Oh hello ...

are you still here? I thought everyone had left already.

Seriously though, if you're actually readying this, then either;

a) you haven't updated your "blogs I read" list in a REALLY long time
b) you can't remember how to update your "blogs I read" list
c) you 've been waiting [very] patiently for me to write something worthwhile, meaningful and/or amusing

If your answer is a) or b) ... snap. Me too.
If your answer is c) ... sorry, maybe next year.

smartphones & dingbats ...

Yes, this IS the third week in a row that I've actually updated my blog #shock #horror #dontfaint and talking of hash-tags, have you checked out the "mobile ready" goodies launched at The Lilypad this weekend? They're so cool! They're dingbats type fonts (TTF) that you can download right to your smartphone (iOS & Android) and then add to your photos using suitable software. I'm using a FREE app called Phonto and I'm able to change the size, colour & opactity of the wordart / dingbat / font. Here are just a few examples of the photos I've created & uploaded to Instagram so far ...

And here are a few layouts created in the past week (or so) ...

beige delights ...

It certainly wasn't intentional, but over the past few weeks I've found myself creating layouts with a distinctly beige feel to them ...

just some stuff ...

I'm not even going to make up an excuse. I'm just rubbish at remembering to update this blog. Sorry. If you're still here and reading this, I thank you. Your patience is always appreciated.

not a fan of [unnecessary] change ...

but then again, who is? So this week when Flickr updated their site, I admit to cursing, several times, under my breath! I'm not a fan of the new style / LO. My first instinct was to try and revert back to the way it was before and the way I prefer it, but I guess I'll get used to it ... eventually.

In the mean time, here are the layouts I've created since my last post ...

it started with a single snapshot ...

and ended up being a week long photo series! I treated myself a new casual scarf and took a snapshot, which I then uploaded to Instagram. I deliberately cut-off the top of my head in the photo and thought it looked kinda fun, so I decided to take a similar style snapshot each morning [before going to work] showing my chosen outfit for the day ...

yeah, I'm still here ...

It was never my intention not post here for 3 months. Earlier this year, I took a short break from some of my CT responsibilities and this allowed me to scrap for myself for a change. Since returning to all my CT commitments, I've decided to simplify things. I'm going to use my blog to mainly showcase my layouts and photos. Sure there will be some other kind of posts every now-&-then (like holidays or other things that capture my attention), but in the main, this is going to be another gallery, somewhere I can post any LO without having to meet certain percentage criteria etc.

Hope you'll still pop by once in a while.
