WOYWW 424 OR IS IT 423 OR......

Good day everyone.  
now lets see if my blog can post photos.

My desk earlier, now a mess as I made another background.   over the last weekend My focus switched to trying to understand Google or as I like to call it "Empire Google".  After all they do seem to manage everything.  Facebook has become too political.  All the hate spouting out from everyone on opposing political sides that I want more control to read and visit with people "of interest" or more correctly my interests.  Thus began my attempt to understand Drive, Photos and Google+.  The latter is the one I have not fully found how to use.  But thanks Sarah for your help.

The photos on my desk are from my husband's 80th birthday party, a very noisy robust evening.  He refused to count the wine bottle that went into the garbage!  I want to make him a birthday book and had everyone sign it with good wishes .  These are the only photos I have as everyone was too busy talking laughing and socializing.  Possibly due to lack of teens and others under 40.  Yesterday i meant to add them to his album, a Black Dylusions journal, but ran out of steam.  If anyone can refer me to a scrapbook or memory book they have made and posted, I will be very grateful. 

This week making icads for #icad 2017 .

#42  prompt onomatopoeia

#23 Alice in Wonderland

#37 Kamaoji

Also completed Rae Messigman's Wanderlust lesson, a journal made out of departmental envelopes.  Since I was unable to find these envelopes I just used the tan 22 x 16 size  this is front cover.  Will use as travel log for a trip to California

 more icads , Oh it means index card. the challenge is to do one a day for 60 days using her prompts and to post to Instagram under #dyicad2017.  you spend about 10 minutes on them.  I spend more time posting them!
this one is #35 and prompt, your favorite type of apple.  Most people do not use prompt.  I just look at it and go from there.

#icad30, 4th of July
 # 29 Polka dots 

Well have to go as it is time for gym and I need to try out Notes for shopping list on my mobile, to see if I "get it"! 
Have a great day will visit later today.

SO EXCITED     back again working.  tried everything cleaned and cleared and just left it; we had problems with TVs and computers so we turned all off and unplugged etc.  All electronics seem to go out in 2 year period.  It was Good-by to Sunshine my yellow beetle and hello red rider, a new Hyundai Sonata with a lot of gadgets that may take the rest of my days on earth to commit to memory! Today is July 4th and not a trace of red white and blue.  Mostly because the morning was spent posting icad on Instagram and a very plodding piece of social media it is after Facebook.  

This is for the Wanderlust Class of Rae Messigman.  She really teaches very well with great detail.  The pieces at the front are the covers of the book, she used department envelopes but they are not available in our small town.  Behind them are the signatures.  She likes to paint the folios as she does not like blank pages.  I am not afraid of blank pages just a blank mind.  I went along with her ideas as splashing around with paint is a real joy to me.  I dumped all the stuff done on tissue paper in the Gelli plate creations storage basket.  An attempt to be tidy. 

Since it is now a few years my Wednesday is spent in visiting UK and other countries  creative , that's all of you in WOYWW, I have started drinking tea every, afternoon and indulging in a chocky bikkie.( those 2 words send Mr Google into orbit, and placed Spell Checkers on over time).  I drink PG Tips, get it in this wee hamlet of kerrville.  The Chocolate digestive biscuit was replaced several bags ago with Hershey's Chocolate layer Crunch....sinful.
Ah no more photos.  Will post while at least one works
have a great week!
