This week on Totes Awesome Channel, we’re discussing our favorite weakness.
Bob the Dog celebrated his two year adoption anniversary this week! I’m so in love with that pup despite all the trouble he gives us!
Speaking of Bob. A few weeks ago for Friday 7 Quick Takes I told you I was struck by inspiration at the same time there was a sale at Michaels. I wanted to dabble in paint and was overzealous and bought seventeen canvases. I’ve since painted one and mod podged two. Here’s one of my mod podge projects! I printed instagram photos with Snapsagram. And then just lacquered them on a 12″ x 12″ canvas.
Yes. I am a crazy dog lady who made dog wall art.
I love my friends and I think they’re all great humans. Great humans. So when I say my friend David might be the best human I know, it says a lot. I explain a little bit of why I think that in this blog post. Anyway, he recently sent me a little booklet in the mail of handwritten quotes. I’ve been sharing one a day on my Instagram account and am getting appreciative feedback.
One of my closest friends (whom I told you about last week and who is moving to Austin from Boston!) gifted me her old DSLR. Learning how to use a “fancy camera” has been on my bucket list since high school! It’s been three days since I’ve been teaching myself tiny little things every day. I document the tiny little facts I learned in a new journal I started specifically for this. Needless to say, all the photos taken so far are beyond crappy. But! But, I’m adoring that camera bag I picked from Amazon.
P.S. If you’re a neophyte like me and are interested in learning, the Austin Food Bloggers Alliance is hosting a one day photography camp. Tickets are open to the public starting tomorrow. If you come we can learn together!
I’m still basking in the happiness glow of a great Labor Day Weekend in Houston. I really appreciated my Houston friends being open-minded enough to let me lump them all into one lunch date. I had confidence that they would all like each other. This group photo from that lunch makes me happy.
Thanks Thomas for the photo!
