I have signed up to OPAM 2012 again, this will be my third year and it is really one of the most motivating things that I have joined in with. Even after having a blog for about four and a half years the struggle to upload the image with the link etc in the side bar had me at odds with my beloved little netbook. I shall never understand ICT, why it should work with one thing and then drive me to despair when doing exactly the same task again (I have uploaded more linked images that I care to think about but still ended up swearing under my breath).
Well, moving on....it can be found in the side bar and links (hopefully) to Peg and you will be able to see all of the other OPAMERS and see what they are making. Their work is brilliant.
I have made several things already this month and I shall add them once I have checked that they meet the guidelines of the challenge. This year I must also remember a few things myself such as.....
*Remember to take a decent picture BEFORE giving the item away!
*Remember which file I put said picture in so that I can actually find it to post it!
*When I do a mass picture taking session to remember to go back through them all and create an end of month OPAM post using Picassa collage to show my makes for that month.
*Try not to let the end of the month round up sneak up on me and rushing to email my total.
In short I need more time and a much better memory.....trouble is one I never seem to get enough of the first and the late I think might be down to middle age (or lack of sleep).
Since Christmas I have been a little mug rug mad and with some birthdays coming up I think some more are likely to be in the pipeline.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. I need to go and plan a Textile Art lesson for tomorrow. I am doing a workshop on felting with a group.
