Wishing you all a blessed Sunday!!!
Hummie B said…
Thanks Tammy!

How is everyone's weekend going? I blogged about my Saturday on the fitness post, so I won't repeat. More of the same today. Scrapping and organizing the house for me.
Dawn said…
Hey everyon!!! Happy Sunday to you!

I am just getting home and settled from church. Our new pastor ws installed today, so there was a ceremony and luncheon after. I am exhausted!! My foot is hurting from not having it elevated at all today, so I have it up now.
Hummie B said…
Today we didn't get done what we wanted to. Got side-tracked visiting an Aunt in the hospital who fell and has a broken wrist and a broken hip. With only so much daylight after church in the afternoon, time to do things seems limited.
Hummie B said…
Happy Monday! How does your week look? Mine is super busy! Work all week. Monday and Wednesday and Friday night cleaning job; Tuesday night small group at my house; Thursday night teaching night class.

I'm thankful for work though!
I may be picking up another evening class too!
Tammy said…
Good Monday morning. Vacuuming, cleaning toilets, laundry, ironing, homeschooling, taxiing (maybe) my youngest to and from work, and...I think there was one more thing on my list, but I can't remember what it was. Thank goodness for my Motivated Moms app. :D

Sounds like a busy week ahead for you, Hummie.

Hope your foot is better today, Dawn.
Hummie B said…
Ug, Tammy. I know... doing taxes is on my mind too. Feb 1 will be here soon and I need that refund! But I don't want to do the taxes.
Tammy said…
Taxes?? I didn't say that T word. LOL!!!!! I said taxiing. Too funny.

I haven't thought about taxes yet.
Hummie B said…
Oh my goodness. You did say taxi-ing. lol See, we read where our minds are at. Unfortunately, sometimes we say where are minds are at too -- out loud. I hate when I say one thing and think another. Does that ever happen to any of you?

OMG! I did it! Got my first two layout linkys up. Yeah me. Okey doke, back to more creating.
Bastet said…
Today may not have gone as planned but I realised that I have completed 3 LOs and completed a 4th in 3 days and completed 3 lessons. Oh and baked a cake for hubbies birthday. Back to work tomorrow, so need to make sure I find some time to scrap, to keep some balance in my life.

I haven't posted in the Course 1 Lesson 6I Forum - let me know if I need to. My greatest learning from the lesson was what all the options are for. What an amazing tool, no idea it did all that. Thanks for sharing your knowledge Hummie.

In PSE11 there is a Refine Edge button with many options, it appears to include a few things in the lesson video, plus some more. Looked at it and felt overwhelmed - so if anyone has used it can you give a quick run down of the options?
Hummie B said…
Bastet, I can relate to my days never going as I planned but to look back and see any good in the day is healthy.

I have not decided what to do yet with the tutorials that require a comment only. I am thinking it may be best just to go to Youtube to leave your comments. What do you think about that option?

The other option would be for me to make a blog post, but that seems like more work for me to create the blog posts and link them up.

I am afraid some won't want to have a Google account in order to comment on Youtube. Something about it being a G+ account too. I'm not sure if they make you have it a G+ to log into Youtube or just a Google account. But just because you have a G+, it doesn't mean you have to post there on G+.

Good morning!

We are expected to have a snowstorm today. It was said to have been starting this morning, but so far nothing. I am really hoping that it stays that way, because I have a dentist appointment at 2:30. I have to have some extensive work done, and I am not looking forward to it. But... I figure if I dealt with a root canal the week before my surgery, surely I can survive this too!

I need to get in the shower and get dressed yet, but I am hoping to start on a layout today. I have some ideas in my head, and I want to see them come to fruition.

You may have seen my comment on the challenge round up post, but I am considering dabbling into word art. I have never done it before, and I have some ideas. I would probably use actions that I have from AC that I have never utilized.

We shall see how this comes out!!
Tammy said…
Said a prayer for you, Dawn.

Happy Thursday to everyone. :)
Hummie B said…
Yep, happy TGTH -- Thank God it's Thursday! Which is the day before Friday! I thought today was Friday until about 9:00 a.m. and then it hit me. lol
Dawn said…
The dentist was good, and then again not good. They didn't have it in their books that I had an appointment, despite me showing them the card that they wrote for me! They did do 2 fillings, but did nothing about the reason I came in the first place, and I didn't get my cleaning done. Grrr. But, God is good and He knows what He's doing, so I'm just rolling with it.

I made my first word art today, and Hummie has been a help in giving me input.

I also have a layout in the works. It's almost done, but I am not sure if it will get finished tonight or not. I am hoping so, so I can have my first experience with linky. lol.

I'm not doing a challenge or lesson on this one. I'm "just scrapping". A good way to get myself back out there. :)
Dawn said…
I just finished my layout, and I think it is working right on here. Linky is so easy!!!

I'm going to bed early, cause the numbness has worn off my mouth, and it hurts pretty bad. I'm glad I still have some oragel left!

Talk to you all tomorrow after my ENT appointment in the morning!

2. ONLY add links to layouts of lessons or challenges at Hummie's World. You can add any layouts to the gallery, of course.

Dawn, for which lesson or challenge is your last layout made?
Bastet said…
Hummie, I haven't posted on YouTube before but would happily try it. I think you mentioned somewhere that this improves your video rating which would increase the videos status and therefore more people likely to view which is a good option to increase your community. I will go back to the Course 1 Lesson 6I video and try to post a comment.

The other option is for them to post in the Chatter and Layouts. The downside is possibly the extra chatter in the feed - not sure how much that would be but I'm sure you would have a pretty good idea. And the upside is that people will learn more about others using the site and maybe become more comfortable chatting.

Dawn, hope the pain has eased and your appointment went well. My husband has been suffering from repeated and constant headaches so is off to the neurologist next week. MRI he had earlier suggests nothing serious. We are hoping it is muscular and maybe physio and improved posture will fix it.

We have attempt 3 for fridge delivery tomorrow (Sat morning) and I have decided to photograph it on arrival and complete a LO with the story of it's travels.
Bastet said…
Hummie, posted a comment in YouTube - it said to post a comment I had to create a YouTube Channel - so I did. Looks like I have G+.
Dawn said…
It wasn't for a challenge or lesson. I made a layout for me just to get my feet wet again, and I wanted to share. I guess I will remove the link.
Dawn said…
I will find a themed thursday layout later to attach it to. I'll make it work yet lol!

I'm sorry... I was just excited about getting a layout done.
Hummie B said…
If you want to post a link in the comments for those that are not for challenges on the blog or lessons, that would be okay
Hummie B said…
Bastet! I saw that on youtube! Thank you!
Patricia Rouse said…
The pages on this new layout are loading very very slowly for me. Is it something I am doing wrong, have to refresh sometimes to get a page back. Thanks for any suggestions.
Hummie B said…
The only thing I changed today was the banner. I'm not sure I like it. I may change it again. But I wanted to put the forum link in the smaller tab and the blog link on the bigger tab. It is just one image same size as before. It loads okay for me, but I'll check into it and compare sizes to the previous.
