An Update, A Layout and A Plug for the Genealogy Community!

It's been a while, so I thought I would post a quick update on this blog. A couple of weeks ago I got a new computer. The old computer was just slowly grinding to a halt. Despite off-loading all my photos to an external drive, I was still running out of disk space and photoshop was really straining the resources of the relatively puny processor. So I found a pretty good deal and decided to go for it! I am loving Windows 7 - and the extra RAM and bigger hard drive. And photoshop is really humming along with the i5 processor! So all is good - it's just taking a while to reload all my programs. I'm kind of doing that on an as-needed basis.

Anyway, I had to test out the new system and what better way than to create a mini-scrap book kit! So I made a free mini that's available on my designsbyjmdt blog. And here's a layout I made with the kit.

If you'd like the kit, feel free to grab it. The download links are on my other blog.

Now in other news, I am making a concerted effort to become a more active blogger in the genealogy world. I started a genealogy blog back in 2008, but my posting on that blog has been very sporadic. So I recently joined Geneabloggers and am going to try posting based on their daily prompts at least a couple of times a week. If you are interested in genealogy or family history, check out my genealogy blog here. There is also a link to Geneabloggers on my genealogy blog if you'd like to check them out too.

That's about it for now. Till later.
