Thank You Rainey!


My Story
Until January of this year, I've never had high speed internet service, owned or used a digital camera, or blogged. We've spent the last four years dedicating ourselves to a frugal lifestyle. Although we are still as dedicated as ever to that lifestyle, we've completely paid down all of our debt and now can enjoy having a few things like high speed internet. Even though I do miss paying only $8.95 per month for dial up internet, I don't miss how excruciatingly slow it was. I soon discovered how to create my own blog for free, FREE, my favorite price! And I found a digital camera on sale at Target to use for my new blog. OK, I don't know who they hire to write those instructions they include with their cameras, but it's not someone who understands how to explain technology to me. It took me hours of reading the instructions over and over, to figure out how to transfer my digital pictures onto my computer then onto my blog. I became frustrated and took a break and turned on the TV. Just around that same time there was a camera commercial out on TV which showed a little four year old girl skipping over to her laptop computer and downloading pictures off of her digital camera within seconds! I had to laugh. Then back to my computer and I had to experiment until I found the edit button which the camera instructions never indicated. Since then I've been so happily blogging and being a part of blogland! One thing that I've been noticing all over blogland are those beautiful mosaic pictures everyone except me, seems to know how to make. With my very limited techno skills, I've been trying for about a month to unsuccessfully figure out how to make one. Then on Metamorphosis Monday, I visited Rainey @ Really Rainey and saw her beautiful mosaic she made and learned about Mary @Little Red House and her Mosaic Monday. I mentioned to Rainey that I was trying to learn how to make a mosaic. She so kindly and graciously offered to help me learn how to make a mosaic. I explained my severe lack of techno skills to her, so she would know what she was getting herself into, but she wasn't detoured and proceeded to help me anyway. With her great way of explaining things, I was soon able to make and email her my first mosaic. Thanks Rainey! :O)

Hey Mary, The mosaic at the top of this post caught my eye, its so beautiful, and when I saw my name by it... I knew it was my STAR student! Where you possibly lack some technical skills you make it for it with determination and a strong will to learn! I love that about you... That and the "Spark" in your soul that I could feel all the way to Arizona! You really only need the directions and you are roaring to go! That's why I took the time and wrote down the step by step directions and sent you to a great mosaic making place. It was my pleasure helping you...

And now look! I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!
You are very welcome Mary
Have fun!
~Rainey~

Oh, this is such a wonderful mosaic! And Rainey is such a sweetie and a wonderful teacher. Your photos are lovely -- I can really feel how much you must love the ocean and the beach. I hope you will join Mosaic Monday next week. :)
xoxo,
Mary

Mary, I loved reading about your story and how Rainey helped and inspired you with your blog...I too am for the most part self taught and have learned the ropes on my own. Have been blogging a little over a month and love it. Posted my first ever Tablescape and had a great time with that too. Stop in for a visit.. God Bless ~Kathy~ @ sweetup-northmornings.blogspot.com
