  7. PS- can you tell me how you got the round pinterest pin option? I am not super techy, so I found a tutorial that gave me the square button in the corner, but I'd love to have the set up like you do? Also, can you recommend someone for helping with a watermark? I used to have one a long time ago, but it doesn't work anymore. I contacted the gal who made it for a update but she never got back to me. THANKS!
