WOYWW 292 and a Giveaway

Hello Peeps,

I hope everyone has had a great start to 2015!  I'm joining the party that is called What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Our lovely hostess is Julia at  Stamping Ground.  People share their creative spaces and sometimes what they've been working on.

To celebrate 2015 I thought I'd host a giveaway.  I've made some calendars using my photos.  

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is:

1.  be a follower of this blog;
2.  leave a comment and tell me to put your name in the hat.
The winner will be announced next Wednesday.

My desk has been almost cleaned off (yay).  I have been making some calendars to send to friends and family.

I will visit those that end in the same number as me and also those that visit me (please leave your number).  Don't forget to let me know if you want to be part of the giveaway!

It's possible that I won't be around until the weekend so please be patient with me.

On another note (no pun intended), my netbook finally died.  I have a Toshiba Notebook that uses Chrome OS. Do any of you have a computer that runs on Chrome OS?  What photo editing software do you use?

Sorry, can't help you on the computer issues. I barely get by, and my Grandson had to help me over Christmas with my Blog issues. :) Nice that you are having a giveaway, but don't know how to follow you. I have tried that other times. Thank you for the peek. #59

Hello Kay. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment ---always appreciated. I have browsed your blog. Congratulations on selling your photos! That would make a girl happy for sure. :) I just did my very first craft fair this past November. It was a fun experience.
Thanks for sharing your workdesk too.

Hi Kay,

I didn't stop by for the giveaway, just to see what you (and your desk/table) were up to.

I've never used Chrome, being a Firefox gal myself. So I couldn't tell you what to use, but I use PhotoShop, a program I had to buy back in 2000. Don't do too much with it, except import my photos from my camera or scanner, but it's SO easy to use for those tasks.

Happy belated New Year and happy WOYWW from # 2.

Sorry Kay, I can't help you with your computer question.
Congratulations on having two of your photos published (I read your previous blog too).
Thanks for doing a giveaway. I'd love to be in it if you post to Europe.
Have a really good week and I hope having gone back to work isn't too taxing,

I have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to computers. Thankfully I have a 29yo son who doesn't mind getting distress calls from frantic mom trying to do something on the computer and not having a clue. LOL
Happy WOYWW!

Ps I would love one of those calendars, but the postal service in South Africa is so bad, it will only get here some time next year.

Happy Crafting!

Hi Kay, I too have been making calendars and I'd best remember to put them in the post soon or January will be February...mine are stamped but might just remember for next year to use photos. Have fun and thanks for visiting my desk RobynO#31

Sandee Setliff said...

Darn, I already bought my calenders for the year but I love your pictures so much! I will be envious of whoever wins it!

lisa said...

Hi Kay. What a lovely thing to do, a great way to start the new year. It's funny how people are so wary of random kindness isn't it.
You look very industrious there. Thanks for visiting me already, I am very late catching up this week.
Hugs Lisax #26

Good luck with sorting out the computer issue ! Crafty people are kind people I have always found good luck with your RAK

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

ahhh fun and smiled too at your Starbucks RAK ... sometimes think folks in world dont know much about RAK's it is a bloggie thing ..maybe wrong.
Cant help you on the software sorry as dont have a notebook..

If its me and need to know something, I spend an hour or so researching on the web and go to sites I trust ..

... it is a learning curve but it works I find happy WOYWW and thanks so much for popping over!

... every blessing of the LORD in 2015, Shaz in oz.x #24

Nikki C said...

Hey Kay
Just saw your post above wow how long that took to get someone to pick it up and so sweet of you to do that little Mystery Rak!!!
Have no clue what would work best for you with OS I'd google away and check out the reviews I'm sure your computer came with some type of free photo editing software ?
Have a wonderful day
hugs Nikki

I think that's a great idea about the calendars! I may even sell something like that in our gift shops!!! I think a lot of people would want to put their picture on a calendar poster. I almsot missed your giveaway! Glad i dropped by! Please put my name in the hat! Happy belated WOYWW! :^)) patsy
