I really can't believe we are 2 months into the year already! Where has the time gone?
I had a C.F.S./Fibro relapse in January; I guess too much partying over the Holidays. Not really, I take it relatively easy most of the time, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to what will trigger a relapse. I only know that the past 4 weeks have truly sucked. I haven't had the energy to do much but rest. It is exhausting to sit at the computer for long, so no blogging :(
It is too exhausting to sit and hold a book to read and even then my mush of a brain can't retain anything so I find I read the same thing over and over :( I can't really tolerate a lot of noise so watching TV is out for any length of time. Life gets very boring and frustrating and isolating. It is impacted by the fact that all my workspaces are in my home, my art studio, my sewing room and my office. So, with lots of projects sitting around calling to me to finish them and with no energy to do anything but ignore them it becomes downright depressing. Thankfully, I am starting to get a little energy back but it is a bad relapse and will take a few more weeks before I can try to start doing anything like photo shoots :(
So, what have I been able to do? Here are a few photos I was able to resize or play with. Let me know what you think :)
Art Sculpture DownTown P.Town
Stack of paper serviettes in a restaurant added my fav. PINK :)
(BEFORE) I love this :)
(AFTER) This was fun but I do not think as good as the original
(AFTER) This one I loved creating. I added one of my fav. layers to this and added a little pink tones :)
(AFTER) Just cropped and added a little colour, I love how it just pops :)
(AFTER) Way more interesting :)
These were a couple of photos I took in restaurants before the Holidays. I love the challenge of taking photos of Lights :)
So, what do you think?
I also wanted to share a couple of other things. As a lot of you know Etsy, in their infinite wisdom, closed down some of the community forums from their site. These were, what I believe, to be the very HEART of the Etsy community. Not sure what their thinking was behind this but it was dumb in my opinion. Anyway, some smart Etsians opened up The Unofficial Etsy Forums. My Blogger Buddy Aquariann blogged about it a few weeks ago, thankfully, I still feel in the loop. YAY! Here is the link
so pop over there to share your blog links, promo or just chat to your Blogger and Etsy buddies.
One more thing, one of my fPOE (Female Photographers of Etsy) Ladies is having a giveaway of a beautiful 2011 calendar with such gorgeous photos I just had to share it. If you have a min. pop over and check it out :)
