Life without photoshop

Life without photoshop

Is Dismal!

I told Gary I am going to D.I.E.

if we don’t get it fixed soon.

He laughed.

He thinks I am dramatic.


Do I seem even a tiny bit dramatic to you?

Of course not, that is silly!

marsha sepia black and white This is a picture of my friend Marsha.

She hates it.

I think she told me NEVER to put it on my blog.

Hopefully she won’t see it!

I think she is so gorgeous!

And here are Kaish and Katie!

In all of their unedited glory!

I love that baby!

And of course I love Kaish : )

Isn’t she delish?

Oh, I love her!

I miss her!

But don’t you just love the happiness?

Those two sweeties belong to my friend George!

He is a super star!

a george 002This is Matt and Alli.

You have seen them before.

I love this picture.

I love those children.

They are angelic!

What is your favorite kid name?

Hopefully you will hear from me again on Sunday.

I mean, if I can survive without photoshop…

‘Through humor, you can soften

some of the worst blows that life delivers.

And once you find laughter,

no matter how painful

your situation might be,

you can survive it.”

Go say hi to Lolli!

I hope you get it fixed soon...although your photos still look great!

Alicia said...

LOL, you're so funny!! I would have posted the picture too anyway!!!

So..this is probably a DUMB question...but do people use Photoshop if they only have a regular digital camera?? Or is that a total waste?

Martha in PA said...

All great shots! I hope you get Photoshop fixed soon!

Favorite kids name hmmmm? I guess I'd have to say TARA!!!!

smiles4u said...

These pictures are beautiful and your friend Marsha is flippin gorgeous. I don't have a favorite kids name. I love all kids!

Laurie said...

Your blog makes me feel so good ...always peaceful over here.

Even without Photoshop!

Echoing the rest here ....your pic's are great anyway. Purely happy.

Marsha is gorgeous. She should LOVE that picture.

Thanks for always lovely quotes too ....

LceeL said...

Are you still getting that same error? Did the link I sent you not help?

blueviolet said...

Regardless, everyone in the photos is beautiful!

Summer said...

I need photoshop....I have a feeling I am really missing out.

And your kids...beautimous.

Your friend, to die for gorgeous!!!

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

I have to ask why you don't have more children? Maybe you have posted something before but you love kids sooooo much! I am surprised you don't have yourself a football team by now at home!!!

Oh and I have to ask you what happened to your photoshop? I am behind on blogs but trying to stay caught up! Doing pretty good at this point!

And also go to my blog and I have an award for you. I think I posted it a couple of days ago! But I think I forgot to tell you! :D

Your photos are beautiful even in there unedited glory! It is hard not having photoshop! Today I had to aquire a new serial # because I didn't have mine for reinstallation on my laptop. Now I can download my photoshop again when I find some time to do that!!!

Lolli said...

I love your assortment of pictures today. And, yes, the girls are just exuding happiness! And Marsha is adorable. You can tell her I said that.

Frau said...

Gorgeous pictures photo shop or not you have a good eye and beautiful subjects too!

Dustjacket Attic said...

You are too funny. No you are not fact you sound like me.

I love that pic of your friend, it is so gorgeous. You could be in big trouble girl!

I love Bill's words of wisdom, he is the best.

Nan said...

I am waaay to lazy to photoshop! Your photos are lovely, though, with or without. Thanks for the comment the other day, I love comments!

Rachael said...

Thanks for visiting my site! I hope you get it fixed...I don't have photoshop yet and I want it sooooo bad!

Cairo Typ0 said...

Hi, stopping by from SITS! :)

I've never had photoshop. These pics look great!

Marilyn said...

Get well soon, Photoshop. You always have cute pictures and wonderful quotes and funny posts.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I have never used photoshop, so are my photos crappy? Gosh, I hope not.
My favorite name: Rebeckah. :)

4 Lettre Words said...

You are so talented that these are still amazing. (Sophia has amazing eyelashes, too, huh???)

I know what you mean, tho, b/c "playing" with the photos is the best part for me.

In the meantime, you can download free PS trials for 30 days...including lightroom. And, I also like for free editing options.

Mighty M said...

You take such wonderful pictures, even without editing them! But, just to keep you sane, I hope you get photoshop back soon! ;-)

I don't really have a favorite name, but the "other" names I might have used for my kids are Zachary and Madeline and I still like them! ;-)

Deb Thaxton said...

