Make your own iPhone ringtones!

Oooh, am I excited!  I love it when I figure out how to do something new on the computer!  Remember a while back when I was whining here that my favorite songs were mostly not available as iPhone ringtones on iTunes (for $2 each, no less)?  Well, I figured out how to make them by myself....even better.....for free!  Yay!  
The Mac computer has this software called "Garageband" that I assumed I'd never use.  I had even deleted the icon from my dock.  Well, I dug it up and had quite a fun time playing with it yesterday while the rest of the world was out power-shopping.  It was quite simple--you just click and drag tunes that you have downloaded into your iTunes library over to Garageband, then edit the part of the song that you want to be the ringtone.  Then just save it to iTunes as a ringtone.  Here is the site that explains what to do--just scroll down to "Garageband".
I had quite a time trying to decide what my work ringtone should be.  I think this one sums it up nicely!  hee hee!

Yes, I stayed home yesterday recovering from preparing the entire feast on Thursday!  Here is the lovely "before" picture of Petunia's 20 pound turkey!  (Why does it look so small in this picture?)  I spent 5 straight hours cooking in the kitchen.  Yay for leftovers!

I'm glad you figured out how to make ringtones. Apparently it's fairly simple ... Rob makes them all the time for us. That is how I got "careless whisperer" to be my ringtone ... haha!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving :)

I would never have figured that out! Was in Palm Beach for turkey day and discovered the shops in Hobe Sound!!! So fabulous!

I love making ringtones...though mine is a bit more complicated to make and involves 3 different programs, but still fun. :) Great looking turkey, I bet it was delicious!
