Santa drinks Starbucks!

Yes, really.

We’ve spotted Santa at Starbucks a few times while Mom and I were mall-walking. The first time it happened, I tried to double back and and nonchalantly shoot a picture with my Treo camera. However, he saw me through the window and waved. I was too embarrassed to bother with a picture and sheepishly [...]

I’m still behind with posts, so many pictures to sort through and and posts to proofread.

Meanwhile, I was finally able to merge my old Wordpress feed with FeedBurner. I had signed up for FB ages ago, but couldn’t find an easy solution at the time. ESCknits at Ravelry clued me in to FeedSmith. This plugin [...]

Both appear to be relatively young in development; I think ZenPhoto has [...]

Nearly there…

I’ve transferred all my pictures, and most of my posts. I still have about 37 posts and accompanying umpteen comments to transfer. Then I’ll finalize a new header and any last-minute tweaks. Fingers crossed, by this Sunday, I’ll make the final switch to WordPress. My URL will still be the same, but the feed URL [...]

Well… I’ve decided to install WP in a test folder to see if I can get everything moved over and setup to my liking. I gotta say that was the easiest installation ever, and I’ve tested various blog and CMS platforms during the past 3 years. Nice!!

Remember these Halloween treat bags I posted earlier? Turns out Nicole is right about the black bag being a cat! My mom and I couldn’t figure it out, I think because the lighting was pretty bad and it was all floppy. There’s a much better picture at the store’s website. Though I haven’t installed WordPress, I’ve [...]

Swap Fun and Classes

I’ve reverted the blog back to the default theme/skin. (July already!) If you’re registered here, you can change back to the blue theme by editing your account (the theme section is near the bottom). I’ll leave it there for a while. : )

SYAC Update

They’re finally done!
