MMXII::06

Friday!  I feel a happy dance coming on.  I suppose Friday doesn't really matter as much since I have been working every.single day. for umpteenth hours a day (late into the night), but I am still celebrating. I do have lot's to celebrate--I am reading a fantastic book-Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, I can not put it down. I've stayed up past 1 a.m. for two nights in a row completely engrossed in it. The human spirit is alive and well in this true account and Hillenbrand is an adept storyteller. I  am sure she could write about yogurt coagulation and it would be thoroughly enthralling, I am in awe of her prowess. I am celebrating that I opened my Etsy shop, I just started listing items these last couple weeks and to my shock + delight they sold. I am unspeakably grateful!   The idea for the Etsy shop was to add more of the pre-printed stationery sets that are printed by a master printer (that would be me). Of course right now a lot of the items are overlapping but I plan to add lots more soon. I am awaiting my rented macro lens, I missed Fed Ex today (insert Debbie Downer music here) but they do deliver on Saturdays and I can't wait for some quality time with it. You see? So much to celebrate!

This edit of a Wildebeest-ish animal, (chime in if you know the real name), was inspired by my fascination with antique photo processing. I tried to re-create a sort of Bromoil effect, it was complicated and I am positive there's an easier way to accomplish it, but if there is I haven't figured it out yet.  I did locate an amazing lith print action (free) that I think some of you Photoshop enthusiasts will appreciate.  I will be popping in tomorrow with day 07. 

I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my 'after', you can view the 'before' here.

I'm pretty sure it's a water buffalo. Not sure if it's a Asian or African though.
