The 3rd assignment . . .

Restoring old photos has taken much of my time the last several weeks. The teacher really drags assignments out I think but I have decided the others in the class may not have as much time as I do so I am careful not to get my assignments done too soon. Anyway, the restoring process is very time consuming and tedious work. I at first didn't like it but as I do more I find I like it better. Here is one of my completed restorations. This picture is my great grandmother.

Halloween Cupcakes!

Alvin had a potluck at school this evening in his ceramics class and he usually goes to Costco and buys that very chocolately layer cake with chocolate frosting and then shaved chocolate on top. It has kinda gotten "old" with everybody because nobody eats it so he brings it home for us to eat. Way too much chocolate for me and I do like chocolate. So, today I made pumpkin cupcakes from scratch with cream cheese frosting for his potluck. A much more healthy dessert and fun to make. They turned out rather cute I think.

More photoshop . . .

My second photoshop assignment was to make a poster that advertises a public service event or cause. I was confused and most defnitely had no idea what I wanted to do. Then, I went to a site on the web that lists all the events celebrated throughout the world by month. So, looking at the month of October first I quickly saw "Global Handwashing Day" on October 15. That sounded good to me because I do endorse everyone washing their hands at least a million of times in a day. There are also sites you can go to to download stock photography and that is where I found all of my pictures. It was a fun project and I am proud of my finished assignment.
