OH Dear!

Having just bought myself a big treat, a Wacom Tablet, I should have been very busy getting to know it, but the fact is that I have been busy in other directions. The biggest excitement is that I am going to give up full time work at the end of the year. This should give me plenty of time for new endeavours. I hope to make more of my textile interests; I’m not sure in what direction yet. I would like to teach and sell more work.
In the background is the fact that my camera died and I have been mourning it, even though my son says ‘get over it’ and that nothing is made to last. I am researching a good buy and it gets more complicated each day.
You may also have noticed that I have gone over to the Beta version. I feel sure it will be better in the long run, but I have lost most of my add-ons and have to start again. I can’t seem to put a picture on the header in the minima template. The very worst problem is that it will not let me in unless I say I have forgotten my password and gain access by blogger sending me an e-mail. I had a feeling it was a mistake to move to Beta, and it looks as if I was so right!


  1. Jackie you lucky lady to be able to give up work .. I will keep my eye on you to see what you get up to

  2. Thanks for your comments, Jackie. Happy to hear about your new Wacom and being able to have more time for artistic pursuits in the near future. Best wishes with both! If I can help or answer any questions about Painter please don't hesitate to ask. And how about the coincidence that I also have a new tablet which you can see/read about in my latest entry. I am also looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  3. Jackie it has taken me a while to get accustomed to beta - now i like it better than the other. I am sure you will soon master it!

  4. Hang in there Jackie - Beta is better - I am finding it so much easier after my initial hassles

  5. Thanks for all your encouragement. I must say I have already sorted a few problems. I still have to go in via Beta Blogger on Google. I cant log in at the top of the blog.

  6. I bookmarked the login page, so that's where I go to get on the Blog. Beta has been a LOT easier to work with. I had printed out a copy of my old template, so that I had it on paper before I switched, so it was easier for me to tell what had changed, & how I could play with it to make what I wanted. I haven't tried all the add-ons that can be had.

    I've noticed a lot of bloggers going to type-pad, but I can see why you'd want to pay when this is free & easy!

    Lucky you to be getting off from full time. I hope to go there next year at this time, but I suspect even part time will be more than I want to work.


Comments are always much appreciated. Thank you.
