You will love using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020

I am so excited to tell you about Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020.  I am a Mom who LOVES taking photos.  Whether it be a "staged" photo or just snapping pictures at a family or sports event, I literally have taken thousands of photos.  Now that I have the Photoshop program, I can do so many things with my photos now.

Not only can I make some great photos, I can add the photos to gifts.  Getting a personalized gift with a photo is always a treasure to me.  It does not matter what the holiday is, everyone always enjoys getting photo gifts.

There are so many things you can do with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020.  I will admit, I have a LOT to learn. You can revitalize your photos with automatic colorization and auto-select your subjects with just one click. There are some great new Auto Creations:  B&W Selection, Pattern Brush, Painterly, and Depth of Field effects. You make people looks their best with automatic skin smoothing. 

 The above picture is one of my daughter's senior pictures.  I decided to give it a rustic look using Painterly. It was as easy as clicking the mouse on your computer.  I love how it turned out.  Since her pictures are a farmhouse rustic look, I think it matches perfectly.  I cannot wait to buy some items with her pictures on it or to get it printed and framed.

So much of what is in Adobe Photoshop Elements is done with the click of your mouse.  Other things, you have to go more in depth.  I made this cute pic using the pencil sketch effect.  This is my niece, Olivia.

One thing I plan on making now that I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020 is graduation invitations.  Not only will I save myself a whole lot of money, I can personalize them to fit my daughter.  

The possibilities are endless with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2020.  Make sure to buy yours from Best Buy :

Two Must Haves for Any Kitchen

I love my Crock Pot!  I can make so much in it and it saves me so much time in the kitchen,  Plus, we all love the aromas of our food slow cooking.  I have the smaller Crock Pot and the larger oval one.  they are both a few years old but still work fine.  I wanted a newer model and was thankful to receive this Crock-Pot 7-Quart Easy to Clean Cook & Carry Slow Cooker.  It's a beauty. 

I love the locking lid.  I can pick it up and no worry about spills or the top falling off and breaking.  I can take it with me to family gatherings and just plug it up and the food stays warm.  And, this Crock Pot cleans so easily!  Check out the video HERE 

I absolutely cannot wait to start using my Food Saver.  I am tired of throwing away food that has been freezer burnt.  I buy in bulk, because it is cheaper.  I always break the family size packages of meat down into three or four family servings.  But, no matter what kind of freezer bags I use, there is always that frost on top or it does not last long in the freezer.

With a Food Saver, it seals the bags without any air.  The air is what causes the food to go bad so quickly. Not only will the Food Saver save me money on food, it will save room in the freezer or fridge.

4 Must Have Fashionable Earrings

Disclosure:  I received these products in exchange for this review.

I am always on the hunt for unique earrings, aren't you?  I found this cool company called Whitl Woodworking that has some pretty unique fashion for your ears and they sent me a few pairs for my Holiday Gift Guide.  You REALLY need to check them out.  Their earrings are handmade and a lot of craftsmanship go into each pair.

 These Sugar Skull earrings are so cool. They are made from wood and are very lightweight.  I am not a fan of any heavy earrings and these are light as a feather.  Pair them with your fave t-shirt and jeans for a casual night!

I am in awe of these Maple Leaf wood earrings!  They remind me so much of the fall, Thanksgiving, and the rustic colors we wear this time of year.  I think these are classy.  They look so chic, too.

These are my favorite pair of earrings!  Aren't they adorable?  The antlers against the brown leather and buffalo plaid scream Christmas!   They are simple, yet elegant.  I know I will be wearing these a LOT!

Leather earrings are trending right now and I love it.  You can wear them with any outfit.  I think they will become classics.

I love that these earrings are made right here in the USA.  Hurry and order your favorite pair now!
