UGH, Ebay

I have just spent two hours uploading 12 items to sell on Ebay!! But, that's not all the time it took! My friend Di came round to mine yesterday afternoon so that we could take photos of all the items, do all the measurements, write up descriptions, etc etc etc! So that took about 3 hours yesterday, in between fits of giggles and messing about! It is good to use Ebay to get rid of stuff but I hate doing it!! As usual have left it a bit late so hope some of my things sell before Xmas!! I have a couple more items to load up tonight (coz I'd had enough for the moment) so will go make a huuuuge bowl of popcorn, chill out, then upload those two!

Was at my mum's this afternoon and my sister and the gorgeous Lola were there too! Tried to take some photos of her but at 11 months she wouldnt stand still!! Definitely want new photos as she is growing so much and is as lovely and happy and smiley as ever!
Guess who is holding Lola!!

My mum has given me a bunch of wonderfully beautiful old photos of her, my grandad, etc! Tons of them! So I am going to scan all the best ones and add them to my list of Layouts to do! Might have to get help in how to do vintage type layouts as Im sure my usual bright and colourful style wont go with the photos!

Bon Jovi - yeeeaahhhhhh!!

I saw that Bon Jovi is playing in Twickenham on the 28th of June 2008!! I've always wanted to see them and now they are playing 2 miles from me! Wooohooooooooo!! So I bought 2 standing tickets £55 each - blooming Nora!! And they were the cheapest! I dont mind standing, I'm sure the atmosphere will be great plus I will be dancing! Hope I can find someone that will want to come with me!

We started the PSF challenges again - love doing them! Here is the layout I created! Finding really good use for the Richmond photos - still got to create layouts with photos from Honk Kong, Sydney, Wellington, Peru and Las Vegas!! Paper from Diamante - Lori Wiley - Glamorous Midnight Rain Kit, Frame from Manuela Zimmermann Waves of Life Kit. Small photo blocks from Christina Renee - Old Proof Sheets.

Blog Header

Created my blog header! Not totally sure if its ok but cant be bothered to change it right now! Weather is horrendous here today (so what's new!!) and am debating whether to go to a Pilates class or not! Or stay in and organise ACDSee as I am way behind, or create another Walk to Work layout, or be totally lazy and watch a film!
There was a lovely sunset the other day and I'm lucky I face the river from my office window - this is the photo I took of the sunset reflecting on the water!!

My first walk to work Layout!

I was so happy with the photos I took I decided to create a layout with them. Used template and kit from Manu. As you know my layouts are usually so bright and colourful, so this one is totally calm! Loved how it came out so will continue to make some more with all the photos I took! No photos taken today - all its done is rain rain rain! Ugh!!!

Cool!!Next thing I would like to know is how to add my own fonts to the Blog Template and how to add a header and nice paper! So if any of you experts out there can give me any tips, I will be sooo sooo happy!!

Walking to Work

OK, I've got to get to grips with posting in my blog! Totally forgot about it! Anyhow, had to walk to work last Tuesday and its was blooming freezing! It was just before 8am and it was a beautiful morning, frost everywhere and sort of steam and fog coming off the river! As I now carry my little Canon with me everywhere, I took some photos! Froze my hands off!! But was so pleased with the photos!

I might try to do the scrolling display another day! And I forgot, a couple of weeks walking home just before 5, the light was amazing so took photos of the office building (we dont have the whole building, just one floor!) WOW, I'm pretty amazed I have been able to upload these photos!

EHD Woes!!

Well, as you all know, my EHD stopped working on Wednesday night! Aaarrgghhhh!!! It powered up but wasn't being picked up on the laptop! Spent the whole evening trying to sort it whilst chatting to Liv who was so kind and trying to help me even though it was 4am for her! And chatting on MSN/Yahoo with Tori and NanaJeanne too! Anyhow, took it yesterday evening to my hairdresser's brother in law and he very kindly has helped me out. He called me today to say the data is all ok, just something not working with the USB connection but was going to buy something to fix it. So hopefully I get it back tomorrow and I can check everything is there intact! What a scare! Dont want to go through that again! I am so behind on scrapping because of this! Well, thats my excuse and Im sticking to it!!

I think I have figured out how to insert a video, you have to watch this, its fantastic! And that is so like my cat Lucy!!
