Make it circular!

I just found this rockin' awesome tip from Christine Smith. Read all the details here, but she tells you how to take something straight, like a ribbon or stitching or even text, and turn it into a circle! I just tried it, and it worked like a charm! I had to do the steps just a touch differently in PSP8 than she has them here (written for PSE5, IIRC), but still. Check it out!

From this:

To this:

With just a few mouse clicks. (Ribbon from Inspire Me Add-On by Eva Kipler, a former Friday Freebie at Ditital Freebies.) And all using this tutorial. I see a zillion uses for this! Just had to share (no affiliation, blah blah; I just think it is totally amazing!).


Bargain Hunter!

Boy, do I know how to shop or what? Of course, when you do the math, my spouse is probably not very happy with me, bargain or no. But over the past 2 months, I have averaged less than $2 per product purchased! Closer to about $1.80, actually. Several of these items I have been eyeing for a long time. Wanna see what I got? Some (but not all!) of the sales/clearance sections are still going on, and only one item is no longer available, so it might be worth checking out if you see something you like. (No affiliation, just a splendidly pleased customer.)

  • Journaling: "We were on our way to Walt Disney World, and we stopped to eat at Golden Corral. Daddy decided to get a cupcake from the dessert bar, and you insisted on trying it. You, the child who screamed and cried about cake and icing at your birthdays. But for some reason, being in a different form, that of a "cup-a-cake" as you still insist on calling them, made all the difference. You still didn't want to touch it with your hands, but you sure cleaned the top of icing and sprinkles quite efficiently, and you made remarkably little mess, all things considered. -March 2007"
