Trouble for Trouble

So, for the past week or so, I’ve been learning bits and pieces about PhotoShop. I know, I know, that’s all I seem to talk about. I’ll stop after this post…maybe. *giggles* My main teacher has been the ever talented, Trouble Dethly. You may have heard of him. He’s one of the co-founders of BVN. He’s the editor of Eclipse Magazine. He’s an active blogger with a unique style unlike anyone else I’ve seen. He also happens to be the SL son of Kess Crystal, who just so happens to be my SL sister. Well, Trouble has been so kind and patient with me, despite my ancientness. *glares at Trouble* Even though I backed out of two scheduled lessons, he still agreed to help me. So, after hours of guiding me through the various steps he takes to completely edit a photo, we have come up with the shot you see here. I took the photos in SL over a week ago, but we finally broke down and edited the shot the other night. I’m so happy with the results and I’m truly blessed to have had such a wonderful instructor. Thank you, Trouble…I hope I wasn’t too much trouble…tehehe.

Decorate or Destroy

I can’t decide whether I want to decorate for a black Christmas (black ornaments, white tree, etc) or use this fantastic giant ornament as a festive wrecking ball to destroy this snowman. Decorate or destroy? THAT is the question.

Just Right

I decided to take little break from all the Christmas scenes and just do a normal-ish picture. I’ve been playing with PhotoShop and getting far more comfortable with it, but I have a long way to go. Although, I’m quite happy with how this one turned out, I really feel that I just got lucky. I strolled around the FMD sim until I found a setting I thought suited me. If you’re not a member of FMD, but want to check out their amazing sim go on a Friday night during open access. They do it weekly. If you are a member, then I recommend you take full advantage of the gorgeous sim. I happen to know the team that put this all together and that they worked tirelessly for months to get it just right.

Deck the halls

Well, Hi there! Don’t mind me, I’m just putting ornaments back on the tree…perhaps a little higher than they were before. Why? Oh, you must not have cats. Anyone that owns a cat knows why…*laughs* So goes the life of a cat lover during the holidays! Deck the halls with lost ornaments from the tree…falalalala la la laaaa…ouch, was that broken glass? OMG! Where is that soon to be dead cat?

If I Have an Angel

I was born on a Sunday morning. My devote Christian grandmother told my mom that it meant I would have extra angels looking over me. As I was not a particularly graceful child (or adult for that matter) my mother would often say, “Your angels are working overtime today!” As I got older and continued to be anything but graceful, my mother would beg my extra angels to look after me and to have mercy on her. *laughs* I see a lot of memes with angels facepalming that say something about how people’s angels must look watching over them. Every time I see one, I just chuckle. My grandmother passed away when I was eleven. My mother insisted that she joined the ranks of angels looking over me. What occurred in my life the following year was confirmation that there were no angels watching over me.
As I grew older, I would sometimes imagine that there were still a few angels lingering about and just maybe they were dosing out some karma on those that crossed me, but eventually I grew to believe that wasn’t true either. I know some people do believe in angels and I have to say I think its a beautiful sentiment, but for me…nah, I don’t believe in them anymore. However, the concept of angels has always been quite fascinating. I especially love the way they are represented on Supernatural. I realize not all of my readers have seen that show and some may have just started it, so I won’t go into any details and spoil it. The entire concept of God, angels, Lucifer, demons…all of it…ages old, but the way the stories are told on Supernatural almost makes me want to believe in them again. At least that story makes a bit more sense to me, but alas to believe their story means I must also believe in all the monster presented, as well.

For now, I’ll just present you with this picture and the thought that if I have an angel watching over me, this is what I think my angel probably looks like…sometimes she is stunned and pointing her finger at me as if to say, “You did it AGAIN!” She would surely be angry and frustrated to say the very least.
