Digital Scrapbooking Layout

I am having difficulty posting an image in my previous post, so I am adding it here. I am still learning how to manipulate this blog.

Two of My Favorite Things

We adopted a retired racing greyhound last November named Belle Starr. We had never owned a dog. I never knew that greyhounds were so mellow. You would expect such a fast animal would be high-strung. Not at all. While there are exceptions, most greyhounds are laid-back couch potatoes. But they do love their walks and an occasional run. Belle is the best companion we could have ever asked for.
We adopted her from the most wonderful group, Blue Ridge Greyhound Adoption. We just had our annual picnic and had lots of lovely hounds. One of the most amazing things is that even at a park full of greyhounds, they are very quiet. They rarely bark. They sniff and say hi to one another, but that is it. 

Another of my favorite things is digital scrapbooking. I enjoy the creative process of putting together a digital layout. Of course the best part is being able to tweak it ad infinitum in Photoshop.

Master Gardener Program

Last night I attended an informational meeting for our local Master Gardener's Program. I want to learn more about growing plants suited to our little micro-climate here in Northern VA. Also, I would like to give back to the community by answering homeowner's gardening questions, caring for the demonstration garden, and participating in local events. The bonus is meeting people who love gardening.

Welcome to Artful Synchronicity

I am doing something I thought I would never do... start a blog! Honestly, why add another one to the online world? I decided that creating this blog was my first step in living and documenting a creative life. I have to start somewhere.

So let the creativity begin!
