Talk Time Tuesday with Ask Jo & FFC 8 Winners

Click Here for FCC#9 'Summer Fun Challenge'

Hello my friends!
I hope you are all enjoying your day today. The sun is really shining here and we are expected to get temps of 115 today! Insane! Ah in any case, I am sorry I'm a day late with announcing the Top 3 winners from last week's challenge. My meds really kick my butt sometimes and there are days where I sleep all day and night and that is what happened to me yesterday. So before we get started on today's Talk Time Tuesday segment, let's announce the winning top 3 from last week...

So onto this week's Talk Time Tuesday segment.
Our first question today comes from Dawn aka "D" who asks, "How do you put your name on your post pictures?"
Hi there D!
My name on my photos that I post are watermarks. I get my personalized watermarks by a wonderful woman, Karen from The Sweetest Thing. She has some gorgeous watermarks for only $2. I have purchased several from her over the past year. Now as to how I get them onto my photos. I use a program called Gimp. It's a free application that you can download here and Karen has actually done a tutorial on how to use the program and you can find the tutorial here. If you follow the tutorial, you will be able to work the program. It is extremely easy! If I can do it, anyone can! I hope you give it a try if you decide to get a watermark. =)
Thanks for your question today and I hope to hear from you again my friend!
Our next question comes from Melissa who asks, "Jo I saw that you have a for sale tab on  your blog. What do you sell?"

Hi Melissa,
I was asked by a few friends if I would sell my word books and mini albums because they would love to purchase them and in the past, I used to sell cards and albums. So I decided to go ahead and start it up again but unfortunately, have not put anything up on the for sale posting as of yet. I am taking special orders and make the word books and the mini albums as they come in. I have an order that is actually going out this week and I just got another order for a personalized baby mini album. A friend's daughter is having her first baby boy and she wants it personalized with his name, "Michael". If there is anything you want to order, just email me. I make mini albums, picture frames, word books, card sets and scrapbook layouts and I will be selling kits very soon. So if you want more information on anything, email me and I will be glad to talk with you further on it. Thanks so much for your question today Melissa and I hope to hear from you again very soon. =)
Well my friends that concludes another Ask Jo segment but before I say goodbye, I just wanted to let you all know that I do take requests and I do take special orders. This is something I have not yet written about on the blog but I will be very soon. I just have a few things to work on first and that will be the next thing I do. If anyone is interested in knowing more, please email me. Also, I am taking requests so if there is anything you want to know or any type of tutorial you want to see, please let me know and I'd be glad to help.
 Well my friends that is all I have for today. I hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by and until next time....
Enjoy life's blessings~
