Adobe Muse


Create websites as easily as you create layouts for print. You can design and publish original HTML pages to the latest web standards without writing code. Now in beta, Muse makes it a snap to produce unique, professional websites. (to be released in 2012)


If my dream program was ever to be made, it would be this. Coding makes my eyes and brain hurt. I need pretty pictures. How did I not know Adobe was coming up with this program? And it's so appropriately named...

I just downloaded the beta version... now I need to check out tutorials. :D

Happy EARLY 30th birthday to ME!!!

Happy happy joy joy... I did it!

I bought my camera - the Nikon D7000!!!!!

But my baby is not in my arms yet. :( They were out of stock all over the place, so I have to wait (hopefully) no longer than a week for it to come in.

I got a package deal with the 55-300mm lens, an 8GB memory card (which will fill in one of TWO memory card slots of the camera!), and an extra battery. All I am missing is the camera!!

Plus the camera comes with a kit lens that I do not own: the 18-105mm.

I'll have 6 lenses - the 18-55mm (kit lens with my D50), 50mm, 35mm, 55-200mm, 55-300mm and the 18-105mm. Yeehaw!!! I would like to add a fisheye lens to my collection... maybe as my 31st birthday present to myself next year. :)
