I am constantly saying, so forgive me if it’s too much, how Beautiful this State is! Well, this Fall has been AMAZING! I really am like a 6 year old discovering all the cool nature here! I see mushrooms and I say “COOL!” I found this whole mossy ecosystem growing on the side of a boulder, and I was just sooo happy!
on a fellow bloggers monthly “pix” contest! It really is a great feeling when people like and appreciate your art.
Flickr has been the most incredible thing for me lately. It is a photo sharing site online. (mentioned in previous post) That’s where I learned more about texturing, and get a lot of my inspiration. I have taught myself a lot, and I’m pretty proud of some of my work! If there was something I wanted to learn, I would Google it, and find a tutorial. There is A LOT to learn.
I am using Photoshop Elements, and that is where the ‘enhancing’ takes place. 🙂
My friend Anthony suggested that I make a book of my textured photos, so I have! When I get it, and see what it’s like, I’ll either make them available for sale, or start all over again! 🙂
I could go on and on about flowers, nature, photography, textures, Flickr and all of that for days, so I’ll just say, go see my photos if you get a chance, and feel free to comment on anything you like!
Now the phone is ringing again (Thank God) and I am getting busier at the salon as the holidays near.
I am doing many things to get busier. Connie and Jeanne are helping by introducing me to people in Lexington. Hopefully, I will soon be busy again in my new location.
Chris and I are headed to Beaufort for Thanksgiving, and will stay for a couple of days. I am Thankful for so many things. My health, and the health of my family and friends mostly.
Our dear friend Ann is battling cancer, and we are praying for her health, and comfort. I am thankful for my home and all the beauty that surrounds me. I am Thankful for my boyfriend and the love and support he gives me. And I am thankful for all that God has provided for me.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
One last thing…I’m coming back to CA in less than 3 weeks! WOO HOO! Get excited people! lol
I can’t wait to see many of you. Dec 9th to 16th.
Love you all!
