This Little Piggy Went for a Walk…

30 04 2011

And her mother played with her camera!  Wait doesn’t that make me a sow????  Anyway, I decided to go for a walk because I still can’t figure this .COM to .ORG business out and I am still frustrated.  I got my kid to be my unwitting model and she is still a bit salty but I’m chalking that up to tween angst.  She is after all still grounded!  Please don’t ask! LOL

I came up with this in Photoscape and I must say that I am pretty pleased…

Photoscape is so darn fun.  Once I finished up this I thought about those scarves that I bought the other day at the Somali mall and the fact that I haven’t b/vlogged about it yet.  Thus the following .gif was born!  So yeah, all of the scarves you see here were purchased at Somali malls in Minneapolis.  I’m telling you these are the best deal in the TC!  $4 a piece and these babies are not small.  They are the big 40×40 size that the Somali women use with their hijab.

I hear you all saying that this has nothing to do with my blog, but really it does.  All this playing around in photoscape and playing around with my camera is going to help me bring you a better end product.  I promise I’m not giving up even if I don’t post as much as I did in the beginning.  I’m just getting my stuff together!  And with that, I’ll leave you with a money shot.

Just A Quick Check-In

Toiling away with a smile on my face!

Hey there!  You all are gonna see some changes going on here and tonight I am working on one of them.  I am taking down all my pictures and putting up watermarked ones in instead.  So while I’m not officially posting, I am working on the blog and that counts right?

I would love to have your opinions though, I am trying out three watermarks.  Can you all tell me which ones you like?  One has an outline and one doesn’t and one has a shadow effect.  To be honest, most of them don’t have the outline or shadow effect, the Shea Butter Tips post is the one with the outline, and this one has the shadow effect.    I am not that competent in my photo editing program so I just tried something different but then I kind of liked it.  I think there’s also a yellow one in there because the black wouldn’t show up.  Sorry to dissapoint those of you who are more eclectic but there will be no yellow watermark unless I can’t do any beter LOL

So please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
