Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Wednesday, 9 October 2013


Morning  -  a quick hello & share cos I've lots of DT colouring to do!
I'm loving what I'm doing of late and any excuse to colour is good.

Right dash over to Julia's Stamping Ground to join in and start your desk dashing tour across the world.

Okay rather than show you the usual pens/radio/pile of stamps cos tbh there isn't any change, my desk this morning is empty of anything going on apart from these that I set up and photographed and you guys are going to see the unedited/uncropped/as they are version cos that's what's on my desk - 

Yep Christmas cards again, this time using gorgeous stamps from Stampin'Up. I took these using my phone cos I've discovered the joys of using Dropbox. Take pics on phone, add to dropbox on said phone, then cos I've got Dropbox on puter, pictures magically appear on puter without me connecting any leads! Obviously this kind of thing has existed for a while but I've just found it and I'm rather thrilled and excited by the prospect of it! That internet/wifi thing is pretty cool at times.

Right time to drink my coffee and get colouring! See you all later.
Take care Zo xx

Happy WOYWW. Beautiful colouring. I take all my photos with my phone at the moment (keep saying I am going to learn to use hubby's 'proper' camera, but never get round to it!) and got a new one on order (Samsung Note, with a pen so I can draw on it etc). Dropbox is brilliant - must update mine. Ali x #45

Hi Zoe, funny you mentioning Dropbox, Hubby discovered it a few weeks ago, just as I discovered Evernote. Its exactly the same sort of thing, its ace, isn't it? Love your cards, still in awe of your colouring skills. Have a good week, Hugs, Shaz #31 xx

Thanks for visiting already.

Hi Zoe
Oo I must get drop box on the laptop, I have it on my phone since the up date but didn't know exactly what it was..... now I know it could be easier although I take the card out of my camera and put it directly in the laptop. One thing can you turn the picture around? your gorgeous poinsettia is the sideways.
thanks for offering to look at my shop, please pass the link onto anyone you think may be interested, I don't know if I will even sell anything I just thought I would give it a try, but it is very time consuming.
happy wednesday

Very pretty poinsiettas! Dropbox surely has it's benefits! And the camera of your phone seems very good, so that makes it ofcourse a very easy decision about what to use. No more cables!

Lovely poinsettia stamp, thought it was Stampin' up as soon as I looked at it. My oh my, get you being all techy and geeky!! I'll stick with the leads for now I have enough trouble getting that to work (did manage to figure out the scanner the other day......) Happy WOYWW Cindy

Hi Zoe

I have dropbox on my phone but not a clue what it was for so perhaps I need to get my son to help me with that
Happy WOYWW and wishing you a great week

Lovely cards. I'll have to check into this Dropbox thing. Brigita #103

Elizabeth said...

Hi Zoe, that poinsettia is a real wow of a stamp. The sentiment is a lovely one too. Call me a tech-idiot but I have absolutely no idea what Dropbox is, or whether I have it on my phone - must check it out :) Thanks for your earlier visit. Hope you have a good week. Elizabeth x #41
