About a week ago I commented on one of Abi's (Spiderwoman Knits) posts. In turn she took my comment and blogged about it. Read it and then look at my pictures. Those are 100% real. I'm a master in making things look better then they are. Isn't that part of the fun though?
Blogging is like daydreaming your own life.
I will stand behind a person to make myself look slimmer. I will push away the clutter to one side and photograph a project in an apparently clean and tidy house. I will photograph myself 10.000 times until I am slightly satisfied.
I would never photo-shop myself or my kids though. Boyfriend dear once opted: 'I love that picture of Wee One, let's enlarge it. I'll just 'shop' that crumb from his face.' My jaw dropped down. There's a lot of ways you can photo-shop your life, but you'll have to make real memories. With real memories go real pictures. With real people on them.
(I was planning to post a picture of my face early in the morning, I hope you'll forgive me for chickening out...!)
