Ch ch ch Changes

Those of you visiting my blog today may notice the new header and background. This is a work-in-progress  so  forgive the dust and confusion of construction! It may be completely different when next you visit and there is quite a bit of tweaking that needs to be done.

I know, I know...I've had the same header photo for forever. I get stuck in a rut! BUT I happened to see Jessie's new header on her blog and I made her draw me one. My daughter has been playing with a new graphic program and creating pictures like this:


She calls this "speed painting" and has it done in under an hour. I'm guessing it's an exercise designed to increase skill? Wow! You must visit her blog and see the pretty Blue Jay too. Jessie also has her art posted on this site here. Really, this amazing person is my child?

Thank you, Jessie!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

She is very talented. I don't think I could do something like that in a day let alone an hour.
And I like the new header!

I adore the new "do" Daff!
Your daughter is amazing :) I just visited her blog and am now a follower, I can see why you are so very proud of her, she is amazing and so creative....she takes after her mom!
Hugs and congrats on both your big change in decor, and in bringing a wonderful woman into the world.
Hugs
