My sister and I took our three-year-old cousin to Target on Saturday. Annie was very excited about Target- probably even more so that her two Target loving cousins. We perused the purses and shoes and then headed over to the toy department and made a beeline to the Barbie aisle. That's where I found this... Wow...

Deep Thoughts by Pamela Quigley

Spell check is a funny thing. I always proofread emails, letters and the like multiple times and thank goodness I do. Otherwise, I might not have caught the mistake of calling myself a strangler instead of a stranger. Stranglers are creepy.

Watch this

This is probably one of the best commercials I have ever seen.... but I'm touchy feely like that. I hope you like it as much as I did.

Some people are just awesome

Aww- doesn't that just warm your heart? No really, though....

Some people are just awesome. (I'm not going to name names because I don't want to embarrass anyone or leave anyone out.) This is just a little shout out to people who get "big sister protective" of me and my feelings, who believe in me when I sometimes have trouble believing in myself and the people who don't get upset when I ask them to unload the dishwasher and make me a milkshake (ok, maybe that one is easy to guess.) You are the people who really keep me going. You know who you are.

Thanks. It really means a lot to me. Here's one for you.

Loving Aperture

I understand that this post might not make a lot of sense to some people and for that I apologize but I am too pumped not to post.

I think I have a new favorite program. I love photography and I edit my own pictures in Photoshop CS2. My husband (always encouraging me) has asked me a few times about Aperture. I've played with it a few times at the Apple store but never really saw a point to own and use it myself. Until now. Apple recently released Aperture 2 and I am already in love with it!

It works with Photoshop- not as a replacement and the newest version has over 100 upgrades and new features. You can make basic edits in Aperture and then export the image to PS for finishing touches with filters, masks, etc. In Aperture, not only can you lift your edits from one image and then stamp it on another but also stores all of your camera settings and tags it to your image. (Apparently Adobe Bridge does that for RAW images but I've never used it.) I just think this is a huge asset for me. I've always had to write them down or get get over losing that information. No longer. Of course this is still a very new program for me and I'm still searching my way through all of its capabilities but I am so excited about what this means for my work. It will help manage my workflow, allow me to create books (instead of using blurb or a similar program) and save me a ton of time! I am seriously so excited- I feel like a 4 year-old at Christmas. Has anyone else used this program?
