366 Journal oh yes and Happy New Year

Hi, I'm still in the real world but bought a new laptop just before Christmas and have only just got round to uploading pics from my camera.  Was going to install the camera software but thought I'd see how I got on without it.  But also for one reason or another I've just spent sooooo much time online and none of it for crafty reasons.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year.  The main thing I got was a Kindle :-) I'm very pleased with it.  I've read 2 books already and have started War And Peace.  I know! but it's my Everest hahaha.
On to the main reason for this post the 366 Journal.  Not totally happy with January's but faffed about enough with it, and it looks better than it did.  As I didn't keep up to date in December I couldn't remember what I'd done on many of the days as you can see.  Pop over to Kate's if you want to see more or find out more about this challenge.

Have also made a Kindle cover for my youngest sis and am going to make one for myself.

My niece asked me to make a doll for her daughter for Christmas, both dellighted with it.

NB Am having problems trying to leave comments on some blogs.  Can only think it's 'cos my new laptop runs on Windows 7 and the old PC was Windows XP.  I will Google it to see if I can fix it but if anyone knows of a fix please let me know.  (My browser is IE9)

Love the cover. Your problem may be just your browser or blog person is using. there seem to have been problems recently with blogger changing the system and i frequently have problems on some of the others like Typepad and Wordpress

Hi Anne, glad to see you around again, when I see your December pages I think of apples, the colours are gorgeous and like the look of Jan too.
Great doll.
See you Thursday.
Oh by the way I am having trouble on the odd blog or so, screen just freezes.

I'm so glad to see you back among the people posting on the internet. I really LIKE the January pages. I like cool colors and these are really nicely done.

Love the doll and the Kindle cover. Can't help you with your computer problem. I use Firefox, not IE.

Good colour choice. Love the doll and idea of a unique Kindle cover.

Tracey said...

OOOH, love that kindle cover, I bought one but it was just a bit too big and had to sew a press stud on, and even that leaves a lot to be desired am just a dissaster with sewing LOL. The pages look fab too.

Take care love Txx
