For Fun. . .

For those of you who do not have facebook, or do not talk to me regularly, you may not be aware that I have a new laptop of my very own! We have money set aside for each of us kids as "college money", and found that this was something I was in need of for college. I'm afraid Mum and the kids are quite jealous (Dad has his own laptop, otherwise he might be too), but I simply tell them that if they would like to do my homework and write my papers for me, then they are more than welcome to have my laptop. I haven't had any offers yet. . .


So as I have been playing around, setting up different programs, and feeling utterly lost and confused by all that which comes like a second language to most of my peers, I ran across "Picassa 3" which I promptly downloaded. On our family computer, we had Picassa 2, and although I haven't found much terribly different, one feature caught my eye immediately. As a big fan of scrapbooking and black&white photos, I have had some fun using the "collage" button, and fiddling around with different pictures. Here are two collages I've made - one of my girl friends, and one of my guy friends. Neither is close to complete, and if your picture is missing, it is most likely because either 1.) it didn't fit, or 2.) I wasn't able to locate a photo of you, not because I don't love you. :)

I am planning to print out each of these pictures individually and create a "real" photo collage, using white and black picture frames, for the wall above my desk. I will most certainly let you know if that works out, and probably even take a picture of the final result.






Let's start Thanksgiving a few weeks early, and take time today to thank God for our friends.
