Too Many Ideas
Little Garbanzo was lucky enough to be added to a treasury by Totally Crosses yesterday, be sure and stop by her shop, she makes some amazing crosses. If you would like to visit the treasury, you can do that here:

While I was viewing the treasury yesterday I noticed something. My picture was very light compared to the rest. Everything looked much brighter colored on my old computer screen. I edited his pics, but I think this new one shows me what is probably a truer color so I am going to have to go back and redo all those pictures!
While I don't relish that prospect since pictures are so time consuming, in a way I think it's ok that I have to redo them. I have been working on a new design for my website and I will probably want to have pictures that better match it anyway.
Artists have a well of ideas and inspiration that we draw from. Sometimes that well runs dry and we have to fill it up with new inspiration in order for new ideas to grow.
Lately however, my well has been overflowing with ideas. So many ideas I don't even know which one to do first. I haven't been spending too much time at the computer except to work on graphics and teach my Mother how to use the new laptop I bought her. Other than that, I have been working on these ideas that are practically ready to burst out of me like the monster in Alien! (Wasn't that a pretty image! *grins*)
She is able to do video chat now though, and she is quite happy about it. I like it, it makes me feel like she isn't so far away. My parents moved to Montana a few years ago. I know most people like to move somewhere warm when they retire, but not my parents...they went to a very cold place. Of course I shouldn't say much, we just got over a blizzard here. I know they are happy there, but I don't get to see them as often. It's very difficult to get there by plane and the drive is horrendous. We are going to visit in August though.
In the mean time I need to go to bed before I fall over. It's really late for me, and I have more ideas, photos and laundry to work on when I get up!
