Another blog makeover.
I'm really falling in love with it, though if I had more editing and coding skills it could be way more awesomer. Honestly, that is one of my little aspirations--to grow in my photo and logo editing skills and maybe possibly one day in the future earn some extra cashola creating beautiful designs for people. I have VERY limited resources right now which is one of the reasons I'm at a standstill. Kevin has been messing around with GIMP lately and I honestly have no idea where to begin with that program. I just need a few (hundred) hours to find my feet.
If I could hone these skills and learn about ditigal scrapbooking--even better! I enjoy getting the creative juices flowing and thinking of beautiful ways to show off and preserve photo memories. BUT. Scrapbooking takes a ridiculous amount of time, way too much cleaning, far too much space. It's just rather impractical. It takes 45 minutes to get in to the creating groove. I work for a couple hours. (And it's RARE to find a couple hours to work with.) Then I clean up for 30 minutes. Sheesh. That's a big commitment. I think I'd rather use a digital program. And click "save" when I need to walk away. Perfect.
But this requires me figuring out the wide world of graphic design.
Along those lines, I'd love to learn more about photography. Even as a young girl I had an interest in this art. I would set up backdrops for my baby dolls or my sister--whichever would cooperate best for the vision I had. I'm not sure what ever happened to that dream of mine. I think I forgot about it. I'm a little sad about that, but hey, I still have time to learn new skills, right?
I even had an opportunity to take a photography class in college, but I opted for Art Foundations instead. I won't tell you the reasons for this decision, because you'll find me ridiculous and petty, but I did have reasons. I just wish I would have ignored my pocket-protector personality for just a semester and went for it.
Kevin also has an interest in photography and editing. The thought of sharing a hobby and possibly a mini-business with him thrills me. Who knows if this will ever pan out, but we like dreaming about it. In the meantime, we'll be saving for a digital SLR camera. If you would like to contribute to this fund because you believe I could be the photographer ever, just let me know.
If not, well, I'll love you anyways.
