WOYWW 138

Wednesday, 25 January 2012

Wednesday again!  These weeks are moving by too quickly and the year will be gone before we know it.

I'm a bit earlier this week than I should be cos I've taken a couple of days off work to see if some R&R will help me get rid of this (insert swear word here) cold!  It doesn't seem to want to go away and just when I think it's not as bad as it was my nose starts running, my head is buzzing and I can't hear again!  I suppose it doesn't help that I can't sleep.

Anyway, onto the desk...


As you can see, I've been playing a bit with Photoshop Elements which I loaded onto the computer yesterday (see the lovely frame around my picture? - that took about an hour and a half to learn how to do, I think it wasn't working right the first time I tried.)  There's so much to learn about on it and I've been googling bits and pieces.  I think that will just have to be work in progress.  Any hints or tips gratefully recieved!

I have also managed to make a couple of cards - the one I shared last night that you can see here and the one peeking out from underneath is my DT card for Friday.

And I've also been re-watching the 3rd series of True Blood, cos the 4th series starts next week on FX and my wonderful memory needs a refresher on what happened in the last series.  I got Sky installed last week so I will be able to watch it in my own house now - I was going to my brothers before and then couldn't go sometimes and ended up missing most of the series - hence buying it on blu-ray.

So that's it.  I'm gonna head over to Julia's place now to see more workdesks from around the globe.

Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments!

What a great work desk, your card has turned out beautifully. I used to watch true blood but lost track of it and missed a number of episodes. The PS takes a lot of learning and then forgetting what you learned. Good luck and have a great Wednesday, Laura

I think it's funny that you turn up at your brothers to watch the telly!! I tried to learn PSP a few years ago but found it incredibly difficult so well done for persevering!

You have a very nice and neat space. I LOVE True Blood but we only watch through Netflix and it's so hard to wait for a season to end to watch it. This is my first week on WOYWW and it's fun checking out what others are up to. I'm also a new follower! :)

Anne said...

Hi Sheena your desk is very tidy. Like the frame around your photo- can't see me ever getting to that stage. Sorry your not well again - hope it will clear up with some rest. Anne x

Karen said...

Sorry to read that you are feeling poorly, I do hope you start to feel better soon [[hugs]]

Love the cards I peep on your lovely creative desk :)

Have a great WOYWW, Luv Karen #80

Sorry to hear you are struggling with a cold - same here as well, tho I am coming out the otherside of it now.

Not got Photoshop, I plumped for Paint Shop Pro some of it I got to grips with, but others I still don't understand and I've had it a couple of years now!

You've got a very neat desk - my bit of creating space is always so messy it might just as well be called a messy mat!

Happy play day to you! I'm quite discouraged by the crud I'm catching today. Lots of folks have it and lots of folks say it just won't leave. Have fun playing with photoshop. I used to think I wanted to learn all that but I don't have time now for all my interests. Maybe after I clone myself!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I think my comment got eaten. :-( I said bummer about the crud as I'm getting it myself. I also wanted to learn PS but realized I don't have time now for everything. Basically... foo on Blogger and happy WOYWW to you.

Lovely Card, hope you lovely week hugs Lou E #82

Funny how everything eventually leads back to technology - even crafting. I am using Pinterest to keep my picture inspirations together, so end up sat by the computer.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well,sheena, what dedication to a tv series, I hope series 4 pleases you! Am very impressed by your intent to conquer photoshop, and don't doubt that you will...I think a bit at a time. I'm afraid that I'm learning bait at a time and then forgetting , so have to revise what iknow every time I think I want to do something...and that's just the iPads picture thingy. Old age...hateful!!

BumbleVee said...

I Know...I'm a week late, but I didn't have my computer with me last week (that's my excuse!) and sis in laws doesn#t have a proper mouse only that finger square thing which i can't get on with! I'm quite sure I'd love True Blood, but we don't have Sky (sil does...but, she doesn't like anything just the normal soaps which I never watch...too busy trying to find my way out of my messy craft room! See you later for this weeks woyww!!
