Wicked In This Place- If I Was At Home Right Now...

...there would be many things I could enjoy doing. Currently, I sit someplace away from home. I am not allowed to leave this place until my chariot (husband driving my Hyundai) pulls up around the five o' clock hour to get me. This place I am in pays me to be here so I will not just go home whenever I please (though it would be great if I could). The place I am in physically cannot be named since it may implicate me and get me into trouble (but would it really be trouble to be sent home?) There is no place like home!

These are the things that I would do if I was strapped to a computer (similar to my present situation) only that PC is at home. At home, I am not monitored by "the man" and I do not have super security walls blocking cool things I could view while surfing around the web. Oh, anyways, at this very moment these things have peaked my interest:

1. Vinnie Pearce posted a free video she created to instruct folks like me,  how she creates depth on a digital scrapbook page (click here to get there). I am dying to watch this video! Tips from a pro are always great to know. In fact, following tips from digital designers and Photoshop users, not necessarily all experts, is how I have taught myself to crate flyers, cards, monograms and digital scrapbooking projects.

2. Research how to and then create my own signature to use in my online forums. I would use digital scrapbooking elements and paper. I bet I would apply the new knowledge learned from #1.

3. Next, I would make a good salad.

4. Back to the computer, eating said salad, I would create a digital layout using Photoshop Elements. The topic would be "a letter to my teenage self". I would advise myself all of the things that I know now, yet did not know back in those days. In fact, this is the project due for my creative team.

5. I would visit Facebook and send some shout outs to my friends and family.

6. And finally, I would see what type of elements and papers I have that could inspire me to make a layout, journaling my adventures in San Francisco with Gerry. We saw the Broadway production of Wicked!! Finally, because I have waited so long. Seven years ago I read the book so this was a long time coming.

What are you doing today? What do you wish you were doing?

I normally post photos at the begining of my postings. This photo is so good it does not deserve to sit and the bottom of this one but it serves it's purpose. I saved the best for last for my post today. Have a wonderful Friday. I hope you are able to do all things and achieve all things that your heart desires today.

Did you know that there are several different illustrators who have designed covers for the book The Wizard of Oz? Here are a few of my favorites: (The illustrators name is also listed next to each one)
