....keeps me away from what I should be doing!
This past week I have been busy figuring out the workings of our new computer. It is quite a change but I must say I really like it so far. Installing, uploading and downloading, everything is just so easy!
The thing I was dreading most was having to go without my old photo editing program. I could ' read and write' with it as we say in Dutch. After two days of playing with the editing options for our new computer, I found a free app which is very similar to my old editing program, hurray!
Of course I managed to lose my photos several times before I figured out how to save them correctly and in a way so they can be uploaded to blogger. Below are a few photos I worked on this week and managed to save correctly ;-)
While the glue is drying on the wall panels I repaired, it is time for a tea break!
The beautiful tortoiseshell tea caddy was made by Keith Bougourd of Small-Time.
In my old files I found a wonderful photo of an Aubusson carpet which looked like it would be perfect for the blue room. I have been playing with it in my editing program to get a better definition and colour, and I tried to come up with a way to print an A3 size on my own printer.
The trial print I did on fabric turned out pretty good, even though it is only an A4 size and not the A3 I want eventually. The small size did look rather nice in my other dolls house though!
While I was changing things around I also put the armchair I had made for my Christmas House into this room. I quite like it here so I think I will let it stay.
While I was getting to know my new computer, I discovered that my main website: http://josje.bouwt.com/
looks totally different on a Mac than in Windows. I never knew that! I have tried to update all pages so that Mac users can also see a presentable website. I hope you like it!
