Marker Update

My faith in the Postal Service has been restored!  What was lost is now found!




More Than A Little Bummed, Waterlogued


I bought new Copic markers last week, not a full set, but $86.00 worth of blues and greens.  They were set to be delivered Monday by the U.S. Postal Service.  Much anticipation on my part, as usual, keeping an eye out for our mailman and checking our box over and over. Long story short, Monday – no markers.  Tuesday – no markers.  Can you see where this is going??  I pulled up the tracking info and it showed they were delivered ON SATURDAY!!!!  OH NO THEY WEREN’T, OH H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS NO!!  I printed the tracking info and trotted down to our post office and explained the situation in my most nicest voice (seriously).  Here’s what I learned: they don’t know what happened or where they are, but they will ask our carrier about it and let me know. Jeez.  Did I forget to tell you that poor Mr. Iknead was poking around in the front flowerbeds after dark and in the rain on the off chance that maybe my package may have somehow migrated from our mailbox to under the hydrangeas? No such luck.  I do love this man, I surely do!  This sort of thing makes me even closer to crazy than usual.  Grrrrrr.


I found this nifty app called Waterlogue  and decided to give it a try.  It turns a regular photo into a watercolor painting.

I liked that so much, I tried it on some beach pics –






I may be using this app more!
