9am / 4pm


Well until Taylor joins me again I guess I'm on my own.

Today was another day of preparing (tired of hearing that? it will be over soon) and I made some great progress. My dad helped me create a tri-fold display to hang a few framed images on and I'm finally getting the color where I want it on my cards. It drives me crazy the differences I see on screen vs. my printer, one printer vs. another printer; cmyk vs. rgb. It's odd but the rgb is printing better on my printer. Anyway, once I get the color correct all will be well.
Talk about color. This tree I saw on the way home from purchasing more ink was simply amazing. This photo is straight out of the camera - no color adjustment what-so-ever. The color was so pure and clean - without blemishes - and translucent with the afternoon sun shining through.

I wish I could put on a cuddly sweater, grab a mug of hot chocolate and sit under that tree for an afternoon.
