What a Good Day!

Aside from not really doing a whole lot today, it's been a pretty goo day so far. I got word this morning that Ready, Set, Create is going to publish an altered clipboard I made for Brooke's Preschool Monthly Calendar. I got the reply in about one day from sending it to them! That's fast!

Then, later today, I got an email from Reminisce telling me that they would love to put my French Kitchen Recipe Box set on their online gallery! How exciting for me!!

I know not to get too overly excited about all this good news, because I've been let down by a DIFFERENT eZine just recently that said they wanted to publish something that I altered for one of their calls, but they never ended up putting it in the ezine after all. I never got a reply from them either when I asked them what happened. Not sure that I appreciate not even getting an "Oops, sorry about that..."

Enough about my prior disappointments (there will be many more, I'm sure) so I'm onto another topic - Photoshop Elements 6. I just purchased it & haven't had a lot of time to play with it too much, but it seems a little overwhelming for me & I'm not really stupid when it comes to computer programs, so I'm not sure what my problem is. I'm sure I just need a good nights sleep & a chance to read more about how it all works. I think maybe I've been out of the office workforce long enough that many things I've learned have left me over the past 6 years. I used to know how to make websites too, but don't ask me anything about it now! That is soooo sad too.

I found this cool website http://wordle.net/create I used it to make my Header for my blog here. I thought it was really neat. Now I don't know how to get that darn thing to load into my blog, so I ended up just printing it out & taking a photo of it & adding it that way. Kind of the long way around, but the other way wasn't working for me. Like I've said before....I'm blog challenged!

Well, DD is getting hungry for dinner. Doesn't she realize that I have internet things to do???? JK!!
