    From checking your bio, you sound as great as your work. I went to the Kansas City Art Institute, funny I find you online several spots, and we are in the same town. (Not stalking you or anything :-) But I do some SU private swaps email me if you might like to join. I am figuring out CS3 on my own while working full-time, going to DeVry and doing SU too, plus mom and wife jobs. That workaholic thing, got it too. Nice to meet you on-line.

    found you through the 2s4y site, and have followed a few of your links (both color sites are wonderful). I hope to be able to build a site like yours (I’m just a beginner). I’m using Photoshop Elements right now, but have cs2 that I bought a long time ago, but never loaded it, am thinking I should load and try to use it. I look forward to following your progress.

    HI Savitri,

    Your post is amazing. Your name is Indian. Savitri is Shiva’s wife. Shiva is a god in indian mythology and even Savitri is godess.

    I love your about me facts :) Especially the one that “claims” you’d invest your money….only after a $10,000 lens….sounds like me!

    I’ve added you to my blogroll because you’re just TOO good and TOO inspiring not to!
