Happy (Belated) Thanksgiving!

Hello all, just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I know it's a little late, but better late than never, and I hope that anybody reading this right now from someplace other than the US can take a moment to think of what they are grateful for in their lives. Because that is what the true meaning of this holiday is for us here.

I spent the holiday & weekend at my cousin's house, it was so nice to be under the same roof with several visiting family members for a while. A few years ago, when my aunt was diagnosed with cancer, we started a new family tradition. At the end of Thanksgiving dinner, each person at the table takes a turn to speak about one of the things they are grateful for... Usually once we each start talking, we keep on going with many things! This time around was hard for us as it was the second Thanksgiving without my aunt, and the holiday also fell on what would have been my aunt & uncle's wedding anniversary.... I'm so grateful for the family I do have, and everyone I was able to share the holiday with.

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead of you... Here's looking forward to December!

My printer is all set up...

...and waiting for me to use it! I had completely forgot to order some paper when I ordered the printer - duh, Christina, what else would I print on? - so while I'm waiting for that delivery, I've been trying to figure out how to use Photoshop. Not so easy for me. I don't understand layers, etc...yet. But I am determined to learn! Here's a pic of it's new home, that's a standard 8.5x11 page in it, see how it's dwarfed by the beast?

I haven't been working on any collages lately, so this afternoon I pasted a few quick pages together. Nothing special, kind of going through the motions - practice, I suppose.

Not much else to report. It's been a fast week & weekend, and I should be going to bed now to start it all over again. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and talk to you soon!


Good morning...'s me checking in after about a week! Sorry to have been gone for so long. I seriously don't know where the time went. Hope you all have been having fun while I was "away". Did you have a nice Halloween? I didn't do anything to celebrate it this year - does that make me totally uncreative? I think I'm in denial about it being November already....

I have a little confession, a full week ago my new printer was delivered, and I haven't done a thing with it yet. Well I actually had it sent to my parent's house - I wish my apartment complex would sign for my deliveries for me, but no - and it's still sitting at their home. I need to hurry up, so I can start using it! In anticipation of being able to print lovely photos at home, I've decided I really need to learn how to use Photoshop. So my good pictures can be great! Why do all those graphics and photo programs make me feel like an idiot? Need to conquer that already.

Here's to what I hope will be an educational week!
