Plum Tired


I'm so glad my vintage camera post brought back fond memories for some of you.  Isn't it funny how you can see, smell, taste, or even feel something and those memories will come flooding back in an instant...the brain is miraculous that way!




And Kelly J, I've never noticed Loic's collection of vintage cameras at Cafe Des Artistes (which is a lovely little French restaurant located in Leonardtown), I will have to look for them next time I dine there!




I woke up at 4:45 AM this morning...don't ask me why...and I couldn't go back to sleep!  I hate it when that happens, sleep is my very good friend.   I need more than 4 hours and 45 minutes of shut eye...I didn't go to bed until the bewitching hour last night.



While I was playing around with actions and textures on these photos tonight, Mr. Tide tried to convince me that I had already posted them.  And I'm so tired that I actually thought he was right...but he was imagining things.  It's ok though, because he's ever so slowly cracking on the whole "no puppy" rule!

I had fun playing with different textures, but finally my eyes grew weary and I knew it was time to just call it a day!

I'm WAY far behind on my blog reading, house cleaning, laundry, but I will get caught up on all of that after I've had a little more shut eye tonight.  Right now I'm just plum tired and so I will bid you all adieu for the evening and wish you a happy Thursday, which is always a happy day because it means we are all that much closer to the weekend.   Bonne nuit a tous!

  1. Are those little books or is that clam shell huge? The texture on those starfish is beautiful!

  2. Hehe, good question! They are little children's books only about 4 or 5 inches long, but it is a relatively big shell.

    Your images are so beautiful. I just love what you did....You are so talented.
    You were getting up when I was going to bed....: )))

    P.S. I haven't figured out how to apply textures yet. I just bought my first set of textures and actions.. I am loving it... even though I have no idea what I am doing.

  12. I am up with you but with way less clarity than you have or drive to be creative, just want my coffee and quiet. Doesn't happen by the way, you know what it is like around here.

  13. HA! A puppy a day keeps the doctor away... well, kinda sorta.

    I thought I would lose my mind from lack of sleep the first 2-3 weeks with Rowdy in our life. Sleep deprivation makes an old woman grumpy, and also makes her bump into walls during the daytime.

  17. I'm positively worthless if I get less than seven hours sleep. I haven't tried textures yet. I'm a bit intimidated, I'll admit. Sure are pretty though.

  18. How did you number your comments? I googled that all morning and changed code and all sorts of stuff, and it never happened.

  19. I'm thinking that mention of the puppy in your most recent post was a clever tease! ~Lili

  20. Kat - have you found Kim Klassen yet? She breathtakingly fantastic at photoshop. She offers free classes. One is Photoshop The Skinny and that walks you thru the very basics of photoshop and then some. It's an invaluable help for those of us who didn't have a clue before. She also has a 'cookbook' for sale with all sorts of samples, step-by-step directions, textures, etc She's fantastic. go to www.kimklassencafe and see for yourself. you are so lucky getting the pup. i cannot convice my hubby that we need a third dog. good luck

  21. Hi Jo, I can't reply to your comments via email, because I get that silly no comment reply thingie!

    Thanks so much for the suggestion to visit Kim's site. I know Kate from A Country Girl uses Kim Klassen textures and has mentioned her several times. So I'm off to check out her site...thank you!

    Kat :)
