Wednesday 8 August 2012


I have been out of town all day at a funeral so I am late posting this
Catching up on swaps. I had to make a button tag with hand made buttons. It took me longer to find the items than make the tag.
It's Wednesday so go to Julia's Blog and share your workspace. 
Go on I dare you.

Pity the glimmer doesn't show. I used the cling and scrunch technique for the background.

You're doing some lovely creative stuff, Carol - just looked at your string stamps! Amazing. Isn't it a pity how badly shine and sparkle shows up on photos? We all use it, and would love to share how it looks in real life!

Thanks for your comment - we really hope my parents' house sells soon, but the market is so stagnant at the moment. As for the recording tips, I've written a comment on Kate's blog (WOYWW #69 this week) with details because she was asking too. If there's not enough info on there, do please email me - there's a link in the right-hand side bar on my blog.

You don't say in what way the recording was unsuccessful. You do need quite a bit of memory, and it's wise to shut down other stuff while you are recording. It may also depend on your hardware (sound card etc.) - I've no idea what your setup is, or what recording software you were using, so it's impossible to advise you. If you want to email me with details, I'll see if I can help. I haven't used a USB connection before as my tape player is somewhat old-fashioned - I use a double-ended 3.5 mm phono connection from the headphone socket in the tape player, to the line-in socket on my desktop computer (laptops don't have this).

Happy belated WOYWW,
