Because Someone Asked

After Monday's post, with the picture of "Montana Squirrel," I've received several questions about where I get my pictures? While I'm not a graphics designer, I must admit that I do work up most of my graphics myself (with the exception of the main blog design, which was done by Everyday Mommy Design. Thanks, Jules!) And it's something I've learned to do since I started blogging.

I use an open-source program called the GNU Image Manipulation Program, or GIMP. And I learned/am learning how to use it from Frank Turk's GIMP University blog.

As I said, I'm no expert, but I've learned enough to turn these three pictures...

Into this.

And, believe me, if I can do it, so can you!
