To Be Continued

So if you know me personally, you'll know how upset I am right now about my blog post not being up!  If you don't know me that well...I'm very upset.  I sometimes loose my mind and forget things...this time I remembered my video post, but when I went to my dad's on Friday, I failed to copy the compressed files to my removable disk!  I'm devastated..... so my videos yet again will not be posted tonight...BUT they will be posted on Monday night...fingers crossed :)

Stay inky my friend.

Extravaganza Recap Video One: Jewelry with Base & Bling


video 
Ok so during this process I've learned a few things.... I am NOT a techi person, lol.  Tamytha Jenkins you already knew that!  This is my very first video I've ever made myself...so you are getting the raw, uncut, blooper, whatever comes out of my mouth version, cause I don't think there would be any way I could edit the video!  I was able to push record and that was about it....after this video I decided to download it....the file size was to big for blogger and my software was unable to compress the file, so I drove to my dad's office Friday afternoon and had him compress the file for me.  Thank goodness for daddy...he saved the day, well at least the first video that is.   With the problems I had with this video, I stopped recording at that point...so my remaining videos will be available on Tuesday...I finished them this afternoon and I'll take them to my dad's office on Monday.   I apologize for any inconvenience...so check back for the following videos Tuesday, September 15Th at 9:00 p.m. (est):

As mentioned in the video, I have more jewelry using Base & Bling somewhere..... that I'd love to show you!   So I see a forth video coming soon...in the mean time here are pictures until I can find them.  Enjoy.  AND If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment :)
