Before & After

I have a new toy AND I have internet again! You know how it feels to go somewhere without your purse, wallet or cell phone? You feel kind of "naked". Something is wrong but you can't quite put your finger on it. Well that's how it has been around here for the last few weeks without the internet. Something just felt wrong. I couldn't even wash the dishes or do the laundry because I felt "off". No internet. Pull weeds, cook dinner - not tonight dear, we don't have internet.

Well after many calls to the cable company and many hours spent looking at all of my hodge-podge systems by a very patient neighbor-friend-computer guru, he got it up and running today! At lightening speeds too! Well not quite, but it does seem fast after not having any computer for almost two weeks. It just amazes me how attached you can get to technology.....not sure that's a good thing.

My new toy is learning how to create a color palette from my photo's with Photoshop. Which is way fun! You just make these little boxes and using your eyedropper tool, you sample a color in your photo and drop it in the box. It amazes me how intense the colors can be. Check it out....

I still have to work at get my margins even and maybe change them to white but for now, I am pretty excited about being creative with yummy colors!

Thoughts for a Monday Morning

people will forget what you did, 
but people will never forget 
how you made them feel.”
