i decided to make this past saturday a “me” day. my husband was off brewing beer with friends so it was perfect timing. i woke at 10am, video chatted with my mom, listened to music, did a bit of crafting, listed some things on ebay, cleaned out my closests, and watched 8 episodes of the US version of “The Voice” on hulu (i’m nearly caught up!). my day actually ended the next day at 3am! ok, i know this day sounds hectic to most, but believe me this was a perfect day for me. i am not a person that sits still, so to be able to pick each of those things that kept me busy (and truly enjoy them) was heaven.
we all need a “me” day from time to time! (have you had one recently?!)
so the one thing i did on saturday that i’ve yet to mention… i discovered a great new app on my ipad. the app is called CraftStudio and it’s brought to you by the crew over at Martha Stewart. while the app costs $4.99, it’s a craft lovers gem. it’s basically digital scrapbooking, stationary making and photo blinging (the non-technical term) all-in-one.
the app allows you to add a photo and then layer it with paper, punch shapes and designs, add stickers and sayings, custom write text, and much more. once you’ve finished, you can save the project, share it on socials, email, print, or send to snapfish and order as photos or greeting cards. currently the app has 4 themes you can mix and match with: everyday, doilylace, birthday party and nature. i will admit, the one thing missing is a holiday theme. this would be great for creating christmas cards.
above is a screenshot of my latest creation. yes, it’s a birthday card for a cat, but not just any cat. meet macy. macy the cream of the crop when it comes to felines. i’ve had her since she was 8 weeks old, and today is her 10th birthday! although she’s now a decade old, she still moves and communicates like a kitten. i always say that she’s a dog trapped in a cat’s body, but without the neediness of a dog. macy will play fetch, come to you on command, and she has a sassy little personality much like someone else i know. she’s pretty much perfect. happy birthday girl!
