My Mother's Day Gift!

I'm so excited, I just have to share!  My daughter Michelle stopped in today and, in addition to bringing me a sweet basket of yellow pansies, made me this:


My new blogger image!  I love it!

Half the fun was watching her create it.  She brought her program along on a flash drive, and I got to sit next to her and breathe down her neck make suggestions while she designed it.  It amazed me to watch her skill with a mouse and a gazillion gadgets in the software.  She knows exactly what does what and is really quick about it.  

In contrast, it just took me an hour to figure out how to add the text at the bottom, after I figured out I didn't have the ability to do that with the original PNG file, which would be much cleaner looking.

I have wanted a different image for quite some time.  I am embarrassed to admit that I "borrowed" the former image from somewhere else.  It's so cool to finally have something original that I can call my own, created by one of my favorite peeps, my kiddo!*

*I can't believe I just used the words "peeps" and "kiddo" (who is 23) in the same sentence.

I just love your new image! I love the pop of color on the bird. Is there a significance to this image?
