Every time we stopped at a pull-out, the view took our breath away. And every time we got out to take pictures, Katie popped into the front seat and sat looking extremely bored, with her front legs draped over the steering wheel! She reminded us of a tour guide we had while we were doing one of those "If it's Tuesday, we must be in Lucerne" bus tours around Europe.
Although I packed my Explore, the wifi at the campground was intermittent and the update confused the heck out of the internet connection! Fortunately, all was well when I got home and I have enjoyed playing with the flood fill feature. More on that later!
Also while we were away, Leo, part owner and co-developer of SVG Cuts, opened up a new site of his own called Dreaming Tree and offered a bundle of three amazing Halloween lanterns which, of course, I had to have!
The designs on the lanterns are amazing and cut with great accuracy. Leo has included a Supply List with the files which is very useful and he does have a video tutorial on the web site. I love the look of the printed vellum. Note to self - let it dry for a LONG time before cutting the pieces apart!
That said, I had a hard time gluing the pieces together because IMHO, the panel openings are too wide, and the supporting structure too thin. I had glue everywhere until I switched to my good old Zig pen! Nor do I like the closure at the top - it's hard to insert the last tab. Leo recommends a very cool set of LED lights that are remote controlled but these are over my budget, I'm afraid. I guess I'll reconcile myself to the fact that these are to be one time only decorations! Oh no! That means more crafting!!!!
I'm off to work on the other lanterns in the bundle. : ) Thanks for visiting with me today. : ) Christine
