I've been scarce, I know. Not only have I had a whole heap of appointments - my computer woes have reared their ugly head yet again. The second drive in my new since November Dell PC, has bitten the dust and I've had to have it replaced - yep, if you've been keeping count that's 3 drives in 3 months. I've spent hours in that time reloading software, backing up, setting up, etc, etc. Needless to say I am never buying a Dell again.
I have been in the market for a new computer for upstairs and after this experience decided to jump ship after 20 something years as a Windows user and get a Mac. Aside from the cost, from which I'm still recovering - I have to say I am loving it. The learning curve is steep, I'm slowly getting the hang of it - but, you know, it's just so, so pretty.
I've also jumped off another boat after years of using Photoshop - it's something I've just always had on the computer and mostly just use it to crop, add my name/blog and correct lighting on my images - so it was totally under-utilised, and as my version was too old (like really, really old) to put on either of the new computers, I am using Pixelmator - got to say, so far I'm pretty impressed. $1600.00 for photoshop and $32.00 for Pixelmator. Huh. O.k., then.
I did do some drawing last week and have a couple of patterns to share once I can get it all together. For now, here's a little design I created whist playing with one of them :)
Have a great weekend!
