Where were you on September 11th 2001? I think everyone remembers exactly where and what they were doing on that day. My husband and I had ridden our motorcycles to Winthrop, Wa and stayed in our favorite little cabin, Mountain View Chalets. We didn't turn the TV on that morning so when we went out to get on our bikes to ride home, the other visitors were talking and said to us "What a horrible day." And I remember saying, "What do you mean, it is a beautiful day?" So they filled us in and we couldn't believe what they were saying. So we went back in to the cabin and turned the TV on. The reception wasn't very good but we could see the towers falling, etc. All we wanted to do was go home, so we got on the bikes and left for home. It is still unbelievable in a way, that our country, where we feel so safe and secure could be attacked in this way.
A few days later a guy asked me to make a Persona theme so I did. At that point I didn't know much about Photoshop Elements so made a simple design.
Ground Zero Spirit
To change the subject, I told you about my bee sting on my last posting.
Well it turned out to be a very bad sting. I actually don't know if it was a bee or what it was. But I ended up at the Dr. getting the blisters drained. Actually it was 1 big blister by the time I went to the Dr. I still have to wear a dressing on it or I can't wear a shoe!
I have been busy working on fall designs and may do a few Halloween ones. It doesn't seem possible that Halloween is just around the corner. I see the candy aisles are full in the stores.
Morning Light on Jungle Waterfall
I thought the above design turned out real well although it isn't a fall design. Took a lot of time to add the trees, bird, clouds, etc. but it looks very tranquil, doesn't it?
There has been a big discussion on the Persona forum about copyrights. One designer thinks she can take any photo, wallpaper, etc. on line add a few birds to it and then copyright it! I can't believe she actually thinks she can do that. I do copyright a design or wallpaper that I have made from a totally blank canvas or from a photo I have personally taken.
School is in session again and I imagine there are a lot of Mom's out there that are breathing a sigh of relief. I can remember how excited the first day of school was for my kids. Myself, what I remember most about the first day of school was what I was gonna wear. For some reason that seemed awfully important! I imagine it is still the same out there.
Aspen Leaves Gold
Our weather has been superb. And is over 80° today and gonna get warmer. I love it, I can hang laundry out, the laundry is smaller because the pants are short and the sleeves are short or no sleeves. I hate wearing big bulky clothes and coats.
Have a great September if I don't get back on the blog again this month. But I am trying to do better!
