Her blog is amazing! When she first started her blog she came to me for some blog designing tips and now she's a pro! Her blog is ultra chic, and she one fab writer. I love reading her posts and she gots plenty of followers to prove it's not just me. Go check her out!

Our next spotlight goes out to Short Southern Momma I first off love her tagline: "Just trying to make it through the day with good hair, a smile..and a little sass on the side." She has tons of home decor ideas, fun stories, and awesome giveaways.

Forecast: Cloudy

Label Cloudy that is. You're probably thinking just what the heck is a label cloud?? Well let me help you out here:
A Label Cloud is a group of labels in a cloud-like form.

Adding a Label Cloud is very simple now that Blogger has added a SPECIAL feature to the Labels Gadget.

First make sure you add Labels to your post, which when creating a new post, down in the bottom right corner you will see LABELS with an empty box to write in. Choose descriptions for that post and add there to make a LABEL.

Go to Layout tab of your blog.

Click Add a Gadget

Choose Labels gadget.

Configure Labels box will pop up.

Now in the Display section change List to a Cloud, click on the cloud option.
If you're having trouble visit for a more detailed look.
