This blog is a result of the spark my Aunt Martha ignited in me to CREATE! She said, "you must create is a gift and it would be a shame to waste it". "Two hours a day" she said...I balked. Does creating supper count? Stacks of brightly colored folded laundry? Nope. Trust me, I would LOVE to have two hours a day to create, and some days I have the time to, but mostly I find it hard to have two hours. However, I am committed to not waste the gift and the projects you see here are the product of my unleashed passion.

Photography and Totally Rad Actions

Photography! That has been the crux of my creative time over the last few weeks. It has been fun. Time consuming, but fun!

I am doing a project called Life 365, where I am taking a photo a day every day to journal a year in my life. I've been posting my pics over at Facebook, but here a few of my favorites:

And apparently that is all that scribefire will let me post right now, but you get the picture (pun intended!). I'm having a blast with the project and learning a bit more about photography in the process.

I'm really enjoying the ability to use actions in Photoshop. I recently discovered Totally Rad Actions and have been loving the free samples off their website and hopefully will someday be able to have the $ to purchase favorite is Boutwell's Magic Glasses which really makes photos pop! They're having a contest right now and giving away their new Photoshop plug-in "Dirty Pictures" which is an insane plug-in that adds TEXTURE to photos...FAST. Totally different interface than just running an action and incredible results. I want it! :o)
