EXPECTATIONS

This is what my studio looked like after I had spent several days creating what I originally thought would be a tidy, couple-of-hours-project: a simple 5 x 7 promotional postcard.
On the other hand...I haven't been able to face the set-up of my new printer ever since it arrived last week, because setting up computer and internet-related devices always becomes a long, hideous nightmare for me. I was dreading going through that ordeal once again. But today I realized I had to tackle the printer, no matter what. After all, I couldn't just leave it in its box forever. If nothing else, it was in the way. (Notice that bulky box in the lower-left corner of my first photo?)
The results? I've now completed the printer set-up in less than an hour. With no complications whatsoever. Life continues to astonish me.

  3. Everything always takes longer than expected. One should plan a 1 hour task to take 24 hours just in case. haha

    1. And then there's the occasional exception where the 24-hour job takes 5 minutes!

  4. You'll love that Canon printer, Wendy, but the inks are pricey!

    1. I will like it a whole lot better than the epson 2800 which I've had for years, and which was so fussy about paper that it often would not feed or print ANY paper whatsoever! I finally couldn't stand it any more.
