Goodbye Picnik, Hello Picasa!

Standard

Even though Picasa is not new to the world, its new to me.  When Picnik emailed everyone telling them that they were closing up shop, I was a bit depressed.  I grew fond of Picnik and I really like its features.  So, I had to move on and dabble in Picasa.  Here is my first collage creation.  Please enjoy and feel free to add your constructive comments below.  Is it too busy?  Is it hard to process what these photos are?  Does your eye travel around the collage or stay at a fixed point?  I’d like to know what you think so I can improve.  Overall, I want to make a collage that presents my product professionally and clearly to anyone who is looking at it.

If YOU are a Picasa expert and have some tips to share, I’d love to hear about what you’ve learned in using this free online tool.  My first question, “Is there an upgrade option like Picnik where I can pay a fee and get more features?”

Dye2Spin’s February Sale on Etsy

Visit Online Fiber Artists for a chance to win!

From now through February 29th (looks weird doesn’t it?) any item in my Etsy Shop, Dye2Spin, will receive a 20% discount.  So, take a look around the shop and over 50 hand-dyed and hand-spun items, pick out your faves with pink or red in them, then check out using Paypal.  The moment I see your order, I’ll issue a 20% refund of all the items you purchased that have red or pink.  When I think about it, that’s nearly half the items in the shop!  OMG!

While you’re at it, you’ll still get free shipping to the US as usual PLUS an entry into the Fiber Indie eXperience February Gift Card drawing.  There will be two gift cards given away, one for $50 and one for $30.  These gift cards can be used at any of the participating FIX co-op shops.  Here’s a link to my blog post with all the FIX members and shops.  Happy fiber hunting!

Fiber Indie eXperience January Prize Box

Standard

Its your last day to get your orders in for the amazing January Prize Boxes through FIX on Ravelry!  Visit any FIX Co-op Member, make a purchase in their shop, then list the details of your order on the FIX Ravelry JPB discussion thread for your chance to win!  There is a Spinning Box, a Knitting Box and then a Mixed Box and you get to rank your choices!

The Time has Come! FIX Prize Box Giveaway

Standard

 

You’ve waited, you’ve wondered and NOW the time has come for you to participate in your first Fiber Indie eXperience Prize Box Giveaway.  Basically, you make purchases from FIX Co-op Members, like myself, to enter your name into the January prize box drawing  of fabulous fiber goodies!  Purchases from December 30th through January 29th are valid for the entry for the prize box.

But HOW do I enter after making my purchase?

Great question, glad you asked!  Let’s say you go to LMS Studio Arts and make a purchase of three items on January 14th, your name would be put into the prize box drawing ONLY AFTER you go to the FIX Ravelry Group and post your date of purchase, items purchased, and shop where you ordered in the Prize Box thread , then you are entered.  Let’s just say, for grins, that you visited Little Monkey’s Stitch n’ Spin on January 20th and buy two items.  You would then be able to go to the Prize Box thread AGAIN and enter the order information stated above for and ADDITIONAL entry.  You get the picture, I’m sure.

Seven days and Counting

Standard

Quickly, I’m just sharing my excitement about the November 27th Coffee & Crafts, our first ever Craft Cafe Mobile event!!! There is sure to be lots if fun, laughter, creativity, and down-right amazingness going on that day.

I received some freshly ground Cappulido coffee yesterday from my husband’s friend Eric Pulido. That will be served along with the wonderment of JenBrickman’s Bakery.
