Camp News Teaser / Postcard for Little Campers

Good morning,

Kids going off to camp for a week this summer? Check out the postcard I made for my own granddaughter whose going off to "horse" camp in July. (See the full postcard at www.easyaspiedailygraphics.com). She just has to check mark items and drop it in the mailbox. Several cards will come addressed with several different addresses of relatives who wish to know how she's doing, and each will have a stamp afixed. Simple things for kids.

I hope you'll check it out!

Easy As Pie Daily Graphics -- See the steps to finished creations

Good afternoon --

I am on vacation this week! And time off always leads to looking at new ways to promote my site, Easy As Pie Daily Graphics.

Bye, bye ... to the 3 free graphics of the day. Instead, a new approach.

Exercise your own creative bone by seeing some of the ways I come up with my original graphics.

The site has a fairly new look, although some old pages have been left up.

On this Monday, what I have is a "kind of tutorial", showing my step by step creation process.

As you can see from the picture above, a few steps can take you a long way.

This is kalei woman 10. She is a creation I would use.
But this is kalei woman 9, and she is my favorite -- out of the two.

She is noseless for now, but that would be a simple step ... when I have a use for her.

Hope you'll run over and take a look around at the new site. Let me know what you think.

On Thursday, I will be celebrating my 61st birthday; hence the vacation week. I started the tradition last year, and it was so wonderful, that I decided to do it again this year.

I came home sick after 2 1/2 hours work on Thursday. I had a fall a couple of weeks ago, and now my left knee has been "kickin' up a little pain". It was a slow day on Thursday, so I took some sick time. Unfortunately, I was having some back pain from changing my gait, which accelerated on Friday. I spent the day in bed.

I've also found that laying on our new couch is not good for my body. It is not completely flat, and when I lie down, it throws my knees out of alignment. I woke up after a nap yesterday, only to have stiff, painful knees again. It was truly an "ah-ha" moment.

We had a lovely, 2 hour visit, on Father's Day -- yesterday, at my daughters. All fathers were present, or at least the important ones ... and my son and Kathy were there also. It was a wonderful visit as we watched Emma walk around the room and be cute and funny. My oldest granddaughter made a tent in the loft, and we took turns going up to investigate it and sit in it with her. Good job, Taylor.

Hope you all have a great day.

Note: There will not be tutorials showing my creation process everyday. Some days, it will be just a graphic to share. It depends a lot on time, energy, and no problems publishing.

If you like the new idea of sharing the creation process, be sure to drop me a line!
