Little Grand self portrait

PicMonkey is a free photo editing program on the Internet that I enjoy playing with.  These are photos taken through my kitchen window of the little grand drawing her self portrait with window chalk.  She was drawing a self portrait, I was washing dishes in the sink right in front of her.  She got this far and I said, wait - picked up a camera - and asked her to hold her real arms out for the finished portrait.  [Sigh, smile].  I loved it and am so grateful it was captured before the rain mixed the colors together a few days later.


  1. I'm a big PicMonkey fan. I was using Picasa for a while (and still do sometimes), but PM seems so much easier and intuitive to me.

    I've also started dabbling around with pixlr-o-matic, which is also free. It doesn't give you the same level of control as PM, but it does have more filters and such. If you want to try it out, you can find it here:

    And, your granddaughter is cute; nice that she's still at an age where she'll cooperate with those impromptu photo ops. ;-)

    1. Thanks for the link to pislr-o-matic. I enjoy trying new things and will check it out. Right now, as a matter of fact!


Gosh, I really love it when you leave comments...It feels all warm and fuzzy. :)
