Montucky, Montan...

This is a mini-version of my last project. You can find more pics here
on my blog, Ricochet and Away!
I’d load more pics here, but honestly it takes forever!
I would really love for you all to check out the welted pocket I put on the reverse side and tell me what you think about it. I’m not sure if it’s really cute or maybe kinda silly-looking….

    Is that the Cosmo Bag from Amy Butler?

      That is my mini version of the Cosmo. I shunk it and took out the pleats. Good eye!

    I hope I’m not boring you with more MB and KB talk :-)

    The size of the image file (2MB, 100KB, etc) usually affects the image quality, but it also directly affects how much data needs to be uploaded to your blog site or to burdastyle… The bigger the image, the longer upload time. After the image is uploaded, though, the blog allows you to display the image at any size you want (stretch or shrink) – regardless of the image file size.

    Long story short, making your image files smaller will help you upload them faster. I know how annoying it can be to wait for the images to upload!

    Hi Rikka!

    As I commented on your blog, I love this bag – I love the teal and the flower design, as well as the welt pocket that can’t be seen here :-)

    As for uploading pictures, what file size are your images? Maybe they are too large (for example, 2MB). Do you use “picasa”? It’s very convenient – you can edit the photos (crop, enhance) and then export them – they will be exported in a smaller file size (around 200 KB) which is lighter and faster to upload.

    BTW I love the verb you invented – “toting”! I definitely need a tote for toting…

      Hmmm, I never pay attention to KB and MB. My blog is 1000 pixels wide so I work within that dimension. I spend so much time editing pics for my blog, I run out of steam and patience by the time I make it over to burdastyle. I’m sure you’re correct about size being the issue here. Thanks for your help! And double thanks for your html help!
