Gotta watch this!

Tuesday, September 18, 2007
I am not usually a fan of Survivor but I will definitely be watching this season. I was so excited to find out that it is being filmed in the province Kate is from in China (Jiangxi). I look forward to learning more about my daughter's birthplace and seeing the beautiful landscape. It starts this Thursday night!

I am working on Kate's videos (a few people have asked) but since I did not go to China...I need some help from my hubby identifying some photos. Also, I am still having trouble with the music. So, once Kate is healthy and sleeping I should have more time to work on them. I am still open to suggestions on how to get music on there. Everything I buy on-line is protected. I guess I have to go buy all the CD's?

  2. Kim,

    I too am looking forward to Survivor. Although Mia is from Hunan, it is only one province away.

    I wanted to ask-- where did you get crocs that fit Kate? Mia still wears a size 2 (moving slowly into size 3) and crocs are too big. Am I missing something or do they make them smaller?

    Thanks tons,

    Christy :)

  3. I can't do Survivor and since there is no commercial tv at Casa Layden ~ the only way I see it is if someone tapes it for me and I don't think people tape shows anymore, they tevo :D

    I can tell how to get the music :D Call me when you get the chance and I will share the secrete.

    Ladybug hugs,

  5. Kim,
    I will have to ask Chris if he knows what might be wrong with your music on the video.....he does our videos and he always buys the music online.....hmmmmm....

    I have yet to watch a Survivor....but I will probably not miss a minute of this series! Sophie is also from Jiangxi.

  6. Hey Kim, I am so excited! I am a big Survivor fan and the fact that it is in Jiangxi has me elated. I know it is going to make me sad when I see the wonder and beauty that we were only about 30 miles from and didn't get to see in person. But I can't wait to see more of Hannah's birth place too.
    Music- I burned the songs onto a CD and then downloaded them to my computer.... don't know if this will work for you but it might. I was using windows movie maker.
    Have a beautiful day...

  7. I can't wait to see the video when it's done. Can't help with the music though. I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to those things.

    Looking forward to survivor also.

  9. If it's not too late into the editing process...you may want to consider using www.onetruemedia.com instead of Windows Movie Player...I think it's extremely easy to use and free.

    They will publish to a movie for TV if you wish, or you can share with your friends through e-mail or the blog. I use it all the time and highly recommend it...very user-friendly. I had the best time putting together Leah's video.

    Link to check it out: http://www.onetruemedia.com/shared?p=1df4d7f3f176d61ee0b519&skin_id=0&utm_

    As far as music goes, it's complicated, but very doable. If you purchase music through itunes, you will have to burn it on to a CD and "rip" it on to your windows media player, you can download a .mpeg3 converter for free off the internet (search in google will bring up tons of free converters). From there you can be able to upload any song.

    If you burn a CD, it will just need to be also uploaded into a .mpeg3 converter.

    Hope this information helps you and others...ff you have further questions, just let me know.
