Good afternoon, Blogetteers, I'm getting a rather late start today, because I had bidness to do. It was also important that I catch up on what the queen is doing and the proper etiquette when greeting her-since I'm quite sure she will make every attempt to make a quick trip to New Mexico for tea.
The rest of the time I have been working with my Adobe Photoshop, trying desperately to achieve some sort of photographic capability,motivated by looking at the exquisite photos published by Pioneer Woman, I am awed, every morning.
Part of my goal in retirement is to awaken and exercise my artistic muse, who sadly slipped into disuse and neglect, through no fault of her own. I fear that she has aged, a little faster than I, and will therefore require tad more rehab to become fully functional. And I better start before arthritis sets in, and she can't do squat.
The long-term goal would be to earn some money by developing the skills and gifts with which I was born. I have resurrected my bead and wire work (including a fun little anvil and a ball peen hammer), I've learned to knit-and I'm really trying to learn to crochet, and there's always fun things to do with sculpy.
In two weeks, a friend and I will do a mini craft show at one of the local schools (teachers deserve an end-of-the-year treat). Unless I sell out (a girl can hope), I will approach a couple of local shops to see about selling on consignment. If I can sell a few items, I will at least be able to pay for more supplies.
So for today, I am going to include some Photoshop photos for our Ahrtsey-Phartsey segment, from our recent Jemez trip.
