I’m trying to start a new habit, it being the first week of the year and all. I spend a lot of time taking photos, and I’m paranoid about the camera/laptop dying and me not saving Every. Single. Photo I’ve ever taken. I’ve had a Picasa account for a million years, but since they sold it to Google and Google totally wrecked it (why, Google? Why do you take a perfectly good programme and kill it?)so now I’m also dipping my foot in the Flickr pool too.
Each month I empty my camera onto my laptop, make a folder for the month and once a month, upload them onto Picasa. Or Flickr now. Hopefully they’ll all get transferred, and I won’t get confused.
Of course this makes it easy to see new stuff I haven’t blogged about. Which is my long winded way of telling you I have more show and tell.
Not sure if you remember me discussing our group’s Christmas swap? We all had to do a block holder, and I did a lovely pink number (I’ve posted a photo of it below). The above one was one that Mum received (she had been touring overseas and couldn’t collect it herself), and I think it’s just lovely.
And this lovely one above I am lucky enough to call mine. I think the original maker did a fantastic job and I’m already using it.
Just to refresh your memory, this one was the one I designed – all very pink and girly so I do hope a pink and girly person got it. I couldn’t go to the Christmas dinner where they were swapped so didn’t see the recipient’s face. Hope it was a happy surprise for her.
I’ve been told that the whole swap was received excellently well, so that sure is nice to hear.
Anyway. Till tomorrow, my lovelies.
