I’m feeling very bloggy today! After taking the incredibly informative online Photoshop Blogshop over the weekend, I feel armed with just enough knowledge to be dangerous.I also made a Target stop which is never good news for the purse strings. I did pick up a few fun things and to make my desk feel a little more “desky” [not a word I know].So let’s take a look at a few of my favorite things on my desk[top] today....more
My choice for today's Photo Friday picture actually has a double meaning related to the "Warmth" prompt. The first is obvious - flaming saganaki! - but the second is the "warm" memories I have of the occasion.
