We're having a fantastic streak of great weather. The sun is shining this morning, and the weatherman promises us a couple more days of warm temperatures. No complaints from me. I love it!!
Yesterday, I worked an extra long shift, so I was not up to wrapping last night. I was just going to play on my laptop, but some prints that I had ordered came in the mail. So of course I brought out the frames that I had purchased and framed a few of the prints. For some reason, my least favorite print seems to be a favorite with everyone else. Go figure!
Now I have to figure out how to ship them. Because of the glass, I think I will let the local shipping store do the wrapping/packing for me. They know how to do it to keep the glass from breaking.
After supper, I tried my hand at making snow in Photoshop. The Queen Jester sent me a formula to make the snow, but I ended up with a heavy snow storm. I tried a couple more ways, and ended up with some snow that I could live with, except that it was supposed to be animated. The only animation that I ended up with was the "drats!" "duh!" "now why won't this work?" sort of stuff that was coming from me. I cleaned that up a bit for you. Here's my best shot at animated "but not moving yet" snow.
This is also a sneak peak at the December photo on my new calendar. Minus the falling snow. That one deer was simply fascinated with Tootsie who was having a wonderful time chatting with a little bird who wasn't prepared for all the snow. I'll try again later to see if I can get the snowflakes to actually move.
Now I want to do a bit packing so that I can mail out the rest of my boxes/packages on Monday. Plus, I need to go check the Christmas tree that Joe is putting up in the den. I have a box of candy canes that he can put on the tree. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
