I have a confession.  I use a MOUSE in all my editing.  I have tried 2x now to use Wacom tablets.  Everyone says they are a must have – you must edit using a “pen” not a “mouse.”  I use to have the Intuos.  Tried it once.  It felt weird to me so I gave up.

Then I bought this top of the line, state of the art Wacom Cintiq 12WX – you literally draw right on the screen.  You see your image right under you.  Yet, even after spending $1,000, I just cannot get myself to use it.  It just sits here, I stare at it.  But nothing.  I smile as I look at my logitech mouse and say, “hmmm, wonder if or when I will pick up that pen…”

Anyway, as a result of me staring at it too long, and me knowing that so many salivate at the thought of owning one of these, I decided to see if any of you is interested in purchasing it from me.  Retail is $999.  It is basically new.  It sits here set up but not used.  So now is your chance to get one.  I will sell for $899 ($100 off), plus shipping – I can ship UPS or Fed Ex.  If it does not sell, I guess I will just keep staring at it.  But this is getting silly.  I think I will try again in a few years.  But for now I will just hug my mouse icon smile Cintiq 12WX for sale   MCP is just a mouse lover I guess...

If you are interested, send me a comment in the “comment box” and ask me to contact you.

Thanks for hearing my pen dimemna.

    I know many of you have been writing asking how my father-in-law has been doing.  He was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma, a rare form of cancer, a year ago.  He went through extremely heavy chemo and then had a bone marrow transplant. 

    I am thankful to all those who kept him in your prayers.  He is now cancer free and doing a lot better.  He is still trying to regain his energy and has some long term issues from the chemo.  But he is doing really well.

    There was an article today in the Detroit Free Press newspaper in case you want to learn more about him.  See below. 

    And I am sure many of you already have downloaded these actions from my site, but in case you have not, here are the TAKE ACTION ON CANCER AWARENESS ACTIONS for photoshop.  The action converts your photo to a rich black and white and has 14 optional color overlays to chose from, each representing a ribbon color to fight cancer.  If you download these actions, all I ask is that you please just say a prayer for my father-in-law that his health continues to improve.

    My twins are spending the night at camp – their 1st overnight

    So I had to share with all of you…  My girls are doing the “overnight” tonight at their day camp.  They LOVE camp, and have been asking for weeks.  Well I decided since there is only one more week left after tomorrow, I would let them.  So they are at camp right now.  Tonight.  I am so excited for them.  I feel like they are growing up.  They are 6 1/2 years old and this summer at camp is really helping them build amazing self image and self esteem.  I am just so happy with this camp. 

    They have gone on a pontoon boat, do archery, ga-ga-ga, paddleboats, mini golf, pony rides, kickball, gymnastics, arts and crafts and so much more.  They are learning to swim – they were scared of the water (but are overcoming that fear) and I am so proud of them.  They are just so much more confident than they were 6 weeks ago.  It is so fun to see.

    Anyway, I had not taken pictures all summer of them at camp since they take a bus and now a van.  So today, before they left for the overnight, I took pictures of them with all their “gear.”

    Here they are…  So pumped and excited.  Thanks for enjoying this big moment with me.
