Where have I been? Why, sitting right here on the couch! haaaaaaaaa
I haven't been here on the couch the whole time I've been missing from the blogosphere, but have been here plenty. I've been working on a Marie Otero workshop trying to learn Photoshop Elements and am THRILLED with the lessons. I was overwhelmed by all the options, at first, but Marie has videos that walk through every adjustment step by step and I have since spent hours working on making pics that are "just right." For instance, here's one with a little bit of a teaser for an upcoming blog hop...
In addition to this gorgeous ribbon, I've been in a fiber mode. While walking through Michael's a couple of weeks ago, I saw some pretty yarn and decided I should break out my crochet needles to make some Christmas gifts. Next thing I know, I'm spending a whole day making little crocheted flowers...for no reason!! I have no end result in sight, but really wanted to learn how to make little flowers. That little flower obsession may also show up in a blog hop soon. :)
In other life developments, I was hugely stressed out at work over some major civilian personnel actions and my dissatisfaction with the way the whole process works and since I didn't have anything nice to say about it, I couldn't really go writing about it. I still don't have much to say about it, but have come to some sort of peace with the fact that I'm just a tiny cog in a giant bureaucracy and will continue to advocate for taking care of people even if the decision-makers don't care to listen. :) And, then I will spend plenty of time at work investigating my retirement options! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Other than the stress of work, I survived the Thanksgiving holiday in spite of lots of hours logged in the car and on planes. It was wonderful to spend time with my family & out in Kansas with Curt's. I have more to report and photos to share, but I have to get busy on the project for the blog hop that's due in two days!! haaaaaa When did I become so completely last minute? Or, have I always been that way?
Hope you all are doing well and having fun since it can be a challenge with all that goes on during these frantic end-of-the-year weeks!! Even though the official day of thanks is over, I'm thankful for you...anyone who takes time to be creative and is willing to share!
