Amateur Graphic Design

For those of you not reading this on Google Reader, Bloglines, or whatever RSS reader you prefer you have probably noticed that I have a new blog background and blog header.

At work I have had to learn a few Photoshop skills, and I felt really inspired by what I was creating at work.

So I  found this amazing tutorial on how to make a blog background, and then I got to work. I am sure there was a much faster way to do whatever I did, but that didn't stop me from feeling quite accomplished at the end of my designing.

I was so proud of myself I made a new background for the Gnome Blog I also contribute to

I think I will leave the professional graphic design to my husband, but (as you can tell) for the time being I am quite proud of myself.

Helpink.org


Helpink.org is a cool new website where artists can submit their art work. Helpink.org turns the artwork accepted into posters and sells them. All of the proceeds go to the charity of the artists' choice.

The End of LOST

This is not a post about my thoughts on the Season Finale of LOST. LOST is what it is. Confusing, magical, sci-fi, and unanswered. This is a post about me being sad that LOST is over.

I  will never forget watching a complete season of LOST on my honeymoon with Jonathan and then searching for a Target because we needed to get season two in our hands well before we headed home from Florida.


I feel like I said goodbye to my friends on Sunday night. I am not sure if it will fall into the ranks of The OC and Veronica Mars as a show I will watch over and over (I have exhausted both the DVD's and Hulu when it comes to those two shows). The intensity and need for me to watch something light hearted as soon as the LOST logo comes across up at the end of an episode may keep me from putting it on as background noise. But Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Hurley will be always be close to my heart. The writers of LOST could fill my head with a million more unanswered questions and I would still faithfully watch the show every week.

Signing off for LOST.
Bad Robot.

500

This is my 500th post. It seems like it should be a big deal, but it also seems like it took me a million years to reach this benchmark.

Here's to the next 500 posts.
Cheers.
