Are You Sick Of Pictures Yet?

Sunday, March 04, 2007

A few months back, I found a blog. At first I liked the blog because of the photos, Ree takes beautiful Photos. Then as I read more and more of her posts I became a silent Ree fan. I lurk because she has so many commenter's that whats the point, eh?

So, when I finished Blue Boys cross stitch, I got out the patterns for Stuperman And Rainbow man. ThenI decided I could not do them because Stuperman was eight months old in the pattern, and RM was 5 years old. They had changed a LOT in the past two years. (Blue boy hasn't really changed)

I took a few pics and then emailed Ree from Confessions of a Pioneer Woman and asked her if she would work her photoshop magic on the boys' pictures. Boy is she good! I highly recommend stopping in at Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, if only for this post!*

Here are the before and after pictures. Way.Too Cool.























So, Ree, If you are reading this;


It should also be noted that Rainbow Man has a video up on his blog. He asked me to tape him while he talks about his hair and earings...uhm yea. Don't look at me that way, I'm just his mom!

WOMAN! You must post some sort of warning or disclaimer before you link to a post about cinnamon rolls, especially one full of glossy, sugary, delicious pictures...That was just cruel. (sniffle)

Monkee Sorry about that, I added a warning as per your request.

I think charging me a dozen corn dogs for the advice is a bit too much, donlt you think?

Hi! Thanks for link hopping over to visit me. I love link hopping almost as much as blogging!

Ree did a fantastic job on your boys. BTW...I always liked my angels asleep best, too!

I've only recently gotten brave enough to play in photoshop. I find that, if nothing else, just hitting auto contrast makes a world of difference! The thing to remember is to make a duplicate copy first. Then you don't have to worry about screwing up your original =)

Your boys are just too cute! Love their photos...

uhm thanks for the warning, but I clicked there anyway - and just looking at the photo gained 10 pounds... looks sooo good!

I never comment on a blog that gets a lot of comments either :)

Tracey No problem! I should try the auto adjust thing!

Fantastagirl are you gonna make them? Huh? Huh?

Shelli I happen to agree. and so does Stuperman, particularily when he is wearing his red pumps

Monkee You beast

Blogarita IRL their eyes are red, we use contacts to hide them

Marilyn how many comments is too many?

I was just being silly. I'm so new at this and it seems like you get so many comments...

Oh, I love your blog. It's so pretty! And you love Ree too... that's good enough for me! :^D I'm one of her blabbery commenters that's been there since she started blogging.

And folks, she's right about these cinnamon rolls. They are to die for (or of)

:^)
Nice to "meet" you.
