Hey, I'm still here!

The random post of all things random.

Hey, the internet has not yet been switched off. In fact, right now its just about the only thing to do while the packers sweep through our home with the fabulous brown boxes. Packers are great, right?

Those two above pictures are my beloved sewing room, sans fabric which has already been delivered to the new headquarters in Kansas. We took a uHaul up last weekend, just to be sure.

So what the heck have I been doing on the computer? I cleaned up my website a tiny bit. Did you see the recently added TimeLine O'Jen on the About Me page? I also added these flashy new page headers to each page. The blog makes the inserted images awfully small. Here, I'll link it for you so you can see it in action, full size.

AND I thought I'd do a little more practicing in Illustrator. I took an "old" scanned digital scrapbook doodle from my own files and turned it into a vector drawing.

The madness didn't stop there. I decided I needed flower frame for my collection.

Then I went through a few more scanned-in doodles to create another frame using the different brushes in Illustrator.

I've just got to keep on practicing. And when I'm not on the computer, I'm going over my presentation for Friday's school house. Very exciting times, my friends! Ok, looks like today they really will be packing up the desktop computer... Adios, peeps. 'til we meet again!
