A New Friend

As many of you know, I love love love a good bargain!  I've recently had the chance to get to know a mutual friend, and she is even more in love with a bargain than I, if that's possible.  She and I are fellow Groupon lovers, Swagbucks users, and Rite Aid hounds!  Her blog is just in its baby stages, but I'd encourage you to stop by and check it out - she is a wonderful mother, friend, and child of God, and an inspiration to us all!

Free Download - Help Comes from the Lord

Here is another free digital download for my faithful readers!  Just click the image below.  It'll take you to google docs where you can download the high res jpeg file (without the watermark).  Then just print to your heart's content!  I have this particular one hanging by my desk at school :-)

Hello Birdie!


A quick update:

This August, I started teaching at the private K-12 school at my church.  I am teaching Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, an art class, and flute lessons, and I am absolutely loving it!  The kids are great, and I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to teach.  Instead of dreading Mondays like I did in my previous job, I now look forward to them - what a great feeling!

Because this is my first year teaching, I obviously have a lot of prep work to do - which explains my absence online!

My plan:
  • To post here when I can, even if it's just a picture, Bible verse, or quick story.
  • To keep my Creek Bed Threads Etsy store open, adding new items when possible (which won't be much).
  • To temporarily put my Creek Bed Cards Etsy shop on vacation to lighten the load.
  • To close my old Aunt E's Things Etsy shop that I haven't touched in forever anyway :-)
 So I hope that you - my friends, family, and readers - will stay with me through this exciting time of change!

With much love,

Photoshop Magic

What I did:
  1. Shot in RAW
  2. Adjusted exposure, temperature, etc.
  3. Cropped
  4. Applied and adjusted free Pioneer Woman Action, Soft and Faded
  5. Applied and adjusted free Paint the Moon Action, Vanilla Pop
  6. Added free Paint the Moon Texture, Timeworn Soft (used this tutorial for elements layer masks)

Ta da!  A lot of work, but I think it was worth it, do you?  Are you a fan of the soft and subtle, and slightly vintage look, or do you like your pictures free and clear of editing?
