Annie, i just discovered you and Girl, you are amazing! N one makes CSS understandable but you manage to :)
I've retired my yummy PSYCHO template because I can't use it with new Blogger and it's impossible to change. So, I learning to design my own and finding your BlogU so great. I have a couple of questions for you, if you have time, before I get started tweaking my template.
1) How did you make your category cloud one big space above the two sidebars?:)
Use a Widebar to hold your category cloud! And while you're at it, set your sidebars apart with a different background color.
2) Could I create background images for the sidebars? Or how would I make them a different color than the main part?
I hope you can answer these, but if not, I totally understand you're flooded with "help me" emails.

type="color" default="#fff" value="#eeeeee">
Second, put the above code in the
/* Variable definitionsarea of your template.
Third, to your #sidebar-wrapper add this code:
background:$sidebarbgcolor;That will change the color of the sidebar.
