Don't forget about my free tutorials! Plus my little WIP...

If you visit my blog regularly, you know I have my little tutorial shop
but you may not have noticed in my left side bar
I have a few free tutorials I've offered in the years past ~
They're easy and FUN!!

You can find my rag ball ornament tutorial HERE ~

And my mitten ornament tutorial HERE ~

OK. Seems I'm always trying to figure out
what Blogger is up to with our images....
I like clicking on images and saving them at their "real" size...
and sometimes it's much larger that what you see!

Here's what I've figured out now:
click on an image ~
you will be taken to a "slide show" type of window.
Then RIGHT click on the image and select "VIEW IMAGE" with a left click.
A new window will open.
You may even be able the left click the image again
and it will appear even larger!

THEN you can RIGHT click it and select SAVE IMAGE
and save it to your own computer.....
give it a try ~ I hope it works for you :)

I played with my bottle brush trees again!
I'm not quite finished with them...but I had to show you what
I've finished so far ~ this one is teeny tiny and will be
housed inside a vintage baby food jar!
The tree itself stands only about two inches tall ~

I don't even have the top screwed on all the way but you get
the idea of how it will look under glass. I still want to
add a few pieces of seam binding garland that has been split
and ringlet curled....

What do you think about these blue trees?
They are really beautiful in person!

My decorations?
Broken strands of vintage pearls...I just love them!

Thank you always for stopping by to see me!!
I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Hi Dawn,
Oh, your little trees are so beautiful with the pearls! And I have to tell you, I think you're genius at figuring out how to view pics in larger size. Thanks for letting us in on the secret! I've tried to 'pin' some of your photos on Pinterest, but when I click the 'pin' button, the current pics don't show. Do you have any hints?

sandra blanks said...

Hey Again Dawn,
Never mind about the 'pinning'...I just realized that I wasn't scrolling down far enough...duh.

Hi Dawn and I am definitely going to check out your tutorials and get some ideas for Christmas decorating. Because I live alone I let decorating go last year and I missed it so this year I am going to make an effort to go all out! I need to find some of those little bottle brush trees. I wonder if I could purchase real bottle brushes and cut them into tree shapes, then glue the bottoms into wood? I may have to give that a try! Thanks for all the terrific ideas.

I have the materials to make the mittens one fine day soon. The entire image thing is bugging me. I don't have the option to "view image" so your method doesn't work for me. Frustrating. I've been sizing all of my photos quite small as a result.

Ironstone and Pine said...

ooh Dawn,sooo pretty!! Need to ask, do you sell your tags? Those are so pretty and simple, i would love to find some!! :) hugs,devon

Amy said...
