Answering Questions...

I got a couple of questions that I want to answer for you...

Glenda asked how I got the video onto my blog: Thru trial and error, I managed to get it directly onto my blog, without going through youtube. Here's what I did:

Upload to iphoto.
Import into imovie.
Did a small edit in imovie.
Export to my desktop in MPEG format - choosing medium size.
Upload onto my blog from my desktop, by choosing the movie icon (right next to the picture icon in blogger).

I hope I explained that right. If you have any more questions, let me know, okay? I will do my best to help!

Also, KateB asked for a link to resources for white sharpies. I get mine locally at Art Materials. They also have an online store where you can purchase them - click here. I have also purchased them at I use the fine point size. I've been told that does not ship outside the u.s., but it looks like Art Materials will. I hope that helps!

I got my yellow ink for my printer today. I am behind on my projects! Sometimes taking a break for a couple of days is good for me tho, gives me a chance to miss it and I get more inspired. Does that ever happen to you?

I also got my September Studio Calico kit and add-ons today and I am so excited! It's amazing what a day-brightener it is to see that beautiful brown box at the front door! Along with my kits I got this piece of vintage loveliness:

Isn't it cute? I couldn't resist. Now I have to figure out what to do with it. The colors are perfect for my scraproom, and I had this vision of filling it with pens. It doesn't really work for that tho - the pens fall down and get lost in the bottom of the carton. So, now I'm going to have to think on it. If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them!

So, that's about it for today. I'm off to print some pictures...

Have a fabulous Thursday, and thanks for stopping by!

oh I love your vintage bin - I would use it for Rub Ons or Alphas- like Thickers- so cool!

It's a beautiful bin, Michelle. Can't you make it work for pens? Put little (plastic?) deviders on the bottom? I don't know if I explain right - but rubons or alpha's - or ribbon or lace sound good too!

I felt a giddy jolt of joy when I came home last night to find my SC box, too. I haven't opened it yet, but will tonight. I was going to wait until I used up my August kit, but that is just plain dumb. THat could make me wait until May 2010. Love the pop carrier. My first thought was to put vegetable cans (empty and cleaned) into each area to keep the pens in place. I am sure you will come up with a gorgeous idea.

I so love the Sept. kit!! I can't wait to get started with it? Can't you put little jars like baby food jars in the bottom to hold stuff?? Just a thought..
Have a great day!

you could always put some cups in there and hold your pens in those. :)
