I've been having some issues with my Dell for a while and so I've crossed over to the world of a MacBook Pro! I never thought I'd want one, but guess what - it's wonderful. Of course, I had already begun the switch, first with an iPhone and then my iPad this summer, so it wasn't really a hard decision. Now I'm Apple all the way.
But, even with my small Apple devices, I'm having a bit of a learning curve and will take advantage of all of the training Apple offers. Next week I'll go in for a lesson on photographs and based on how long it took me to import one today to this blog, I need the class! But, I got it done!
I've been having a blast painting flowers and veggies on bookmarks and note cards. This is a recent bookmark. I just love sunflowers, they make me happy in my garden and when I paint them, so this is the first one I shall post. I just completed 16 bookmarks last week for my Bible Study group - so there are many more pictures to come. I've been experimenting for several months now with all sorts of little paintings, so I'll be sharing a lot over the next few weeks.
I have way too many things I want to do and way too little time, but as I move to mixed media, silk paper and machine needle felting I hope you will enjoy the journey with me.
And the icing on the cake, the Houston Quilt Show begins in just a little over a month!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited? I can't wait to see the new ideas I will have when it's over, not to mention the new craft materials that will find their way into my work space. The only bummer is that I won't have my daughter here this year to shop with me. The two of us together are very dangerous in a "craft" environment, so maybe I'll do less damage this year, but I sure won't have as much fun!
Time to go create (dinner) so I'll say adios and see you again soon.
