The weather forecaster said Upstate New York was "pummeled in snow". Well said.

We shoveled Thursday morning, Friday afternoon, and twice today. My Beulah and mom's dog, Sophie,

love all the action.

Here are some photos my sister's fiance took with his way cool iPhone. Those iPhones are so darn cool. I'm

doing the tracfone thing. It's cheap. It works but... it doesn't take panoramic shots!

DIY Cards

I just wanted to create a cute little "Merry Christmas" for my facebook page. Yesterday I purchased this cool rooster mug at my favorite antique store. As I sipped my coffee I was just itching to take a picture of it! I set the cup on a piece of computer paper and with one hand I held up another piece for the back drop. It turned out looking like this

I opened the photo up in Picasa straightened it, brightened it, added text, the CinemaScope effect, and a border

The photo on top ( Hi ) and this one below (coffee ) I used the font and effects in photobucket

I had a whole bunch of fun with this!!! Hope it inspired you a bit :o) xoxo

This great shop modeled this great hat with their great apron... I know! I'v been searching the net for such-of-a-hat. Turns out it's not a Fedora -- it's called a Trilby. Cute, huh? I think it will be a smash this summer -- or maybe next depending on how quick everybody catches on. I know I want one! So far the best I could find was either $400 or $8... The $8 wins although I think I'll hold out a little longer and see if one shows up in the shops here come spring :o)
