Old dog - New tricks :)

Evening

I've learnt something new :)



I love taking pics for my blog but sometimes wish I could do clever stuff with them. MrVV has a fancy photo-editing programme but that is very complicated. I've wanted some simple & Vicki-proof for a while. The other day whilst browsing my extensive list of blogs I read, I spotted someone (sorry can't remember who) mentioning a really simple one - then a young friend (a mere 17 years old) mentioned on FB that she used a simple programme too - http://www.picnik.com/. Really easy & with great results;

From these rather colourful cakes (blue sponge with pink icing - made by little son & my 9 year old niece today);



To these - even more colourful and with posh round corners on the picture!!;



Oh I think I shall have fun with that site - definately very Vicki friendly & easy to use :)

Have a good week - please pray for sunshine for Wednesday - I've a party that evening that we need nice weather for - it might involve homebrew & camping ;)

Oh I know what you mean about photos- there's an 18 year old girl in church who takes just amazing shots and i want to shadow her one day! Did you see the article about camping in yesterday's Sunday Times- you would really like it!

Picnik rocks! Definately a great tip to set the tent up before indulging in homebrew or you may get very damp. xxx