-->Tell Marsha she's beautiful. The kids are adorable as well!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Girl, you do NOT need photoshop to put a smile on my face with your wonderful pictures. But I do hope you get it back for your sake!

Have a great weekend. Oh, I don't really have a fav name but of course I love my little boy's - Tristan.

Mae said...

I had to go without Photoshop for a few months once when I had a system crash and no installation disk. It was torture! My boyfriend saved the day and replaced it for me as a gift, thank GOD!

This is one of the most unique blogs I've seen, I really love it! Your pics are so fun... I'll be browsing around for a good long time :)

Thanks for stopping by Peas Love Carrots, too! :)

Nessa said...

Your unedited pictures are wonderful but I do see you fading fast.

Suki said...

Becky go and try lightroom. :) You will love it. :)
And is there no way you can talk Gary into another baby? The cuteness would be awesome to see around here.
Love all your kid pictures.
I love names like Holly, Jenna, Nilay, Shalin, Stellan or Jamie and Jeremiah.

Jen said...

I think those are great photos even if they are unedited.

Kay said...

your photos are still lovely...the spirit soaring!

photography mama of two said...

Tricia Nugen said...

honey! What do you need PS for? look at those pictures! Yea for you! And you could always download it from Adobe for 30 days!

Tricia Nugen said...

I forgot favorite kids name? umm.... does Mophead and Princess count? xoxo!

Rosina said...


That last shot is stunning. The lighting was just perfect. I think i'd like without PS, too..but I agree with many--your photos look gorgeous without it! :)

Christine said...

As always fab pictures! OMG that little Sophia here eyelashes are to die for!!!!

The Royal Family said...

Lydia said...

WackyMummy said...

Photos of kids being happy and angelic (and mischievous) are my favorites. Glad to see so many great ones here! =)

Kathleen said...

I don't think you're being dramatic. At all. And tell your friend Marsha she's beautiful!

Kathleen said...

btw, I meant to add that your photos are still gorgeous without Photoshop; however, I still totally understand!! :-)

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

I wonder why Marsha hates that picture, I think she's pretty too. Love the "happiness" one!

the monkey's mama said...

okay i don't have Photoshop and life is still hunky dory. I use Picnik. It is great!

And, i agree with everyone else--even without PS your pics are great!

PS Loving all the shoutouts from the IHeartFaces website--seems like you were totally the life of the party!

BoufMom9 said...

Beautiful photos! Your friend is GORGEOUS! Not sure why she doesn't like that photo. It's just beautiful :)

I use picnik as well :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Your photos are so perfect you don't need Photoshop-- But I know you want it so I hope it's fixed SOON.

Brittany said...

I love-love-love photo shop.. but my favorite photos are the ones that just happen. My favorite picture of me is the newest one from halloween. It is the center picture on my banner.. I love that Aidyn man is making a face and i'm just smiling. We were happy and silly in that moment. I'll look back twenty years ago, and still remember that he used to make this macho man-monkey face everytime anyone pulled out a camera. (unless i bribe him with candy) I love memories captured by a camera lense... so much better then posed perfect!

You catch that, and I LOVE it!

Grandma J said...

You coulda fooled me about your photoshop being on the lamb. I think your photos always look so professional. I'd die for photoshop...but maybe a new camera is a better investment.

WhisperingWriter said...

I love your photos, even without photoshop!

Unknown Mami said...

Your friend is gorgeous.

My favorite kids name is Put Pie, of course.

I hope to see you on Sunday. It's just not the same without you.

Stephanie Faris said...

Love the pictures! And I think the one with the pink tutus is priceless.

Jennifer Bowen said...

Hello, my favorite blogger friend! I would die without PS, too. So tell Gary you're not being dramatic at all. As photographers, PS is part of our arsenal. Without it, we may as well give up, right? I know I feel that way. =)

My favorite kid name for a boy is Slade and for a girl, Sloan.

Miss hearing from you!

Mama Michie (aka Michaela) said...

The picture of your friend Marsha is great! I would have posted it too. Great pictures - I hope your Photoshop is fixed soon.

JamericanSpice said...

Look at these beautiful children in all their glory.

And I do agree. Your friend is beautiful. She needs to believe it. She might need to hear it more often.

Liz said...

I think your pictures are great! I'm one of those that just likes pictures in all their original glory. But I hope you are able to get your Photoshop fixed soon!

lifeissweet16 said...

I always hate photos of myself. Your friend Marsha looks gorgeous in that photo. I hope my own perception of what I look like in pictures is as skewed as hers. :-)
