Thanks to the genius inspiration of THIS Georgia blogger I now have found a new digital pastime: Fake through the viewfinder pics. AND... I discovered just this very day the magic and mystery of Photoshop Actions. Check 'em out HERE . Flickr also has a TTV group. Plenty to look at over THERE . Maybe when you're sufficiently inspired, you too, will dash outside in the fading light to snap a picture of your neighbor's laundry hanging out to dry.
If Pancake Boy didn't need me to help him with his regrouping and if the rest of the little punks didn't need to stencil and print with the New & Improved JUMBO square doilies I just got. Well then, I'd call in sick and spend every last cotton-picking minute of my day blissfully turning the pages of this Stack-O-Journals. These belong to my friend, RANDI One jolt of visual excitement after another.
But tomorrow is Friday so I'll content myself with thoughts of my 48 hour vacation that begins tomorrow at exactly 2:25 pm. Plenty of time for making more fake TTV photos, working on the little canvases, going to town in the visual journal, burying myself in my new book, getting out the Christmas decorations, and making more crispy-edged roasted brussel sprouts. (Stop frowning already. These ARE NOT your mother's brussel sprouts.) 48 hours can last forever if you have a strong enough imagination.
I heard MOLLIE Katzen talking up her new book on the radio the other morning. I've made these roasted brussel sprouts twice since then. I'm pretty sure you're gonna want some. STAT.
Quick! Go look at THESE heartbreakingly beautiful winter photos.
Then go see what HULA 70 does for kicks on Friday afternoons. I want to get a note that says, "Your hair looks good today." Or maybe "You look great in those pants!" Don't you?
I adore APRIL'S art and photographs. I JUST discovered she had a blog too. Oyvey. Her archives are well-worth a good archeological dig. Really.
