What a Blogger Needs...

Thursday, October 6, 2011



Did ya notice the title of my post today? Well...I've learned a couple of valuable lessons this past week. If you blog...you need a good camera and a reliable computer

Both of mine died on me. Good news is that I've finally gotten my new Nikon camera! (thank you to everyone for your camera suggestions. It really helped me out). And my new Mac will arrive next Friday. Yay!!!

Now that my technical issues are fixed...I'm back in the "creative saddle" again with a new project. I'm playing along at The Kraft Journal this week.



I altered some Library cards from The Kraft Outlet. I layered lots of paper goodies and added some lace trim and stick pins.


These library cards are so fun to work with. I layered this one with fun polka dots & measuring tape. All of the sewing elements I used are from My Little Shoebox.


I also want to link this up to the Link Up for Pink Party.
I hope to see you all join in on the fun & shine the light on Breast Cancer Awareness!

I'll be back tomorrow to finally show my project for LESSology-The Doggy Bag Challenge. Be sure to stop by for some inspiration and play along with us. :)

Emily (stampingout on SCS) said...

Oh,no! I would freak if both my camera and computer were wonky at the same time. Glad you are getting new! Not such a bad deal. LOL! :)

What great pockets! I'm so glad you've got a new camera and your computer is on its way (although you might even have it by now). It's amazing how much we depend on these things nowadays!
