The Wearin' of the Green....



No, I'm not Irish....at least not that I'm aware of but my kids are half Irish so does that count?

I've never been one to celebrate St. Patrick's Day very much since I don't like corned beef and cabbage (I'm a vegetarian) and I don't like beer, green or otherwise, and I also don't like Irish, or any other kind of, whiskey. I can't dance very good so a jig is out of the question, and green really isn't my color! So I guess it's a good thing I'm not Irish!

But I couldn't let the day go by without some kind of acknowledgement so after a long session with Lisa where I learned so many things, I am now able to navigate around my new program and actually do painting with it!! I made something "green" to celebrate.

Here's proof that I can actually use my new toy! I took one of my ladies and put some color on her. Now please remember this is my very first try at this. I chose Lettuce Lady because she looks good in green!

Here she is before....



And here she is after a few minutes with my new toy....



Isn't that cool? Poor HB may not see much of me for a few days! I'll be locked in the office, hogging all the computer time while I paint and play! I did Lettuce Lady in just a few minutes so she isn't perfect but I wanted to let you see what I was able to accomplish after only a short amount of time and some great instructions from Lisa. Thank you, Lisa!!!

  4. How cool is that! Wonderful. Thank you Lisa for all the wonderful teaching you've done and see Janet, it isn't that you are stupid or any such thing, you just need a one on one instructor. That is great!

  5. I'm half-Irish and vegan so I'd have trouble with the meat and dairy dishes too.

    Well done on your Lettuce Lady, Janet! Very nice ~ :)

  10. Janet, she's GORGEOUS - she's wearing my favorite colors - green AND purple!
    These new toys you and Lisa have found, are fantastic. I love what you are doing with it - makes me want to win the lottery more than ever, lol. But guess I'll just have to save up.
    Though I don't drink green beer or whiskey, green or otherwise, I've always liked the day for all the Irish music and silliness, and getting to wear green (my co-favorite color - it shows off purple so well, lol)...Though I've been eliminating meat from my diet, I do tend to fall off the veggie wagon on holidays for these traditional feasts that I end up cooking for the family...
    Anyway, Happy St. Patrick's Day -and I'll be back in a few days.
    I tried to get onto your blog the other day, and it wouldn't come up. Glad I tried again before going, I wouldn't have wanted to miss seeing your Lettuce Lady!

  22. You lettuce lady is beautiful! I think you've come a long way from the "frustration" post of the other day. So glad that Lisa is using the same thing and could help you over some humps.

    All technology is so frustrating to me -- but I'm a tinker'er -- so I just turn it on, mess, fuss, lots of times lose a buncha stuff and eventually... My hubby is always on me to actually use the tutorial dvds or to search YouTube for "how tos", but I'm so lame about it.

    Anyway, really glad you are starting to have fun with it and not just frustration. It really can be amazing after it begins to bend to one's own manipulation, you know?

    Lots of gooooood tinkering and figuring vibes to you -- the lettuce lady is a good indication that you definitely have vision for using the tools! Paint On!

    Miracles,
