Even though I have lost much of my enthusiasm for teaching, I love learning new things. I may have too many hobbies because I don't have time to get good at anything before moving on to the next thing! I am mad at myself for wasting all of the free time that I used to have before the twins!

My friend Meghan is always trying to get me to try new recipes and I want to-I really do Meghan. Mike would appreciate not eating cereal for dinner several nights a week.
I also want to sew every cute thing I see and have to stay out of Strawberry Patches. I buy so many patterns and yards of fabric that I'd be embarrassed to let you see my office.
I want a garden too. I started a small herb garden while I was pregnant but it exploded out of the pots in the corner of our yard. Mike just trimmed it all back (he isn't a fan). I used the herbs only a few times-to make herbed butter once. It was tasty.
I have a huge stack of books that I want to read too.
See! I can't concentrate of one thing. I get scattered and jump from one thing to another. I have big plans to read, cook or sew after the boys go to bed or when they nap. I usually end up cleaning, pouring a glass of wine or running out of energy before I can get started.
Most recently, I took a photography class. It was so fun and I loved every minute of it. I've been taking a ton of pictures and I'm now learning photo shop so I can edit them and add fun things to them. I love our baby announcements and Christmas card done in photo shop and have been dying to learn this tricky program. I changed the blog header to something I learned in my photo shop class-yay! Here's another . . .

I'll keep posting pictures of the new things I learn in my class if I don't lose interest. (Mostly for Granny Babb who checks the blog for pictures of her great grand babies every day)

I'm thinking of making exercising my new hobby. Maybe . . .

Okay, so now I want to learn how to use the photo shop program that you're using! All of your picture creations look amazing! I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0... is that the same program you're using?
