I'm always looking for fresh concepts for artwork. Here's an idea for creating a work of art out of your existing photographs. Below is one of my favourite photos; one that I took a couple of years ago. (If you follow by blog, you've probably seen it now and again in my posts, and until recently, it was the banner across my blog page.) I've always loved magnolias; maybe I was a Southern Belle in my past life :-), so I wanted to use this photo for my "experiment".
I used a photo website called Picnik, for editing my photo. I'm not the most tech savvy person, but (33 comments)

Well, I'm a little late adding my two cents on the RESA International Staging Conference, but I have an excuse since I just got home late Saturday night. My Sister-in-Law and a girlfriend joined me for a few more days of Vegas life after the Conference. Must say I'm "Vegased Out" now, but back to the real reason for my blog - the Staging Conference!

Once we hit 200 attendees, Shell Brodnax managed to pull another 20 tickets out of her hat to bring our total up to a whopping 220 professional home (20 comments)
