I can see the light!

Well, it’s that time of year again.  Only two more Mondays until SUMMER BREAK!

This post is going to be short and sweet because I am wiped out.  Lately, I’ve been trying to be more creative with my pictures on the blog (did you notice the custom background?  Yeah, it only took me like an hour to make something so simple).  I’ve been using picmonkey for pretty much everything, but last night I also decided to use Photovisi in combination with picmonkey.  This was the outcome:

I know that most of you are thinking this is no big deal, but for me, this was a huge accomplishment!  I really loved the finished product!  I was showing it to Daniel and exclaiming, “Look!  I could make our Christmas cards!  You know, if we actually sent Christmas cards.  Well, we did send them that one time, and then I bought more cards the next year and never sent them.  But if we DID send cards, I could make them!”  He wasn’t nearly as excited as I was, but he was impressed by my amazing, advanced technological skills.

I hope that y’all have a great Tuesday!  Much love!



My new discovery

Happy Wednesday, friends!  I hope you are all as excited as I am that tomorrow is Friday Eve!

I cannot tell you how frustrated I was last night that my lasagna pictures wouldn’t load onto my page (and that my post was deleted AGAIN).  I love my mac so much, but I truly miss Windows Live Writer!  Does anyone have a suggestion for something similar that I could use with m-swag to make my blogging life easier?

Since I was having some photo issues last night, I started looking for some cool photo options to use for the blog.  I knew picnik was closing down, but I didn’t really know where else to look.  Enter picmonkey.  I’m in love.  I also tried ipiccy and liked it too.  After exploring the features and editing some photos, I realized that I am about a million years behind all the other bloggers out there.  You can do some really amazing stuff through these completely free sites!  I know, this is probably not news to any of you, but it was a new discovery for me. 🙂  Better late than never, right?

While I was on my picture kick, I opted to try out a collage app as well.  What do y’all think?

Clockwise from top left: my mom and me in Florida a couple summers ago, my adorable cousins (aren’t they precious?!), Daniel and me in Cancun last summer, my family in Cancun over Christmas, and me with two of my sisters-in-law out celebrating a birthday last year.

Maybe one of these days I’ll start to get a handle on this whole blogging thing.  Maybe.

I hope you have an awesome day tomorrow!

So tell me…
