glad you stopped in. Are you sure you want the boring
details of who
Well if you haven't hit your back button yet, read on!
For those that
don't know me, my name is Connie and I live in the state
husband, David and I were married in September 1977.
David was in the
Navy at the time so we spent the first two years of our
marriage stationed at the
Meridian Naval Air Base in Meridian MS. It wasn't
too bad of a duty station,
two hours from our
hometown of Batesville. *LOL*
In 1979 when
David's tour of duty was up we moved home to Batesville.
Although Batesville is a nice place to live it just
didn't suit us and the jobs weren't
that plentiful. We moved to Lamesa TX. in 1980 where

son Jeromey in 1985.
was 3 weeks old the company David worked
for transferred us
to Clinton OK. It was
there that I became a Nursing
Assistant and spent the next two years working with the
elderly and raising
Bryan and Jeromey.
In 1987 we decided
to move back to our home state of MS to be closer to our

year we bought our first computer
and the love affair began. *LOL* Bryan was a natural,
taking to the computer like it
was an old friend, I guess that's why he's a Computer
Tech now. *L* It took me
bit more time but as I learned more of the do's and
don'ts I became pretty
comfortable and could do most anything I needed to do.
In 1996 we decided
to take a job David was offered in middle Georgia. Bryan
I continued to enjoy our computer and took the next step
by becoming internet users
in 1997. Although I'd played around a little with
a graphics program that came with
our computer, making newsletters and calendars for our
local home school associations,
it wasn't until "getting connected" *L* and seeing all
the beautiful graphics on home
pages that I
had to figure out how they did them. Almost 7 years ago
first Paint Shop
Pro Program and haven't stopped learning since.
I've tried other graphics programs but have always
come home to PSP. I don't
ever learn all there is to learn about this program.
Just when I think I have
it licked and
can do everything, out comes the new version and it's
starting all over
learning more and more! *L*
I have had the
pleasure of being in several wonderful graphics groups
over the years
and have learned
from all of them and from all the wonderful authors
on the internet that give so freely of their
knowledge. It was because of them that I
started writing my own tutorials several years ago as a
way to "pay back" the
of so many before me.
In August 2003 we
moved back to our home state of Mississippi. It was a
move for us because it meant leaving our oldest son
Bryan in GA. In
March 2003 Bryan had
married the girl of his dreams, Kim. They have started a
wonderful life together in GA.
We miss them terribly but get to visit with them
As you rummage
through my site, I hope you will find things that will
and teach you some of the things I've learned! Feel free
because there will be a lot more to come,
Until you visit
again, God Bless!
