We’ve all had these moments…
Nick.com

If you’ve ever attempted to learn Photoshop, you should be able to relate to poor Sokka, here.  Have you ever tried to add a simple adjustment, only to find that menu item you need is greyed-out?  Or, you’ve spent one helluva frustrating hour trying to figure out why a function won’t work for you?  After a bit of research comes the “slap on the forehead”, aka the “a-ha” moment!
I’ve put together a list of totally mind-numbing mistakes we, as beginners at some point, have been known to make and how not to make them.  Some are pretty obvious – maybe I’m the only one who didn’t get it.  Others are down-right befuddling.  Let’s go!

“I Love…” Freebie Parts and ‘Recovery’

A good Monday to all!  I hope everyone is staying warm.  For Florida, 20 degrees is cold!  It’s been in the 20’s two nights in a row.  During the day, it barely made it up to 40 degrees.  My drafty old ‘cracker’ house is cold!!  My house sits above the ground a foot to a foot and a half.  Nothing is protecting us from the cold drafts underneath.  It’s wonderful in the summertime, allowing breezes to flow all around the house.  Needless to say, come winter and we have to run the heat in excess.  We have to bundle up – indoors!  Everyone has slippers and ‘footies’.  You have to!  Even with the heat cranking, like it is now, my feet are like ice cubes!  Brrrr!
I want to tell ya’ll about something I found.  One of the wonderful ladies in my group, Digital Whisper, is offering a free course called, “Recovery”.   Stephanie has this to say in her opening, 
We are all in recovery from something…. and the entire human race is in spiritual recovery right now!
It does not matter what you need to recover from… the important thing is that you know you need to walk down this path for a while! 
You could be in recovery for drug or alcohol abuse, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, a difficult relationship, a difficult childhood, depression, grief, of not loving yourself, of enabling the people around you and many, many more things….

 “Recovery” sounds like just what I need!  There will be daily ‘lessons’ which are mailed to you in your inbox for a daily cleansing, as Stephanie so writes on the blog, “Inspiration for Life”. She is going to be using a text for the course, but, it isn’t necessary in order to take the course. She does give the info on obtaining a copy if you like. She suggests keeping a little notebook or perhaps a journal. The daily classes are real short so they can be done quickly, a plus for our busy lives, eh? I know I hemmed and hawed as to whether to sign up or not. As a rule, any self-exploration/discovery I have ever engaged in has been painful! It has been ‘good’ pain, but, pain, never the less. I am not looking forward to opening myself up, right now, anyway. But, I know from experience that this is what makes it or breaks it for me. You might say, the more painful the lesson, the more help it is to me. These things always take a certain amount of gumption to take on, but, if I can’t do this for me, no one else will. I think that is the key, here. This is not for anyone but me!  I don’t know about you guys, but, I have spent a lifetime waiting on others and making sure my loved ones had everything they needed.  What about me?  I need.  So, I signed up.  LOL  The classes start today, so, if you think you might be interested, go see and sign up, in the side bar, for this.  Like Stephanie told me, I can always ‘un-subscribe’ if I don’t like it.

Today, Miss Edna and I are giving out the next two(2) parts to our February kit, “I love…” Last week you got the QP’s. This week, as well as next, there are two parts, full of elements and papers so you can create your own pages. Typical of me, I forgot to add the TOU’s and Sources for this one.  My bad!  However, this one is for Personal Use only, please.  My supplies came from “123RF Stock Photos” and “Barry’s Place”, a wonderful place with all kinds of tubes and .pngs in stock.
Below are my two previews.  Click on the first one for Part 3 and the second one for Part 4.  Then, below that, you will see Miss Edna’s preview.  Click on it to go to her blog to see her parts and download them.

As usual, all of my past links are still available.  My next project is to put all of my goodies up on one page with links.  Like a gallery, folks will be able to view a preview, then, click on it to go to that post.  I just have to figure out how to do that!  LOL
Until then,Funny Graphic #6
Keep Smiling!

The sword of time will pierce our skins 
It doesn’t hurt when it begins 
But as it works its way on in 
The pain grows stronger…watch it grin, but… 

That suicide is painless 
It brings on many changes 
and I can take or leave it if I please. 

So, does anyone know what this is?  You will know it as soon as it is revealed.  I guarantee!  LOL  If you know it, don’t give it away in the comments.  This is just an ‘FYI’ kind of trivia-thing.  Hint:  There’s a link at the bottom of this post to go to the verse’s origin.  You are in for quite a surprise if this is the first time you’ve seen this.  I was!  It, well, never mind!  LOL
