Playing Around With MoreLomo

This past weekend I had a chance to try out a new little App on my Iphone; MoreLomo. This is a free Iphone App that turns your everyday photos into works of art.

I began taking little photos around my house just to see what the program would do. Here is an average, everyday picture of some silk flowers in my home. From mundane to stunning!

Then my favorite Starbucks drink became my focus. Iced Vanilla Soy Chai never looked so good!


What about the Flyer from Trader Joe's, one of our local grocery stores? Cute, huh?


The App works pretty well on static things but what about people you ask? Well, here's my grandson Anthony. I've been told it makes him look like he's wearing lipstick. I don't know, I kind of like it. But then I think he's cute no matter WHAT. Just look at those dreamy eyes.


Then this weekend my hubby and I went down to our beach. The weather was beautiful, in the 70's, the tide was out and the beach was littered with shells and rocks. As I squatted down to pick up a complete sand dollar, I looked out over the Ocean and thought what a good picture it would make. I flipped on MoreLomo, sat my phone right down on the beach sand with the sand dollar in plain view and took this awesome picture. I'm in LOVE. Just look at the blues, browns and the way it is shaded all around the edges. This App gets a two thumbs up from me!!

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist! Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, bu

Grave's Disease

The Picture - Half Empty or Half Full? Many of you who know me know I've been fighting a battle with Graves' Disease for about a year and a half. It was diagnosed in February of 2007. I was so very sick back then I actually thought I was going to die! One of the main symptoms was a rapid heartbeat and mine was probably 110 beats a minute. I was put on Methimazole, about 40 mg. per day to knock down the worst of the symptoms. That has gradually been reduced until now my dose is 5 mg. a day. Then I got some really bad news this week, my numbers are beginning to rise again. My Dr. called on Wednesday and told me he wanted to do the radioactive iodine treatment. I just don't feel ready for that at all. He gave me until the 7th of November, my next appointment, to "see the numbers change". He says to take the medicine every other day and in two weeks go off it all together. Yeah, the numbers will change and it won't be for the better I'm sure. So, I went on the

Week 7: A Valentine's Pie To Remember!

Back with Week #7 of my 52 weeks of pie! Like most of us, I wanted to create a really beautiful pie, well actually a tart, especially for my Valentine, Wes. It had to be chocolate, decadent and beautiful all at the same time. After looking high and low on the internet for something good, I decided on THIS wonderful Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart featured on the Frayed Apron Blog. I mean, look at her picture! Who wouldn't want to make and eat this??!! (From the Frayed Apron Blog) Now, you may say a Tart isn't a Pie but it actually is. It has a crust and a filling so in my book, its a VARIETY of pie. Over the course of my "52 Weeks of Pie," you will see tarts, pies and galettes, a free form type of pie. So keep checking back, you'll be glad you did! The first different thing for me was the crust. It's put together much like the others with just the addition of cocoa powder. I did use the vodka again instead of the water or milk as suggested because
