I'm Totally, Completely and Utterly Addicted...

To this gadget (via little brown pen) that converts your photos into "vintage" images.

It. Is. Seriously. Cool.





Given that we're a mere two days away from going to the State Fair of Texas (one of our favorite events of the year by far*), I used it to convert a few snaps from last year's fair excursion. Now I'm planning to print them on our rockin new printer (more on this later, as this baby's been a major lifesaver in accomplishing #20) and tape them up on the frames wallpaper.

* I conducted our yearly family poll this morning on what everyone is most excited about at the fair... For the second year in a row, Audrey voted for cotton candy but swapped out the twirling monkey ride for the ferris wheel. I'm all about a fletcher's corn dog and watching the parade. Bryan is 100% jonesin for a corn dog... Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Just. Get. A. Corn Dog.

One word about that gadget: L-O-V-E. Also, we are huge fans of our State Fair. Corn dogs and cinnamon rolls!

Isn't it the best?!? The day my friend sent it to me, I spent waaaaay too much time converting every photo I could get my hands on. I made a few really cool ones and gave them to my grandma, and she loved them!

Love the vintage! I just did a few from my Eng shoot at the fair yesterday! They look great. I have tons of stuff like this I can turn you on too. Remind me sometime.

i spent 20 minutes staring at that printer at Staples last saturday - but the 15 year old kid working there couldn't tell me a thing about it. does the ink last for a while, or does refilling it kill you? it seems like apart from that, it is the answer to all my printing dreams-come-true...
