What My Week Looks Like: Playing, Learning, Loving

I've been playing with a few new toys on my computer.  I FINALLY got photoshop (I've been using Pixelmator for all my photo editing).  The excitement here is that there are so many fun tools and brushes that are made just for photoshop and I can finally play with all the cuteness that I see going on in the blogisphere.  Anyone who isnt aware of Pugly Pixel should be.  I picked up this super cute template from her blog and made a quick valentines collage for my mother.  I've also been experimenting with using a Bamboo writing tablet (so many possibilities for design and edits with my artwork!).  Still getting the hang of it, but there is something so cool about having my doodles done right in photoshop ready to be manipulated, and, I was finally able to get a set of photoshop actions to play with from Radlab that I've been dying to try out.  I've been drooling over these effects for so long, and I am so excited to pump up my picture editing with them.  That's what I've been up to... oh and a lot of this...
and this...
and some of this...
Hope you have a creative week ahead of you.  If not, there are always many spaces able to be filled with something unique and out of the box in every mundane routine.  What will you do this week to add a spark to your imagination?


  1. I love it! I always love to see mothers who nurture their children and their own creativity at the same time.
    This week, I plan to slow down on my walks and take a camera and/or sketchbook with me so I can capture those little sparks of inspiration I fell when I look at the trees and plants in my neighborhood. Sometimes looking isn't enough.

  2. I will have to check out all these fun tools, I have photoshop and have no idea how to even use it! awful i know, love all the pics of the kiddos and work in progress:O) Thanks for sharing and have a great day!!:O)
