Hi! I’m Jeanie, a former family physician who is now a stay-at-home homeschooling mom with 3 daughters, ages 9, 9, and 6. My husband and I were foster parents for the past two years, and are have now adopted a lovely little girl (one of the 9-year olds) from Ghana, in West Africa. I thrive on your comments - so please leave me some feedback!
Hi, it's me again! Back with a freebie for you - here are tassels for personal or commercial use. As usual, they are png files created at 300 ppi, in 12 colors as well as in light and dark gray for recoloring. Drop shadows are for preview purposes only. I hope you enjoy them! Thank you for the nice comments on yesterday's tutorial - I'm glad it was useful even to some of you! When I use a grayscale item such as this, I like to use overlays to recolor it rather than the recoloring brush or color replacement. In this case, I use the color over the object by using the layer style to create a color overlay, selecting the color, then setting the blend mode of the color overlay to overlay (or sometimes, if I'm trying for a deeper color, I'll set it to color burn or play with other blend modes.) Have fun - I hope you enjoy them!
I had a pretty relaxing day today - I got to sleep in, then catch up on paperwork and phone calls while my parents took my girls to a "Mystery Science" class at the St. Louis Science Center. The class involved trying to solve a mystery from a mock crime scene - what fun!
I had a talk with Lydia's allergist today to let her know about her worsening nut reactions - turns out that based on more recent studies over the past few years, the allergist actually recommends giving the Epi-Pen for nut-allergic patients much earlier in the reaction now. Now, I'm supposed to give her the pen then go to the emergency room as soon as she has the first tiny hives after ingesting something that may have contained nuts! This is going to be a drastic change for us, as previously we had only been told to give Benadryl, observe her, and use the Epi-Pen only if her reaction became severe - i.e., trouble breathing! So, if any of you have nut-allergic children, or have nut allergies yourself, you might want to check with your allergist to see what their current recommendations are.
Well, that's no ordinary rabbit - that's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!
Anyone recognize these quotes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail? This is one bunny that might be worthy of a role in that movie! One of the funniest videos I've seen in a long time...I just had to share it with you.
I'll try to be back in a while with more digiscrap goodies for you...
