Something New

Happy Tuesday to all!  Well, we survived the first week of school and are on to the second week.  The routine is getting a little easier now.  It has been a challenge keeping up with everything the kids have to get/do and all the paperwork - oohhh the paperwork - ugh!  That was a pain, especially for Kaylee.  One day I spent 3 hours - I'm not kidding - 3 hours doing paperwork for Kaylee's school.  I felt like they had sent ME back to school - rofl!

On a totally different note, I wanted to share something new that I found I could do.  My sweet friend and neighbor, Risa, had an old and pretty beat up photograph that meant a lot to someone in her family.  She wanted to see if I could do anything to maybe restore it, even if it was just a little bit.  I got to working on it and all that digital design work paid off in a totally new and unexpected way.  I have to say that I was pretty surprised at what I was able to do with it.  I know it's not perfect, but I would like to show it to you. 

It was a fun challenge, but not something I think I'd want to do everyday - hehe.  Pretty interesting though, at least I thought so.  :)

Well, I'm off to finish crocheting a hat and try to get a jog in (if it's not too hot) before I go pick up the kiddos. 

~til next time,

Paula... WOW that is so amazing how you have transformed the tatty pic to the perfect pic. Your neighbour should be blown away with the result. It must have taken you so many hours perfecting it. I have tried a little working with pics to fix, but give up in the end as I have not got the patience. It is so perfect. Congratulations on such a great job. from Jill in Victoria Australia, just roaming around on my computer and found you! so glad I did. :) xxx
