A Super-Fun Fix!

STOP! Before you read this post or even look at any of it…you need to go to this link and read it first or else this post won’t make any sense whatsoever.

I’m not kidding! No cheating…and no peeking! Go read this link and then head back on over here to read this post. Trust me, you’ll be happy you listened to me. 🙂

Did you leave yet? What are you waiting for?!?…go click on that link or…(I’m going to pull out a “mom trick” now)…if you don’t, I’m going to be SO VERY DISAPPOINTED IN YOU!


Did you go read it? Oh goody! Now, aren’t you glad you listened to me?!?

I’m hoping you are thinking that that was the funniest thing you’ve ever read before because we worked our tushies off for weeks preparing it for everyone to read it on this fine morning. HEE!!

So, to go along with that AMAZING tutorial…I am going to play along with one other “fix-it” that I came up with. This one is going to be just as awesome and horrifyingly wonderful as those other fixes were so prepare to be AMAZED.

Angie’s Photo “Tip”:

How many times have you seen a photo like this one where the background is all brown, dull, boring, blah and blurry? I mean, who in the world would want to see that?! Is this how a background looks in real life? I think not!


I say, bokeh-smokeh. It’s time to keep things real and show how our lives really look behind the blurry background!

Here are a few much more realistic, “beautiful” examples:

A garage that has all the items you need readily available for your summer playing or working pleasure. The beauty is just astounding me!


How about a “school morning kitchen” right after four kids and a hungry hubby have torn through it? Oh – that is so much better than a bunch of boring blur!


Maybe a colorful, fenced-in playground?


Oh, oh, oh…I know! Some of the gorgeous local scenery.

Water tower…OR….blur? Water tower…OR…blur? Water tower…OR…blur?

Oh yeah…I think we both know which background would win out. This photo is such a keepsake now!


Even better, how about some of the beautiful local cows? My children can now commune with nature without ever leaving the privacy of our home. The beauty of this touching moment I “captured” just brings tears to my eyes. {Please excuse me while I find a tissue…sniff, sniff.}


Thank goodness for an incredible photo-editing program that was able to “fix” this photo right up. I don’t know what I’d do if I had to leave it with the ugly, blurry, bokeh background. I would have been utterly devastated!



I hope you had as much fun with this as I did. I’m thinking we pulled off one of the best April Fool’s jokes ever!

You can come play along with us…show us how you would “fix” up a photo of your choice on this fine April morning…


And, of course, a huge APRIL FOOL’S DAY to you!!
