Computer Stoooopid... & a Giveaway...

...cor blimey, yesterday was fun, it was lovely to meet so many peeps and I hope you enjoyed making those little rosebuds :O)) I did mention to a few peeps that I would have another couple of ATC's to giveaway this week... so... if you would like to see how I made them etc and leave a comment please click HERE to be magically transported to The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog... the draw will be happening there... so that's where to enter :O)) *however, like before, you know me, I lurve comments... and would it be greedy asking for a comment for me here too??? LOL* The winners will be announced on Thursday August 19th.




So... did you have a brill time yesterday and what did you buy? I bought... a bottle of Diet Coke from the machine... and that was it!!! Seriously, I am polishing my halo as I type you know... there are a few things that I would like but... I am waiting for the new stash from CHA to arrive... it may be a long wait but I can be patient... sometimes LOL




Anyways... I have a techy question... I am computer stooopid so you may be able to help me on this one... please don't laugh if it something really simple though... I started typing out this post... and my hand caught something on the laptop top itself... you know that little pad jobby that you move the thingy about with? *told you I was stooopid* Well, anyways... I don't use that cos I have a Mini Mousey thing instead... anyways... all of a sudden I am typing in large type... not just the post either, I have opened up another tab (hey, I can do that!) and the words on that page are massive too... like it has all been blown up... you know, like a large print book for old people... I no likey the large print... it is boggling me... so, if you know how I can get the page back to normal... please let me know! thanks! Hopefully one of you kind n clever peeps will know what I am waffling on about... anyways... I shall away to lay down... ooooouch the old back isn't half hurting today... but yesterday was worth it! TTFN

Hi Hels
You have some lovely embellishments on your fabulous tags. I especially love the top one. The circle tag and the square letters are so useful. Where did you find them?
Hope you managed to sort out your laptop problem!

Hey Hon-Hope Lynne's computer help solved your problem. Loving the ATC - gonna have to try those paper flowers - they look softer than the grunge and *dare I say* I think I like them BETTER than the grunge roses (*will I be struck down by the Duke?*) LOL. Hope the back doesn't rebel toooo much from yesterday's fun. Chat soon. Hugs ~ Els. xx

Can't help with the puter prob. I do it occasionally too and I've no idea how I manage to get out of it, Lol!

Just wanted to say how fab I think those ATCs are. Luurve the coffe coloured one but that's just because I luurve coffee!

Hugs
Lesley Xx

Helen said...

The ATC's are fab - I saw them in the flesh - and got one yesterday, so I won't be greedy and ask for another one!!
I am meant to be saving up for the new CHA stuff too, but it would have been impossible to go all that way and spend zilch!! Just impossible (you saw my bag - quite small for me... wait till Ally Pally, CHA stuff or not!)
I am no good with laptops unless I can plug in a mouse, just can't use the buttons!! Hope your back gets better soon, I was cream-crackered too!

Have you got windows 7? I have and if you put 2 fingers on the pad bit and move up with your fingers it enlarges and if you drag your fingers down it makes text smaller.
*hugs* Heather x

Heather x said...

ok I've just tested mine and fingers away makes smaller and finger towards makes bigger! I got it the wrong way around last time :)

Tracy Evans said...

Hi Hels, love these ATC' lovely rich colours and the roses are gorgeous as always. I have eventually got around to my Sunday Stamper piece too, took me ages to find a bottle of some sorts. Loved your piece for the Sunday Stamper piece, I will have a go at those flowers they look lovely. My entry for Sunday Stampers is here. Have a good day, Tracy x

Joanne said...

Really sorry your back is bad just now and hope the lay down helps. Now about these ATCs, just send one to me and I won't mention anything about you being a dopey computer user!!!!LOL.
Luv Joanne xx

If Lynne's solution has not worked you may have accidentally altered the zoom level on your web browser...bottom right corner where there is a plus sign and a percentage number...touch the little arrow next to it and alter the percentage...mine is usually on 100 percent if that helps
Great tag! :)

I am so glad I am not the only person who is not computer savvy ...I just yell for my son, except now he keeps putting his ear plugs in and turns up the music to drown out my shouts for help......thats kids for you, glad you had a good day and wasn't you restrained or was it that you was far to busy demoing...not sure if thats a word
