Here it is.... The big black monster that is my new computer.
Now why is it that computer and technology manufactures seem to think that everything electronic needs to be BLACK???? Doesn't anyone ever stop to think that at least half of the people who use these electronics are women who would prefer their electronics to come in more soft feminine colors like pink, white or maybe even a light blue? These ugly black monsters totally ruin the look we females try to create in our home, but because we need and use them, we are stuck with them without having a choice in color options. All we can do is work around them and try our best to make them fit into our decorating styles as much as we can.
Except for my new computer being my least favorite color of black, I am totalling LOVING it so far... I love having the flat wide screen and I am slowly figuring out how everything works. Most of you probably noticed that I have changed my blog background. I did that because with the wide screen monitor that I have (which by the way is a 21.5 inch monitor if anyone is wondering) the old background I had on my blog just didn't look right to me anymore, so I found one that works and looks better with the widescreen monitor.
Now for the other thing. Last week, when I was without a computer at home and not able to do any blogging, I spent some time working on my decorating scrapbooks. If you haven't read about my decorating scrapbooks, go here to read about them:
I managed to get a few pages completed and these will make their way into my notebooks.
For this page, I chose a theme of purple and yellow...
These two pages have a theme of pale pinks and cream.....
And the final page I completed features a theme of pinky reds....
I can find myself spending hours and hours on these decorating scrapbook pages, deciding on a color theme and a layout until everything looks just right before I start taping everything to the pages and them putting the finished pages into sheet protectors and into my scrapbooks.
Well that's all for now girls. I'll be back on Tuesday for the first installment of the new weekly theme of "Tea Things Tuesday". Can't wait to start sharing my collection of teapots with all of you and seeing all of the great tea things you will have to share as well.
Enjoy the rest of your long Labor Day weekend. Be safe and have fun!!
