WOYWW - 5 May

   
Hi Everyone !!!

I really cannot believe that it is May already, we're nearly halfway through the year!!! Is it really that long since it was Christmas???

Anyway, it's Wednesday and time for WOYWW, here's mine:


 I'm just about to get stuck in colouring this super Digi Image from Cuddly Buddly.

Here's a couple of kitty piccies for those that need them LOL

Thomas doesn't look too happy, I think he spied all my House Mouse Stamps!!!  I really do need to find somewhere better to store these.



And a quickie of Pablo, he's pretending to be asleep - I can see him spying, can you ?!!!


Last week a few of you asked about my Photo Tent.  For those that live in the UK, they are available mail order from Maplins.  The photo below shows it in all it's glory, it does come with a camera stand which I don't use.  It is a great tool and it has really improved the quality of my photos.  The only problem is that the bulbs for the lamps are really difficult to get hold of.   I have broken one of mine and so now I use one of the lamps on one side and my daylight craft lamp on the other, it works fine but I do really need to get some spare bulbs.    
My other secret weapon when it comes to my photos is my editing software.  I use COREL Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.  It's fantastic. I really don't use it to its full potential, but it is great for straightening up my photos (mine usually look as though they were taken on the side of a very steep hill LOL).  I also use it to add my frame and my watermark too.   

Anyway, I think I've gone on long enough now - a gold star goes to all those who stayed 'til the end LOL !!!

I'm off for a nosy at all the other desks.  Feel free to join in - we all meet on a Wednesday at Julia's Blog - Stamping Ground

Hugs

You do such lovely work Penni. I LOVED snooping at your work space, very nice.

Great desk. It would be a little to well organised for me, but the cute cats save it! And your photos are great; thanks for sharing how you take them. But don't forget it's your eye and talent that really make them good!

Tonje said...

Great workspace and gorgeous cats! I love them!

Carmen said...

Love your cats - serious attitude! *g* That tent is a fabulous idea - no wonder your piccies are so great!

Paula Gale said...

Hi Penni - thanks for the visit... I love your collection of HM stamps - but love the boys even better than that - theyre never far away are they - bless... My middle moggy - Tiggy, always seems to come to me when I'm typing - she sits on my arm making it a bit difficult...

Anyway, as this is my first proper bloghop in over 2 weeks, I will have to come back and catch up with your other posts when i'm all up to date.

Love the photo booth thingy - very clever - and have to agree - you're photos are always great quality.

Take care

Paula x x x
