vBlog #4 – Library Pocket Tutorial

I managed to get a quick video tutorial done this evening over on UStream (can’t upload to YouTube at the moment as they are doing maintenace work on the transfer facility).

I used Sid Silvertrail from Toodles and Binks and Copic Markers  – the full ingredients can be found over on the Toodles and Binks Blog .

Call me fickle, but I am getting a bit annoyed that I can’t seem to upload video on wordpress, and now that blogger seems to have resolved the annoying paragraph issue, I am thinking I might defect back to my blogger blog …. I will sleep on it for a bit though.

Library Pocket Tutorial

Hi all,

Earlier today I streamed live from the kitchen table on UStream, and made a library pocket.

As I had really told very few people I was planning to do it (in case I messed up – which I did quite a few times!) I decided I would record a tutorial for it tomorrow morning, and then do a live stream at 5 pm tomorrow again live from the kitchen table.

You can find the link etc. in the post below, but here’s a quick intro.

All you need to do is register log onto and search for “toodlesandbinks” and then watch away live, you can become a follower and I will schedule other live from the kitchen table streams over the coming weeks…’ll have to bear with me whilst I get the hang of operating the software, camera and talk and co-ordinate my usually non co-ordinated person around the whole thing….. still it should be a laugh and you could chat to me as well (if for no other reason than to laugh at me running in ever decreasing circles trying to cope with it all!!!

My Christmas Goodies Video

I had a quick try the other day using my new Logitech webcam and Ustream.  So here is a quick video of my Xmas Goodies.

I am just about to pop into my workshop to collect some bits and bobs and will then hopefully Ustream live at about 5.00 pm for half an hour or so if you’d like to join me at the Kitchen Table.

Merry Christmas Everyone

and a happy and prosperous New Year ahead.

I hope that Santa brought you lots of lovely goodies…. I know that I got such a lovey pile of crafting goodies – plus my Logitech Webcam for me videos in the coming year.  So much easier to show you all in an ad hoc fashion what I am up to than trying to remember to photograph/or not as the case may be, with all the pfaffing around that that takes.

I am going to try and do a quick haul from this morning as soon as the Rubbah Techno Elf has loaded up the software for me.

Don’t forget that the I Want It All Draw will take place over at Toodles and Binks Blog on 31st December when one lucky person that has commented/taken part in blog candy drawings in 2009 will win all of the current Toodles and Binks Stamps, plus Zoomz, Embossing Powder, some Buck Naked Chipboard and ribbons to kick start their 2010 crafting.  So if you haven’t left a comment make sure that you leave one before end of 31st December 2009 to get added into the draw.  Why not become a follower over their as well, because there is some really good stuff coming in 2010.

Lots of Christmas Hugs.
