Taste Crisis

I feel like I'm in the middle of a 'taste' crisis. I browse the digital scrapbook stores, seeing varying styles and none really seem to appeal at the moment. Not enough to buy any which is good for my pocket book for awhile. 
I look at my friends art, totally enamored with some yet not knowing how to begin to do something similar.
I'm feeling very unsettled. Perhaps I should be out working in the garden...

Today I cleaned the desktop of my iMac. I've always created a folder on the desktop titled "Desk cleaned (date)". My current folder was titled Feb 2016. Inside it was various files plus a folder titled Desk Sept. Inside that was another titled On My Desk July. Inside that was another for May 2015. Besides all these folders a ton of files or photos were randomly scattered throughout. 
They haven't all disappeared but I threw a ton of stuff in the trash and backed up others. Right now those folders are still there but I think I'll put them all in one called To Put Away and save that for another day.  (This is to say nothing about the stuff stacked up in my Downloads folder.) Can anyone relate?
I am proud to say that as I cleaned my current desktop off, nothing was added to that folder.
It was nice to look back at some old work with new eyes, even back to 2009 (not sure why some of those things were there.) And I sure looked a lot younger 5 years ago. 
This was a try out of Picsart on my iPad.
It will add layers but not show them for editing after the effect is applied. Sort of similar to iColorama. I'll be exploring it more.


  1. I love the work you are doing. I am always looking for inspiration, and how to's and you always inspire. I wish I had more time to devote to learning and improving. How are you liking the new iPad?

  2. Roxi, I love this image. Yes, we are all different and going through our dips and rises. I have done NOTHING for three weeks as I have been on the road. Cooking a lot at my families at these graduations. You did the right thing, cleaning the desk, and also you should go out in the garden. I can't cure anything, but I will be a willing supporter. You are the best.

  3. I can understand your little crisis. I am going through it in a little different way. I go to the stores, look at pretty things, but not much makes me want to buy it and bring it home. Then all of a sudden ..there it is...and I have to decorate my home with it. Bravo for cleaning up your computer. That's a job. I got a new computer at Christmas and I've been trying to learn how to use it ever since. wow, I love your image today.


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
