Random & Fun

Jared’s mom is here in town visiting us, and tonight I took her for her first-ever(!) mani/pedi. Ahhh it was so nice. Then we went to A.C. Moore, who is having a HUGE sale on beads, and I picked out some beads for her to make me a necklace. Cute nails and craftiness, what could be better, right? :D

Wow, I’ve found so much cool stuff in the past day, I wanted to share:

  • Awesome retro-comic style artwork for the BAFTAs. Can you guess the movies without looking at the captions? :D {link}
  • A tutorial for drawing better human hands. I loved this! {link}
  • ScribblerToo - a really cool sketchy program that I’ve only just played with, but it has some amazing behavior when your line gets close to other lines. Check it out! {link}
  • And last, and geekiest: I’ve joked for a couple of years that as soon as they started making a miniature camera I could get implanted in my eye, that I could click with a blink, I would sign up to be a beta tester. Not implantable, but check out the progress on augmented reality contact lenses. Awesome! {link}
  • Oh, never mind, not last! Shutterfly posted a blog article I wrote for them on ideas for creating birthday albums. Leave a comment below the article for a chance to win a free class from me! {link}
