I learn, therefore I am!

 I learn, therefore I am!

You are going to see one of the new things I learned how to do today thanks to a pin I discovered on Pinterest today. I knew what it was called but I had no idea what it took to create one. Plain and simple, I needed a watermark for my photos. You know, the think you see on photos that you better not remove.

It’s almost like the “DO NOT REMOVE” tag on pillows and such. You remove it even though it says not to just to be an a hole. A watermark is much more serious though. Watermarks on photos are intended to identify your copyright and is supposed to prevent unauthorized copying of photos. So in other words, don’t use this without my permission!

A Pinterest post to the rescue!

I happened upon Hannah’s website thanks to a pin added to my Pinterest feed recently. I read through the whole post and then got to work. I am very familiar with PicMonkey and knew it would be easy to do. If you have never used PicMonkey I highly recommend you do so right away. There are so many options.

It literally took me less than five minutes to complete my watermark. It took me a couple more minutes to apply it to the picture I am sharing in today’s post. Hannah’s directions were very easy to follow that a monkey could do it. The best thing about this is that I can make changes at anytime and it was F R E E!

I would love to hear what you think!

The Top 10 Reasons I Love the Holidays

For my very first list I present the top 10 reasons I love the holidays.

1. Cold weather. This is by far the best thing about this time of year, especially living in AZ.
2. Baking goodies. Who doesn’t love making cookies and pies? I overindulge more at this time of year.
3. Shopping. Hello, maybe this should have been number 1! I spoil my girls and myself.
4. Wearing boots. Secretly I like not having to worry about on point pedicure/shaving my legs.
5. Visiting the snow for the weekend. We do this every year and even bring the dogs.
6. Wearing red, green and anything sparkly. Need I say more?
7. Scarves. One of the best accessories on the planet and perfect for the holiday season.
8. Everything pumpkin! Candles, pie, cookies, bread, lotion, etc.
9. Decor. I really love seeing the creativity that other people possess. It makes me jealous and happy!
10. Getting gifts. I am shameless when it comes to this one. I even make a list for my boyfriend.
