Yesterday was school - I was supposed to have my new student but she was absent. My two little girls flung themselves into Photoshop and got a lot accomplished on their comic strips, made more business cards, and helped me divide up the scavenger hunt prizes, bag them, label and staple the bags. In fifth grade the children were to have a lesson with Alina (she twisted my arm last week and made me say it would be ok to do an online-reasearch lesson using hotlinking, which had me thinking, all week, that I should just quit the project). She doesn't understand that saying it's wrong just isn't good enough - especially when she has just said, "We are going to do it this way because it's really hard to do it the right way." She's young. Oh well. But Rich - the Cornell techie man - who actually understands - has come up with a plan for us to FTP to the Cornell server, so I emailed that I was falling at his feet to worship him. I don't have to quit in moral outrage - which is good.
Anyway, I had to beat on the children to make them pay attention to Alina, then explain everything to them. They function so much better when I'm there, it's amazing. I had them write down the urls, and although Alina thought they should just copy and paste, I responded that this way they are learning to actually identify not just a url but also an image file.
I added some more things to Grignano Salvage & Junk, like rolled up carpets, Mexican doors, and a mirror I made from an old back and white line drawing. Old line drawings are fun to use as they can become anything. I think this one was the decorative lines around an illustration or something. Don't remember.
Working on Doc's images for cards. Added more to the website. I said I would improve his images, but they need to be of a certain inspired quality - a philosophy he agrees with. Also we are dividing duties as I just don't feel like I can do the picture-taking as well as the manipulation. It seemed like it might've been so, except I am now spending lashings of time on each picture to improve it.
I spend last night judging the Elven Moor building competition. Today was an SL update, which they did quickly, bringing the grid online long before they had predicted. It pays to make looong predictions.
