Well, it is here where I am. Sunny and blue skies , Sunday and I'm actually off work for the weekend. (which only happens once a month )
Yesterday we headed down to the beach for the First Light festival . My Fitbit told me I had walked over 14.000 steps when we got home and I could feel it ! I was actually glad to be back home and sitting down felt like heaven :) Coming off nightshift yesterday morning and only a few hours sleep meant I didn't have the greatest amount of energy. But I sure slept well last night .
As I didn't get anything done in here yesterday , it means today is cleaning /laundry day. I'm glad I woke up early and was able to get a lot already done while it was still cooler outside. Now it's getting warmer and UK houses don't come with air conditioning. All we have are fans to keep us cooler when it gets hot in summer. Mine will surely be on later because I'm menopausal hot stuff anyway :)
I showed a picture of the started Crochet basket in my last post …
Do you hunt for free patterns like I do? I'm on an app called Readly where you can get all sorts of magazines. Obviously my favourites are all sorts of art and craft mags. Then I take screenshots of the patterns and instructions on my tablet. I also get patterns and ideas from Pinterest and various blogs.If there is no download option taking screenshots works just as well.
I ended up with numerous folders with pics categorised by Macramé, Knitting, Crochet,Recipes , Painting etc.... Problem: Screenshots were saved as png files and they can use up quite a bit of space.
So what I'm doing now is to create my own little e-books. It's dead simple !
Open Microsoft Word , create a new document , insert pictures (those screenshots) , then save as pdf file. And voila , you have a pdf e-book with your patterns which takes up a very small amount of space on your computer. If you want to print out instructions just type in which page (s) you want to print. And if I want to take it with me without printing, the files can easily be copied to a tablet or even my phone. You can even create an index for the first page , so you know what is actually in that pdf file/e-book.
OK. I didn't get time for more paintings this time , so I will get straight to the new freebie kit now.
More parts coming and please ignore the "Magickal Scraps " logo on the previews. That used to be my old store and doesn't exist anymore.
Have a nice Sunday and stay crafty
