Your My Work desk Wednesday
Last Friday the announcement I had been waiting for came through on the Spellbinders Blog to say I had qualified for Round 2 of the 2013-2014 Spellbinders Design Team.
I am excited beyond recognition, to say the least. The excitement gave me a massive headache for the day, I was so disoriented I took the dishes to the toilet instead of the kitchen sink. I had tried out last year and didn't get past Round 1 but I vowed never to give up as I love my Spellbinders Dies ever since I set my eyes on them in 2008.
You can see all 37 successful applicants HERE.
Now to buckle down and design for Round 2.
In March I became a member of Spellbinders International Blog Ambassadors Team, designing for their new International Flair Section called Explore Beyond.
Of course I can't show my desk but I will show you my new toy, its an Olloclip and is a lens for your IPHONE. I first saw amazing photos taken by Teresa Franco using her IPHONE using the Olloclip and just had to have one. The detail on the macro setting is amazing. It also has wideangle and fisheye. I can see I am going to have some fun with this new toy that fits into my handbag.
Then a few days later my Nikon point and shoot died on me....what did I do wrong!!! So off I went yesterday to find me a Canon Point and Shoot. I almost didn't know what to get, there were too many choices. So my decision was based on picture quality and full HD video capacity and low light perfect shots and was sold on the
Canon Powershot S110. These 3 criteria fulfilled the requirements of when I shoot in my dungeon, as I do a lot of photos with my point and shoot more than my DSLR (for now).
It has 12 mega pixels, 5x zoom and the picture quality is awesome, even looking through the screen which is HUGE is awesome, I am no longer shooting blind. It comes in black and white, I chose white just to be different LOL so I could find it in my handbag. It is so intelligent I am scared of it lol. It has touch screen capabilities which scared the heebeegeebees out of me. It also has manual control like a DSLR.
So I'm off to study this new camera of mine in between crafting,
If you'd like to see what I design on my desk, run over to my
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, I had a brilliant one thanks to my daughters who surprised me by coming down after work, they live 3 hours drive from me so its very precious time I have with them when they can make it.
Julia's Stamping Ground will show you more desks around the world. Anniversary ATC coming up in WOYWW #208-are you ready?
Yes I have changed the colour of my blog, the black background doesn't work and I found that out when I visit a lot of black background blogs, it is impossible to view and seems to fade into oblivion while I am reading.
