I made our own buttons (so we didn't have to buy any), and then just followed the directions in the video. Voila!
I also have been working this week to figure out instagram and twitter (Rachel and Emilee are way ahead of me here...I'm a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to social media). I posted my first Instagram, explored the pinstrosity and pinstrosityworthy hashtags on twitter, and even went in and resurrected our Pinterest account. We've had these social media connections for a while, but we haven't been using them which really is kinda silly. So go check them out, follow us, and we'll do better about keeping up with them!
The second change you may or may not have noticed is our updated "author profiles". Now that we have Rachel on our team (still so excited about that!), we needed her picture and info up. So, also on the right sidebar, you can find a vertical collage of the three of us. You can also find updated profiles on our "The Pinstrositeers" page.
Taking new headshots was an adventure (one we wish we could have done with Rachel, but that'll have to be saved for another time). We planned on taking pictures outdoors. We've had such beautiful weather here lately, it was going to be perfect. Well that day it was rainy (which is wonderful! We're not complaining!) and cloudy and gloomy. So we were stuck indoors, which really kinda threw us for a loop. We didn't know what to do. So what do we do when we don't know what to do? We end up just kinda goofing around. Here are some of our photo "bloopers".

|Spinny chairs are the best.|
|Emilee thought I was just goofing around...until I told her that seriously is are far as I can go toward touching my toes.|
Come back tomorrow for the next installment of Rachel's Sunday Surprise post.
And don't forget about our Use It Up Challenge!
