Just clicked onto my Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5110312) homepage and it made me smile! It looks so bright and colourful. I only ever used to use whites, cream and neutral colours in my work. And now even though neutrals are still my favourite, Im slowly learning to use brighter fabrics, yarns and notions in my designs.

My Flickr saved favourites also show my passion for colour at the moment! - Lots of lovely bright colour from some great designers.

What else We have been busy here this week doing house work/spring cleaning and a bit of decorating, so not much crafty stuff has been done. But I have had chance to get some ideas together today and test some new designs. So here is a sneaky peek of what Im working on atm

~ Not telling you what it is though (hehe)

Plus I made this cute button tonight I found some Trims make your own buttons upstairs whilst cleaning today, so decided to make a little French knot sheep button.

Nope! :mad:


With regard to screen-shots, there is another way.

On your keyboard there is a button that says "prt scrn" Press this once and it will copy your screen onto your clipboard and you can paste it into whatever you like, word, paintshop etc!

No need to save you on Flickr - I already have a special JBjb image folder saved here on my laptop :D:D

This way is great, but the thumbalizr one gets a larger area of the screen - not just what you see. Plus it doesn't have your computer surround bit on it. ;)
