Time can really fly by fast. I can't believe it's been over two months since we moved the girls to their new farm, the holidays are through, and everyone is well acquainted with the new year, eagerly anticipating spring. I know I'm ready for spring! I can't wait to see all the green starting to pop up, followed by the colorful flowers, the warmer breezes, and the bustling of farm and wildlife.
But that's not really what this particular post is about. Instead, I just wanted to share a couple of fantastic new photo apps for the iPhone that I discovered this week! Each of these pictures was just ordinary to begin with. Then they were 'shocked' using ShockMyPic, and finally captioned with Overgram to create a work of art! I truly love what can be done with photography nowadays, and I especially love ShockMyPic. It creates sort of a "paint-by-number" effect with your photos, that really makes the details and color stick out.
I love photographing nature, but sometimes when I look at the pictures afterward, they just don't seem to have captured the color and contrast. Now the details are drawn back out and enhanced.
And nifty little captions added with Overgram......
I seem to be spending more time on Instagram these days. Check out the link on the right! Have a great day!

|Zendala Dare #28 (template from The Bright Owl)|
Here's today's list, and as you can see, I've still got a lot to do! Most are in preparation for family that is coming to stay at the farm for the Thanksgiving weekend. But others are 'long overdues'. Like plucking (angora) rabbits - starting with Runtdungus Fletcher (aka: Runt), getting some custom (craft) orders finished, and attending to our Kombucha brew. Oy! That one's definitely long overdue. Both of our SCOBYs are about 3 inches thick. If there is anyone other there locally who is looking to start their own kombucha, we can get you hooked up with a fully functional SCOBY! Otherwise, my sister read and shared with me yesterday that the extra SCOBYs can go to our chickens. I think I'm going to try that.
Above is my Zendala Dare #28. I am also behind with my dares, but I do have so much fun with them! Can you see the octopus in the center with it's arms branching out. I really love this zentangle, called Suckers by Lizzie Mayne. I played around with adding the sharp Cephalopod beak in the middle. Then I kept with a sort of sea monster theme and added portholes, planks, and seaweed (in mooka form). I was pretty happy with it. I've only recently (within the last couple of months) begun participating in Erin's Zendala Dares. If you are interested in participating, check out the link on the right side of the screen.

Surprisingly, so far we only lost power for about an hour earlier this evening. It was of course while we were making dinner. We decided to run down into town and grab a pizza, and of course came back to find the electric restored. What are you going to do? I have a feeling, however, that another outage is imminent. So I think I am going to call it a night, head to bed, and hope to wake up with the house still in it's original spot! =)

Tonight is not a cauldron-making night, nor is it a spinning night, however. It's been a long week and I'm quite exhausted. I think I will just sit back and knit for awhile, until these tired eyes just can't stay awake any longer. With only four hours of sleep last night, I think that time will come sooner than I think.
