Guest Posting at Pretties and Posies


Happy Monday!

The beautiful and talented Melanie from
graciously asked me to guest post for her on her lovely blog,
so that's where you will be able to find me today.
Click HERE to read.

Do you know Melanie?
Her heart is every bit as big as her talent,
that girl can paint like nobody's business...


If I only hadn't dragged my feet,
this gorgeous work could have been mine!

But her creative gifts extend beyond the canvas...

Have you seen her bedroom?




Hello, Gorgeous!

For my guest post, I'm talking about the wonderful world
of photo editing ( my passion! ), so here's a little peek at what you can expect...

Straight out of the camera shot:


and through the magic of photo editing:


I hope you'll pop on over and take a peek,
and while you're there, be sure to look back over Melanie's previous posts...
I guarantee that you will become a fan and a follower just like I did!

Have a beautiful week!

came over from Pretties and Posies! I'm so excited to see your work b/c I have the Nikon D5000 and I love it, but I really need to take a class to figure the thing out.

I {heart} photography!!!

You did a fantastic job on your pictures...gonna try to figure out some of those places you told us to go for help with our pics. I have photoshop but seriously need to learn it like I need to learn my camera. :)

Great photos, and I always love what is hidden behind glass, stuffed in our cabinets. Usually they are the best treasures, and we just forget they are there!

Take care, Sue

Hi doll! Yes, her bedroom is pure dreaminess! I love that pale blue combined with crisp, cool white, so her bedroom held me in awe. Her sea painting is incredible, too. And your photo editing is magic!

Charlene said...

I'm off to see you at Melanie's I can't wait to see what you have to say & it's always divine to find a new blog to love. Thanks for sharing. Is that half doll in your photo for sale? If so how many pennies (that's what my 5 year old GRAND always says). I've been tied up with Hubby's health stuff so I've missed out all the gossip. I need to catch up. HUGS! Charlene

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hey Anne. I haven't talked to you lately but wanted to let you know I'm having a giveaway. I do hope you'll come by and enter.

How's the getting ready to move going? Busy, busy I bet. Now I have to go see your guest post and that fabulous bedroom of Melanie's. I can hardly believe how great you are with photo editing. That picture is wonderful.

Be blessed Dear Friend. Hugs...Tracy :)

Debra@Common Ground said...

Donna said...

Good Morning Anne, I adore Melanie's bedroom! It is gorgeous! I will be sure to check out her blog! And I will also check out your post on photo editing. That is something I really know nothing about, and would love to learn. I emailed you this morning regarding the comments I left on your giveaway post. I am most embarrassed to say that I confused your giveaway with another one going on right now! That particular giveaway allows entering as often as you would like. So, I am red raced as I say that I left 6 or 7 comments this morning on your post. Could you please delete them? So sorry! Thanks much!

sweetpea said...

I would be honored for you to shoot my booth at the show Anne. Can't wait to see you again.

Hugs,

Shelley
