lots o stuff


we had a nice and quiet fathers day at our house..slept in a little, then gave art breakfast in bed accompanied by a myriad of cards that the girls made for him. i think it was the perfect morning for him--watching a martial arts movie and just chillaxing. i made that huge tag for him ^^ from the june poppy kit. its so luscious. yum.



saturday art took the girls to a softball game while i went to get my hair cut and colored =) it was looooong overdue and i really love my new look.

i know this isnt the best pic to see my hair and color..but i couldnt resist playing with some new actions that i got on friday lol. anyways, its an A line with side bangs...and the color is like a soft blackish brown. i love it! kinda hard to get used to having bangs! i keep wanting to put them behind my ear, its gonna take some time before i get used to just leaving them be.

anyways, got some other scrappy stuff done on friday, all using the june poppy kit..while my scrapologie is sitting here begging to be played with too! i just can't seem to find enough time. not to mention that i've been scrapping for 2 months with no mojo at all. i hate forcing it..but sometimes i just gotta try to push it through it, kwim? and on that note, i've been thinking about starting another art journal. i saw this one at the RV blog and its just TDF, but i think i'm a little over budget this month on the kit buying grrr. so, i think i might just make my own and try to find some cute fabrics and schtuff locally. i'm hoping that by doing this it'll make me feel creative again..bc i havent felt that way in a while. sigh.

oh, and the actions that i found to play with..which yeah. i need a tutorial in PSE. seriously. i have no idea what i'm doing. i mean, i can get the actions onto my pics--no problem there. its the playing with the opacity (whatever the heck that is! lol) and sharpening etc to get it to look how i want it to. does that make sense? i mean, i'm sure i could figure it out if i could figure out where the hell i find 'opacity'! me thinks i might have to take a trip to the library to learn how to use this program. and i hate that. bc i'm not a patient girl. i want to play NOW. not next week. so..if someone out there can help a girl out..PLEASE! =) oh and i was gonna link to the places i got the actions, bc i had a hard time finding ones that were compatible with PSE and not just PS. jessica's blog is where i bought my first 2 sets. i got all 12 of them for 20 bucks! what a deal! then i checked out this place called optikvervelabs and its actually a free plugin that has all kinds of different conversions. thats actually what i used on that pic of me. anyways, there are a few other ones i found as well, but these are the 2 that i have actually tried so far.

well kiddies .. i'm off to do some laundry. blah.

xoxo
