The Power of Photoshop

To follow up on my announcement that I'm now offering photo editing and the accompanying contest, below you'll see one of the photos I received from a winner, Jill, from Little Miss Mommy.

It's quite a cool photo, here's the description, straight from Jill:

"This photo was taken at my daughters first birthday party.  We wanted a large venue with a cool theme so we chose an event center that used to be an old historic firehouse.  Here is what their website had to say about the piano.  "The Main Firehouse is a large space perfect for all gatherings and features an available wooden dance floor, large firehouse doors with windows and the infamous piano that the Beatles’ George Harrison played on air during his historic Benton visit in 1962." "

So, this picture is actually of her little girl sitting on the actual piano played by a Beatle! How cool is that?

This is how the picture looked when Jill e-mailed it to me...

And this is how it now looks after I did a little Photoshop magic on it! I cleaned up the background , gave the edge a bit of a burn and applied a little antique-looking action to the color. What do you guys think?

So, if you've go a photo you love, but feel like it could be better, e-mail it to me at asuthernaccent at and for only $10.00 I can do some magic to turn it into a even more loveable shot! You can read more details here!

Thanks Jill for sending this pic and congratulations!


  1. Even more adorable with the editing. Now it's frameworthy!

  2. What a difference! You did an awesome job! I think $10.00 is an awesome deal...I am keeping you in mind!

  3. So talented! I think I might be sending some photos your way - also, any advice on a new camera? (potential blog post for you!) I have an old Kodak, first generation digital, but want to get a new one (technology has changed in 5 years!) What do you use and recommend?

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
