Some Great News For Miss Tootsie

July 27, 2009

Well, today brought a nice surprise for Miss Tootsie. I had a phone call from her doctor telling me that her chemo appointments have been moved up again, this time to every seven weeks. So now that little glow of daylight at the end of the tunnel is beginning to shine a bit brighter. It has taken a long time (years) to get to this point, and considering that in the beginning we were told she would be on chemo for the rest of her life, this is fantabulous!!! As long as she stays in remission, this is the beginning of the end of chemo.

Last night, I got a spurt of design energy, and finished up a new kit for the store. This one is called "Tomboy" and will be available August 1. I will have a preview and a sampler for you in a few days.

I have started using brushes more often to design the paper backgrounds. They are quite interesting and fun to use. Why have I not tried this before? Duh! The shapes are also fun to use for creating objects and backgrounds. Maybe if I had a whole class on this program (Photoshop), I'd have gotten into these things earlier. Oh well, better late than never.

I think I need to study my camera manual a bit more, too. Every now and then, I somehow manage to change a setting without realizing it, and then my photos don't come out right. This morning I went outside around 6:30 to get some new photos, and after shooting for about 15 minutes, I checked to see how the pictures looked. You'll never guess! All my photos were in black and white. Well now, how did that happen?

So now it's back to the manual to figure out how to get the color back in the photo. There are days when my brains really scare me. Know what I mean? Like the Murphy's Laws days?

Enough of my babbling. I have a freebie kit for you called "Jasmine." I gave you the QP quite a while ago, but not the kit. So enjoy, and y'all have a great day.

Hugs, Edna B.


And here are your download links for "Jasmine"
