Enjoying Nature

Oh how I love Arizona when the weather is right. Most of the time it's not right but we deal with it anyway. Today is pretty windy but it wasn't raining so I decided to go out and take a few photos of what's been happening in my yard over this 2 week storm. I thought I'd share with you a few photos.

 
This is my lemon tree. This thing was bare and ugly a month ago and now that I come outside to look, it greets me with all these wonderful lemons! I'm glad something good came of the rain.

  
These things are WEEDS! I KNOW they were not there a week ago! Even though they are grass killing fiends, they are kinda pretty.

 
These aren't from outside, but from my kitchen. My lovie likes to surprise me with flowers a lot and since I looove flowers, it makes me happy. These look so vintage and soft that I thought I'd change up the tone and saturation of the picture. Give it more of an old, worn feel.
Well, other than that, there's not much more to say for right now. I just though I'd share these photos with you. At least we are blessed to not have any damage from the storm as I'm sure many out there have been affected by this crazy weather. 

By the way...the winner of my giveaway has yet to respond to me. I'm going to give it a week and if she doesn't get to me then I will pick another winner from random. So, Dizzy, if you're out there.....email me!!

Ta ta.

One More Day!!

Hey everyone! one more day til the giveaway ends. So if you haven't yet signed up to be a follower, do so!! I added a follow widget so that no one has a problem signing up.

Today is my first day back at school. I'm starting the advanced Photoshop class tonight and I'm so excited! I can't wait just to get this schooling over and done with and get to the real fun of designing. I also have an online class for web page design. It's not something I thought I would be taking but since it's required for my degree I figure, why not. I have dreamweaver so that'll save some time and money. The only problem I think I'll have is that sincce it's an online course, I won't have a real person teaching me. I don't know if it will be hard but I guess I'm ready for it. Something accomplished is good for me.

Well, class is going to start but I will be back to update a little more. Toodleoo!

Don't forget to FOLLOW!

Loving My Computer!


Oh how I love, love, love my new computer. I started getting going on Photoshop and this is one of the digital collages I came up with. The girls create much contrast with the background. Let me know if you like it :)

Rainy Days


Good morning all! The past couple days have been super rainy here as you can see from the picture outside my studio window. I can't even park my car in the yard because of the puddles the rain created. Other than this awful weather I haven't been up to much other than buying my supplies for school. Which includes:
my new HP Pavilion,
my new Wacom Intuos4 Pro tablet,
my new Blackberry Bold, and Adobe CS4 Creative Suite. Whew, that was a lot. This may sound like much but I really do need it for my degree. Well, everything but the phone but still....heehee. Creatively, I haven't been up to much other than what I posted last time. Really I just wanted to come and show face for once. I hope to get blogging more since I have my new, fast computer :)

Off to the doctor's I go...I know he's gonna tell me I have bronchitis. Sigh.  Toodleoo.

Hello everyone. I just though I'd show some of the recent listings in my Etsy Shoppe. I absolutely adore those vintage earrings so whoever snags those is one lucky duck. The pillow thing is an aromatherapy pillow that I made. It has rice inside and it scented with lavender oil. It's soothing if you have a headache. All you gotta do it pop it in to microwave for 30 seconds and put it over your eyes.The other two are canvas art.

There's not much more for me to say...I'm a but anxious to get in bed since it's already 2:15 am! Editing pictures sure is time consuming. Can't wait to get my new pavilion!!

Ta ta for tonight.
