It's all good

I started my day off well when I checked Holly's blog and discovered I was one of the lucky winners of the 'Get a Hobby!' book she was giving away. Holly ran a competition where you had to state what your dream hobby would be if you had all the time and money in the world. Mine was giving gifts to complete strangers. Wouldn't that be the best thing? And now Holly is doing just that to me and it feels great! Thank you so much Holly! And thank you so much to everyone who voted. I'm so excited. I'm like a little kid at Christmas time. Hurrah for that.

I have just been to see the best movie at the Latin American Film Festival called 7 Days (7 Dias). It's about U2, taking a punt, love, friendship and living life. Oh it was so good! My friend Andrea and I even did that gleeful little clapping thing you do when you watch a movie and are hap-hap-happy. Go see it!


It's Friday, it's fabulous, it's Frankie of course!

Have a fabulous weekend x

Yay for you, I won too! :-) I wanted to make elaborate pop up books. I even bought a book about how to make pop up books, but I haven't even looked at it yet. We're winners!

to graph your website you just have to make a screen shot of the picture on your screen. heres how: hold down "alt" and "prtscn". this will save the image to your clipboard. then go into microsoft paint or a similar application. click "edit" and then "paste". the image that you just saved should show up. then click 'file' then 'save as'. Then save the image as a 'GIF' file. That will put the picture in your picture folder. Then you might have to photoshop the imgae. But there you go! Hope this helps. Have a lovely weekend.
