Instagram here I come ...

It's been a LONG time coming ... but I'm getting there ...

Our daughter has been on Instagram (like most of the planet), but I've been putting it off ... too much to deal with blogs ... school ... making my creations ... photographing them ... listing on Etsy ...  listing on Zibbet .... arrrgh ... so much techno stuff !!!

But today, I got brave and with a LOT of  help from our 13 yr old, now have installed Instagram !!!

Be patient with me ... I'll probably post too much stuff to start with, but anyway, my even BIGGER achievement is that tonight I've finally (through searches, trial and error) have found out how to make sure Instagram is connected to my 'dkshopgirl' page on facebook instead of my personal page !!! wahooo !!

maybe there's hope for me after all ????  in this world of ever changing technology ...

Feel free to send me any tips you think I should know about !!!



dkshopgirl on instagram ... finally

Colour in anyone ???

... we just returned from a whirlwind trip away to pick up one of the kids from boarding school ... As usual there were a million jobs to do {ok, slight exaggeration} ... but I was in and out a lot of shops looking for bigger shoes, socks, clothes  {children seem to grow a LOT} ... a new iron {yuck but essential} ... and the list goes on ...

What I DID notice is that colouring in books for Adults seems to be a popular thing now ... have you seen them ??

flowers ... 

forests ... 



animals ... 
Check out this story about Millie Marotta's book here ... amazing craze!!


relaxing ... calming ... well that's how it's marketed anyway !  getting the picture?


... and it would appear lots of other countries are selling them by the truckload too ... 

guess which one I succumed to  ...   no prizes really  ~



Will be interested to see if it can 'de-stress' me when I'm having one of  'those' days ...

Feel free to post a comment if you've got one too!

~  happy colouring ~
