Showcase your work in “Vintage Video”!


My gentle readers, I’m initiating a fun, unique blog party.   Called ‘Vintage Video’, I hope you’ll link up and join me and your favorite bloggers in a seasonal video feature!

No video is necessary -- just a picture of your latest work or blog post!



I made a video with my dorky little camcorder, but the software I have access to makes nice transitions.   My hope is you’ll send in still pictures or videos related to the season’s theme until I close the Linky in a week, and then I’ll insert them in the video and post it.   The video will be available for viewing forever.   I plan to do Valentine’s, summer flowers, fall stuff, and the holidays.

Videos should be emailed to me here.   Please limit to 30 seconds so everyone gets a chance.

Tips:

Want your name, blog, and blog URL to show on your photo or video?   You must write it on with Photoshop, Paint, or other software.

The software crops vertical pictures very heavily.   Horizontally oriented ones work better.

This season’s theme is ‘A Winter White Valentine’s Day’.   You could send in something you made, or bought, or restored, anything related to the theme.   I’d love to share what you do.

Don’t be shy!  Link up!  And, kindly leave a courtesy link to the post if you have a blog.
Until next time, stay shabby!

Dearest Sandy,

Admiring your accomplishments and I must admit that you are far ahead of me. We have not even learned how to upload from our video... One day if time permits!
Lots of love,

Mariette

Sandy, you're too cute! I think you need your own t.v. show.
I have no idea how to do a video, and I'm a tad camera shy, so I'm sorry for not linking up. All of your new Vintage items look wonderful, and your little dogs are adorable. xoxo tami

Sandy,
Your video is lovely and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's entries.
I would love to participate but feel a little lost at where to start. I received a Flip video camera for my birthday in January perhaps I'll eventually have the courage to post a video of my work (or myself-cringe).
Once again, thank you for including my card in your lovely vintage video.
