Sort of successfully too, but it did take me so long to do. Mind you, a Mylot friend helped me and so I now have a new avi. I tried to make it look like me. The hair cut is about right and the glasses too, I am a lot heavier and a lot older. What's that you said. Did you say Duh? I am so proud of myself so don't burst my bubble. Who knows what I will do next? Next I may start to put on photographs of me with my family. so to turn this into an acceptable discussion. What are you proud of right now?

Hey, that's a cute avatar! I like it. I've never really done anything like that in order for it to be an avatar. I do have such things on my Pogo profile because they provide it all, but I've never saved the pic to use elsewhere. And since you asked, the thing I'm most proud of at the moment is still the cookies I made last night, I just love how they came out, and they taste great too. My dinner this evening turned out well too and hubby really enjoyed it. I'm still waiting for my daughter to finally finish her food so we can dig into dessert. I made a cherry pound cake and I'm anxious to see if it has enough cherry flavor. I'll let you know.

Thanks Kat and Jill - I Like your photo too Kat but I have not yet got into pogo - aso this is something else for me to try! Many thanks to you both for responding, Blessings. Kat - you seem to be the cookie queen around Mylot. The dessert sounds delicious too.

I think it is fantastic when you learn something new on the computer, I love all those generators that you can do things and it does make novices like what I was very proud when you do things. Here is a site where you can turn your photos into sketches....good fun... http://www.dumpr.net/sketch.php

Hi che - I looked at paypal yesterday in an effort to join and I got so confused. I'm going to need help to open an account there too! I even phoned the head office ans could I understand what they were saying? No way. I hope that you get through with your paypal problems. That is my next mountain to climb!

That is really nice. Now I can asocciate you with a lovely picture. I like avatars, as it helps pick people out on discussions and things. Great job. My hubby cooked me a lovely Valentines dinner, as I am sick, so I guess I am very proud of him. He has made an awful mess though of my kitchen, but what can I say really LOL. Well great picture. I hope you keep it on here now.

Many thanks for responding and I do hope that you are now feeling better and I am so glad that your husband cooked dinner for you. That was a wonderful thing to do. Blessings

That av is really pretty! I love the hair and the rainbow in the background. Who cares if you're heavier and older than that character? What does it matter? Personality is key, and yours is beautiful!

Oh!! That is soooo cute! You must be extremely adorable! And I know that there are always rainbows in your tropical paradise of Jamaica! Do you wear those stylish glasses too? Very smart, you are! I am most proud of my kids. They amaze me all the time. I look at myself and my husband and I wonder at how they could have come from us! Don't get me wrong, I have some good characteristics and my hubby is a brilliant and wonderful man, but where did these beautiful, amazing kids come from? God has truly blessed us!!

Well, the glasses are spot on and so is the hair style. But I am forty years older and forty pounds heavier. I love rainbows as when I see one I remember God's promise to us. I am happy that you are proud of your children and I am sure that they and your husband are proud of you too. Blessings to all of you.

After starting a discussion last night about how to make my photo's transparent I did it today!! Yup....two people gave me the instructions and now I can make them transparent so I can put my poetry over them...I frame, mat and sell them at craft and art fairs! It was so easy sometimes you just need a little instruction! good for you! I had to get help too from Grandpa Bob on how to change mine!

I remember you starting that discussion and I did not have the knowledge to respond. I thought 'h*ll' she must be bright. I somehow sensed that you were a writer. I used to write short stories, articles and even worse poetry - but some were published. I'm so happy for you fir accomplishing your task and that mylotter's pitched in to help you. Isn't that wonderful? Thanks for responding.

Well, I'm proud of you. And I am proud of my father. He has done so much for me and my mom and sister, and even my brother-in-law. He looks after his 6 sisters better than his other 7 brothers do (two sisters are widowed), and my dad has less time and money than any of his brothers. He's such a good man. Even when I was younger and he was a workaholic (he was and is still a pastor, although he has been at only 2 different churches in the past 24 years), we all knew we could count on him. He got me a Valentine's gift yesterday. He didn't have to, in fact I asked him not to because I know how money is with my parents. But he did, and it touched my heart.
