Friday-1:30pm--First blog video attempt was a failure :(
The first thing I discovered is that instead of showing up on the top of the blog like additional pictures do, the video jumped down to the bottom of the blog. It is still loading. I hope this works. :)
Yesterday my www.jetpens.com order from California arrived already! Even beat out my stamp order from USPS. When Leah and I had snooped thru the site at her place, Leah indicated she wanted to try the corner clips and the finger thingies (for sorting paper).
So Leah took home a couple of clips and a finger thingie. We tried the white pen--and it really is the nicest white I've seen for writing on colored paper. (I saw it recommended on a craft site.) It's a Signo uni-ball pen.
I planned to buy the Noodler's Red-Black ink bottle and a bottle of brown.
My splurge items--two more brands of brown inks.
We'll see if that ends my search for the perfect brown ink that flows well in a fountain pen--hehe!
Leah worked on the distressing. Finished the circles and got this far with the ovals! We should be able to finish up next Tuesday night, I think--tada!
I am still waiting for the video to finish uploading. Silly attempt to film Karma and my morning routine--highlight of Karma's day, her thrilling treat time. Hard to be fixing her canned food treat and filming at the same time--and the battery died just as I was bringing it to her in the pantry--hehe! Oh well--this is my first blog video. Warning (or threat?): if this works I just may do more personal videos just for the blog.
This is where the video was supposed to be the first time.
Those of you who have added videos to blogger before, is it normal to take a really long time to load them? It's already been over half an hour for like a 2 minute video? It says you can work on the blog while the video is loading. Anyone have any advice? Video wisdom to share? ;)
Well, I will just wait until it is finished (if it does) and then post this.
I have a quote that I actually heard on the TV show Parenthood! I thought it was so good I wrote it down.
"Life will knock you down more times than you can possibly imagine. Don't knock yourself down."
Adam to Amber on Parenthood
Well, this is ridiculous. Been 3 hours and it says it is still loading!! I am going to try a second time to upload it. No clue where it will end up on the blog--if it ever loads at all. *sigh* Maybe this wasn't a good idea.
Okay--been 4 1/2 hours this second time and it is now after 9pm. I guess I'll pass on the video and just post this. :( You are safe from silly blog videos, I guess.
