Remember when I posted this picture of my friend Andi and her daughter?
Remember that I was playing around with some new frames? Remember how I said the one shown above was the first frame I chose to work with?
Well, my sister wrote me an email, after reading my post that day, saying she didn’t like the frame I picked out. She said it made Andi look like she had horns coming out of her head. She said I should quit picking frames and stick to what I know, like picking my nose.
Of course, I threw my shoe at the computer, breaking my monitor, and then screamed names at her (email), like “You Silly English K-Ni-Ght!” [Name the movie.]
Needless to say, it was not a pretty sight.
Eventually, I took a deep breath, untwisted my panties, and realized she was right.
To be honest, even before my sister pointed it out, I realized the frame I used made Andi’s hair look like the top of a Dairy Queen dipped cone. Or two. I had just hoped no one else would notice. Or, I at least hoped, that no one would actually write me an email pointing it out…
You see, I write this blog solely for the purpose of having nice people write nice comments to me. I reject the nay-sayers and replace them with only goodness and light.
Soon after that dark and dreadful day, I decided to use Andi’s picture to play around with again. Because, even with Diary-Queen-Double-Dipped-Cone-Hair, Andi and her daughter are beautiful (inside and out).
This time, though, I played with textures and stamps…and I removed the frozen diary treat from Andi’s head…
(Watch my sister email me to say how Andi has writing all over her forehead…that she looks like a graffiti wall at a Paris Post Office…) I like it, by golly.
Ohhh, I like that one, too!
Truthfully, Andi and her daughter don’t need all the textures and frames–they’re beautiful without it all. But, I sure had fun trying new things on and around their pur-ty faces!
Thanks, Andi, for being my unsuspecting test subject. I love you and think you (and your sweet daughter) are wonderful, delightful, and beautiful–with or without the Cone Head.
Make someone smile, today,
