Does anyone have any suggestions on a link that makes this simple on Photoshop Elements??
I really wanted to do this because of the amazing beauty of this great feather. The colors and design.... well someone pretty amazing must have created this. Meanwhile, I just can't seem to put this together. ANY THOUGHTS OR SUGGESTIONS FOR EASY INSTRUCTIONS.

Sorry I have not been around too much this past week, but have still been struggling a bit with the last weeks of my job, before I have some time off, and then change to a job with much fewer hours weekly. Think I have shortimers syndrome, and don't seem to have too much time or energy after finishing my 12 hour work days! Can hardly wait to be finished with this, but still have 6 weeks to go... well that is 2 weeks less than it was. A few days ago, I worked in Dallas, and decided to go downtown after work and take a look at a church that I had been admiring from the freeway. I love how this old and lovely church stands against this more modern, and glass building. Especially love the reflections of the church against the glass building, but was really not able to photograph the reflections well because of all of the big trees around the church. Looked like a piece of the past right in the present.
Hope that all of you are having a great weekend. It is the first weekend here when it really has the look of spring, although we still had a cold snap this past week where we nearly reached freezing. Hard to believe in May, in Texas that this is possible. Hope to be back soon on a more regular basis, and plan to spend alot more time with my photography in the near future.

I did turn in my resignation in the medical group I work in!!!
And it felt sooooo good that I know it was the right decision. I also accepted a new job which will be fewer days a week, and I will have total control over the days that I am working. This in itself will be a major change for me, and will give me the option of having a longer gap when I am not working.... 6 days off between days I am working sounds just awesome.
So just 60 days ( well it is 57 now) until I will be finished with the job that I have, then a much better schedule.
I was out yesterday walking on a nature trail that I enjoy, and saw all of these little creatures so busy, and thought how they just take one tiny step, or flight at a time , and yet they get so much accomplished. That is my goal right now... one small step at a time!!!!
Again, thanks so much for the support and encouragement!!! Hope all of you are having an awesome spring weekend

Have had several opportunities to be out and just enjoying the lovely newness of this season, which is one of my favorite times of the year. So amazing to see everything suddenly turning from the browns of winter, to lovely greens and pastels.
Thank you so much to Nancy for hosting this lovely meme and also for the amazing textures.

I have been thinking alot about this as I am getting closer and closer to trying to plan my retirement. I am still working 4 days a week, and the job I have has become increasingly taxing to me, as the scheduling in the clinic I work in has become more and more full every day... this added to many reponsibilities with medical records that involve almost all of my home time on the days that i work, and even many hours on my days off.
Just this past week, a new job opportunity has come my way... one which will involve fewer work days, and also less money... ( why do they have to throw that in..LOL), but also much much more flexibility in my own input in to my schedule ( which I currently have no control over). Am I ready for this... Can I tell what exactly this will mean for my future? No, but I also have to put TRUST in to the equation.. Trust that I will be fine, and this will be a positive move for me, in order to keep BALANCE in my own life. Something that i am struggling with right now in my current position.
Have others of you experience this struggle as you got ready to move forward with partial retirement! How did you handle your thinking on this? Was it scary moving forward, or did it just feel RIGHT TO YOU?? Trying to move forward with total TRUST as this is coming up very soon ( almost immediately) in my life. Exciting, but also change.... makes me wonder if I will think "WHO MOVE MY CHEESE"?? as in the book, when this happens. Would love any of your feedback on this.
