It is the most user friendly photo-editing program I have ever encountered. It makes sense to me, it is simple and flexible and highly user intuitive.
Which is good, because there is no more room in my brain or my day for dealing with Photoshop. I just don’t have it in me anymore. I am too fuzzy around the edges of my mind these days. But Picnik has brought some ease and happiness to my photo editing once again and I am so grateful for that, even if it is sort of a silly thing to be grateful for.
Besides my new obsession, I also have a confession I would like to share. I feel a green eyed monster rising up in me these days and I am not proud of her. I want to her to go back away, squish her back down.
Jealousy is not one of my bigger issues, but when she does take the time to make an appearance, boy does she make it!
Liz @ Mabel’s House is having a giveaway contest to name your Metabolism. I think we should have one to name our Green Eyed Monsters. What would mine be I wonder? Velma the Vicious? Ungrateful Gertie?
But despite the grass that I (AKA Velma) have been eyeing lately and thinking that it is greener/more popular /lovelier than my grass, I realize that it in fact is not greener grass, it is just different grass. And really, when I take a moment to breathe and count my blessings, I remember that I adore my grass & am proud of my grass even if it is currently covered with a ton of leaves. And I am very grateful and that alone puts Velma to rest most days.
To that end I would like to take this moment to thank several people who have “left their light on” for me so to speak and encouraged me lately. Please go visit their blogs and sites and encourage them too if you don’t mind. This time of year I think all of us can use a little extra attention and encouragement. Or is that just me and Velma?
So a BIG THANKS and HUGS to:
Cathy of Cathymacs Holiday Hamlet who came out on a Sunday with her sweet mother to visit my Shoppe and hug my neck! You made my day!
and last but not least I need to thank Jeanetta who is my loyal partner in craft crime
and who puts up with my crazy bouts of uncertainty and overcommitted–ness.
These are just a few of the people who have encouraged me lately, and I do not need to let Velma and her self-centered ways cause me to forget all these gals and so many more – like all of you who read my blog, who pass it on to others, who comment & who shop with me, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to each one of you for making each day a little brighter.
