I know I have not posted much lately but I did say nice weather less blogging ;P , I have been working on my swaps and working outside everyday..gardens are a lot of work but they are worth it in the long run.
Some of you may relate to my dilemma of being in the middle of nowhere are far as miniature groups go, I live it the shticks' and there are no groups, enthusiasts or dollhouse shops within 2 hours of me.
I had been kicking around this idea for a while now of creating a online miniature group that can utilize video. I thought of buying a licence for Skype since I use that for contact with a few friends over long distance but then I started to explore google + they also have a pretty interesting hangout option in where 9 people can "get together" as it where via video.
This of course can be used for those of us around the world in the corners of the planet ;) Time ratio depending since a few of us are day/night not just hours off.
I thought this could be used to share techniques, have a 2 week project in which we could all share photos and video. Meet ups 2 x a month maybe more.
I also found it interesting you could share your desktop in the video, so photos and possibly real time photoshop tutorials etc..
I have not worked out all the kinks, times, languages ;) but for the coming fall/winter months this might be something I will get into.
With new technology those of us across the globe can meet up and share ideas and keep our circle growing... even small ones :P
oh also ...I did a snail, I love snails..
