled: We're BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!

i knew this would happen. i just knew it. i would start blog design and then totally neglect the tutorial part of it. i have been thinking all dang week for a tutorial to do, (so if you want me to do one, i'm not an expert or anything, but leave a comment or email me!) and so i am just going to share how to use the Snipping Tool on Windows 7. I'm not sure if this works on windows xp or any mac stuff, so sorry. you can try it, but no promises. ;-)

so the tool is used to "cut" stuff from the page and you can save it to your desktop and then upload it to blogger, FB, etc. EXAMPLE:
(i use this a lot with giveaway winners.)
so y'all want to know how to do it?
ok, let's get started kids!

so here is my page that i am going to "take" something from. (this is just a screen shot, don't freak out.)
if you're using, you'll need to pick your number first.
Now, click this button on your keyboard:
mines in black and white, but i dont know about yours.
Then, on the menu that *should* pop up, click the "Snipping tool" button thingy. then, it should make your screen white-ish, like this. Then, just "crop" the place that you want and a new box should pop up. then just save the picture as a JPG to your computer and do whatever you want with it!
well, bifornow!

so. hi there.
I have been getting requests for blog designing and it is so fun and awesome! srsly. I want to make it easier... easier for you and me. i will be making premades. your design can be the exact replica of a premade, inspired by the premade, or have nothing to do with any premades. just make sure to mention in your email if you have your eye on one of these.
(and also, i will be making more, so don't you fret if you dont see one tha makes you go OHMIGOSHIWANTTHATPREMADENOW.)
