Busy but frustrated

I guess you have been wondering what the *&^# has happened to me.
Well I am still here, alive and well, and I have been quite busy too. I just can't take any pics for you because the old camera is really screwed up. No matter what I do I can't get a good pic.
I changed the resolution........ didn't help, (sigh)
Gave the lens a really good cleaning................didn't help, (WAWAWA)
Threw it against the wall.................didn't help (GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR).
OK just kidding on that last one, but that's what I wanted to do.

So I guess you are stuck with li'l ole me for now.

I have been playing with my free trial of PSP (Photo Shop Pro) the last few weeks, and haveing a ball. There are so many things you can do with that programme, I just love it. I thank Carol, for that.( sorry, I can't figure out how to put in blogs so you can go right there, HELP.... ANYONE?????) She dose so many wonderful things with it that I just had to get it and try it out.
I did go to Costco to buy it, but there were none there that day, so I thought I'd try the trial version first. Well I can tell you that was one of my better ideas.
I think since I have to get a new camera anyway, I might as well pick up PSP as well on the same trip. A week or so left on the trial to go though. LOL
So in the mean time I'll just keep playing with that and keeping an eye on all you creative people out there for now.

This year is not starting out on the right foot it seems, first my camera dies on me , then all this snow...... I know, I know, that's what winter is all about, but I hate it OK. I did get a new printer for Christmas though and can't wait to use that, I'm letting the ink from the one I use now to be used up first, as I had just bought them before Christmas and their too much money to let just dry up.

Well folks, I don't want to bore you to tears, so I'll be off now. As soon as I can, I will post pics of my cards and drawings.

Have a great day/night all

For you LUCI

In response to you comment in my last post I though I'd show you the water soluable crayons.
This is a tin of 10, but you can get bigger ones. A tad on the expensive side, that's why I only got 10.
They are made by GARAN D'ACHE of Switzerland
10 Neocolor II water-soluable wax pastels. They come in three different shade groups that I know of.

These are great as a water-soluable too, although they are not advertised as such. A bit less money, I think I pais $7.50 for this pack of 12. These also come in a variety of shade packs, and sizes. They are woodless color pensils, which outlast woodcast pensils and have ideal blending properties.
finest hartmuth color
by Chartpak
made in the czech Republic.
And there are woodless Graphite pensils also.

Hope this helps you.

Painted on Canvas

Today I felt like drawing, so I painted this on canvas. I got the focus better but cut off the top of her head, sorry about that
I used my water soluable crayons. I think it turned out ok. They blended great on the canvas.
I will be adding a background later. Posted by Picasa

Cards at last

Well it seems that since the new year I just can't get in the mood to do any crafts.
These two cards are put together from patterns that I sewed in Oct. 2006 and just never finished. So in trying to get in the mood I though why not try doing cards that were already in the makeings.
They both seem to be a bit fuzzy, Sorry for that, but I did try takeing pics of them a few times with the same results.
The wording on the top card reads "The heart that loves, is always young" in case it's not ledgible.
The red card is the original pattern with the grid still attach, while I did try to change it up a bit on the blue card, missing the mark at tad, I am still pleased the the result.

Day 6 of the New Year

It's now day six into the new year and I recieved this from a friend today.
This was wished to me, and in turn I wish this to you, all my blogger friends.

After serious and Cautious consideration.... your contract of friendship has been renewed for the year 2007.

My wish for you all in 2007

May peace break into your house and
may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of you jeans become a magnet for $100.00 bills.
May love stick to your face like vaseline,
and may laughter assult your lips.
May you clothes smell of success,
and may happiness slap you across the face.
May your tears be that of joy,
and may the problems you've had forget your home address.

To put it simply
May 2007 be the best year of your lives.

A bit dramatic, but effective and heart felt.
