Photos, Arbonne and Quick Bartering Between Friends ...

                

     My Friend Sheila is going home for a visit and asked if I would print some enlargements of a family photo for her to take with her. I said yes of course, she's one of my closest friends and does plenty for me, including giving Mandy a job in the Law Office where she works. BTW ... thanks for that Sheila, Mandy loves that job and she is loved back big time there. For that I am quite grateful. However ...

     When she asked for the photos, she left out the part about moving her family out of one photo and placing them into another, she also left out the part about needing them the next day, yep ... in less than 24 hours! I know, I know ... in some places you can get 1 hour service. Anyway ...

     The photos above are what she gave me to work with and the photo below, (the one that never really took place) is the one she got 4 enlargements of, overnight and on time. They are now with her on their way to Maryland. (BTW... the red eye was actually the most difficult part.)                                                               

      I did get some good Photo Shop practice out of the deal and I did get to spend a little time looking at their adorable faces (I love those faces). I also got an unexpected surprise ... a bottle of Arbonne Shampoo and Conditioner (I Loooove Arbonne Shampoo and Conditioner and she knew I was out.) At $22.00 abottle, I'd say we both made out OK in the world of quick bartering between friends.

     In other news ... there have been fewer entries here lately because we are soooo busy at work right now and I've got classes a few nights a week, where I get lot's of information I need to explore . I've also had less time for visiting your journals as well, I miss that and will be playing catch up as I can. (I have 266 unread alerts in my in box right now.)

                                       Meet my new butterfly with a window in his throat!

Wow, that was awesome.  I'm amazed.  I would have no idea how to do that but I think it's really cool.  What a great friend!

Get thee to reading!
Great job. You'll have to start working for the Republican spin machine. You are THAT good at fixing potential problems! LOL!

You did a great job with that photograph.  I would LOVE to learn the intracacies of photoshop.

It's easy to get behind quick.  A couple of weekends away put me a few hundred alerts in the hole.  I couldn't catch up...I had to delete a bunch.  But I'm staying with the current new posts now.

Ah! I see what you did...you cut out the family, mirrored them, lightened up the contrast and popped them in front of the fireplace. That does look MUCH better. It was a nice shot of the fireplace looking all Christmasy.

What a great job you did.  Must be great being able to do things like that but I do not think I have the patience nowadays and it takes longer to learn things the older you get.  Brilliant though
