Wow! is all I can say!!! There are so many AMAZING scrappers applying for the OPAAT Creative Team!!! This is really going to be a tough decision! I'm just having the best time looking at all the beautiful entries!! We are picking 4 ladies to join the design team. Those four new girls will be joining Julie & myself. This is a very NEW site and we wish that we could have more, but it's just not possible at this time.

Goofin' Around in Class!

I think I can safely say that last night I was the class clown!!! We went outside to play with filters. The lighting was perfect! It was about 6:30pm. We were all just goofin' off taking silly pictures of each other. The guy in the top middle photo is our teacher. He owns a camera shop and teaches this class for the Burbank Adult School. I affectionately refer to him as Papa Smurf! Come gotta see that! A little blue paint and some red tights!!! TOTALLY!

I was sooooo freakin hungry during class! I was trying to get the girls to leave early and go get something to eat, but nooooo... We stayed till the end! Argh...I get so antsy towards the end of class.... The class is 3hrs LONG! It could easily be 1 1/2 hours! I have to say that I did learn some stuff, but 3 freakin' hours!!! So, finally at 9 o'clock class was over and we went to McD's for something to eat! Yup, the most unhealthiest place on earth!!! But DAMN was it good!

The McD's Aftermath!!! I just love McD's regular cheese burgers!

iPod vs MP3 Jukebox

I've been spending a lot of time loading all my CD's on to my computer and reorganizing what's already on there. This is a HUGE undertaking and I didn't think it was going to be so time consuming! I've probably uploaded about 100 CD's over the past week alone.

I had an MP3 player that had music on an it and it was all jacked up! Most of the stuff was in the unknown file, there weren't any genre's listed...It was just a mess. That's when I started this project. I went back, opened everything in windows media player and added all the info.! Now every album is in is own folder with the artists name and a picture of the album cover shows on the folder! It's AWESOME! Also, all the tracks have ALL the info on them.

Now to the next delima! My MP3 player was not working and I took it back to Costco and I was going to order another one online. When I got to the store they had the new video iPod. I called my friend Capella and asked her about it cause she has one and she talked me in to gettin' it.... Well, when I got home and installed the iTunes software it wanted to convert all my files. this took forever!! Capella even come over cause I was o frustrated!!! It was duplicating songs and all kinds of things. When I put the songs on to the iPod there were some songs that were on there 2 or three times! So I'm going to return the iPod and get the Phillips MP3 Jukebox!

Yeah, the iPod plays Videos, but I'm really not gonna watch a movie on a 2 inch screen. So that is not a big deal to me. The MP3Jukebox also has FM radio tuner, voice recorder and it works off of windows media player so all that work I did organizing all my stuff will work with the Jukebox. It wasn't with the iPod. I would have had to add all the album covers in individually so that they would shoe on the iPod and I was not about to do that!
So it's buh bye i Pod, hello Jukebox!
