Just Call Me Brenda-Barbie!

You all are being allowed in on my slow ascent into Photoshop stardom! Actually this amazing piece of inspiration you see was not done on PS (still need to watch the tutorials) but through other things on my marvelous Mac.

I realize it is a mess, I did not figure out how to erase the grey around Barbie's bubble head. But that is not why I am showing this to you & putting aside all my dignity for a moment.

I'm posting this because after spending a good amount of time working/playing around with putting Barbie's head on my shoulders, I laughed out loud at myself! Here's the funny....why in the world did I put her head on MY BODY? It's HER BODY that I want & crave. (That sentence could really be wrong if taken out of context.)
I mean really! My head & hair are not so bad, but oh man, I am totally exasperated with my bod & it's new found menopause lumps, bumps & jiggles!

The only drawback to having her body is that I'm not crazy about wearing only high heels all the time!


  1. This is hilarious. I like it this way.

  2. I love how much fun you are having with this!

  3. I really need to learn all about the capabilities in my I-Photo. It's always been one of those things I want to get around to, but always ends dead last to everything else. I think it's so funny about the head and body image in the photo! Yeah, most of us are envious of that tiny little waist and not the bubble hair do, LOL!

  4. I crave Photoshop but only have Paint. And I suck at that...

  5. Your server rejected my last comment as undeliverable so I'm trying again...

  6. Also, where's you email? You need to put it on your blog...

  7. LOL! Barbie's feet remind me of how my foot looks when I wake up in the middle of the night with a charlie horse!!
    Her hair is kind of stiff too, but I'd LOVE to have her boobs!

  8. Susan, you emailed me and DIDN'T HAVE A RETURN EMAIL on it. THAT is why I tell new bloggers to link their emails.

    Check out the last 2 comments on my blog from Friday. 'Jackie' did the same thing as you, left me without an email or a profile. (you do have a profile tho) Even tho she won the contest she has made me do SO MUCH EXTRA work trying to track her down that I am really annoyed. And now I have to track you down because the personal email I wrote you had NOWHERE TO GO!

    New bloggers, enable your emails! When you have more experience blogging, you'll understand why.
