On Wednesday night my friends and I got together to do some crafting, eating, talking, laughing, and cooing at babies (there were 2 babies this time!) We had a lot of fun sharing ideas and inspiration and techniques with one another and I can’t wait to do it again. There was learning how to put in elastic for a skirt
And discussions on blogging ideas and picture editing programs
Here are some links to a few of these things that I learned last night:
Over at Blue Eyed Freckle there is a great tutorial on how to put the elastic into a skirt. The pictures are good and the results are adorable!
Also over here at Made is a great overall skirt tutorial. Towards the bottom of the great photos are step by step instructions for the elastic but the whole tutorial is great!
My friend A informed me of this great photo editing software Lightroom by Adobe. It is a tad on the expensive side but I could see wanting to buy it at some point in the near future. There seems to be a lot more control with the photos and you can change a bunch of little things to tweak it just the way you want. I think I like the control aspect of it the most. Until then, I still like to use Picnik. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a great site where you can upload your photos and edit them. Well, that was a very informative craft Wednesday! Do you get together for crafty nights? What kinds of things do you bring/like to learn?
