I have many half-finished projects to tell you all about...but I am going to take a little vay-cay.  {"She could post LESS often?!?!?!"}

My sis, mamaTAVE is coming for a visit, with our mom, and Princess A.  We have a thrifting trip planned while she is here, and I am hoping to have many makeover posts coming up!

Time for a Picnik!

...No, I didn't spell that incorrectly.  I have recently discovered Picnik for FREE, fun photo-editing!  Go play around.  I did, and came up with these fun versions of some old school photos of myself, and the Hub Dub.

So much fun! 

If you try out anything fun, post a comment so I can see!

 I couldn't decide if he looked more like Elliot from ET, or the kid from Flight of the Navigator!  Either way, he's a cutie!
