My new Mac

Sorry no post for the Craft room this week with a new Mac to get used to after the sudden failure of my old laptop it proved to to complicated for a Mac newbie to do.    It's all the copy and post bits somehow a new link deleted a picture and then kept moving around the page following the mouse and not letting me write anymore.   Even closing and deleting the post did not fix the problem it just started all over again with the same link on a new post.   So when it continued after 4 attempts I gave up.   After decades of Windows and before that DOS it is going to take me a few hours to make the switch!

So at the week-end I joined a lovely group of peeps on retreat, just up the road from here so I popped home overnight.   So much creativity, talent, inspiration and sharing thank you Barbara and Kate for letting me join you all.    It is not just paper crafting sewing knitting crochet cooking it was all going on.  No I didn't sew or cook come on be sensible this is me undomesticated antithesis of the domestic goddess.   I got inky.

A set of ATCs for this months UK Stampers swap where the theme is Childhood.

2 post cards for their July Anything goes swap.   My partner will get to choose.

and a door hanger just because.

Now I will try to add some links ........ you are lucky you'll just get to see what this finally turns into.

Creative Card Crew - The Great Outdoors, rather thought my ATC set fits this theme.
Deep Ocean Challenge - On the Beach the ATCs also seem to fit.   Have you seen the banner for this challenge it always makes me catch my breath.
Get Inky - Summer Sun Fun well guess what the ATCs suit this as well!
Simon says Stamp and Show - A little stamping The ATCs are stamped and masked and stamped, the door hanger is also stamped I wonder which they will like.
Sparkle and Sprinkle - Anything but a card, Guess thats the door hanger.
The Crazy Challenge - Without Stamps, the second of the postcards qualifies, it was created with a geli pad, inks and acrylics and  stencil with whisper pens.

OK peeps as I've lost my old picture files I think my sample for the Craft-Room will not appear here which is a shame.   On the other hand feeling a lot more confident of writing my posts in future.


  1. I have popped by to see your vintage stamping can i just say think your piece is the mix of colours but you are particularly talented at this.

    Sorry to hear about your PC passing away...good luck with the MAC...I am still trying to get to grips with my IPAD. I much prefer my Samsung tablet.

    Your pieces created whilst with friends are both postcards..difficult to chose between so dont envy your friend.
