by the swap bug! C-H-O-M-P!
I’ve only been blogging since January and I’m still in awe with the wonderful people I’ve had the good fortune to ‘meet’ as a result. Although I’m not particularly fond of computers…simply because I don’t understand them and as a result, they have this uncanny ability to intimidate me…it has become a sometimes stubborn ‘friend’ who has brought the world to my doorstep.
When I started reading about how much fun people were having with swaps, my curiosity got the better of me. With some hesitation, I joined my first swap which was hosted by Julie in the great land of OZ, who coincidently, also happened to be my swap partner. To make a long story short, she and I have become ‘best buds’, even though I need a translator because I don’t understand half of what she says…OZ-isms, you see. VBG!
Since then, I have participated in 4 other swaps that have also sent me globetrotting. My gifts have been made and sent and all but one have been received by my swap partners. The most recent one was just posted yesterday and has quite a distance to travel.
Melissa is hosting a signature block swap. For more details, click on the photo above and you can read all about it there. Wouldn’t it be fun to make and receive enough signed blocks to make a quilt from friends and yet-to-be friends? I think it’s a great idea and I’d love to have one of yours. The blocks are really easy to make so be sure to have a look.
The second swap I joined is the Stitching Angel swap. You may link to it here or just click on the button on my sidebar for more information.
Since yesterday, I’ve been unable to right click on photos to save them as I have done in the past. When I right click on a photo…or in this case a swap button, the window appears to ask what I’d like to do with the picture and I click on ‘save as’ as I’ve done in the past. When I check in my stored pictures, the photo is no where to be found.
Also, when I try to add a picture to my sidebar using the ‘Add a Gadget’ and ‘Picture’ feature, the ‘browse’ feature does not appear anywhere in the window thereby preventing me to upload pictures to my blog.
Can anyone P-L-E-A-S-E help me with my Blogger woes and computer illiteracy before I toss this machine out the nearest window?
