Effects…

I love how different effects can totally change the feel of a picture… I love how this one turned out in black and white… His eyes are delightful. But I also like how vibrant it is in color… Photoshop is magic people.  Magic. I love this one in the faded seventies look… Which of these […]

Designer Dog Breeds…

Designer dog breeds are of course all the rage.  I mean, who hasn’t heard of the Puggle or the Yorkipoo, the Goldendoodle or the Labradoodle?  Chances are, your neighbour has one.  Our neighbour has one.  She’s a Goldendoodle with the sweetest personality.  She’s adorable.  We ourselves for a short while had a small dog that […]

Only in Photoshop

Only in Photoshop can you go from this: to this: (Editing to add) Or from this: to this: Yeah.  That’s my definition of fun. The quality of these pictures isn’t so great because they were just taken in Photobooth on my computer but it’s still fun to play with them.

The Man Can Hula

So you know that a while back I decided that dadgummit (who made up that ridiculous word anyways?  It’s not something I ever say in real life but, dadgummit, I can’t help typing it for some reason), anyways, where was I?  Oh, right, DADGUMMIT I needed to do something about my arm loaves.  Well, I’m […]

Ree's Actions

Since the day she started her blog, I’ve loved Ree @ Confessions of a Pioneer Woman.  Though the face of her blog and the amount of readers she has, has changed drastically since way back then (for a while there her commenters were a cozy little group of about 10!  How quickly that changed!) she […]

Restoration

Before I start writing I want to first say thank you to everyone for the prayers on behalf of my Mother in Law and our family. We still don’t know just what is happening but we hear that she is breathing on her own which is a good sign. The Pastor is, by God’s grace […]

You'll just have to suffer it…

As you all know I love taking pictures.  I always have… albums and albums full of pictures from throughout my life prove this.  Ever since getting my camera back in late June I have been trying to learn as much as possible.  The same is true of how consumed I’ve been with photoshop ever since […]

Picture talk…

I’ve been going through a handful of old pictures and starting to upload them to my computer. A lot of them needed fixing due to over or under exposure. I thought you all might get a kick out of the string of Golden Retrievers throughout these pictures… The Rusty years…. The Shasta years… The Arthur […]

What's this??

Two posts in one day? You’d think I had spare time on my hands or something. Not really. Today we were just super efficient with school so I had extra time to post earlier today. Tonight I wanted to see what I could do in photoshop with some pictures I had taken last Summer on […]

More fun with Photoshop…

This is just me having fun with Photoshop after spending half of the day watching Photoshop tutorials on YouTube. Can I just say how much I love YouTube? I love it. A lot. It’s a beautiful thing. To coin a Reeism, I think I want to marry it and have its babies. Here is my […]

Oh my. What have we here?

Insert all sorts of shock and astonishment and curious looks here because I know that you didn’t really believe me when I told you how addictive Photoshop can be. Wipe that look off your face now and let’s get down to bidness. You know how when you’re really pregnant and your baby is turning all […]

Postcards from Nan

Well, you know me… I’m just sitting here at my desk piddling away with Photoshop. I took this photo at Lake Louise several weeks back. You know, before it was frozen solid. I love this picture. It really is one of my favorites yet. Tonight I turned it into a postcard. It’s for you. So, […]

Don't mind me…

I’m just tinkering with my new toy. Exhibit A: My kids cavorting like woodland elves through the forest of Kananaskis Country. Exhibit B: My silly niece decked out in leopard print. And a dangerously loud fuzzy hat that you might see in a Mardi Gras parade. Exhibit C: My dashing and available (or not available… […]
