Hi all! I’m still coming down from my “vacation high” so the “creative juices” have not been flowing properly yet. Sorry, no project pictures today. lol… I spent a significant time yesterday on Picnik (boy am I going to really miss editing my photos in Picnik!!!). I was editing our vacation photos. It was fun, but very time-consuming. I wish that I had the self-control to just leave them alone, but I don’t. lol.. The above picture was taken on the beach in Monterey. I found this heart-shaped rock on the beach and picked it up because I thought it was so appropriate to find on my “anniversary”. A few editing “tweaks” and “voila” it is a fun picture that will remind me of our trip and the fun time I had “combing” the ocean for treasures (shells). One of the funniest pictures I edited showed a wine bottle, two straws, a ballpoint pen, and a metal knife. The story goes like this…..when my husband and I checked into our hotel, we were welcomed with two nice bottles of wine. We were impressed…. The only problem was that the hotel had no bottle openers, so the inn-keeper offered us the infamous “openers” shown in the picture below . He said “I know, it’s ghetto, but it will work, trust me.” He also said “ it’s easy….place the ballpoint pen face-down. Knock on it a few times with the knife until the pen goes all the way through the cork. Then insert the straws, tip and pour.” I know I looked at him with an expression that said “really, really?” But I couldn’t help it. It was so absurd that as soon as we got out the door, my husband Kevin and I burst out into uncontrollable laughter. It will be a funny memory for a long time.
