Famous Crocus

Here is the crocus that made me famous on Freshly Pressed … blooming and smiling at the sun!

Here is my unfamous attempt at adding the watermark to the photo!   I could spend hours on one little detail in Photoshop and walk away exhausted!   I am finding that taking frequent breaks is a good idea and returning to the drawing board fresh.

I was able to spend some time outside cleaning the yard – what a fantastic day!   Warm sun shining and I even saw a bug or two – who would have thought a bug or two could actually make you happy!

Wearing your Green today?   Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Home

As you can see … I am working with my new software Photoshop and as a couple of folks have mentioned – “this baby ain’t easy!”

ClassyRose created a wonderful blog post regarding Content Theft on the internet and steps to prevent this from happening to you.   I bookmarked the post and will review and I will be including this on my blogs in the future.   As I was working on the photos I looked into adding the copyright watermark which I have seen so many times on photos across the web.   I watched an easy tutorial at Photoshop and as you can see included one on the last photo.

oh…and the theme “Home” for the weekly challenge ……

Everyone should be Welcome Home!

Newest update: I now have Photoshop

I still consider myself to be in the learning stages with my Apple Mac and I am making it a habit to use it even for the simple searches or mail checks.   If I don’t use it I will never learn all the fantastic features it contains.   I did purchase the iWork when I first purchased the computer, so I have been dabbling around with iPhoto.   I reasoned to myself though if I am in this learning mode at present, I may as well throw more into the equation, so I now also have Adobe Photoshop.   I received the software yesterday along with the Missing Manual for it and am excited to dive in!

If you have been following along with the Post A Day challenge and my blog, you may have noticed my list of topics for each day is gone.   What I found happening was that I was trying to follow the outline of topics exactly and I was feeling pressed to come up with a new craft or tech idea to write about and, quite honestly, it wasn’t fun.   My topics were great and definitely part of what I do, but if you notice my posts have become more centered on photos, recipes and now with the gardening season upon us…much more gardening!

I still haven’t missed a day although there are gaps.   These are filled by my other blog GardenDish with gardening recipes which will become more frequent.   …and gosh, who knows where this new Photoshop will send me.   So like an evolving diary … my blog keeps learning and moving on to new facets in life.   The one underlying lesson I am taking away with this challenge is not to limit myself and to write about what I am passionate about – it is much more interesting.   Since that changes (almost weekly) you will never know what to expect next.   For now it’s ……. Gardening, Photos and some good ole’ healthy eating.

Thank you for your patience as I shift gears a bit.   One more note – it seems using the air card brings me back to prehistoric time and my computing is slow and although I can check in … there is not a whole lot of browsing and commenting I am able to do.    My trips and air card use will be on the increase and I can read most …. very slowly and very patiently.
