Shabby Chic Mini Book - page for February 'Hearts'

I really have no idea what's going on with my blog at the moment.

I haven't altered any of the settings but my blog posts can only be made

under the old style editor, which after using the updated version is so frustrating.

Thanks for the comments and help given.

I have uploaded Mozilla Firefox, but can't see that it's helped?

I don't even know if it's loaded (although it did say 'installed') as at the top

of my screen it's still showing 'Windows Internet Explorer' even though

I set the Firefox as the default browser!

I really haven't a clue about all this.

Anyway, I don't know what this post is going to look like when published

(if it gets published at all that is!), but I shall stop moaning now and press on!

The photo at the top of this post is of a page I made for a

'Shabby Chic Mini Book' challenge

this is the page for February and the theme is 'Hearts'

I started off with a card base and machine stitched various strips of seam binding and ribbons onto it. I painted a heart shape in the centre with Gesso and machine stitched around the shape a few times. I added a few other hearts from old book text and scraps of fabric.

I stretched some sari ribbon across the back and machine stitched into place, leaving the scruffy edges showing at the front to add to the shabbiness of it.
Fingers crossed when I press 'publish post' in a moment, it'll work!

Beautiful books. Have looked at the sari ribbon before and thought about buying and now it's become a 'must-have'.

That's a lovely mini book page, Sherry. Makes me want to touch it (probably not a good idea as my fingers are covered in paint!)Blogger is a law unto itself. I now use Windows Live Writer to write, create and upload my blog posts. Except when I need to add something to the sidebar. Firefox much better browser than IE IMO.

This truly is a fabulously shabby chic booklet! Your hearts are gorgeous!! Best thing to do is start up Firefox directly, haven't experienced any problems so far... Good luck! Ira x
