Yes, I changed my background yet again. I prefer this one, I think :) I'm not too sure about the yellow, as it's not really my colour, hmm, we shall see ...

I'm thinking of restarting my cooking/menu/food blog. I've been cooking and doing a lot of new stuff food wise lately and it's holding my interest a little more than digi art etc. right now. I guess, though, that I will have to make a new blog background for the new blog right? It's all relative.

Not much else to say today. I just found out that one of my favourite TV celebrity chefs, Keith Floyd, died a week or two ago. So sad. He was such a character. They are running a tribute show to him on the Lifestyle network. I must remember to watch.

I confess, I love clever use of typography (not surprising, as I love words and all things wordy). So much so, that when our family watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on blue ray the other night, I was far more intrigued with the layout and type used on images of the Daily Prophet, than in the movie (story line lost due to inclusion of special effects, although not as bad as Goblet of Fire, which was pure drivel as a movie).

Anyhow, using words and type to make portraits has been around since forever, and there are some really wonderful modern interpretations using graphic programs. I found this nice and easy tutorial on PSDTopBlog, which I changed a little, as I didn't quite like my end result following the tut verbatim. This is what I came up with, using digi scrap stuff as well.

Spring Cleaning

It's Spring here in the Southern Hemisphere. I'm hoping that the weather of Friday and Saturday is not an indicator of the Summer to come, or I'm going to be a wreck! I loathe the heat and the hottest I'm willing to tolerate on a voluntary basis is around 25 degrees Celsius (that's around 77 Fahrenheit). Unfortunately, I don't have weather control and I have to put up with temperatures that exceed 30 (86) on a regular basis. Blah!

Anyway, as it's Spring, Father of the Moo and I did some spring cleaning the weekend before last. Feeling virtuous, I thought I'd update my blog as well. Let's see how it goes. I might have to change my profile photo too, it just doesn't fit in.
