by toni from chick-chat. funny how we can have friends on the other side of the world, that we will probably never meet...
toni was so nice. she said this about me: jacki is a very talented writer/Photoshopper/scrapper/all-rounder whose blog is always entertaining. thanks toni!
anyway, the tag works like this:
1. navigate to where you keep your pictures, select the 6th folder, and the 6th picture in that folder.
2. Then post it on your blog with an explanation of the story behind the picture
3. tag 6 other people to do the same, and make sure you let them know about it.
in december the man and i popped in to say hi to our friends who also happen to be our neighbors, amelia and jannie. amelia and i get along well, we have scrapbooking and photography (amongst other things) in common, and our men also get along well (they have drinking beer in common :-)).
anyway, amelia and jannie's 2 children both got married within a month of each other, in november and december 2008. amelia was showing me their wedding photos on her computer. and the photos made my photoshoppin' fingers itch...
amelia cut me a disk with some of the photos, and i had a wonderful time playing around.
this photo is of amelia and jannie's daughter sheynelle and her new hubby morne. it just happened to be photo# 6 of folder #6.
it's good thing it wasn't that very unflattering one of me taken by my son... phew!
i have tagged some people outside my usual circle, and some new bloggers, and some new blog-friends. GO!
as you may have gathered from my sporadic posting over the last week or 2, i have been a little distracted. i have been thinking. ouch!
i have a few projects up my sleeve. first is valentine's day. every year i wake up to all the 'celebrations' a little late, this year i'm planning ahead.
next is a photoshop class. a 'real life' one. 4 classes, 3 hours each, commencing in march. i'm doing it properly, i'm planning and thinking and writing it down. the cost will be R400 for the course, and i will give you good value for your money. are you interested?
then, later, in a few weeks/months time, i want to convert the photoshop course into an online one. this needs a little more planning and research, so it will take a little longer to come to pass. amongst others, i need to figure out how i can receive online payments, as south africans cannot receive payments through paypal. any ideas?
would you like a course like that?
i am also editing photos for clients.
there is one more project/ambition/plan in my mind, but that will have to wait a little longer. i cannot do everything at once.
i am telling you all this, and i am saying it out loud, so i don't chicken out. i'm good at thinking and planning and dreaming, but i'm not so good at doing, taking risks, putting myself out there. maybe a fear of failure? but i have to do something, as my laptop is in hospital, and will cost a fortune to fix. a fortune i don't have, and i must earn soon.
i will announce the winner of my RAK that i posted here tomorrow, so you have a few hours to comment if you still want to be in the draw.
