After yet an other busy day, full of elderly ladies, four year olds and too much driving, I rushed in and after grabbing a cup of tea I checked my emails. My head was still going at a thousand miles an hour, stuffed with too many thoughts...yep, I was in overload again. I felt like I was hovering about 6 inches above the ground and was still waiting for touch down.
I noticed that my lovely hubby had sent me an email telling me he had done some of the chores before going to work. What a sweetie!!! This deserved a thank you...so I sent him an email telling him how great he had been and thanks. But, me being me I didn't stop there. I told him a little about my day and that I had bought Charlie (the dog) yet an other new dog bed, but I wasn't sure if Charlie liked it as it was chasing around the room (as if hubby cared at that moment in time, lol).
I was really surprised to get an email back asking me if it was "a real one". What a real dog's bed? What did he think I had bought him a Puppy playhouse? I read it twice and couldn't make any sense of it. I must have missed something in his first email. So I checked his and then my answering email.
And yes...I had done it again. Here's what I had sent to him:
"I got the dog an other dog and he is chasing it around the dinning room at the moment in his usual insane manner. Could mean he likes it..or it could be he's trying to hide it, lol."
Missed out the little word bed and almost gave him a heart attack!! Poor long suffering man thought I had brought home an other waif or stray. I need to slow down and take more care!!
Okay, now something sensible and I'll try to keep the typos to a minimum here, lol.
One of the hardest things I've done recently was trying to remember all the twists and turns of Photoshop CS2 and as if that wasn't enough I tried to take in CS6 too. It took time and a lot of my hair! I am so glad that I was alone whilst I struggled to do the simplest of things. Scream? Me? Of course I did, very loudly and without restraint. But you know me.....never give up, just smack the keyboard, thump the screen and hang in there. My attempts resulted in frustration, disasters and believe me, some really hilarious results, but I can now say that Photoshop and I have become friends again. Well, at least until my next "how do you do that" moment.
I did find a positive in my battle to tame the pesky software, it made me think what I really wanted to design and what was my style. I have to admit that I'm still searching to redefine my style, it's definitely a "work in progress". But from little acorns great oaks grow, so I'm hoping that a "me style" will develop as I work. If it doesn't then I'll just enjoy the journey of working with Photoshop and see what inspiration comes along.
One of my efforts whilst playing was a flower. I made the flower and took great care that I started by making quality control a high priority. I hope I succeeded!!!
Anyway....I have decided to share my little doodle flower with any of you lovely people that feel you could use it. I have included a brush with the flower to make it just a little more versatile. I hope someone can find them a home.
You can download them from two places:
by clicking on the preview above (4shared) or here (Dropbox).
They should both be direct downloads...should, but your talking about a woman who can't write an email without inflicting panic, lol.
Any problems with the links please let me know, again it's my first attempt for so long...I hope I haven't screwed them up!!
Have a great day and take care! See you soon.
