It’s my day off! Time to blog!
Do you have any good internet links to tutorials for your favorite finishing techniques that you would like to share?
Well I think readers of my blog are going, “finishing techniques? Christine doesn’t do a whole lot of finishing!” Well, you would be right. Finishing anything in something other than a frame scares me. I have done it though, and fortunately for people like me there is someone like Dani who very clearly marks out instructions for some of those tricky finishing techniques. And sometimes Hunter helps out, too.
There have been some questions about my transfer to blogger beta. The transfer itself was very smooth. Follow the links and it does it all by itself. I have no problems with my template, everything remained the same in that respect. There are a few small differences in the interface (as in a few new or changed links on the dashboard), and we can use labels now (which I am only doing from this point forward – there are far too many entries for me to go back and assign labels to – although that option is there without actually editing the posts).
The only issue I have experienced is I seem to have to re-enter my login and password every time regardless of how many times I click on the “remember me” box. If you are planning on transferring over, know that if you have more than one blog both will be transferred – there will be now way to do one only. If you are concerned about loosing your template, you can back up what you have (just copy it into a notepad document) and if you loose it you can paste it back in.
Oh, I just thought of one other irritant – that irritating pop up regardless of whose blog you visit in blogger about that secure & non-secure items. Fix it already.
Truthfully the only reason I did transfer over is because it was getting quite annoying with how often blogger was pushing the tranfer. So really I just did it to shut them up. 😉
One last thing! My little phreak is having a birthday today!
Lauryn is now 4 years old. Now that she is all grown up there are all kinds of things she can do all by herself! The photo above was taken earlier this summer, when the girls went out to play and I told her to grab a hat (for the sun, my thinking). Apparently she thought she was cold. Hee.
