The Tree

I’m trying to stay up-to-date with December Daily this year. It’s been pretty exciting and I think it’s because I’ve got new gadgets: the new computer, new Selphy printer (my previous one died in August), and new Canon 12×12 printer; and new software. I went for it. Got Photoshop CC. It comes with Lightroom which I am clueless to. Not sure how I’ll find the time to learn it. Photoshop is, for the most part, similar to CS6. There are a few things that are different but I just need to explore. I’m mostly thrown off by the size of the computer screen. I don’t normally fill the whole screen with one app. I section it out, otherwise I’d have to sit pretty far back. With Photoshop, I do fill the screen (which I like), but then it makes the photo I’m editing look tiny. Anyway, I’m not complaining. Just getting used to technology.

We went and got a Christmas tree at Costco this morning. Before that, daughter came home from school for lunch. We got a quick glance of her before we headed out and she headed back to school.

Hope this holiday month is treating you well.

Cutting Flowers

Working on finishing up the Artventure course by Wilna Furstenberg and loving these beautiful florals she designed. I’m using the Silhouette Portrait to cut them.

Crafting Haul

I promised not to buy too much crafting supplies but somehow I broke that promise. These will all come in useful though.

Separate views:

I have a huge 8.5″ x 11″ stack that I’ve been collecting. The papers are so pretty I’m afraid to use them, but I really need to.

Project Life Week 7

I didn’t take very many photos during week 7.  It was the week of my daughter’s first solo competition and there was just too much excitement and nerves in the air but that wasn’t the reason why I wasn’t taking photos.  These days, I’ve cut back on photography to add other hobbies to my list. 🙂

Project Life Halloween 2012 Layouts

Sometimes I have to wait until the right digital kit/journal cards are released to create my layouts.  A couple of months back I downloaded a Monster High kit by Lisete Scrap (at Mscraps) and Brave journal cards by Amber Shaw and Studio Flergs (at Sweet Shoppe) and began to put the layouts together.  I am very behind on my PL 2012 (and 2013 and 2014…) but I’m okay with it.  I’m just going to tackle them whenever I can.
