Karma's When I Feel Like It Blog

What I’ve been up to this week…

Both of my lovely young ladies went to our local high school’s senior prom this week. Meghan is a senior, of course, and Sarah went as the date of a senior.

The girls and their dates:

Then yesterday, during monsoon-like weather, was graduation. I don’t have nearly all the pictures I’d like, and many that I do have a very blurry due to the bad lighting and the distance away from the stage I had to sit.

Somehow it still doesn’t seem real! High school is over for my older daughter. Wow!
ETA: I forgot to add this shot when I published this post yesterday. Another exciting event this week was the visit of my brother-in-law and his wife (is my husband’s brother’s wife my sister-in-law? I never know how far the “in-law” thing extends, lol!) They live in Alaska, so visits are few and far between unfortunately. Alaska is definitely on my bucket-list of places to visit. We need to plan a trip before they retire and move away!

I have been taking some pictures here and there for the iHeartFaces photo challenge/hunt I suggested to you last week. I’m trying to find an easy way to create photo collages without too much issue or having to download more software if I can avoid it. If you have a suggestion for me, please feel free to leave it in the comments for me! Picasa has been suggested by the lovely Robin. I have an issue with it however: when I open Picasa, it seems to attempt to upload all the thousands of photos I have saved on this computer. I really don’t want it to do that – is there a way to stop that process? I’d love to hear from anyone with thoughts about these issues. Thank you!

  4. Your daughters get prettier every year, Karma! Can’t believe Meghan has graduated. What a milestone for the whole family! Tell her your blogging family are cheering her on, too. Also nice that your in-laws were able to visit all the way from Alaska.

  6. Wonderful photos. Your daughters are beautiful. 🙂 Alaska is on my bucket list, too.
    As for Picasa, I don’t think there’s a way to stop that process. It doesn’t duplicate/copy the photos (or at least I don’t think it does). There might be some online places where you can put together a collage. I’ll check next time I use Pixlr or Picmonkey.

    • Just checked. You can create a collage on PicMonkey. (www.picmonkey.com) Some of the features are free.

      • Thank you Robin! Thanks very much, too, for looking in to that. I appreciate it and will check it out.
