I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.
Don’t worry friends, I won’t just be featuring the edits, there shall be other fodder here, but I know not everyone is back to work yet (that is where you read your blogs isn’t it?, our little secret…). I hope you don’t mind that I am continuing with a theme here, let’s call it ‘Natural History’, I want to have a series of edits that have some continuity. As for new things, I do have new sets that I will be putting in the shop that I am pretty excited about (I love a good set), plus some other favorite items that I will be sharing this week.  I started exercising the other day, or should I say I went one day and the next three days that followed I felt as if I had been run over by a large vehicle. Maybe the suped up Pilates class was a little too ambitious for me?  I am renown for being too ambitious like the time I promised a future bride that I would letterpress her wedding suite free after taking one (and my only) letterpress class. Who does that? Obviously someone that is co-dependent and is aiming to please.  It back-fired, I couldn’t do her suite because of timing (I was leaving one job and starting another), although I did give her the files gratis to have her suite printed. Timing became a moot point as I got fired a couple weeks later from my job, coincidentally (or not so coincidentally?) one of her bridesmaids worked at my new job and must of read my blog post where I admitted to being sad about my new job and I got fired. So, that’s what happens when you are too ambitious and think you can do more than is physically possible.  I failed on both counts, sincere apologies to both the bride and my body.  I am going to go back this week to try again, I may bite off more than I can chew, but I don’t give up that easily.  I should probably send the bride an apology note as well.

  1. I am so encouraged by your transparency! Those of us with big dreams seem doomed to shoot for the moon but come up somewhat short… ah, well. Teddy Roosevelt has a great quote about the “man in the ring.” I, too, would much rather try and fail than not try at all. You are an amazing individual. Keep it up!

  2. Thank you for the kind words, I still do feel awful about the bride letterpress suite though. I’ve learned to never promise a bride anything you can’t deliver!
