Mackenzie - My iMac

Yes, it's true! I have named my iMac, Mackenzie. Yes, I am getting more and more attached to her everyday, let's just hope that she doesn't let me down. I am still learning all of her tricks and hope to soon be proficient at her iMovies, Garage Band, and all the new graphics software I have installed on her! Here is a recent picture of her, only at just under two weeks old, hehehe!

Urban Threads

So, I am a digital designer for Top Line Creations and they just released a kit that I created today for their LifeTimez software. I designed the layouts and they added the photos. Photos are not what I would have chosen, but hey, that's ok!

I'm an iMac!


Sooooooo, we have been saving up to get me a new computer for a while now. With doing so much more digital scrapbook designing I needed something more powerful than my laptop. It was driving me crazy trying to design new papers or elements and it taking a good 2 minutes just to have one action do it's job!

NOW, I have a screaming iMac! Why an iMac you say? Well we have been told that it is the best computer you can have if you are a graphics designer!

WELLLLL, it's driving me nutz! So many years of being proficient on a PC and now with the iMac, all the shortcuts are different, the folders are different, the software is different! UGH!

Slowly I am getting used to it! I YOU HAVE AN iMAC and could give me a few tips, I welcome any comments on this post! LOL!

Here is my new baby.... well, she is a BIG baby, 24 inches, lol!
YES, the computer is INSIDE of the monitor! No tower to mess with, I could take this puppy to crops if I wanted to, lol!
