hearts

I really didn’t like how my photos of conversation hearts turned out.  Maybe I got a bad batch, but the writing was too smeared and messy on the little hearts.  Then I found some sweethearts with valentine’s messages.  Their writing was much neater and they taste way better, too!

I don’t usually like things decorated with hearts, but I made an exception for this heart mug that I found at Target yesterday.  I love the fun colors!

I adjusted the levels slightly in photoshop elements to brighten it up.  It’s not a big difference.  Maybe I should have done more?

And I picked up a really cute little notebook this week.  You know you can never have too many little notebooks.

  9. The hearts are so cute. And drinking coffee in one of those mugs would be very nice.

    I also like buying notebooks maybe I ought to say I collect them because a lot of them are empty!!!

    Thank you for what you did for Laura at Blogging from Bolivia. Your generosity is appreciated.

  12. I love your heart pictures :) I was not fond of mine either-- but I think that is because these types of photos are overdone right now.

  20. I love your second heart candy photo - so simple and pretty. :)

    I think your clean edit with Levels is just fine. You don't always have to add crazy actions or textures to photos to make them look good. Natural beauty rocks, for people and for photos!

  22. I really like how subtle your edit with the mug was. I'm a collector of plants rather than notebooks - notebooks would be a lot cheaper LOL
