Istream Ustream We Allstream. . . .

 

Another wonderful thing that I have discovered lately is called Ustream. It’s sort of this mad mix of live video chat and YouTube videos. Once a week, Operation Write Home has an hour long program about their latest news and card making ideas. This is a great program – if you can’t catch it live, you can watch the recorded version later. (How convenient!) If you are lucky enough to catch the live shows, it’s a lot of fun, because you can chat with the other viewers, while the program is going on.

Here is an awesome use of “Ustream” in a complete sentence.  “I watched all of last weeks’ Ustream episodes on my laptop while my husband was watching NASCAR on the couch.”  - and yes, it was great quality time as well. We even shared a blanket.  :)

Here are a few handy links:

The Operation Write Home channel has a live show on Thursday nights at 7:30 MST.  This one is super fun – it includes segments like the reading of hero mail, and “Extreme Card Makeovers” which are always entertaining.

It’s A Colorful World channel has shows at various times that are announced – mostly by facebook or on the Stars & Stamps blog. These shows, by Sandy, focus more on tutorials and fun things to keep us card makers inspired and current with some of the latest tips and techniques.

Here is one of the latest shows by Sandy – it’s a tutorial about how to make this ruffle card. The tutorial shows are fun because you can find your list of supplies on the S&S blog before hand. Then you get to watch the show and make a card along with everyone else – then we can all post the cards back at S&S to share with each other. Genious! I love it. So here is my ruffle card. I went with Red White and Blue since Memorial Day is coming up at the end of the month. So……go Check out Ustream. You will love it too!!
