Oh my goodness you guys, I don't think I had a full appreciation for the depth of my blogging habit until I lost my computer this week. With the gift of my iPad I could browse and even comment (sometimes) on other blogs, but I was getting some serious shakes without being able to upload photos and do some photoshop! However, the disk I was waiting for arrived from Apple and with after few more disasters and meltdowns, I am now completely up and running - mail, iPhoto and all! YIPEEE! (The photo above is actually a pretty lame version of my elation, but I couldn't find mad frenzied hysterical happiness + computer. Which is odd when you think about it...)
Anyway, my days spent gazing forlornly at the mailman were not all in vain. I had been offered a Poster Jack print a while ago and finally sent one off. I was thrilled when this one arrived in the mail!Posterjack.ca is a great Canadian company sponsoring tomorrow's Blog Podium conference, and they offer a ton of ways to display your photos - from matted and framed to canvases and even metal or birchwood prints. Since I had never seen anything done on wood I thought I would give that one a try, and picked one of my favourite beach shots to send.
HGTV.ca blog giveaway and I was thrilled when I opened it. I knew I had won one of the limited edition tea towels from The Bay, but didn't know which one. Imagine my elation to see that it was the (sold-out-impossible-to-get-your-hands-on) Alanna Cavanagh print!!
Tim at Design Maze did - his looks great, don't you think?
