I never like having to make an excuse for not doing something but I feel an excuse(s) is warranted when I havedn't posted for a while. And with a blog post, it's usually technology related matters. So my excuses for not posting are partly because of the transition to the new catalogue that I've been busy pulling all my retired stamp sets, ribbons, dies and a multitude of other accessories that are retiring and, yes, technology issues.
What a chore getting all the retired items together and creating a spreadsheet of the inventory and what a great deal of surprises it brings when you go through everything that's been accumulating over the years that you find things that haven't even been opened!! My technological related matters have been challenges and boy, they are exactly that - challenges - first a new computer with the Vista operating system, Office 2007 and Photoshop Elements - all totally new to me! My biggest learning curve is using Photoshop to download the pictures from my camera and editing, and I must say, its been extremely "interesting" as I try to go through it. The language has been quite colorful and its a wonder I have any hair on my head as I try to use it. After spending an hour and a half on the phone with tech support for Adobe - we did a get a few items resolved - like the size of the resolution on my screen to enable me to see the tool bar for PSE. He went through the steps but don't you find that when someone is saying do this, do that, you do this and do that and after you hang up - it's like, now what do I do! Because you're just following instructions and not having time to write any notes it's hard to remember the steps - but I did try to jot down a few things. Since that call, I have not had a chance to use it and will hope that , I can go through it without too much . , , . well, you know what I mean.
Since the resolution of the screen has been changed, the screen print is so small I need binoculars to read what I've typed. Ah well, such is life in the technology world.
So, thank goodness for the In Box - and today I got a few pictures of cards from Jen that she's made and as I don't have to download them from my camera, I can easily share them with you.
This is one that's just in time for Father's Day using the King of the Grill set from the Summer Mini (p. 29, #121707, $24.95 WM, #120066, $19.95 CM). Coloring is not one of Jen's favourite things, but she did a great job on this.
The primary cardstock is the new Daffodil Delight - I just love that shade of yellow.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
