What I've been up to...

I've been 'in training' - literally!  First off, I started to teach myself a bit on photo editing with GIMP.  If you don't know what GIMP is, it is a free downloadable software that you can edit photos with. It has similar features to Photoshop.  I've been wanting to be able to improve the quality of my photos for not only my projects here on my blog, but even my photos to scrapbook, but I hadn't been quite determined to watch tutorials and practice...til now.  I have been able to find the white balance option which helps makes my cards look more what they look like in person.  I also learned about layers and how to resize images.  So far so good.
Then, I had to find out a way to turn my videos around so you are not watching me upside down, but more as if you were behind me.  This was a challenge, but thanks to my husband and a tripod I am now able to flip my videos without a problem!  Yay me!  I also cleaned up my craft space a bit too since I had to make room for the tripod on my desk.
Finally, I have been literally working out.  As part of my new year's resolution and because I have a wedding to go to and I'm wearing a strapless dress, I really am motivated to work out!  =)  I hope to tone and build up my cardio abilities since I'm so out of shape.  So each workout is about an hour...so that is time taken away from my crafting time.
So, because of all this training I have not been able to create a layout or card or stamp anything.  Boo.  But I did get a new stamp set and I am anxiously waiting for my goodies from Paper Crafter's Library (PCL), to get started on creating videos and projects to share as a design team member,  for members of PCL. Hopefully by next week I will have more paper crafting projects to share.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm excited for the next few weeks of projects.  Stay tuned...
