Cup of Tea


I woke up today excited to post on my blog because I had colored and created and tried new things yesterday without feeling pressed.  It's been good to get ahead of the classes and schedule a little.  The website needs work, I need more experience taking pictures and using Paint Shop Pro... but on the whole, it's nice to start creating again without wondering if I could understand how to do calendars, websites, links, trims, borders, etc.

When I was tooling around blogs yesterday, I also realized I would have to start watermarking my cards again...which I had forgotten about.  It's not so much to credit my work (ok, maybe that too!)- but requests from stamp companies to not make it so easy for the images to get reproduced without purchase.  After talking with a tech guy from my hosting service, I was told there was almost nothing you could do anyway, since people who know what they are doing don't find it hard to take it off.  What a shame!  I'll still watermark the images when I put them in the website though...I don't think hackers are into coloring!!!

Demra put her blog up last night for the Nook and Cranny here in Port Huron, MI.  I raced over there to be her first "follower"!  Here it is....she's just getting started, but eventually there will be a beautiful montage of "Made in Michigan" Crafts to page through.
