instagram weekend & some favorite apps!

Hiya! How was everyones weekend? Ours was FANTASTIC. It was filled of hours upon hours at the river (the spot we go to on the river has UMBRELLA service!!!!!!, yes that's right folks, for $6 they will CARRY an umbrella to your CHOICE spot DIG it into the ground and steak it down to prevent flying away in the wind storm and looking like a crazy lady chasing it down the beach) (best $6 ever spent. ever) with yummy orange cream floats and hot dogs. Hours upon hours of floating in tubes and making new friends.  I can't wait until J is home and I can share all the new fun spots the girls and I have found!!



It was just lovely. You want to know one of the best things about spending all day swimming? Both the girls were asleep by 7:45. Oh yes! Two happy and very tired girls! :) 

So my two favorite new apps for the iphone are called PicFx (love the bokeh effect), and Phonto (hello typography!).  Here is a photo I used both of these as well as instagram. 


Want to hear my FAVORITE thing about phonto?? YOU CAN UPLOAD your OWN FONTS!!!! Including... DINGBATS! Yes that's right friends... just THINK of the possibilities. So in the photo above I used a paint-splatter dingbat font and just combined them as I wanted them, as well as a butterfly font. There really are so many possibilities, and I can't wait to play with it more!!

What are your favorite apps these days? Please share with the class!
Talk to you soon!

  10. This is really good information! I don't have a smart phone at all...yet! I will be getting the iPhone 5 when it comes out in Sept/Oct so I am gearing up for that. In the meantime I am wondering what is the name of the font you used for the "when it counts..." text? Thanks for sharing!
