My New Glasses :)


Okay...this is a new experience for me.I really don't like to have my picture taken cause I am never happy with my looks and believe me..the older I get ..the less I like them.LOL Talk about over the hill goes down fast.My profile pic was from last August 1st. No lie!LOL Told you I was 54 and over weight...hehe but....I wanted to show you the new glasses I got today . Yes...that is really the color of my eyes...a grayish color..sometimes a little green mixes in according to what I wear.:) It took us a while to find a pair of glasses I was happy with though...cause they told me I needed a larger lense since I needed bifocals. I know they make the ones that are progressive but they told me since I get motion sickness real easily..that it wouldn't be a good idea. Jim said he got sickish when he first got his progressive trifocals and said I definitely wouldn't be able to adjust to them cause..he never gets sick and it was really hard for him to get use to his new glasses. When I say I get motion sickness..I mean if you move the screen around..I get nauseated. No..I do not play action video games.:) I think it has something to do with my equalibrium.When Jim and I were dating as teenagers we went to the fair one night and I rode in one of those rides where you stand up and it goes around real fast in a circle.Well..I was sick for three weeks after that and lost twenty pounds and three weeks of school too. Ever since then..I have had this problem. My joy of riding rides ended that night.:) I love watching others ride them though.hehe I can play some computer games if the screen stays put and there isn't a lot of movement to it.Good old solitaire...JK ....I love word games and puzzles etc...just don't move the pieces too fast.hehe
Anyway... this is me..like it or not.:) Be kind!!LOL
Hugs,
Valinda

Valjs Floral QP 8-14-08

Here is another "2400x2400" Floral Qp I made for us.:) I LOVE the way the background seems to glow and the highlights on the roses is pretty cool too. Isn't it fun when you are surprised like that by something you did accidentally?LOL Click on the preview for a closer look.It doesn't do it justice in this small one.:)

Thank you ALL so much for the wonderful comments you have left for me.I sure appreciate your taking the time to do that. You are most welcome.:)

My glasses came in yesterday and Jim and I are going to go get them this afternoon when he gets off of work.I will let you know if I can see any better with them.:) Sure hope so.!

I spent the day yesterday scrapping. I am working on a scrapbook from our trips to the aquarium.I plan a hybrid one and a digital one.I have seen some really cute ocean and sea kits and Qp's out there while browsing and have collected a few...and am looking forward to using them. I spent yesterday working on the hybrid one. It was a lot of fun. When I learn how to take pics without the flash showing up in them..I will show you some of the pages I have made.LOL

Not much more happening ..so will get right to the freebie.
