• emailI didn’t think that many decorative artists were too familiar with RSS so I looked for a way for people to subscribe via email. That means when I write a new post, it will be emailed to them. MUCH easier for the majority. So now I’ve learned about themes, widgets and RSS. What fun. So go ahead and subscribe. I don’t write all that often. 🙂

    You’ll find it on the right, and you will be asked to confirm your subscription before it is activated so look in your sp*m or junk mail folder if you don’t receive the confirmation email.  Login in at the very bottom – right.

    Happy New Year to everyone.

  • I use Skype a lot.  My family is in England and we use it with a webcam to chat often.  I have also found it useful for client chats as I can put a headphone on and type with both hands.  I find it impossible to type with one hand!

    Skype is a free program that goes computer to computer. All you need is a microphone and in a lot of computers, they are built in.   If you would like to contact me via Skype, please email for my user name as I have it restricted to only people on my contact list.  It’s very easy to use and the quality is often better than a cell phone.

    Perfect gift for the book lover.  I like to read!  A LOT!  I also have about a dozen different book lights because I keep buying them trying to find the perfect one that works for me. Many seem to be fine but the light is so dim that I can’t read the bottom of the page. Top of the page is just fine but halfway down I find myself struggling and squinting. Ok, you can blame that on age too.   🙂

    I finally found a book light that really works.  Not only is the light bright enough but the arm is long enough that I can turn pages without interference. It is the LUMEN wireless LED book/computer light. It runs on batteries or plugs into the USB port on your laptop.  It has a long flexible neck that can be positioned anywhere.  I tried finding it on the web but it seems to be a Costco exclusive.  It’s the perfect gift for your favorite bibliophile.
