I did quite a bit of research and am trying IntenseDebate as my new comment form. Let's see if it works - shall we?
It worked! Now let's see if I modify the post - will it still work?

So of course I googled it:) What did I do before google? seriously.
Picnik is a cool *free* website that you can use to tweak your photos. It has some of the same "tweaks" as Picasa but a lot more AND there are cool graphics, picture frames, and fonts! I recently purchased PhotoShop CS3 but since I'm not at 100% of knowing what the @#%@ I'm doing - this is super cool! It has a lot more fonts than I currently have downloaded and I haven't quite figured out how to do picure frames in CS3 yet - do I have to buy those? Anyway - I hope I don't just use this software as a crutch and not learn more/use my expensive CS3 anymore!
Here is a picture I messed around with and added text, boarders, picture frames, tweaks - etc. I'm not sure why I choose the picture or what the hell I was writing, but it was an experiment and I was short on time - okay? Don't judge:) I will work on a "real" picture later. Until then - here it is.... Beautiful, huh?:)

So I am embedding a slideshow of our brand new Digital Holiday Cards from my gift shop, Swagger Gifts. I am super excited about them because they aren't your "typical" holiday card - they have cool patterns and the pictures are printed on card stock instead of the flimsy picture paper you would get at somewhere like Eckerds. AND they are 30% off until November 10th - yeah!!
So without further ado -let's see how this slideshow works shall we?
Here is the Slideshow with Extra Large 600x pictures:
Here is the slideshow with Large 400x pictures:
Looks like the 400x wins. The pictures aren't huge but I guess you can see them all right. What do you guys think? Any suggestions?

So AnYwAy, since I last posted, I moved to Zurich, Switzerland! My husband and I are over here for 1 year and we are loving every minute of it! Since moving, I have really been trying to keep all my friends and family back "home" up to date with our day to day life and travels on my travel blog.
I wasn't sure how it was going to work out running Swagger, my gift shop, from this side of the pond but it has been wonderful! I hired a really amazing store manager and the store is thriving without me (does that mean I don't have to work much when I come back?)! I have had the opportunity to became less attached to the day to day operations of Swagger and have been able to do more ecommerce stuff and keep up with our Let's Talk Shop blog, too!
This past week I decided to make all my blogs PRETTY! I love my friend's blog - Erin McLean Events - so I started there. I found out she uses a shabbyblogs.com background so I made me way over there! Wow - talk about beautiful stuff! This is one talented lady for sure! How do you like my new background? So cool - right? You can get one too for free - and if I could figure out how to do it - anyone can!
From this website I found a link to KevinandAmanda.com and found some awesome fonts! I haven't quite figured out how to change the font on my title bars yet..... but I am working on it! Stay tuned!
I just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to all the wonderful bloggers out there who try to make the blogosphere a pretty place - FOR FREE! You guys ROCK! My little corner has now been beautified!

ANYWAY, the point of my story is that I am so bored when I look at myself in the mirror that I knew I HAD to get some new makeup. If I put on that same damn eyeshadow one more time I was going to scream! So today I walked my happy ass to the local MAC counter to buy a new eyeshadow - that should help with the boringness right? Well one eyeshadow:
One Long Lasting Lipstick in Clingpeach - I LOVE this stuff - it literally doesn't come off - amazing! (And my mother always said that I looked dead without lipstick - thanks mom!:))
And one blush in PeachyKeen
So who knew the blush was where it's at? Holy crap! I've never worn blush before - I always used a bronser - but as the salesgirl pointed out - bronser makes you look tan but it doesn't make you glow! So yeah - now I glow! And it only cost me $50 total! Now that is a bargain! Hell - I guess I could have looked into Botox! Turning 30 is a bitch!;)
