Being Creative Without Having Any Talent

My office Christmas party last night has left me fuzzy-brained and bereft of something to write about. So I'll just post this picture of my Incantation rose as rendered as a watercolor sketch by Corel's Paint it! program that I just picked up for $10. Just as much fun as the Photoshop plug-ins.

As a Watercolor Sketch

Anyes: Thank you, but I wish I could actually paint rather than using a computer program, but I'll use anything to be kind of creative.

Dan: Too much party and then back to work in the morning. Wish we could've done it on a Friday, but people were driving in from out of town.

Anne: Thank you and believe it or not, I still have some roses in bloom (not this particular rose, however) and we've already gone way below freeing.

Jane: Seriously? You can hear them play taps from your house? I remember when I lived on post trying to time it to be inside before reveille or taps played.

Di: As does my mother. I think I'll stick to photography and the PS plug-ins.
