I’m Back……

…….with absolutely nothing crafty or handmade to show you. It’s been very busy at work this week so I haven’t been in my studio for over a week. I’m so pooped when I get home it takes me all my inner strength just to make dinner then I flop on the lounge and it’s only 7.30 and I’m struggling to keep my eyes open.
But I have discovered a couple of fantastic apps that I have been playing with on my ipad. The first app is called Whims and if you love fonts and typography you will love this. It’s been described as instagram for words and it’s a lot of fun and there are some very clever people creating amazing whims.
You can change the font, size and colour of your words also the background colour and it’s extraordinary the way some creators have manipulated some keyboard characters to “draw” pictures.
Here’s a few of mine.





It’s a free app, so go and download it and have some fun.
The other app that I really love is Wider Image. It comes from Reuters, the worlds largest new agency and it’s a photo journalism app. Amazing images from around the world with the story behind the photo by the photographer. Lots of information, with facts and statistics and the ability to follow favourite photographers. I could spend hours looking at the photos and reading the photographers stories.

I’m hoping work will slow down a little next week and I can get back in the studio and create. Because as my Whim says, I just like making stuff.

  1. lol...I know the work is in my studio, but sometimes it can feel a bit too much! Nodding off in my favourite chair can give me a sore neck... :~)

    I'll check out the sites...I've recently downloaded Instagram on my iPhone but haven't had a chance to play yet.

    I'll check the other two out...thanks.

  2. Very cool! I've just downloaded Whims for both my iPhone and iPad and can't wait to play around with it. Thanks for the recommendation!
