Use It Up and the Last Post for 2011

What a day! This computer is over 3 years old and telling the tale. Would not boot. Son2 worked on it all afternoon and finally got it to boot up. Still don't know exactly what the problem is. It may also happen again. And again. We shall see.

I have been advised to NOT put large files (videos..umhum) on the C drive. OK. Now I need to get them off and defrag. But not tonight! Already having withdrawls from non-computer-useage! So, tomorrow I shall begin "cleaning" the computer.

At the same time, the Studio is getting "cleaned". Way too much stuff in here! Well, there is good news on that front. UIU to the rescue! Use It Up! Instead of buying more and more STUFF, do as Fran suggests and go shopping in your own home! I have taken the pledge and can't wait to put it into action.

Read about the Pledge here at LadyFran's Blog. Use the supplies that have been sitting on the shelf or in a drawer. When was the last time you saw what was even IN that bottom drawer? What happened to those who-zee-what-its you bought last week? Last month? Last YEAR?

Take what you have and make it work! Re-think those projects. Re-evaluate the reason you wanted to make that "wonderful" such-and-such in the first place! And if it was so "wonderful", why didn't you make it? All good questions to ask yourself - especially BEFORE spending hard earned bucks.

I PLEDGE TO USE IT UP in 2012 and beyond! Won't you join in?

Ustream Show - December Daily Albums Past

I have decided to finish my past December Daily/Journal Your Christmas Albums before trying to start a new one for this year. I will continue to take photos, collect ephemera and journal for this year - just not try to do the album until later.
So, during the rest of December, I will be working on the DD albums from 2009 and 2010. All the embellishments and photos and journaling are collected and ready to go! I know I will feel better about them when they're done!

My weekly Live Ustream Show is 11AM EST every Friday!  Time Warp Art - there's a reason for the name.
