Fun with kids

Earlier that day Robby said to Mary, "Hey why don't you wear that cool pointy hat and coat getup and I'll wear my striped jeans. We want to look hot when we go to the city." Mary, being the fashion queen she already was said, "ga goo", meaning "right on my brother! and by the way, I love what you've done with your hair!"

OMG.....I slay myself.

I know this photo isn't very good, but I thought it was cool and I wanted to scrap it.

New shelving made by my very own builder guy!

Chuck has been busy working on my birthday present today....shelves for the craft room. Here's a pic of the wall its going to go on (as well as all the crap that is going to go on the shelves!). Also a pic from the garage of the shelves in progress. Chuck told me he got an 'A' in wood shop and now I believe him! These shelves are going to rock! I just know I'll be the envy of all my crafty friends!

Young Grampa O'neill.

Those goofy kids....

Check out the old car in the background and also the people in the background. I'm loving all these photos!!

Old Pix.

So I pulled out some old pictures I had of my mom's family and scanned them. I tried to sharpen and enhance far this is the best I could do (see following posts). I think I can get better images, but I need to keep playing with them. Stay tuned for more.....

Handsome Guy....My Grammpa O'neill

Gramma & idea. Anyone want to guess when this was?

I found this postcard pic of the Albert Pick Hotel on-line. How cool is that?!

BACK to school.

I've been having a ton of fun manipulating photos and then printing them out. For this LO, I blew up the image and then used the ink-sketch tool to give it that cool cartoony look. I then printed it out from my copier...easy-peasy! Who knew!....Well, Chuck knew. He's been trying to get me to use the computer more since I met him....but of course I've resisted. This morn I asked him this: "If I decrease the compression of a scanned image, will it then make the file smaller?" (as it turns out, you need to increase the compression.) He about was jumping for joy that I was even asking something "technical" like that. I still don't know what any of means, but it got the job done! Thanks, Chuck!

I love this LO of Amy and sweet!
