      Made my own stamp set in Photoshop CC! Getting proficient enough to scrap at my old pace is still slow in a new program, though.

        Yay! And you'll get there. Soon you'll know all the tips/tricks/keyboard shortcuts/etc and maybe your pace will be even faster than before!

      Finally made the jump to Photoshop/Lightroom CC. I feel like I knew less than I did when I started digiscrap in 2016.

      I rented Green Book, but this cold is so bad I couldn't follow the plot. Maybe tomorrow.

        How was it? I was about to rent that but felt too tired. I loved Roma and was just kind of whatever about A Star/Boh Rap.

        It was OK for what it was. But I felt that the themes and messages were things we've all seen before. There wasn't a lot of subtlety in it either. Whereas I thought the beauty of Roma was how much it said, and how much nuance it portrayed with a very sparse story and what felt like sparse visuals (because of the black and white).

        Exactly my thoughts Julie on Roma - and why I was bored with Star/Boh Rap ... I've seen these stories so many times before. It didn't feel new (I know Star is a remake - but even without that ... that story seems to be a popular theme in US movie culture. It's played.) The cinematography drew me in for Roma.

    I have two daughters, age 10 & 12. And a husband (he was pretty much born in the middle ages.) I like books, and crafts, and baking and sarcasm. I don't eat meat. Lentils are honestly my favourite food! I write environmental regulations by day, and am a Brown Owl (i.e. Brownie Leader) on Tuesday Nights. Je suis bilingue! Je parle le français même que l'anglais.
