Oh, yes she did...


Darn right, I did.
Blogged twice in one day.
Must mean You-know-who is coming home and there will be other activities keeping me busy for a while.

You know, activities like cooking...and cleaning...and darning socks and such.  

Mmhmm...that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
  


So...
I've been experimenting with Photoshop and I must say, "WOW!"  What a difference it can make in a photo.  Given my technological handicaps and less than stellar photography skills, I'm amazed at what it can do.  Okay, okay, you all know this already.  I'm a little slow in the cool new stuff and gadgets department, but I must comment on it, simply because it's news to me. 

I'm boosting color and increasing exposure and contrast like crazy around here.  I'm especially fond of the effects toolbar that lets me see it in antique and sepia and black and white all at one time.

A little slice of heaven on earth.

By the way, the magazine in the photo above is one of my favorite publications.  It is published by Somerset Hill who has a number of really unique magazines that it puts out quarterly.  They're a little pricey, but worth every penny if they feature a favorite artist or two.

  "Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities."
(Frank Lloyd Wright)

Amen.

 
Stacks of lovely white color-boosted linen and computer faded florals.  



Even glitter looks better in high contrast.
It's the little things, really.




Now go ahead and do what the sign says.

Laugh it up.

Very cool pictures! I agree with you about the photo editing software. Ever since I discovered the Gimp (like Photoshop, only free), I've been editing pictures like crazy. It's amazing what you can do with this technology!

We sure miss you guys. Wish we could have seen you when we were up in Idaho last month. We really enjoyed seeing Eric and Alec.

How have you been? I LOVED the card! I've been trying to leave a comment for awhile, but my new computer surpasses my understanding in many ways. Then I remembered I can use our laptop, so here I am! How are the boys liking school? Is it working out for you and Alec to have more free time together? We are enjoying all the back to fall activities, though it's soooo busy.
