TESTING NEW WINDOWS WRITER PROGRAM

Good morning bloggers!
It was recommended to me to try using Windows Live to compose my Blog posts and so here I am - hope this turns out the way I want it to.


Okay all you 'texture' gals out there - I tried my Macro setting last night and was kind of pleased...I don't know why I never used it before but I think I got a few good ones.


This post is way close to my last one but I think that's okay...I try to do one at least once a week but here's two in one.


Textures Part 2
This will be the last of my Textures so enjoy - I want to go on to other topics and not bore you with all my photos - if I don't keep it interesting I just might lose my followers....which I can't believe is all the way up to 233!

 
 



 


























  














  


















 

































  


















  












  










































So that's my textures and I do hope it was fun for you because it was for me.

It's a rainy week here but the temps are low and I love that so I'm getting a lot done inside.

I'm almost finished with my Special Order and hopefully I can get it mailed out on Monday and then it's DESIGNING for the Christmas holiday.

I'm so way behind this year and I can only thank Country Sampler for that...lol THANK YOU 'C.S. - because of you my business skyrocketed and is still going strong so that's why I'm behind on designing but I do have to get going - we figured out there's only 9 weeks for me to get it all done in...YOWZER...anyone want to sew for me?


After all this typeing and importing photos I pray this format works - if so I'm really sold on it and I would suggest you all using it as well because Blogger Editor can be such a pain...I haven't had a problem yet so if you want it just download WINDOWS LIVE and you can have an easy to manage program that imports it right into blogger.

I have a feeling you all might think I'm saying I don't like the texture thing...'I DO', it's just that I'm running out of textures and my posts are photo heavy and I really want to add other things.

Well, as I keep typing I'm making it 'word heavy' LOL, so on that note I'll say HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Hugs, Karen

P.S.  IT DIDN'T WORK - look how messed up this is....I had no idea how to get my blog post into this one...so I had to copy the html and paste it in here and than had to format it!

NOW WHAT?   lol

  1. #1 we could never get bored here Karen - we LOVE your pictures and I feel confident saying that because - shame on me - I have talked about your home behind your back with other gals for one reason and that is because we all LOVE it!! SO any picture of your home is a hit with us including all your textures.

    and #2 - it worked! Live Writer that is! Isn't it great!

    Have a great weekend! hugs, Linda

  2. Hi Karen! I agree with Linda, we will never be bored with your pictures - no matter what they are. Just love seeing anything from your home, it's so wonderful. It's rainy and cold here today too, but maybe that will get the "fall" buyers out and about! Have a great day, Dawn

  3. I love your pictures too, I could never ever be bored!

    I'll have to look into this Live Writer when I have the time to full with it but today is mamogram time so it will have to wait.

    I'm so happy for you that your business skyrocketed from CS...I know I do just love my pineapple candle hugger and the shipping was super fast!
    Thanks again!

  4. Karen,

    I'm scared to even try the live writer. I have just figured out the pictures and moving things around. I enjoyed your textures, I think it looks wonderful.

  6. The others are right! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your photos and all of your blog posts too! You could never bore us!

    I hope you find the time to get everything done for the holidays. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate, and I hope it is enjoyable for you, and not so much like "work."

    It's rainy here too and we need it so bad. The temps have been lower too and that is such a blessing.

    Have a great weekend!
