Trading (Work)Spaces

My love of a good DIY project got the better of me again the other day. After searching stores and wandering websiites for a desk for smy sons's room without any luck, I finally came across a desk in need of a little TLC., My thrifty bargain-loving,  "fix-it-up-good-as new" artsy side yelled out before I could stop myself, "I'LL TAKE IT!" hahaha =)

A good scrubdown and a new coat of paint was all this little desk needed to look right at home in the kids room.  It is now in full use a honework station, though at the moment it is the central hub of their very own artistic comic book creations.

More DIY projects coming soon, I have a patio table and chairs to fix up! In fact, I am planning to completely re-vamp my whole deck, so maybe I'll do a "Pimp My Patio" kind of  post, hahaha.

Dashing Desks and Pimped Patios,

Project 24 - Rapids

This shot was taken during a hike to a waterfall on a  recent camping trip.
It was just above the most beautiful waterfall. 
After a hike I headed to the glacier-river fed lake to cool off. The water was freezing!

Project #23 -Editing Effects

This is my beautiful friend Sherri, whom I recently took family photos for. I figured she would be a perfect candidate to show one of my favorite photoshop effects, becuase the shirt she was wearing for the photo had such beautiful rich colors, and I wanted to highlight that.

She hasn't seen this photo all edited and "fancied" up like this yet, haha,  so I have to text her to tell her she graced my blogsite for the second time!

Wishing you all a great weekend and a Happy Canada Day!
