Something's amiss with Blogger since I was last here :-/ the font is really tiny and I can't figure out how to upload photos from my computer! It only gives the options to upload from:
This blog; Picasa Web Albums; Phone; Webcam or URL. HELP!
EDITED 6th Dec
I've installed Google Chrome now and hey presto when I want to upload pics from my computer I get the option to 'Choose Files' which wasn't there before. Previously it gave the option to 'Browse' but this had disappeared since 'they' have made changes to Blogger. I know it's an ongoing thing; when changes are made they work ok for some but not others - the changes will be compatible with some browsers and not others and also may be battling against other 'stuff' on your computer. I'm just glad I didn't have to resort to downloading Picasa as I'd used it briefly once before but wasn't really happy with it. The other alternative was to upload pictures from my phone but though I could crop pictures before uploading I may want to edit them in some other way which I wouldn't be able to do. Kate is still hosting the '365 Journal' so pop over if you haven't already done so :-D
I used Chinese crystals - not as good as Swarovski - the bicones are Swarovski however. I realise now I should have made sure all the crystals were facing the same way as they are coated on one side so don't gleam so much on that side. (I may yet redo it) It is quite simple to do and if you'd like to have a go check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFbOyFaD9wk&playnext=1&list=PLC29345357827E2E2&feature=results_main [:-/ having another look at this it's so much neater than mine, still it is a first attempt ;-)]I need to change the fastening as this one is difficult to fasten on your own.
At the doll group I belong to our last project was based on 'I know an old lady who swallowed a fly' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tojKdGW7TBA those taking part had to make a head for the character they chose (mine was a 'cute troll') this was then passed on to another person to make the body, the next person made the fly and spider, the next the bird and cat, then dog and goat; after that when it was passed on we just made one animal. We never got our 'head' back at all so had no idea what our finished project ' would look like. There was a stipulation that we had to follow whatever theme the first creatures, for example if they were knitted we had to knit the next creature etc. Some didn't have a specific or obvious theme (for example after the spider and fly in one collection the next person took colour as the theme) (At the same time there was another project on the go which was to make a house and embellish internally and externally and also make a figure to live in the house. Unfortunately there aren't any photos of those on the blog). Pop over to have a look http://craftydollybirds.blogspot.co.uk/
