So a few weeks ago I talked about how I wanted to spruce things up for Autumn because, well, I just don’t have the insert whatever word here to decorate my house. My original plan was to simply update my profile picture isn’t it cute? but that led to me updating my Twitter profile, which carried over to me updating the cover photo on my Facebook page, and ended with me overhauling my blog.  Snowball rolling down hill, anyone? Of course,I now have to change my signature so that it matches the feel of my new blog. sigh

So, I started looking around at different signature creators, rolled my eyes, and thought, why not just create one using PicMonkey? I mean, I looooove PicMonkey. It’s just so easy to use for everything.

So here’s what I did:

  1. Open PicMonkey and go to “Create a Collage”
  2. Select “Layouts”, it’s the 2nd one down, then select “Create Your Own”
  3. Go to “Background”, the last choice, and check “Transparent Background”
  4. Now save your layout as a .png {trust me, it’s there}
  5. Select “Edit”
  6. Go to the “Text” box and choose your font. Go ahead and experiment with the colors and fonts, you want everything to match your theme. I added a butterfly from the “Overlays” as the period behind the “T” in my name because, well, it’s just a bit whimsical
  7. After you’re satisfied with your signature, go to the cropping tool and crop as close to you can to your signature
  8. You may need to resize your signature before you save it, I resized mine to 500×168
  9. You can upload your signature just as you would a photo.
  10. And you’re done!

Random question: were you an American Bandstand fan, Solid Gold dancer wanna be, or did you boogie down the Soul Train line?
