Peat Pot Santas

In case you might be wondering, I have not touched Photoshop Elements yet....just too many irons in the fire.  It may even be a January project at the rate I'm going!  Happy Thanksgiving to all...........We get to go elsewhere for dinner tomorrow!  Yipeeee!

Photoshop Elements 8

Wow, I just bought myself a birthday present!  I am now the proud owner of Photoshop Elements 8 which I purchased at Costco for $49.95 with their coupon!  The regular price at Costco is $79.95 and probably close to $100.00 elsewhere.   My Yahoo group "Latest Trends in Mixed Media" is so helpful with these things.....everyone jumps in to help whenever you have a question or problem.   A great CD was included by Linda Sattgast  that appears to be the perfect tutorial.  I'm excited about learning so watch for me to post something soon!  If you are interested in the software, it's available for $49.95 for a while longer....ask for the coupon at the customer service counter if you didn't get one in the mail.  The CD from Linda is considered to be superior in helping in the learning curve.  Wish me luck!

Missing Stuff, Sketchbooks, and Blogging Without Obligation

Just can't figure out why my "Best Places To Visit" has disappeared from the right hand side of the page.  I can see it when I go behind the scenes but the actual blog doesn't show it anymore.  Boo hoo!  I did just put a link to a neat little video that CNN put out regarding sketchbooks.  I just completed one and haven't scanned it yet but eventually I'll post it here.  I got the idea from Roberta Schmidt (we just pretend we're 'cuzzins' since we share the same last name) because I fell in love with hers.  Mine has no rhyme or reason....just stuff I've collected forever and finally found it's home in the pages of the book. 
I'm blogging now WITHOUT OBLIGATION.  Such a great more pressure!
PS:  I just looked again and the "Best Places to Visit" is back!!!!
