I made myself an M&M creature at PlanetM&M, and then I couldn't download and publish it here. It even had a cool, color-coordinated coffee cup, so I was a little down about the whole process.
So I did what any self-respecting, computer-literate adult will do; I asked my daughter to help. She took a break from her homework and with hands covered in charcoal (she was working on an art project), guided me through an option for copying and pasting my new Image into Adobe Photoshop.
But first, she insisted on making a few changes. She didn't like the hair shade or the hairstyle I'd chosen (Mom! You have bangs!), so she found something she deemed more suitable. She decided the glasses should be colorful, too. Am I really that colorful? No, don't answer that. I don't wear bunny slippers in public, either, but these were too cute to pass up.
And again, we couldn't do a clean download, so we did a printscreen and the cropped it in Adobe.
I must say, I think I look pretty good in green. I think I'm ready for Earth Day. At least I have chocolate.
