I discovered the photo collage feature on Picasa2, which is available for free download. You should check it out. I've been wanting some software that would do this. Yay! Now I can put a bunch of pictures together that might be boring on their own and make them interesting.
So, I volunteered to be the birthday/going away card maker this year. I didn't take pictures of all my cards, but towards the end I did. They're less artsy than wordy. Most people really appreciate them, so it makes it worth it. One guy who doesn't usually say much saw me in the hall the other day and thanked me. He said it makes it worth leaving and coming back just so he can get another card.
