My amazing and talented sister introduced me to the app called Diptic….. you can do so many different things with this fantastic app…..but my favorite is the circle images……and miss cranny has put together a tutorial on her blogĀ  about how to create these circle images with your photographs! Super, super fun……

Did you all know, that you can turn your Instagram photos into magnets? Woot! I take photos with Instagram almost every day, and I swear this is the best news since……um….?….
Anyway, there is this awesome site called StickyGram that has “got it going on“! In only a few short minutes you can arrange a collection of photos, load them up in your cart, and just like that, your photos are on their way! Costs are very reasonable at 14.99 for a set of 9, shipping is free anywhere in the world, and the site is super user friendly. 
These little photo magnet collections would make awesome Christmas gifts! I just ordered my first set to see what I think…..and am totally stoked! Can’t wait to get them!
Just thought I would pass this along!

Found Goodness

It has been a busy week around here! My little “B” started junior high, and “C” started high school… I feel like I have been over the hill, through the woods and back again! My head is spinning with all of the “beginnings”, and I feel like an ATM machine with the button stuck on “please take your cash!” I am going to have to have a chat with these peeps….especially the algebra teacher who insists that my son needs a 125.00 calculator. What the what? She doesn’t know who she’s messing with. Just kidding!{I love you miss algebra teacher!}
Moving on…
Many of you know that I enjoy taking pictures, and have all kinds of apps on my iphone for such things. I have several different camera apps, but the one that I find myself using the most, and the one I have been shooting all of the first day of school pictures with this week, is Instagram
Remember, how I challenged you all to photograph every day events, and to be inspired by the little  things that get overlooked ? This app is perfecto for just that! It is my favorite way to snap a quick photo, edit it in two seconds, and save it. You can also publish to Facebook and Twitter with the push of a button as well. Seriously it is my fave, and you can look up those that you want to follow and keep up with their photos as well. Photo sharing at its best.
If you have an iphone and do not already use Instagram, I highly suggest a download…….and then look me up…. my user name is knackstudio. {all one word.} I would love to see what captures your attention, and you feel is photo worthy.
The best part?…..It’s FREE!

Don’t forget:

 If you all follow me on facebook at all….I am in the process of changing over to a new page, so please “Like” this new page if you would like to keep up with me. I will be shutting down the old page as soon as the transition starts winding down.
Thanks!
