Guess who has the flu… Plus contest info and more…

Yep – me. – I just got the flu (apparently not the strain I was immunized against this fall).  Ellie had it on vacation (for the 1st half) – and then had a left over cough.  Apparently the cough gave it to me as I woke up today all achy, coughing, and now have a fever too. 

To make the “glass half full” at least it waited to hit me until our trip was over.  We got mounds of laundry done yesterday.  Now I need to edit 400 something photos, but 1st I need to get some sleep.  So while I prepared to be out of town and have fun stuff for you to read while I was gone, I did not prepare for being sick.  So bare with me a few days. 

Here are a few important things.  Shootsac contest entries are due Wednesday by midnight.  I have gotten VERY FEW entries – so there is an excellent chance to win still – come on procrastinators!!!  Yes – this means you.  Be creative and get your entry to me.

And since I have not edited photos to share with you, I will share these.  The 1st is from a customer, Peggy, who was thanking me for the CURVES WORKSHOP she took.  She shared her adorable dog shot – as a before and after – showing me how she edited this using curves.


And lastly, someone sent this photo in to me the other day and asked if I could show them what the MCP Eye Doctor, Magic Skin set and Complete Workflow could do for this shot.  Here is the before and after. The MOTRIN is wearing off – I bet climb back in bed.  Thanks – Jodi

    Sorry you’re sick. That is no fun at all. Get better soon.

    (I’d enter the contest but I already have a Shootsac and so it is only fair to let someone who doesn’t have one have a chance to win!)

    hope you are well soon Jodi … make sure to stop those immunisations .. it’ s just a big money making business …
    plenty of fluid and perhaps ginger lemon tea to keep you refreshed .. lots of love and care .. and of course rest ..

    the before and after image is just amazing :)

    maybe I should look into the shootsac comp too last time I won one somewhere else I never received it :)

    take care and much love to you

    Feel better Jodi. Thanks for posting Gabby’s pictures. Now, I am encourage to go back and fix all those other “desperately in need of curve” fixes. I am also showing friends all the wonderful actions I have … expect to see some new business soon.

    Awe bummer – was really hoping Ellie would be the sole victim in your house. If your home is anything like ours, Mom getting sick is the worst possible illness scenario. It only takes a couple of days to realize that she can loose a wingman or two and still keep things flying pretty well but when Momma goes down, we all go down! Get well soon.
