I'm busy with orders for graduation cards; so far I have come up with three different designs. Two are new this year, and the other is one that I designed last year and since it's a money holder is was pretty popular.
The second card I'm especially proud of because I drew the cap and tassel and cut them out freehand. And I'm not good at that at all! I love the simplicity of this card - notice the message begins on the front of the card and continues on the inside. I ran this note book paper through my printer and I would have loved it if all of the printing was right on the line, but that wasn't working for me at all! The font I used is Ali Edwards everyday writing - I downloaded it from the Creating Keepsakes website for free!
Sorry for the lack of posts lately; life has been busy. When you work full time you really look forward to lazy, relaxing weekends - at least I do. However, they seems to be few and far between. Week after week I look at my planner and think the weekend looks pretty open, and then one thing at a time gets written down and pretty soon my whole weekend is booked. This past weekend was no exception.
I did make time for crafting though, mostly because I had deadlines to meet! Here are a few of the things I was working on.
The other day I mentioned that I spent hours (at least it seemed like hours) editing photos, uploading them to Scrapbookpictures.com and ordering prints. Ali Edwards (love her!) mentioned this website and I wanted to give it a try. I placed the order on Sunday . . . today is Wednesday and my photos arrived in the mail.
I still don't have a computer, but tomorrow is the day I get it back. I'm cautiously optomistic as I have heard that before. Fingers are crossed. I have been informed that we lost everything that was on the computer, silly things like pictures and all of my Etsy documentation. You heard me right, all of it. I guess doing a back up of your hard drive is the way to go, huh? I will be adding that to my list of things to do.
In the meantime I thought I would update you on my niece that was in a terrible car accident 5 weeks ago today. You can read about it here. I am thrilled to announce that she is going home tomorrow and is expected to make a full recovery. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers . . . they worked!
With any luck I will have an actual blog post with crafty news over the weekend. I have photos to take, things to list and stories to tell.
I have nothing to report on the computer front . . . the fact that I don't have it back yet makes me very nervous. Nervous enough that I'm busy thinking about what I will do if I have to buy a new computer.
I have been thinking for a while that I would really like a laptop, but I was thinking more of in addition to, not in place of. Now I'm wondering, could I survive with "just" a laptop?
If I do decide to buy a laptop I'd really like to get a Mac. I haven't had an Apple since the Apple IIE, which was approximately one million years ago. However, I keep hearing great things about them, and my daughter loves hers.
Since I can't do any regular posting right now without my computer I'd like to turn things over to you. Any thoughts? Laptop or desktop? PC or Mac? I'd love to hear from you.
Please stand by . . . we are experiencing technical difficulties. Ugh. Over the weekend our computer crashed - I'm not saying who did what but I can tell you I was 3 hours away so it wasn't me!!
I hope to be back up and running in a few days, although I may have lost everything. I know.
