Captain Husband and I were so thrilled by the appearance of roses in our backyard that we went out to Lowes two weeks ago and picked up some mulch and rose food and have been diligently watering the bushes every other day in the hopes that some more buds would make an appearance. I was unloading the dishwasher yesterday morning and looked out the kitchen window and was very pleasantly surprised to see that the smaller of the two rose bushes was now boasting a rather lovely bloom on its uppermost branch.
Like many of my photographer friends, I've been mourning the impending loss of one of my favorite online editing sites, Picnik; I've been using Picnik for nearly all of my photo editing and design work for the past year and a half and, well, I'm kind of freaking out a little bit over here at the prospect of no longer having it around. But fear not--the creative minds behind Picnik have come together to create a new editing site--PicMonkey. It's still in the initial design phase, but it has many of Picnik's awesome features as well as a bunch of new ones. I played around with some of its texture overlays and frames and came up with the photo you see above. I'm pretty excited to see what else PicMonkey can do, especially since it's so similar to the Picnik setup that I know and love. Do yourself a favor and check it out!
