Hunting for a Birthday

Recently I was shopping and really wanted a new die that would make trees. I’m really pleased with the one I got and used it to make a birthday card using it. I was going to make some Christmas cards with it, but this is […]

Gated Turkey Day

So since I’m on a mission to force myself to use more Crushed Curry paper, I decided I needed to make another version of the Turkey day invitation.  This one was based off the CAS(E) this Sketch #53. When I looked at it I almost […]

Turkey Day Invitations

 

IMG_0001I finally got around to making the invitations for the thanksgiving day festivities.  I used the Freshly Made Sketches #111 as my inspiration for the layout.  They’ll be in the mail soon!  If I don’t forget anyway…  I’m finding it super hard to use the crushed curry paper and I think I may have gone a little overboard with the colors, but hey.  Where is the fun in not going over the top.

Not Quite Navy and Gold

Just a simple card…                      

Christmas Card 1

I was trying to come up with something with the peek-a-boo frames with this card, because I just don’t feel like I use them enough. I didn’t take into account the size of the card and that I was going to have to put on […]

Perfectly Pleasing Pumpkin

IMG_2187 I was playing with some of my older dies and found one of my pumpkins and in another one had some vines. I wasn’t quite sure what else I was going to do with it, but I thought I’d try out some of the embossing folders and new framelits I got recently. I think it turned out pretty good and I could use it as just a fall card or a Thanksgiving card or something else.  I like it.

Making cards

I started making cards again recently and decided to go ahead and attempt to do a couple of web challenges. One was from Fab Friday where you needed to use specific colors for the palette. The colors were a little difficult for me to work with […]

Quiet

It’s quiet now, i hear the wind. The crickets sing, the birds chirping. The cars still drive by, but it’s more of a restful sort of hum. Low and soothing, rumbling on. Finding center, coming back. Breathing deep and settling in. It’s quiet now, beyond […]

Working with SharePoint

After working with Linux and Unix for so long it’s been difficult to go back to the Windows world. It’s not that I’m anti-windows or anything, it’s just a different environment and not one that I adore.

I’ve been trying to be fair to SharePoint and I don’t think that it’s necessarily a bad starting point, but it’s just so massive that it isn’t a one person type show.

I’ll continue to plug away at it and try not to squeeze my squishy ball to death when SharePoint designer or the web interface doesn’t work the way I think it should.

I think that’s all the ranting I’ll do for now. Like I said, it isn’t bad…. it’s just different.

Rockmelt on the Mac

So I decided to say what the hell and signed up for the “Rockmelt” beta. I was intrigued by the video and thought it might be a good experiment.  Unfortunately, it really did not live up to my expectations. The interface is nice and the […]
