What’s New

5 October 2006:  I have put some new cards up at the HappyMessages portion of Quality Word Works.  I have decided that I need to spend an hour each day writing (the babblestory, see below); knitting or doing hand crafts; doing chores outside; and on “work”  whether art proper, cards or research.  That’s four hours a day.  Leaving ten other “awake” hours for reading, inside chores, visiting…  and on some days I know I tend to do just one thing or another.  Other days I won’t do any of the things on my list.  But if I can stick to my plan 60% of the time, I think it will keep things rolling through the winter, when I tend to have trouble getting motivated.  We’ll see if it works…  meantime, check out the new cards in the “One of a Kind” section!
17 September 2006: Tomorrow my grandparents would have been married for 69 years. Puts things in perspective when you realize they almost made it to 60… but they were always supportive of their kids and grandkids and great-grandkids. And my writing each day would have pleased them. I am putting my story online on our family website, and will take an hour most days to add a chapter. Check it out at BabbleStory.com.

You will also see that I have started categorizing links in my blog and adding a few new links. There are so many things to explore in this world! 😀

30 Apr 2006: Tom fixed the buggy code, and I found some skins we could use to change the appearance. The one I have up now is called “Almost Spring 1.3” by Rebecca Wei and can be found at beccary.com.

Tom’s current skin is pretty, it’s called “Ocadia” by the same person. I am trying to keep on top of the entries, and doing better than I did last year, for sure!

6 March 2006: I have changed the settings on the main page to show just the last three posts, and previous ones can then be viewed from the archives. This will hopefully speed upload times and download times, and just make it a lot easier to keep up to date. 🙂

The next step is to see if I can fix the buggy code that generates these pages. It looks fine in IE, but really gets messed up in FireFox, my favorite browser. 🙁 Bummer!
