  1. Lori,
    You have an amazing blog! I have picked up so many great ideas. I got “hooked” at the first grade conference in Austin, Texas! What template are you using…I put the countdown on my blog and it doesn’t fit. Any suggestions?

  2. I use the minima template on blogger, but I found a site that gives the code for a 3 column minima template.

    With the countdown clock, when you paste the code look for the height and width measurements, all you need to do is change those to fit your template. I always have to make my dimensions smaller than its original design. Try that and let me know if it works. The great thing about working more with the html codes is you start to figure out how to customize things.
    If you want a new cutesy template, visit
