My precious old computer died last week. It just went black right in the middle of a project. I almost cried. My computer is my bestest friend and all of my online friends live inside. I was forced to start using my new computer that I got a couple of Christmases ago. It has Windows 7 and none of my old familiar graphics software will work on 7. So...I love the smell of new software. Now finding the time to learn new *stuff* is going to be a problem. New Photoshop Elements 11 for graphics, new Photoshop Premier for movies, a Dummies book (I love these books) and a new timer. The timer is to help remind me there is real life going on and I need to limit my computer time. Oh well, a girl can never have too much software...or shoes!
I have always loved the old vintage bottle brush trees, but being frugal (aka cheap) I thought they were too expensive. I was delighted to find information online about purchasing the green trees and bleaching them. Fortunately they were on sale at Target online for less than $8. Submerged in bleach for about 30 minutes creates beautiful vintage bottle brush trees. I am tickled!!
Now, thanks to Martha Stewart, I can make my own.
It's a good thing!
