Hello my dear friends!

I have sorted the problem - I am now paying 2,99$ a month for extra storage so that I can show you lovely photos of my desk!Thank you to all the lovely bloggers who came to my aid and helped me with this problem. I could have gone into Picasa web something and deleted loads of photos to make space but that would mean they would not be seen on my previous blog posts anymore....that didn't feel right although I doubt many people look at my old posts - still I do sometimes...I know my photos are quite big but I always think what is the point of putting photos on your blog if nobody can see what is on them! I think being a blog that is mostly about crafting photos are essential! So my dear ladies and gentlemen please keep enjoying my big photos! Ha, ha......
I hope you are all well and happy.....I am having back pains today....I went to visit my mom who had back pain and it looks like I "caught the bug" ( well not really as back pain isn't contageous) and am now walking around like if I was walking on eggs - huh not very nice!
Anyway I have decided to keep this short as my last few posts have been really long and our Queen Julia wants us to keep it short....he, he maybe I can save a few GB too.....
Soooo.....my desk - nothing crafty going on at the moment just a few new things dumped on there...the new Paperartsy stamps (I might have shown them before,  new Crafty indivuduals stamps....TH Christmas tinsel....a few new washi tapes - I really love the red and white stripy one...Slovene Christmas word stamps.....Artistic Stamper Christmas stamps....a new starry embossing folder.....

On the right hand side there is still a horrible mess which I am just unable to sort out at the moment....

My pile of Christmas cards is growing.....

Here is one of my latest cards - I used the starry embossimg folder - rubbed a silver ink pad over the embossed area and then added all the bits and bobs ( ribbon, stars....), the stamp is from a Hero Arts set....

 And now I have something lovely to show you....yesterday it came in the post - it is from Jozarty - a lovely angel..it is so detailed I just keep on looking at it as everytime I look I see something new....thank you Jo I am soooo happy! 

The angels name is Arella....and she is a lovely pink color - just for me.....

Have another look.....isn't she beautiful????


I have to go now and snoop around other desks while you snoop around mine!

Have a lovely day.....
Lots of hugs to all


  1. I think blogger uses flicker to store your images - give me a minute & I'll look things up and send you some links so you can delete some images and free up space,

  2. How do I delete photos from the Blogger Picasa Web Album?

    When I tried to upload some more photos to post onto my blog I got this message:

    "Whoops! You're out of space. You are currently using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos. Upgrade storage

    Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage that you purchase is shared between several Google products and is in addition to your free quota. Learn more"

    But, I don't know how to delete photos from the album as there are no obvious buttons and you can't right click. Also when I go into my Google account and through onto Picasa Web Albums it comes up as empty. How do I delete the photos so that I can upload more onto my blog, or is there another way around this without having to pay for storage? This is preventing me from uploading more blog posts so any help anyone can give me would be much appreciated please?!

    You should be able to log in at www.picasaweb.com with the same account information that you use to access your blog and find the links to edit and delete photos. You know, of course, that if you delete them from that album they will also disappear from your blog.

    There are other image hosting sites with free accounts such as photobucket and flickr. Inages hosted there can be linked by way of the uploader.

    Also, if you have a Google+ account associated with the blog, the way image storage is counted is different.

  3. or use this link

  4. Both Jo and I have had this message come up before but it seems to sort itself out cos I haven't removed anything and I can still keep adding pics.
    Fingers crossed it sorts itself out for you too.

  11. Gorgeous TH twine! Love all the colors. Good for you having a growing stack of completed cards. I've got two done so far. Sorry to hear of your back pain. Perhaps there are exercises your dr. could recommend? The ornament from Jo is really lovely -- enjoy her! :) Happy WOYWW from Laura (Bookworm) #108

  20. Lovely post Dolores - your card is beautiful. Now, your beautiful little "Jo" angel will soon be getting a friend - she is flying across the seas just now so look out for your postman!! x Jo

  21. Just left a comment and it disappeared - I'll try again. Your card is really beautiful and so is Jo's angel. Now, she will be getting a little friend soon so look out for your postman. Hope your back eases soon. x Jo

  22. So glad you got the problem sorted and I can see the desk! ;o) Lots of lovely stuff. The card is gorgeous and I am seeing a lot of the angels around all the desks. I was so sad to miss out (only just started blogging) I hope she does an angel swap next year as I would love to do it. Happy WOYWW xxx Laura #51

  23. Beautiful card, Beautiful Angel and in pink too. Sorry to hear about your back, pain is a horrible thing to live with, believe me i live with pain everyday and it isn't easy. I have had to learn coping skills over the years, not easy.

    Glad you sorted the blogger issue, I had it come up a while back but it went away again and hopefully stays away. LOL

    Happy WOYWW

  25. Hi I've been directed to your blog by the lovely Jo of Jozart, who responded in my blog comments to my plea exactly like yours - sudden attack of the Malignant Picassa Worm! I'm going to pay up and look happy, and also look at reducing my photos size at upload, hoping this doesn't mean I end up with tiny photos! Like you I think good sized photos are the making of my blog. Great answers!
