Showing Off ...

Classic Stripe Denim Laptop Sleeve 2

Look, Ma! See what I can do?

I wanted to show how my laptop covers can be embroidered but didn't want to mess up a good one as a sample. I've been experimenting with Flickr's free options on Picnik. I started slow, but each time I step back in, I learn something new.

Classic Stripe Denim Laptop Sleeve

Above is the original photo. I rounded the corners (but you can't see that here with the blogger frame around it), added text, and then figured out how to manipulate text to add a monogram and also the little instructions to "personalize it!" I feel so smart and techy! What next?

Oh, I know what's next --- my new calicodaisy website reveal! Lori at Scrapless Creations has been working on my new look for a while now. We are just tweaking things, and then, I guess, she has to teach me how to load it up with my personal stuff. Aaahhh! It will be one location for my non-blogging friends to find me and all my stuff. One click, and then they can just follow the tabs to see what I want to share with them.

Okay, I'm off to work again.
