Ms. Muse gets a Facelift


My dears, after spending days neglecting my fashion/celebrity blog, Ms. Muse, I decided to spend a little time working on it today. I made a new header and added a couple special features. (One involving George Clooney!) Check it out and let me know what you think!!!

I spent most of the day working on the art for the header. (see above) It was wonderfully relaxing, except for photoshop with all its complicated steps and routines. ...I eventually gave up. I'm off tomorrow to find a photoshop book, I would have suffered less aggravation cooking one of Martha Stewart's (complicated) recipes for dinner! O well! ox

It's looking good,kid. Be glad you can have Photoshop...I'm just sayin'...xo svs/gg

Will check in further, later. Stinkin' humid in DC & my spaniel-ear ponytails are curly. Not as cute as one would think/hope. But leaving you with that image as you're a BB fan.

Off to watch adorable Federer whoop someone (forget name), I hope in French Open.

I love your new header, you did a great job. Photo Shop is the best, I could play on it all day. Sometimes I do, (don't tell).

Adobe's Classroom in a Book
The Photoshop WOW Book (The one I have is by Linnea Dayton & Jack Davis

Your redo simply is stunning. How fortunate that we'll continue to have this extra venue as a place to appreciate your sensibility, which clearly is too capacious for a single format. Congratulations!

What version of Photoshop do you have Tina? I have the above mentioned Adobe Classroom in a Book for Photoshop CS3, that I will send you in the mail if you want. It's wonderful!

The new header for Ms. Muse is really good! You're so talented in so many ways my dear...Terrific job!

Check out for tips. Photoshop is like Marmite, totally polarising software :)

It's me again. Will you read my story, The Little House, on my blog? Excuse me for barging in here with the request. If you don't have time, I understand.

Hey Tina & all...don't forget the Tony Awards are on tonight (which is closer here in DC than where some of you are.....but hoping there will be a mention of Natasha Richardson, I imagine so.)

Looks wonderful, my dear! Very chic and full of lovely things to explore. The banner is fantastic, I admire you so for the photoshop struggle. I have tried a couple of times and gave up. I despise manuals and if I cannot figure out something easily myself I give up. Not a very good trait, I know! xoxo

Ah, good old Photoshop. This all sounds very familiar, I've had many battles with it but with a lot of patience and a bit of trial and error it all comes right in the end. A very good job you've done too!

Oh, thank you !!! thank you! i wont give up on photoshop yet (i wish it could give ME the facelift)...

I'm with ms. tarnoff, though. I hate reading manuals. Usually i don't which explains why i still can't work my phone.
