My birthday was April 30 and my husband knew what I wanted.
I'm so glad I got a new camera! Caution: this next part is going to sound like an advertisement, I get this way when talking about great things. Don't get me started on gmail or pinterest, you won't hear the end of it.
No, it's not a Cannon. It's not a Nikkon. It's a Panasonic Lumix G
. We found it at Costco for $300 less than anywhere else online and about half the price of the bigger name brand cameras with comprable capabilities. It is everything I was hoping for and then some. I'm a fan. I'm not an amazing photographer, but this camera has helped very much in that department. One photo I took became my desktop wallpaper.
I was reading How About Orange
where Jessica Jones had sited some different desktop designs. This gave me an idea...
Wallpaper for my iMac Desktop - I don't know how big it is, I just pressed shift, command 3 to take a full screen capture and used the front image dimensions from there in photoshop.

The only editing done was the addition of text. I try to post at least once monthly, perhaps this will be a good way to practice photography and keep this blog updated.
You may download these desktop wallpapers by right clicking the images. Enjoy!
Strange, how things happen in pairs or in 3's. Recently, I had two requests for very similar logos.
About month ago, the owner of Lucky Ducks Preschool
requested a logo, stationery and a website
. She wanted a happy duck with a clover in its mouth and I had the idea to create a sort of stamp effect with the circle around the duck.
Side Note: My daughter is enrolled to attend the preschool in September. I'm so excited!
Just 2 weeks ago, my step-father had an interesting request. He's raising chickens and built a coop and may end up writing a book about the whole process. How does this involve me? He named the coop Fowl Play Condo and had the idea to post a sign on the side. Without knowing anything about my most recent logo, he requested I illustrate a happy chicken inside a circle with Fowl Play across the top and Condo across the bottom.

They're oddly similar, yet unique from any other logos I've created.
I love coincidences.
In fact, I love them so much, that I feel I must link to a podcast of This American Life
specifically talking about crazy coincidences.
I like to think things happen in 3's really. Anyone need a logo
with a bird in a circle?
