Blogger App

So while I'm sitting around waiting for the cabinet maker to arrive and finish off my kitchen, I thought I'd try this app, Blogger for iPad.

I'm already using Blogsy on my iPad which is a great app, but sometimes I just want to do a quick post and Blogsy being such a powerful app is sometimes a bit confusing for this poor old baby boomer brain.

And what's a post without photos? Slightly boring, so I'm going to give you a sneak peak of the kitchen progress.

A lot of progress has been made since this was taken and I've even filled up a few cupboards, but I'm still waiting on some cupboard doors and quite a few handles. The splash back has been tiled and I'm really pleased with how it looks. I was worried because when I got the tiles home I wasn't sure if I liked the colour that I chose, but thankfully they look great.

I have a feeling the big before and after reveal wont be until the new year.

We’ve Made A Start

Sunday we demolished the kitchen, pulled out cupboards, ripped off tiles and pretty much emptied it out.
Half empty.
Totally empty apart from the oven.

Plumber comes on Wednesday and hopefully the new kitchen gets installed on Thursday of Friday.
DH is none too happy about the renovation, he can’t understand why I would get rid of a “good solid kitchen”.  Well, so solid you needed brute strength to open some of the cupboards and drawers, also it was forty plus years old and very tired and in dire need of a complete face lift (me too!!!!).

Currently I’m making toast and boiling the kettle in the laundry, fridge, microwave and cutlery are in the lounge, most of the things from the cupboards are in the spare room and I’ve got dinner in the crockpot cooking in the other spare room and everything is covered in a fine layer of dust.

So while this has been going on nothing at all has been happening in my studio, I suspect there’s a fine layer of dust in there too. I have been playing on my iPad quite a bit though and having some fun with iPhoneography.
I used the Snapseed app and applied one of the filters.

This was the original photo.


The original.

Both of the original photos are of a pattern that I really liked on a quilt cover, so I snapped a few photos of it intending to perhaps do something similar on some clay. Don’t think that will happen until well after Christmas now.

My next post will be before and after photos of the kitchen I hope so stay tuned.
