long story short, i installed it all okay, just in a messy way. so i wiped it all out again. that took four hours.
today: daylight. the materials have been amassed, the instructions printed out, the pictures on the desktop for easy reference. and i am scared to try this new thing. this will last another hour or so, and then i'll dive in and do it.
and hey, i'm using locket sized images, about 200x200 pixels. if you have a picture you'd like to see on a really cool charm, you can point me to it on the web, or email it to me at email@example.com with the word "scout" in the subject line. and i will do my best to use it in the practice pieces, and if i use it and it comes out right and looking nice, i'll make you a bracelet to go with it. just because i don't want to use pictures of me.
