When I'm Not Reading

I just discovered this fun meme at The Unread Reader. The point of this meme is to spotlight something we do when we're not...ahem, reading.

About three years ago, I discovered the joys of Photoshop Elements. I already knew how to do the simple stuff like basic color correcting and cropping but that was pretty much it. Now I've taught myself to do minor photo restoration, digital scrapbook pages, and some cool photo effects. It's rather time consuming (like blogging) and tough to pull yourself away from the computer.lol

A great web site for learning Photoshop Elements is
 Adobe Photoshop Elements Techniques

What do you do when you're not reading?

That's awesome that you enjoy Photoshop! For the longest time I tried to get into it but I kept getting overwhelmed with the program.

The picture of your son is adorable :).

You are very talented! You should try some of those remake a cover contest!

I love Photoshop Elements, even though I have no idea what the heck I'm doing! But I'd love to learn more and I really want to try some digital scrapbooking stuff as soon as I learn how to do it.

Thanks for the link to the website with tips! I needed that!
