Remember that box of letters from the late 1800's that I found at the flea market in November? Well, I started playing with my new printer (my birthday/Christmas present from Santa Baby and layered a few other photos over one of the old letters...
I am such a novice at photography and my free photoshop program... but it is fun to be a little creative...and I think they look interesting...kind of pretty... ...what do you think...are you laughing at me?
Perhaps if I print them out...I could use them for backgrounds for other art projects... ...you know all those projects I'm going to get to in 2010! Any suggestions?
I have a lot to learn and hope to take some art classes and learn new skills this coming year! ...yes, I hope to do that and also I hope to get more organized...to clean out, get rid of stuff ... ...and also...I am determined to live healthier, to start exercising faithfully...to lose 20 pounds... ...and I hope to be a better listener, a better wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend....
Just a few things I'm hoping to accomplish in 2010... ...thought I'd mention that.
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
