going to find a poem/pattern somewhere I think

I went today to look for something I was putting together for a friend cause I had the urge to work on it. Do you think I could find the poem the graphing I already did  or anything nope nada!!!! I am sooo mad!! I looked through everything I could think of. Not even a hard copy on my computer duh stupid of me not to do that. Had to message the person again for the poem. So embarrassed and now she will know that I am going to work on it grrrrrr

Maybe yes??

Well picking up all of my hand dyed threads all over the floor and went through a few patterns hmmmmmm.
I might just came across a couple to stitch for Christmas gifts. I think I might have to do something about that.
I am telling myself 1 night a week or maybe on my 1/2 hr break at work I can sit and stitch and remind myself why I love it.
Hope for the best, I will post an update if I happen to have come across that mojo in one of my threads boxes that fell on the weekend....Maybe it was a sign.....hmmm

Scrapbooking program part 2

For those of you that do not want to purchase a program try out the program Fotojet. Its an online free picture editor and collage maker.
I have played with it a bit and it seems much easier to use then pic-monkey and more options to choose from. Also you can share it right away to your social media too.

This is my first one which is an Instagram size collage. I like this option. The only downfall is that you cannot share it to Instagram unless I missed something. 

this was our trip to the museum on Monday
I love the options of the clip-art with this program!!! It has a lot to choose from.

This is a template that is provided that I liked. I picked a few of my favourite photos. I added the cowboy hat (since its stampede time). which was very easy to do. I could not cover up the watermark which I don`t like to have on my photos that are keepsakes, but maybe there is a way around it. I need to play more

I need to spend some more time with it and figure out sizing ect if I use it for my scrapbooking but it seems pretty user friendly to figure out. I just need my weekend to have the time to create and get some good pages.

Hoped you liked my review

Digital Scrapbookers Post

Hi everyone!!
I know its been a long time. But alas no cross stitch but I have been crocheting. Going to update that blog too!!

So todays post is about digital scrapbooking. If you don't know what that is when basically you use a program to make a collage of your pictures. You can add backgrounds, writting, speicial characters and a lot of other items. There is also a lot of free sites you can down load backgrounds and such for free or for a min payment.

This is my third hobby which I have neglected. I started it when I had my son. Was on a role for a while and tapered off. But it is my goal by the end of the year or by Nov 25th to be caught up. It is time consuming.

So I wanted to share with you the program I use. I need to get it for my new laptop. But I do have some pictures to give you a view.
So the program is called Picture Collage Maker Pro.

This is one of the first ones I did. Love that I could write what I wanted
to remember on the picture.

this one I added background, borders on pictures, wording and the flowers.

Of course with this program you can make a tons of other stuff too, headers for your blog like I do or calendars, cd covers, keepsakes ect

Hope for some of you this might help in choosing a program, it is simple and honestly love it a lot and the only reason I am posting about it.
