Have you hugged anyone today

A little playing around with my home made lightbox, and inadequate lighting. Followed by more playing around in photoshop elements. Sprinkle in a few hug quotes and you've got yourself a post.

(all four are the same picture starting with the original straight off the camera, and ending with my finished picture)

A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.  ~Bil Keane, "Family Circus"

You can't wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.  ~Author Unknown

There's something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart,
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part....
~Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr., "A Simple Hug"

A hug delights and warms and charms,
that must be why God gave us arms.

[E]very day you should reach out and touch someone.  People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.  ~Maya Angelou


  1. These are really lovely quotes... and the picture... is so so sweet! *HUGs back to you Ann* Have a great weekend!

  2. Lovely quotes and picture! Hugs to you and Duke! Is that a little statue you have? It's so cute! I've never seen anything like it.

  3. Hugs make your body release oxytocin, the "happy" hormones too! So hug someone and make you both feel happy. :)

  4. Not yet, but then again it's only 4:22a.m. (think I'll wait a bit ;o)

  5. Everything is perfect:the rhymes and the very,very sweet statue.
    Really is so suitable for any time to be more kind or more understanding and loving person.
    I love you !(for your Teddy bear)
    hugs, aureliaeugenia

  6. That is so true, there really is nothing better that a good hug but a big smile from someone is always nice too. Great quotes and love the picture. Hugs to you Ann. Take care.

  7. How cute! Great setup and processing!

  8. I love them all, but if i had to pick a favorite it is number 2. so sweet and i like all the quotes. hugs to you from Florida, wish we could meet each other. how did you make your lightbox, i thought about it when i saw one on someone's blog that they bought.

  9. Love all these quotes! The photo shop really amazing! Cyber hugs to you and Duke.
