Happy St. Patrick's Day

Don't forget to wear green or the leprechauns might pinch you! I don't think I'll be seeing any leprechauns today, as it's not a school day. ;-) Even so, I'll partake in the wearing o' the green. There's a little Irish in me on my father's side. Maybe I'll download some Celtic music to listen to whilst I write me last two papers? Sounds like a fine idea.

Yesterday, I had my first photofacial. I had decided last summer that I would do this to combat the redness in my skin. I've never had a dermatologist look at my skin before, but I'm pretty certain that it's a form of rosecea. All the research I did about rosecea indicated that topical treatments weren't effective and that IPL technology was the best treatment. I'll tell you it's a bit startling because the light is SO BRIGHT - even with eye goggles on! But the discomfort was minimal. My face was pretty red initially, but aside from a few brown spots (expected), it's looking and feeling normal today. The technician said it would take about a week for me to see the results. I am so not into needles and surgery, but I think IPL and laser treatments are wonderful ways to treat the signs of aging in a mostly non-invasive way. So, I'm excited to see how this turns out.

I ordered a copy of iRemember in an attempt to begin digital scrapbooking in the near future. When I looked into digital scrapbooking software last year, there really wasn't anything easy-to-use (for dummies like me) out there designed for Macintosh computers. This product has since been released and I hope I'll be able to do some fun things with it.

Well, I think that's about it. I need to eat some breakfast and get to work on those assignments. I will also have the pleasure of going to the dentist today for a teeth cleaning. I love going to the dentist! Really, I do!

Have a good weekend, everybody!

    Happy St. Paddy's to you! Good luck with your papers today and with the dermatologist as well.
    I went to the dentist this week as well and it scares the daylights out of me each time. Luckily, I was free and clear from any cavities. :)

    Well the leprechauns visited my house making some mischief in our house last night.
    My 5 yr old LOVED the little things such as the lamp on the kitchen table, their toothbrush holder on the stove just to name a couple.
    They had one "visit" their kindergarden class on Friday and as she says "the leprechaun trashed our class room" LOL.
    So I think it is time our little bit of irish blood makes an appearance each year.

    I love the vintage images that you use. Do you mind me asking where you get them? I bought iRemember ahwile back and didn't like it at all. I'm not saying you won't, but that was my experience. I much preferred this program that I found online that is called photoprinto. I didn't even have to wait for it to ship, as I downloaded it off the web as soon as I paid for it. Also, I tried out a free trial of it for three months and made some very cute pages before purchasing it. Here's the website: http://www.smileonmymac.com/photoprinto/screenshots.html

    I want to know how the digital scrap booking works out for you. It seems so complicated but I really want to do it too.

    Let us know what you think about digital scrapbooking. I am a big scrapbooker and my husband recently purchased a digital scrapbooking software pack for me, but I haven't looked at it yet. I hope that it's a lot of fun.
