Start the blog off right...


Well, I've been umming and ahhing and driving friends crazy for years - so it's time I stopped pussy-footing around (thanks Mum) and actually start *doing* something with my obsession with arts, craft, photography and things that make you go 'ooohh that's cute'!

So this is my start - a humble blog - my Craft Laboratory - to map out my musings, my ideas, and of course give props to all the creative friends and divas out there being amazing and inspiring!

So let's start it off right - a decent breakfast to get us through...splendid! Cheers for the home-laid eggs Jodes - what is it about chickens that just make you smile? (I like imitating the clucking noises - go on have a go).

  2. I'm digging your header - very nice! What program did you use to do it? I used Gimp for mine and it took forever!

  3. Hey gals! Thanks for posting - what a moment - and you're not even people who know me :-)

    Caitlin - how did you find out about Holly's course? I came across it totally by accident and just decided to take the plunge without realising her background and how great she is!

    Amy - Thankyou very much - it took alot of mucking about for me too (because I have no idea what I'm doing). I actually took some info from the awesome Pip at 'Meet me at Mikes' blog (link to posting below) and used Piknic to edit and resize the jpg, add text and then saved the image and uploaded it to Blogger. I also used a Utube tute to get rid of the margins and boarders that Blogger uses in the Headers so it is just your image.
