My Andorian Monster
2007-11-27 02:09:00
You really have to go to this cool make your own monster site yourself, to see the animation too, no way to save the pix. I chose the face because it reminded me of my favorite obscure Trek race.

Super Woman

I think it's lame to tell you what I was GOING to do, but in this case I am telling, because I was very annoyed that it didn't work! Ugly Betty teamed up with Scrapblog, but I couldn't get it to upload my photos no matter what browser I tried. Here, try it yourself, let me know if it works for you.Since that didn't work, I'll just caracterize myself:

Overworked, Creatively Exhausted
2007-11-21 13:13:00
As you might have noticed, my postings of late have been lame. Lame, lame, lame. I'm at a creative brick wall. Plus I've been working a lot and really only have a few hours at home most weekdays. I have so many uncompleted big projects that working on the small projects or the filler posts seem like a waste of time. Work is very busy lately as well, so I am unable to focus much on Things there either. Does anyone like the month before Christmas?I have a big project that may be a Christmas present, but can't corral the time or energy to finish it. So, here's what I want to do: work on it an hour a day or a minimum of five hours a week until it's done. That's more time than the stupid filler posts and is actually working toward someThing. And posting about it would be stupid. It's also a bit of a waste of time and your energy to read the post.So if I lose, I lose. But I'm going to post only when something is done.I have a backlog of projects I'd like to finish. Big projects t...

Felt Die
2007-11-16 17:43:00
Here's a little felt die I whipped up for Bryan, it does roll, but I can't guarantee it's accuracy. I forgot to put something next to it for reference, but the pips are seed beads, if that helps you with the size, and if not, each side square is 1".

Wedding Pics Part One
2007-11-15 06:55:00
A few months ago, Shelly and I took some pictures at a wedding reception for a work friend. Today's Thing is fixing all the photos. Tomorrow, I'll have a DVD for the couple with a menu and photos. Fixing the over 130 photos took a while because the lighting was low and everyone had red eye. It was tricky finding the right exposure, color temp and saturation. There were a few good shots in the set, but because of a weird pause on the digital camera, almost all of the bride shots caught her with a strange expression on her face.Oh well.

The Budget
2007-11-13 06:37:00
Today's Thing is a budget page to track the bills. I made all the charts. The numbers in the chart now are phony, but, for years, I've just been logging the bills on scraps of pages. This way, with the help of a real Numbers program, I can see where the money goes each month. I hope to be completely out of debt in about four to five years. And I've finally paid off my student loans this month. So, woo-hoo!

 Add to your site powered by Dapper  There's new web based programs to make mash-ups on the web. You're taking content and repurposing it. I made this simple test using Dapper. There's also Pipes where I made a TTOTD flicker feed. I was lead down the mash-up rabbit hole with this cool ad generator.

Here's a look back at some of the photos of October. I was trying to use this as a calendar picture for a free PDF for a November calendar, but after an hour, none of the researched options worked as I'd liked. And I'm not quite ready to spend money.For a cheesy calendar program.
