Let It Snow

Twas December 15, at ten o’ clock at night, and I sat atop my bed wondering what shall I do. Blog some pictures, change my WordPress theme, or just go to sleep?  One look at my abandoned blog and I decided it was time to change the background.  So I puttered about in Photoshop…and two hours later I came out with an ammature snow woman.  Don’t pick on her though, she might be smiling, but she be vicious and attack you with snow balls.

Working Around Adobe Photoshop ME

I’m not into the idea of having two Photoshop’s installed on my computer, an older version for ME and a newer, shinier version just for everything else.  So, I’d occasionally use my sisters computer when I wanted to do something in ‘Arabic, and then one day I accidently found out that I didn’t need to download the ME version of Photoshop or use my sister’s computer anymore!  Awesome!

You can simply download my .psd file, and open it in your regular Photoshop.  Next, open a new document in Photoshop, and copy the text from the .psd file I provide.  Now, select the text you just pasted in and overwrite it with whatever text you actually want to use.

It sounds a bit complicated, but it gets the job done.

For Hajj

Typically I let my OCD control me, and make sure I do not change my theme before the 1st of the month.  But I decided that the 1st of Dhul Hajj would be a good excuse to change it before November.  Besides, I’m not likely to get to it on November 1, cuz I’m really just cool like that.

Keepin’ Life Colorful


Lately I’ve been wearing mismatched jewelery.  Does it really matter if you’ve a amber ring matched with a turquoise bracelet? Of course not.  Well, I was sitting on my prayer mat, and suddenly realized that my look matched my rug.  I am cool enough!  (Of course this does happen to be one of the more crazier colored rugs out there, but it’s as crazy as its owner naturally.)

And then there’s the joy of vintage action sets in Photoshop.  It’s addictive.  I promise.

I can’t remember what the purple stone is, except that it starts with an S and is from Mexico.  Perhaps it’s time to turn to Google.
