Postive Self-Talk for 2009...

I'm not much for New Year's Resolutions.  It would always make me feel like a failure when I set goals and did not keep them.  I would do well for about a week or two and then I would soon realize that I had not set very realistic goals.  This year I decided that I would give myself some "love" and a little positive self-talk.  I know what I want to accomplish this year and I am perfectly aware of the things I want and need to change.  I'm going to try again this year,  but this time I am going to set realistic goals with achievable steps to get there.

The first step is to create the positive self-talk alphabet.  Create one for yourself, print it out and keep it where you can see it.

Oats, Sunset & Unity...

I have been inspired lately to play around again with adding textures, etc. to my photos.  In fact, I got a new camera and can't wait to really get out and use it!  Any suggestions on where I can hoof it around and get some great shots of old  houses with great windows and doors?  How about some grunge?  I'm willing to travel around Florida.  Any thoughts?

I worked on a few today that feature TTV overlays.  I don't have the real thing, so this is the next best thing!

The Sweetest Thing...

I must confess that I am hooked on this Shiba Inu Puppy Cam.  These puppies are so cute and I just laugh and feel good when I see them play with each other.  They are also fun to watch as they sleep!  Take a peek and you will see!  It is live and at times it does go off air.
