Farewell Picnik, I Barely Knew Ye'

As usual, I'm late to the party, er... in this case, I'm late to the *Picnik*!! I just recently learned about this site and it will be closing down by the end of April!! I played around with some photos tonight and can't help but think about all the neat things I could have been creating up to this date! I have a tendency to be late to functions, so I guess being late to the Picnik site just fits my MO.

Yeah, yeah yeah, I've heard it over and over - it's rude to be late, it's selfish to be late, it's undisciplined to be late. I've heard it from teachers, preachers, conference speakers, business leaders...but I still fight the habit. As a matter of fact, it kind of hurts when friends or family poke fun at me for being late yet again. I wonder if they ever notice the many times I am punctual? Or the number of times I am actually early to fulfill my duties? Hmm, funny I never hear about those times. Anyhoose, I digress!

Back to more positive thoughts! Here are a few silly photos I tried to manipulate tonight while hanging out at Picnik. I hope to have the time to play around some more before the site closes down by April's end. Is there another site which is similar? Can I do this at PhotoBucket?

Just for the record, being late is no more of a sin or more rude than picking on someone publicly for being late...just sayin'! Actually, You know Jewel and Clint both are ADHD and I am pretty sure Jayde will be diagnosed as ADD. She is a lot like you. She FEELS like she is never 'caught up', like she can't get it all done on time, deadlines make her ill, literally. She can focus when it is something she really gets and enjoys, like music, but ...lets just not talk about Math...kay?????
I say all of this to let you know that the more I learn about the symptoms and of ADHD and ADD, I realize we have a lot of it in the family. LOL.

If you find out about another photo editing site, please let me know. I know Photobucket has some editing, I just have a hard time maneuvering (sp?) around it. I get easily frustrated with the picture thing, from downloading from the camera to computer and so on.
It's obviously not one of my favorite things to do!
Have a great week!

Hi Pam,

I guess it's better to be late than to never have shown up to the Picnik at all :)

I just wanted to give you a heads up about an awesome alternative built by ex-Picnikers! It's called PicMonkey! Yep, who doesn't love monkeys? :) We are taking what we learned by creating your old fave and building an even better, faster, stronger photo editor. Check out when you have a chance!

Also, feel free to send me your feedback, feature requests, and, of course, any questions you have!

Can you believe your baby is 14? My how time flies!!!
