The ‘I Ordered an iMac Thank You Pack’



Hi, Hi…Happy, Happy Tuesday!

How are you?  How’s your week going? 

Okay, I mentioned on Friday… that I ordered my iMac!!  I feel like I should call it ‘our’ iMac… cause you all were so supportive…and thanks to your texture purchases…my iMac dream has come true.

According to Fedex… my baby will be here tomorrow.  Wooo hoo!!

Anyhow, I whipped up an extra fab, extra layered set of textures for you all.  And I’m giving them up for $5.00 as a thank you.  I’m talking hours and layers of love… and 4 high res beauties…

The offer is good til Thursday..then I’m bumping the price up to $15.00.

Check out the before and afters…  but first…check ‘em out!

MAJOR GRUNGE my friends… Major!


left to right, top to bottom: coffee and grunge, prim and proper, labeled up, my 2 cents

I can not wait to see what you all do with these babies. 

And honestly, there are no words to tell you how cool it is to see my textures on your beautiful photos… thank you all so much!! 

Here’s a few more before and afters . I used a mixture of all 4 textures on each of today’s images.



and one more...


And I just had to snap a pic of Benjamin Button…as he sat beside me while I took these photos…

Ben has been subtly textured with coffee and grunge. :)

I can barely take how sweet he is.. honestly…so flippin..CUTE..  But I have a confession…I have not left him alone…not once… and I can’t seem to bring myself to do it… He’s been with us for almost 2 months…  oh dear… One of these days I won’t have a choose…and he’s going to be completely shocked. I take him everywhere with me/us… Ugh.. I’m so pathetic… 

I’m pretty sure Andy is smiling down saying.. ‘Good job, Ben… We’ve got her right where we want her…’

‘sigh’… for puppy love.

Alright my friends…  thanks and thanks.. and thanks again.. for the iMac!

Much love…and gratitude…



p.s. The Skinny-Mini eCourse is under way… We have 515 members!  Can you believe it?  I decided to run one more FREE round in December.  You can get the details HERE.

p.s.s. it’s not too late to sign up for the new class -  Art of Texture – The Secrets Revealed … Just sayin’…  Get the scoop HERE. :)

I made the change from a PC to an iMac about 2 years ago, and have never, ever regretted my decision! I am all Mac now, even added the MacBook Pro for when I'm traveling and love every minute of it! Congratulations and welcome to the club! :-) Thank you for the special texture pac can't wait to try them, and can't wait to hear how you love your new toy! If you don't already have one, get the "Magic Mouse" multi-touch, cordless, it works great!

So excited that I could afford your I ordered an iMac special! Wish I could take some of your courses, but I'll be traveling for a while - will keep an eye out for courses starting after mid-December. LOVE your textures and love that you take such good care of Ben (taking him everywhere is great for his socialization).

Kim - First off, the textures are gorgeous. I'll buy them as soon as I get home. Secondly, you will love your mac. I have a MacBook Pro and a Mac Mini and we love them both. I will never go back to any other computer. I am getting an IPhone too, so they will all be compatible. Thirdly, I so want to take the Art of Texture but I have to wait til summer, so please offer it again next summer. Lastly, I LOVE THAT DOG!! He has got the sweetest face and i'm sure he's just as sweet in temprament. Have fun hooking up today. Thanks for all you do. We are all grateful.

November 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJo Nelson

OHhhhh Kim, he really IS adorable and reminds me so much of our Andy when he was a pup, he is so very handsome. I too have a hard time leaving my doggy, I hate to hear him cry when I go out the door... yikes it's awful and makes you feel so guilty.

Awesome textures, I think I might have to have them, and happy happy IMac 'ing :)

November 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLynn

I have absolutely NO idea how to use textures or even how to LOAD the darned things, I am that much of a newbie, but can't pass this up -- I'll figure it out!

November 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLori Anderson

Congrats, Kim. You'll love your iMac. Wouldn't give up my MacPro and Mini for anything—well worth the extra $$. I'm anxious to try the new textures & move along in the Skinny class. Not much time to do so, making Christmas presents, but I'm addicted. Going over now to check out the December eCourse. p.s. When on my MacMini, I use a Kensington Trackball & it really zooms along & helps if you have arthritis &/or carpal tunnel. pps. Ben is sweet, reminds me of my last black lab Quest (BIG sweet male, bless his heart) & now Sadie (small female), who came just in time to learn from Quest. Such sweeties & loyal friends.

this is for Lynn above - take kim's skinny class. A couple months ago i didn't even have photoshop or anything. I found Kim's blog and read about her skinny class. I bought PSE8 and took the class and i'm amazed at how much i learned. Granted, I sure don't know everything - far from it - but I learned so much. Kim is a great teacher, the videos are so easy to follow along and you will learn tons. give it a try. you will not be sorry.

November 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJo Nelson

sorry - my message was for Lori Anderson above - not Lynn. Sorry.
