Try Walking In My Shoes

lbpumps0002_500It’s no fun walking in someone else’s shoes but why do we want to sometimes?  I don’t normally wear pumps because they hurt my feet like crazy and they make me feel miserable if I have to wear them.  I prefer my very old and comfy pair of Dansko clogs or sandles to heels anytime.  Yet, I find myself drawn to the heels section at a shoe shop.

Here is a blog hop freebie in celebration of iNSD (International Scrapbooking Day) which is tomorrow, May 4th.  Create whatever you want with it.

It’s Been Awhile + Free Photoshop Actions

Kylie finally learned to say “other” instead of “udder.”  It took me drawing her a cow with an udder and explaining that an udder is where milk comes from.  Milk that she loves to drink.  I guess I could have Googled an image of a cow.  Not sure why I didn’t think of that. Well, my drawing worked so it’s all good.  I thought about taking a photo of the drawing and posting it but after looking at one of the images I drew of a hand squeezing milk from an udder, I don’t think it would be appropriate.

Kida.  She’s happy as always except when I get on her bad side.  She picked an argument with me earlier this week.  Can’t remember why but it’s becoming a norm.  She still hugs me and tells me she loves me though.  I think it’s just growing pains.  She loves to do her British accent on me.  A couple of days ago, I spoke in a British accent (just to show I could do it too) and she told me to stop because I was terrible.  She was so mad about it too.  LOL!!!  Btw, Kida and I both love British accents so it isn’t to poke fun but to try speaking the accent we love.

I’m loving this autumn weather.  It is a wonderful change from the summer heat.  Not sure if I’m ready for snow yet but I heard we already have snow in the mountains at around 12K feet.

Autumn Serene Actions – Free

In the two photos above, I used actions created in Photoshop.  They are very simple actions to create a soft autumn feel (and my first set too!).  If you would like to use it, you can download by clicking on the image below.  More info can be found on my design blog, here.

Jewelry Brochure & Faith Art Journal Freebie

I wasn’t planning on blogging today but last evening my sister mailed me the finished brochure she and I worked on for one of her friend’s new jewelry store and I was just so excited to see the finished product that I wanted to share it.

My sister did the consulting and I was the photographer and graphic artist behind the brochure.

I’m very happy at how lovely it turned out.  I’m also grateful that my sister’s friend, Gabriela, allowed me to take all the photos, edit them, create the graphics, and the brochure (excluding printing).  Gabriela came over my house quite a few times with her beautiful jewelry to photo and even brought over pastries for my family!  She is a wonderfully sweet and kind person.

Gabriela’s website is currently in the works but I hope you’ll stop by her site soon and take a look at her jewelry.  She also has a showroom where she’ll showcase her jewelry in Colorado.
