Jan 3

Ok, I cheated yesterday.

Flat out cheated.

I wrote a blog post with 5 lines.

I can still hear Michael…

‘Whaaat?!!!  That’s not a real blog post…but it was FUNNY….I’ll give ya that’

Gotta admit, it was kinda fun being a blog cheater.

Being all short and to the point.

Wait !!!…does this make me a BLOG HUSSY ???!!!

Hipstamatic Photo App

Because every blog hussy needs a HAWT GUY.  Well, he may be a mosaic, but he sure made me stop in my tracks.

This year was a banner year to learn about new Photo Apps and Pinterest…..

Don’t make me add links in here for you to go and download these apps.  I am on holidays, and I am staying LAZY.

WordPress added those links in.  Truth.

I’m still lazy.

I hate to put a downer on the mood {next photo}…

It was a sad day when Steve Jobs died.

 I wanted to capture the beauty of how people reached out and wrote LOVE NOTES to Steve.

 It was so beautiful….

Well, and I wanted to show off some more.

With my apps.

 Cause I can.

 Remember?!!  BLOG HUSSY.

Blog Hussy Def*ini*tion: One who stays up into the wee hours of the night, downloading Pinterest pics AND discovering new apps.

Who does that?  ME for crying out loud.

I have earned that lame job title.

Cartoonatic app – Pencil Jetty Mode

This next one is a photo with my Sony Camera {yes, I lurve you Sony}. I had to show these cupcakes made by my daughter Tristan.  Cupcake toppers created by cutting marshmallows on the diagonal, and dipping them in

* sparkles *

 Genius, pure genius …errrh…{like her mother}.

Cupcake Love


Who would have ever ‘thunk’ that you would get baking tips on my blog?  Well, this blog hussy is turning over a new leaf.  I don’t know what that really means, but I think that means that you may very well have to look at my one more cupcake picture.  Because they are brilliant.  Now I know why we are going broke paying for her Uni education.

Seriously pretty cupcakes !


Can’t tell you what mode this next photo was in. I can tell you that it was the Hipstamatic Photo App.  That’s all the info you need anyway.  I can’t tell you every single thing.  You have to be smart, all on your own.  Or lazy chill just like me.  You will then discover that if you just SHAKE YOUR PHONE, yah, I said SHAKE IT {!!!!!}, it will change the photo mode within the app.  I had to discover that from having a temper tantrum reading the instructions of the app.  Then, I stood, all calm and collected in the photo.

Hipstamatic App


YES~ I read the instructions in the app.  Reading instructions makes me want to punch things. So you can take the easy road, and learn how to have fun with apps with my guided assistance. If I keep up like this, I may become a blogging Apple Genius. Bet they have awards for that profession.  When I get the award, I am going to prance it all around our house.  In front of my audience. My four kids, hubby and my big dog Oliver.

The cool thing to note here, is if you shake your phone~ it changes up the mode in the app.  It is like getting a surprise in the Cracker Jack Box.

You never know what awaits you.  A tattoo, or a miniature thing-a-ma-jiggy.

Or try Cartoonatic App, because it is a hoot too. Especially when you are taking a picture of wine and chocolate.

    Oooh Rosa …there are sooo many awesome apps~ You will have so much fun. Cartoonatic and Hipstamatic of course. Another favourite is WHATSAPP…great for free texting (international and all), location sharing, photo and voice memo sharing. Brilliantly easy to use too. Have a blast ! Lynne xx
