About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Faye, something is wrong with my email contact on blogger. When I click on anyone's email link all that comes up is my goggle search engine!! So, I am using this way to answer your question about how hard is it to do a mosiac.

Not!!

go to picmonkey.com. click on mosaic and it will walk you through it in no time. Just be sure to save it to whatever picture program you have on your computer so you can use it easily on your blog. That's it. my email is latanebarton8@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Oh and by the way, the Marie that left a comment here is my daughter.

Oh, and another note.... picmonkey is free. You can join for more advanced stuff but there's a lot to use for free.
