Any ideas???? ANYONE???

26 Oct

Hello  I am doing today’s post hoping to drum up some ideas.  How does a blog keep going?  I know I post my finished products, if I did a “HOW TO” tutorial, would anyone want to see that?

Is there anything I DO in particular, that you wonder…hmmm, I’d love to know HOW to do that?  Let me know…I would love to pass on info or talent..not that I feel I have MORE than the average person….but really, is there something I could do more of?

If I challenged, would anyone play along?  What do you all like for GIVEAWAYS?  Ok, I know I have only done 2.  I don’t have the money to put together PACKAGES and mail them off…Heaven knows, I have enough supplies to though!

Just please, if you are reading…let me know if you have any thoughts.


Upcoming EVENTS:

1)  Next week, I will be introducing you to a FABULOUS inspiration of MINE!!  Her name is Deena Ziegler.  I hope you will enjoy her as much as I do.  Without giving too much away…look forward to my post on MONDAY, as she will be my spotlight.  You will NOT be sorry!!

2) Christmas Cards…..ugh…NASTY WORDS for those of us who THINK they are going to make them….right?  Well coming up, I will demo my CHRISTMAS cards for this year and there will be a FREEBIE to go along.  So, you see?  I do have a FEW things up my sleeve.



Todays projects and Highlights

I love that even though I did not use this on a SUMMER, or BEACH page, the line still worked!  I have been moving ahead with my learning of Photoshop Elements.  Oh, how I want to take a PHOTOSHOP class at the college.  I even KNOW the teacher..but, I do not think it is my “SEASON” to take classes right now. (BOO HOO)

Here is a sample of my last self paced lesson.  Turning a photo B & W, have it look GOOD, and then keep something in COLOR!  I LOVE THIS!!!

This one is kind of cool..but I need to play around with the levels to get it just right.
