Well now that Valentines Day is over and I have a chance to breath I noticed that I completely missed my 2 year blogaversary! I cannot believe it! 2 YEARS! When I retired 3 years ago who would have known I would every be blogging or even what a blog was?

I am so thankful I did start this blog. I have met such wonderful people and you have all inspired me in some way.

This image is my latest experiment done in Photoshop. I am finally catching on. This is an image using one of the filters in Photoshop. This one is called Stroke. I also used the paint brush to make her lips and the flowers in her hair pinker.

There is so many things to learn but I will keep learning and I am sharing my story in a place called Squidoo. The pages you make there are called Lenses. Go check out the Squidoo site at and read my lens on Photoshop Frustration. You can click on the SQUIDOO link here on my blog.

I have decided that since I am coming up on my 500th post I will wait to celebrate my blogaversary then. I will have to put on my thinking cap and come up with something really special.

Well happy blogaversary! I love your creation, but I am always partial to anything remotely old-fashioned looking. Someday I'll get that Photoshop program figured out...*sigh. I dabble in it from time to time, but you are way ahead of the game...everything looks great!

Did you ever receive your Valentine surprise from me? I didn't put a note in there, but I figured you would put one of the items to good use with your creations, I just thought they were cute!

Hugs ~
