I hinted about it last week - there's a new blog in town! In fact, I wanted to switch to a new blog address for quite some time. It always felt like cheating a bit since I seldomly posted anything "scrappy" aka scrapbook layouts. Anyway... contrarily to what I initially planned, I am staying with Blogger since it gives me the freedom to customize everything - the most obvious for you will be the slightly increased width and larger images. But see for yourself! Hope to meet you on pixelsandglue.blogspot.com soon :)
PS: If you happen to see this on your news reader, would you mind to update to my new blog feed?
Hello dearies, how's it going? As for me, I feel a peace of mind today. The ugliest part of term tests is over for the time being, I survived the past week without a functioning kitchen (got new floor tiles), backed up my files for the first time in a year and update the OS, got my ScrapARTsize articles and projects for autumn done (though, amidst the chaos of having the kitchen furniture etc. scattered all over the house, I may or may not had sent some article notes away in a return package to an online retailer...!!) and worked on switching the blog to a new address (hint, hint!)...
So, my plan for today covers just very easy-going things, like reading a bit in the current issue of SAZ which I've barely skimmed so far, having a few scoops of vanilla ice cream in the sun and taking a tour around blog land and leaving you all some long overdue comment love :)
In one of my last posts, I used a typewriter for the card sentiment and Nina asked in the comments what kind/brand it is. I would love to say it's the one above but that's just not true. The ribbon of my lovely Adler Contessa De Luxe ran out of ink some loooong time ago... I usually use an electric machine from Brother since I'm not used to the huge typewriter keyboard layout and therefore make spelling mistakes quite often. I like that it offers to erase incorrect letters and words with just the push of a button but, on the con side, much of the vintage flair gets lost. Also, let's face it: a grey box with an equally grey keyboard on top doesn't make for a great photo ;-) How about you? Do you still have a typewriter at home and use it for your projects? In case you like the look but don't have one, don't worry! Someone has converted the characteristic Adler letters into a font.
