No worries, I knew what you meant, I just wanted to point that out for anyone else that may be reading since I’ve seen this question before.
To do what you’re asking will take some customization to the theme. If you want your site to look like her site then you don’t need to use the home.php template that comes with the theme. There was a link that explains how to add a widget area just like what you’re looking for, but I can’t think of where it was. In the mean time you can give this tutorial a try – http://www.carriedils.com/widget-area-above-header-genesis/ it’s practically the same thing, you’ll just need to reposition it wherever you want…..and to do that you can look at the StudioPress documentation for Genesis that explains hooks and their locations – http://my.studiopress.com/tutorials/
Hope this helps
