New Photo Apps!

I've downloaded two new apps for my iPhone 4S (Camera + and Afterlight), and have been experimenting with them this weekend. There are so many filters for color, texture and lord-knows-what-else that it can be intimidating at first; I suppose I should just read the insturctions, but come on, it's way more interesting (ahem, time-consuming) to just try every. single. filter. on each picture! Below is a slide show of my weekend creations (hello very green cat!).  What apps do you use for your photos?

Finally, Wednesday!

Congrats, you made it to hump day! Every Wednesday I post a "Pause for Five" image on Instagram: five things I have in my house or found while I was out shopping or just thought looked fun together. Things you normally wouldn't see together.  So here it is (and I just downloaded some fun camera apps, so I had a go with them on this shot): park bench, doll head (found it in my garden last year, creeeeeeepy!), key, pink pig and copper pot. Do you have a great 'fiver' image? Email it to me and I'll post it!

My First Art Fair!

I'm thrilled to tell you that I've been accepted to the 43rd annual Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival! I was a bit nervous about getting in because it's a juried show, I've never done one, and they wanted pictures of my booth! Ack! I don't have a booth! Because I've never done a show! So I threw myself into the process of creating a fake booth so I could submit the skellies for this festival.

That hurdle cleared, it was on to the process of creating a REAL booth! I got a 10x10 tent, which takes up nearly my whole backyard, and I made a 35-pound weight for each of the legs from PVC pipe and concrete (see the tutorial I followed). They feel like they weigh a lot more than 35 pounds!

I'll post pictures of the display as I get it worked out; in the meantime, why not set the festival dates on your calendar (July 26-28), you know, in case you want to come down and see the skellies in person :) 

Skelly Love, Leigh
