15 FREE Online Photo Editing Sites

Researching for this post I found sites I didn't know were out there. Some are simple and some are more complex and a knowledge of editing with layers is needed but all are worth the time to look into and see which site will best fit your needs.

I saw this acronym (T.G.I.M.) the other day in my Facebook feed and it really resonated with me. I can't help but wonder if our perpetual self talk sometimes sets us up for failure.

This very simple template can be so effective when it comes to trying to getting some sort of structure for your week. I have used this on and off for *ahem* over a decade now and find that I turn back to it when I feel life getting a bit out of hand.

From Humble Beginnings .... Jen Kennedy

How it all started ....

I first discovered “Facebook” as a selling platform in 2010.  Before then I didn't “do” Facebook and had no idea about the growing handmade community on Facebook.  When I started out I was lucky enough to be supported by more established pages.  Their support and advice was invaluable in establishing my own page.

In mid-2011 I went to Brisbane to catch up with some family and while there was lucky enough to meet up with some ladies I’d “met” via handmade on Facebook.
