I can't say I've been extremely successful. I like the reindeer I had, but the red background was a little abrasive for me. I like the warm, red colors because it makes me feel like I'm snuggled inside on a cold winter day. But I don't care for a lot of the red or warm color designs. So then I think start leaning towards the blues....let's be honest, we all know I like blues. :)
But blues mean chilly, cold and snow. They make me feel cold, even if they accurately reflect the holiday season. :\ So I'm trying out a few in the meantime, seeing if I like them or not. If I don't, I'll find something new.
Where do you all find your backgrounds? I've tried thecutestblogontheblock.com, hotbliggityblog.com, and shabbyblogs.com.
