Fab prompt from

Writer’s Workshop!

Skeedaddle right over to visit!

She has 5 choices each week.

I picked this one:

Write a story in exactly 101 words. (winner gets a 25 dollar gift card!)
(inspired by Jennifer from The Peterson's Go Public)

I hope your Thanksgiving is very happy!

What is your Thanksgiving specialty.

My family asked me to please

refrain from bringing anything….

so I just contributed some groceries.


MAN, I wish I could cook!

Count your blessings!

‘You say grace before meals.

All right.

But I say grace

before the concert and the opera,

and grace before the play

and pantomime,

and grace before I open a book,

and grace before sketching,

painting, swimming, fencing,

boxing, walking, playing, dancing

and grace before I dip

the pen in the ink.’

~G.K. Chesterton

Such a great reminder…

I think the software is Nik Software but it isn't a one click editing program it is a filtering program that allows you to very simply change the effects of your picture.

Email me a copy of one of your pictures you are trying to edit and I can do a step by step on photoshop on how I fixed the "blemishes". It is really easy. It would only take you a few minutes to do. Let me know what program you are using to edit.

NiK Software is real expensive too. It is $350.00 so it may not be something you want to buy if it is just for the photoshoot you took. It is totally amazing though! It really is!

Let me know! My email is Email me a copy of the picture and I can see what to do with it
