So, I haven't been the best at blogging lately. Maybe it's the summertime, maybe it's the craziness that equals my life right now, and maybe it's because I haven't really had time for scrapping. Last week was spent in ATL for a leadership meeting. I'm so glad I went. A man named Alan Zimmerman spoke, who has a doctorate in psychology and is a speaker (I can't even imagine what we paid him to speak) for various businesses. Anyway, I learned a lot and have a few things I want to work on, namely asking others more questions and also being more tactful. Now there's something for me to work on!
As soon as I got back from ATL, Greg and I headed to Paducah (2.5 hours away) for their 65th Wedding Anniversary.
These are Greg's paternal grandparents and are some of the sweetest people I know. 65 years!!! What an example for us all.
And a picture of the family that was able to come before we had dinner at Kentucky Dam.
And, me with a photo taken by Greg. I just bought some Photoshop actions from here and wanted to play around with this photo, since it's a bit overexposed. I'll post later in the week the progress I've made with learning said actions :)
Greg and I had a chance to go antiquing and I got this sucker for $20!!! Isn't she a beaut? (doesn't that sound like something the Griswald's would say?)
The "a" doesn't work, but I've figured out the issue and I think Greg can fix it relatively easily.
Also, we picked up lots of other goodies that you'll just have to wait to see inside future Studio Calico kits. Perhaps Scarlet will let me show a sneak for you at some point, but for now, trust me that the next few months are gonna be grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!
One more thing, I've been remiss in updating you regarding the friend of mine who went into early labor. She ended up having the baby (Riley Marie) and she was 5 lbs. 2 oz. A bit small and ended up having a feeding tube for a few days, but after about a week in the hospital, mom and baby are home and guess who I get to see tomorrow???? You guessed it. I'm heading to Cincy for work and me and my camera are taking a trip!
