Ahhh...nothing like nearing the end of the school year!

Ok, so it looks like we are finally done with the rain for now.  I still see clouds but they are quickly passing us by and the sun is shining!  Last weekend my oldest received his Masters Degree in  International Policy.  He is still on the hunt for a job and with lots of prayers and luck, he will have one soon.  My youngest still has some time to go before he gets his Bachelors in the Gaming industry.  What does all this mean?  Well, it means that in about a year, I will once again have my empty nest. My house will stay offense to my youngest...but he can add to the pile!  And my food bill will be far much lower... Even though my youngest has lost a few lbs, he still eats in mass consumption!  He is 23 and rather tall, so he needs lots of nourishment!  LOL And, our electricity will no longer be out of world! 

Then, in two more weeks, I will be a free woman again...well...I will be free for 2 months til I start back to work.  That is the beauty of working in Education, you get the holidays and summers off unless you work summer school, which I have not done in a long time.  I figure the summer is my time!  So with that said, I will be giving much of my energy to my blog and my internet shops.  So much to give and little time to give it! 

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day, I strongly support our men and women in the armed forces and wish them all well.  Being a wife of a retired sailor I understand the bond and support they all need to hold our country together!  God Bless them all!

Great Photo Collage Tutorial and Website!

Ok, so its not my tutorial, but this is an awesome tutorial I got from a group I belong to.  Its for making a photo collage.  You have one large image and 3 small ones.  She goes into depth showing how to create the template.  There are great step by step images with arrows pointing you in the right direction.  I also found this site to have multitudes of tuts and tips for free!  I love free stuff!  Enjoy!

Ok, so I have been slacking off a little, well not totally!  I did promise more tips and I was gently reminded that I have not been fulfilling my end of my own promise. So, I have been working on a big project and I wanted to present it to you little at a time.  I am still working on the first half of it.  Sooo please hang on just another week or so. I will have more time in about a month to put more effort into putting more things together. Thanks for your patients and being a follower...

Extra HUGS...
