Just a Little Patience (free fill transfer links)

Facepalm

OMG!!!!! I can’t… I just can’t! I know we all gotta start somewhere and we aren’t all naturally techy, but when people can’t even operate their email… (Me seething with impatience.) I just wasted and hour and 30 minutes of my life trying to walk a client through “reply to my email with your menu file”. “Slow down. Follow my …

Thinking About Creating Books

The ones I’m often drawn to in shops are the How-Tos: • How to be happy • Ideas for creating • Conversational sparks • Tips for success Why not create my own? Why not indeed. I could sell them on Lulu, use them as incentives (not that I really crave the idea of subscribers), give them as gifts… Why shouldn’t …

I Made a Letter Tray

I felt like creating, but not being too artsy. I also wanted to make use of some of the art materials I have stashed in the studio. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately. I don’t allow myself to by more. I must begin using more. What will become of it all when I’m gone? Why did I carry …

Look What I Have Cleaned!!

My studio. :)) For a long time I wouldn’t even call it that because clearly it was not. There was no room for work, let alone finding materials. It had become a dumping ground. I’m going to have to work very hard at not letting that happen again (it will). I changed the position of the table from against long …

It’s just shorthand for an idea. If I’m wrong about the idea I’m …

I Want to Be More Artist-y

Totally scored today.  I didn’t even know there was a book that came out after the 5 behemoths I’d devoured from her Highlander series. Scored a hardcover edition of Diana Gabaldon’s “Written In My Own Heart’s Blood” for only $2 at the hospital today. mmmmmmm… brain candy. Waiting… In 35 minutes I’ll saunter back to the chemo ward for treatment. …

Instagram Fom Laptop

Learned something new today… posting on Instagram via computer. Well, that’s not very intuitive. 1.) go to Instagram with Chrome browser 2.) open developer’s view 3.) hit mobile icon 4.) upload images and… get your descriptions and hash tags ready.

Woo-hoo! I’m Done!

You know the old story – The shoemaker’s kids go barefoot. It’s taken me FOREVER to update my website. Fortunately I started way back in October setting up individual WordPress folders for all my individual disciplines. I started doing that as a practice as I became more and more familiar with pro level themes and it was a good thing …
