uploading issues

I had some success with photoshop...however, I can't get the photoshop file to upload.

This weekend was very fun!  I went on a retreat and did alot of quilting and visited a camp in SE Minnesota.....I loved the sign on the dumpster.

I used the Pioneer Womans tutorial for Photoshop....Ooohh it is so addictive!  Someday, I will get the picture up here, try, try, again.

good intentions

I had good intentions of taking pictures this weekend at our neighborhood party, but I didn't take one picture!  I take that back, I took pictures with Jen's I have to hound her for copies!!!

Today, I took my first Photoshop class at Apple!!!  It was so exciting.  I have go back, cause now I can't remember how to get a picture from iphoto to photoshop...oh the dilemmas!!  I learned to layer, desaturate, lasso and use the exciting!

I love this pic of my hubby & youngest.  Youngest has just started to look like dad's

big paws!

This dog has mighty big paws!  It's amazing, he is only 4 months old.  Last week we started training him on the hidden fence.  He gets it.  It is strange how different dogs respond to the correction.  He doesn't cry/yelp when he gets corrected, but slowly moves back. 
The tiles in this picture are 12x12....he is going to be huge.  He's a good puppy.

easy peasy

Yesterday, I looked at the pile of felted sweaters and decided it was time to do something with them.  Betz Whites book, Warm Fuzzies helped with some inspiration and techniques.  It turned out much better than I hoped!
Here it is laying on the living room floor.  After getting the squares cut, it was really simple.  While I was cutting the squares, I watched all the internet episodes of "Eli Stone" on  Just what I needed, another televisionshow to watch!

I am so excited!  All of these beads and a few others sold this weekend!  The Bead Bazaar was a lot of fun.
It was great to see all the guild members and people who stopped by.
Time to make more beads!

I am very excited, I had a little tutorial from Tanya (up there on the right) about how to do free motion quilting!!!  Can't wait to try it!!

39 & decisions

My love had a birthday...he is an April fool.  Did my in-laws need humor at that time?  My husband is the youngest of five...I think he provided much humor in everyones life!  Including mine.  Love you, honey!
I am trying to figure out how I want to tag my beads for the weekend.  I can't decide if I want to use colored paper or grey.  After looking at this picture, I think I might change the tags...
